Nature Interred
Wint'ry coats mingle
With dirty roads, revealing
Mankind's civil sin....

Last Call
Jo King loved frothy tankards of beer
Which she drank every day of the year
Interred in a keg
She swallowed each dreg
So her tombstone reads, "Wish you were here!"...

Killing The Goose
Tearing at the roots
of what life is about,
science strips us bare

To wilt in description,
formulaic interred
—ivy walls that snare

The present ,so easily we forget
Our yesterday's,interred,remembered
'neath leaves of regret;
Often exhumed,wahed bright
with tears of delight;
So clearly,our days past,we see

For tomorrow,....may not be

Interred
Literal is not,

the fake climb is aunt,

and a stake in the attrition not an alimony as you can see clearly in me...I do not assuage an empire-

I follow in the most economical exigencies,

as one is up, another is down my friend....

Mt. Olivet Cemetery: Nashville

The monstrous spires uprise
But never touch the skies,
Vain, earth-foundationed monuments
To Life’s impermanence.

Expensive markers war with Time
Where lichen mosses climb
And cover up each hand-carved word
That tells of those interred.

Prize or Surprise
I spied inside walls to much surprise.
Sometimes with smiles, then tears, into rise.
Sometimes, some things, unheard,
Are better un-interred,
Truly this will never provide prize.

Premium Member Their Emotions He Stirred
Caesar preferred to be quietly interred

  But to Antony his friend he deferred --
 
With Rome's citizenry Antony conferred

  Spurred them on with the passion of his words

Masterfully, did he their emotions stir --

  They'd hunt down and kill the conspirators, sure

LAUGHTER
LAUGHTER

Laughter
Is just one.

Many seeds
Were interred
To grow a
Laughing tree.

Different echoes
It formed from
Whistling wind.

You who plucked laughter
From a laughing tree house
In  green eyes to their white teeth
You've scattered the cherries
In an insouciant wind.

Pictures interred

deep into gray matter 

shatters delusion

except from time

no moorings holding them in place

to past or future

Stones

Granite blocks of stone Stand vigil all alone Lean as if in prayer Forever Where seldom footsteps tread Here among the dead Memories interred Forgotten Faithful through the years Where long bereft of tears Remnants of a past Lay silent A lifetime etched in stone Name and date alone In loving memory of Whomever

Covid-19
China reaches out for power
Over land and across the seas
Raging fevers crush the flowers
Of fragile weak humanity
Nothing known can quell the wake
As ripples drown the soul
Visions of this tragic fate
Interred as church bells toll
Rest for those no longer living
Under a blanket of broken sod
Sins without forgiving.. left to the will of God...

NEW YEARS MIRROR
In the empty house 
of snow,
though, interred a blade of grass
when I was searching one
midnight flame

in frozen night, on
parting lips of darkness.
The art of delusion
churns the sea for an untitled
arsenic,of a blue throat.

I am dynasty and I am 
the king of million whites.
Fatherless sins
in rusted boots
were having a last laugh.

Sealed in Unhappiness
Once long ago 
You made the sun shine
Now you cast
A septic sulphuric shadow
You came and stole
My heart and my happiness
And interred them
In cold grey granite stone 
Days once so brief
Now linger, last too long
As we must sit
Separate in the same room
And listen to
The silence of hurtful hate

I knew an old woman from Greece Whose whinging words would seldom cease She’d constantly whine When drunk on red wine Her husband’s in dire need of peace! How much cash does a Grecian earn - such questions I tried hard to spurn Her husband went mad and did something bad - she’s interred in a Grecian urn! 8/20/19

Raison d'Etre
Why undertake to write another verse,
When Undertaker Time and his black hearse
Will bear your poems to their final resting place
Interred without a stone, in some small weed-thick space?

Because—regardless of the tolling knell,
As long as there are whispered tales to tell
Brave poetry can help deter brute Time
A moment more until he tolls his final chime.

Chance did not cause this bird to land
so boldly in this holy place. 
No, he was led there by God’s hand,
a well planned picture of true grace
for those interred in this small space.

Even most casual passerby
will slow his pace and feel a thrill
or wipe a tear from out his eye,
amazed by noble bird so still,
intent on mission to fulfill.

Epitaph for The Dysfunctional --- Life of John Doe
Here lie the Limericks of John Doe, duly interred
For the poet wrote "The dysfunctional $@& life.." and erred
Using innuendo
Totally intendo
Behold!  Promptly the Admin's righteous wrath was incurred!

The Limericks I agree were crude
Not at all meant  for the prude
The title had this warning
But by the very next morning
The Admin had them promptly removed!

THE WIND AND THE WAVE
A slice of sea whisked its way up as wave
Spinning  sun's refulgence whithin its  whirl
The trouncing wind lashed it with ruinous rave
To toss and tear on  shores its lustrous swirl
Silhouettes interred in silent sand grave
Reeked of ruddy remnants of comber  brave

Mango Metaphor
Mango was sweet and sour,
The juice was plenty,
And began to pour,
Flesh was fleshy,
And also very meshy,
Consumed nothing remained,
Hard seed was forlorn with juice drained,
Skin was vestigial,
Thrown in a waste fall,
Life is like that sweet and sour,
With lot of juice,
Soon it is consumed,
Hard seed is called the dead,
deeply interred,
and it lived was presumed.

Voice on My Shoulder
Dogma deemed absurd, I fought scruple’s bird, 
its voice I still heard, but conscience was blurred.  
A peer-pressure nerd, the threat was the herd;
their counsel preferred, my standards deferred.
Accident incurred;  two bodies interred.
My mind I re-gird with thoughts from God’s Word.

Gossip 2 Written: by Miracle Man 7/14/2017 Hardly anything unseen can remain hidden for long. Ravenous appetites for gossip always seek to prolong, We can never be unchained from things in our past, To others, in thought, were coupled hard and fast. Though superficially interred we think them forgotten, But Satan comes with a spade to unearth the rotten;
