That of Mine

Hamzat Adams

Days seems dark
While sky song sing so bright
That of mine shall never lack
Thee in heart at light
We strive without knife
With all our pens on table
Inks which links us to life
For Thou love is incomparable
Let my voice be heard
Within you my power lies
Among those of many head
In source of heaven eyes
Unfading you shall be
Even when world forsake me

Adding photos

I was delighted to have the news that photos could now be uploaded. Having thought I would not renew my premium membership I immediately decided to do so.
Alas! Alas! I see that there is only a facility to upload photos when I submit a new poem. Many of my poems have associated photos. Webmaster, please, please make it possible to add photos to poems already submitted.

Thanks in anticipation and a happy Easter.

Lisle.

It's one of my first poems I'm not good at writing also. I just want to try as many things as possible and see how it'll go.




The silence..

It‘s dark..Silent
I close my eyes..Silence
I hear him again

I‘m feeling his ominous
Yet such warm pressence
He speaks to me..
And now he‘s silent..
I can‘t hear anything...Silence.

I open my eyes..Red
Red everywhere..
I close my eyes..Silence..

I can hear him with his faint voice
He speaks to me, but I can‘t hear him
Luminous light starts shining..

Silence..Silence again.
I don‘t feel him anymore.
I open my eyes..Silence..

Bob, I really liked the poem. Really down to earth. Thank you.


no more has our friend of note
time for us heathen folks
his mind got set for better things
while we wallow in our words


for nothing makes for better smiles
than those efforts people make
to help their fellow bumpkins
carve out much better phrases

Jack’s gone to a higher place
his time spent here not wasted
seems we, of simple mind set
will miss his practiced phrases


no more has our friend of note
time for us heathen folks
his mind got set for better things
while we wallow in our words


for nothing makes for better smiles
than those efforts people make
to help their fellow bumpkins
carve out much better phrases

The silence that we hear
Is the worst curse of them all
It’s forgiveness never given
It’s a warning not to fall
If you knew not to wait
Would you say goodbye
Would you say “I love you”
Or “I’m sorry that I lied”
That silence that you hear
Ringing in your ear
Is a word left unspoken
That still rings loud and clear

Apologies for the delay. Thank you for all your fine remarks. It's been noted. The first verse is about a womans cycle and the fertilization of an embryo as you stated. Thank you for your response.
