Roses and Lilacs
minstrel, desire, longing, love, nature, romance, rose, roses
by Michael R. Burch
The rose of love's bright promise

and shed her dress;
she shivers?nude, forlorn.

The Wandering Minstrel

When poetry and lyrics written in rhyme,
Were commonplace. A travelling band
Of troubadours would wander the land,
Writing and singing, to bestow delights
On ladies, peasants, and errant knights.

On a Los Angeles street - play it brother, ladle it on black delirium
A wind blows – from trumpets, oboes, and saxophones

Emptiness crowded my lonely room,
The sound of silence was deafening,
I was blinded by the rays of gloom,
(Just a dress rehearsal for the tomb)...

Not seeing the stream,...

Invitations to the Gala
issued by a grave impala
were highly sought out missives
by the bold and the submissive
Those omitted uttered curses
shook angry fists or heavy purses
Had they but known that
the price of admission
minstrel, community, computer, cousin, dark, daughter, emotions,
Earth crosses her heart at midnight
Shaking loose dust upon battered edge
Scorn mocks the piercing night as daylight
Moves swiftly with open jaws waiting for a fight.

This is king David's hallelujah
words for Leonard Cohen's beautiful melody hallelujah
Have you ever heard the song
That rang above the battle’s throng
Or has no minstrel ever played it to you

He was a cowboy problem child
rescued by a mendicant sage brush sorcerer

thanks to whiskey tainted...
Cerulean Odyssey One, 17-20
minstrel, allegory, inspirational, life, philosophy, voice, voice,
the narrow path took a sudden turn
