Repression and its effect ::Englyn Cyrch
Repression
(Englyn Cyrch)

It's process of forcing thoughts
into unconscious mind, toss
painful or dangerous views
from bruise of conscious for rots.
~*~ *~

Its effect 
(Englyn Cyrch)

These memories appear through
subconscious means as a cue
in an altered form, like dreams
that seems to happen as true.

I won't :: Englyn
I won't  ( Englyn Unodle Union)

Afraid to look at your eyes
I know well, I'm not that wise
to infer message, it tries to inform;
does it confirm build ties?

Tell me, why did you smile? Why?
Didn't you know, I'm little shy?

I.

The eldest of unknowns, on hill or heath,
The hoary standing stones--
Secret, silent tombs or thrones-- 
Huddle where the tempest moans.

II.

In birch-bright woods we find fairy circles,
Rings of toadstools designed,
It seems, by some feral mind,
Unfathomed by humankind...

Through velvet blue, star-strewn skies...Read More

I'm Still Love
I won't forget who I am,
though who I am may be forgotten,
children gone,
no more home,
I'm still love.

Will always endeavor to remain,
no matter all that's been taken,
Though on my own,
I'm not alone,
I'm still love.

Five Thousand Soon Will Reach

This is the number I do want to reach;
Maybe soon Trump they will impeach;
Makes us nervous;
Never joined service;
Lesson to politicians we should teach.

Autumn
The bright green leaves are turning,
the forests look like burning;
cold weather is returning.

The days are growing shorter,
we're in the third year quarter;
the squirrel becomes a hoarder.

The stags in woods are clashing,
after the does they're dashing,
with raised white tales they're flashing.
