Epiphany be my daughter

Silence be my strength

Violence we shall slaughter

Weakness sleeps at length


Poetry to be my lover

Balance rings my bells

Endurance lay my cover

A talent pleasure sells


My world be my cradle

It’s color is my breath

It’s infancy my ladle

I cleave to it till death


Epiphany my daughter

Don’t shed a single tear

For coldness must grow hotter

As oldness brings us near

  1. nice poe reminds me of one i did called my muse i started writing poetry years ago still have them printed and in protective plastic even after all the times ive been homless. im glad i still have them

    • All I ever think of is to comfort you! Still, I am lost in your sorrow at times, trying desperately to feel as you feel, sense what you sense, and not step on your toes. Is it this late in the day already? When you want to speak with people, time just flies!

      Do you notice that when you leave the confines of your own mind and grapple your way through the darkness, you wake up in a world refreshed: as if you’ve just been freed from school and been out for recess?

    • Crying is good! It releases a lot of tension, expanding our days on earth. I did the very same thing writing it. You see, Yo Ho’s (Jehovah’s Witnesses) took my daughter and two sons away from me, because of a lie my wife perpetrated, and they grew to believe it. I haven’t seen my children in over 30 years now. And still they hold them tightly locked away from me… How’s that for no forgiveness, for something I didn’t do?

      • Spartacus, I find your story really inspiring. Though I am not at the same age as yours, I can relate to how you feel. 😦 That’s why I find this poem full of emotions.

  2. Howdy I am so delighted I found your site, I really found you by accident, while I was browsing on Bing for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a tremendous post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don¡¯t have time to read it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the excellent b.

    • That’s OK… Everybody finds me by accident… You might say I’m an accident waiting to happen! Now Bing is picking me up? At least I’m now getting a clear indication that my poetry is part of the key to greater success! I would not necessarily discern that without these great responses! Thank you for your faith in my ability! I so look forward to hearing from you again! 2YiKv7D.Q4b8@gmail.com

    • Epiphany is my best poem to date! I try to provide a wide variety so there’s something here for everyone. I have a passionate interest in people, and wouldn’t leave them for the world! Wait a minute… That IS ‘the people’. Allow me to elaborate. With all the pain and suffering, confusion and ever quickening pace so many of us struggle with, I try to provide a little something to lift up their hearts, offer them hope, topped off with a dash of humor. If I should succeed in helping but one individual forget their problems for even just a few brief moments, I have then accomplished igniting a healing process far and above a pay check!

    • I’m particularly fond of this blog entry. I’m working on letting my feelings flow through in my work, and so far, poetry seems to the best vehicle for me. I’ve been a song writer long before I ever came here, so I guess that’s why it works that way for me. My task, is to get it to flow into other subject matter because the cardinal rule of blogging is: ‘If you aren’t passionate about what you write, no one will be passionate about reading it.’
