Welcome to my page!

I am a man of many interests - TOO many, I think, lol - and because of that I never gave writing the attention I should have when I was young. I started writing poetry in December of 2016, and joined Poetry Soup at the same time. I am currently working on an R&B/Soul album for a major label, so, as has usually been the case, poetry does not get the time I'd like to give it, (though I plan to change that in the future, and write a book-or-two, a sci-fi novel and an autobiography) ...

I like to incorporate classic styles and phrasing into a modern frame when I write poetry, and try to cover a wide range of genres, but I enjoy the darkly sensual the most, despite its limited audience. I hope you'll give my rather unusual style a chance, read a piece-or-two, and leave a comment, if you'd be so kind. I also hope you'll visit my music web site as well, (at the following address under my moniker "Bahku") - mostly (very) old recordings there, but also a snippet of the first single coming, and more new stuff soon!

Thanks for stopping by my page - blessings!

TOO BRIEF, THE FLAME


There lies my heart,
          Quite ragged, torn -
               My father passed
     This brumal morn ...

How ruthless came
          This face of death,
               Warm on my cheek,
     His last, soft breath ...

Yet blessed, was I,
          Thru grand design,
               To walk him home,
     His hand ... in mine ...

Oh treasure, sweet,
          The folks you love -
               Too brief the flame,
     Burns life, thereof.





I love you, Dad ... I'll never know a better man, in every sense of the word.

 

( Richard T. Barden - September 18, 1926 - October 27, 2019 )

Saddened to read of your loss, Greg- you gave your father much needed care and attention during the time he was fading away, and that says so much about your love and kindness - as a son,as a fellow human being. Take care of yourself, ok? The days ahead might be hard to bear, remember your inner strength and wisdom will keep you going. (((Hugs))) to you and family - with warmest regards, and you are in my prayers....Aqua.

Such a heartfelt poem. My condolences dear friend. There are no words to lift your from your grief. I pray in time you find peace again and comfort with the thought, how lucky you were, not everyone is blessed with two loving and nurturing parents. ...and remember, "there is a season for all things and each day is but a season"

Oh, thank you so much, Wendy, that is very sweet of you, and I so appreciate the heartfelt sympathy ... I was the only one with him the night he died, holding his hand thru the wee hours, and my mom came through the door (of his hospice room) just as he let out his final breath. It was not a pleasant night, but I cherish it nonetheless, and I'm glad she didn't see the process. Blessings, my friend. <3

Thanks so much, SOS - my dad was a great provider, but he and I were never friends - he wanted nothing to do with me as a child, and I tried and tried for closeness throughout life. He came to reconcile with me a couple of years ago, and eventually could even say "I love you" whenever we talked, and I am so thankful ... but still, eons between us. There is always hope while we're still breathing. Blessings, Friend. <3
