Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
The world is falling,
Falling into madness.

People hurt and kill each other
Just because they want to know
How that's like.

What is a poet's muse
But that which is one's own experience
In the world and wanderings?

What is there a man
To wonder
Or see?

When there is darkness
The lost say there is light.
And when the light is turned on
Like a bright beaming ray,
These flee into the shadows
Because it burns them.

Such are these days.
Such has the mind
Gravitated,
And descended,
Into madness.

Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
I hear the rain sing softly to the Earth
The melody as soothing as your hands on me

Even my nights shine, thinking of you...the things we do.

Dreaming my dreams ~ hopes and fears entangled in ecstasy!
I'm dreaming of you
The things we'll do.

Your Spirit cries to me...
Or ~ mine, to you?

Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
From the Immortal Emily Dickinson:

My life closed twice before its close --
It yet remains to see
If Immortality unveil
A third Event to me

So huge, so hopeless to conceive --
As those that twice befell.
Parting is all we know of Heaven
And all we need of Hell.


(From memory, her strange punctuation and capitalization might not be exactly as I've reproduced it here.)

And:

After great pain, a formal feeling comes --
The Nerves sit ceremonious, like Tombs --
The stiff Heart questions was it He, that bore,
And Yesterday, or Centuries before?

The Feet, mechanical, go round --
Of Ground, or Air, or Ought --
A Wooden way
Regardless grown,
A Quartz contentment, like a stone --

This is the Hour of Lead --
Remembered, if outlived,
As Freezing persons, recollect the Snow --
First -- Chill -- then Stupor -- then the letting go --

Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
And from the 19th century's other strange, Immortal Emily (Bronte, that is):

No coward soul is mine,
No trembler in the world's storm-troubled sphere:
I see Heaven's glories shine,
And faith shines equal, arming me from fear.

O God within my breast,
Almighty, ever-present Deity!
Life--that in me has rest,
As I--undying Life--have power in thee!

Vain are the thousand creeds
That move men's hearts: unutterably vain;
Worthless as withered weeds,
Or idlest froth amid the boundless main,

To waken doubt in one
Holding so fast by thine infinity;
So surely anchored on
The stedfast rock of immortality.

With wide-embracing love
Thy spirit animates eternal years,
Pervades and broods above,
Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates, and rears.

Though earth and man were gone,
And suns and universes ceased to be,
And Thou were left alone,
Every existence would exist in Thee.

There is not room for Death,
Nor atom that his might could render void:
Thou--THOU art Being and Breath,
And what THOU art may never be destroyed.

Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
Business as usual? Business as usual? Business as usual?

It is much too unusual for Business as usual.

There is a seed growing. Some might think it is a germ.

That comes from fear.

It is a seed.

With a network of roots underneath the surface and penetrating everything.

It is the truth.

And it is much to Extraordinary for Business as usual.

As a wise man once said, "Hold but let go"

Because every myth known to man is playing itself out.

Alongside anything any human ever imagined.

All the good and all the bad. Is happening.

Coalescing into one big thing.

Until final realization.

The culmination of everything that ever happened and was ever imagined.

See you there.

LOVE Emily!!
heart

IMO, she was a feminine female to the Nth degree....and so, SO accurate. (I judge her works AS a woman..."total disclosure!")

I have spent a happy/thundering hour looking at a book of old poetry I wrote. A DIARY, basically.

THANK YOU, OP.

THANK YOU.

Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
Yes I do.

Baudelaire is my favorite.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Re: does anyone still enjoy poetry?
I Am the Only Being Whose Doom

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
This changeful life has slipped away
As friendless after eighteen years
As lone as on my natal day

There have been times I cannot hide
There have been times when this was drear
When my sad soul forgot its pride
And longed for one to love me here

But those were in the early glow
Of feelings since subdued by care
And they have died so long ago
I hardly now believe they were

First melted off the hope of youth
Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew
And then experience told me truth
In mortal bosoms never grew

'Twas grief enough to think mankind
All hollow servile insincere -
But worse to trust to my own mind
And find the same corruption there


Emily Jane Brontë
