Re: Who here likes poetry ?
Actually i like the unknown (poets i know personally) poets more than the famous ones. Makes the poems a little more meaningful ...although i do like Whitman a lot and Shakesphere and Hugo wrote poetry to.

Also many dont consider this ...But Nostradomus wrote all his future predictions in poetry style.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all convictions, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.



Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Re: Who here likes poetry ?
When you ask "likes poetry," do you mean, "Who likes to write poetry" or "Who likes to read poetry"?

A lot more people write poetry than read it.

And song lyrics are seldom poetry. I can´t think of more than one or two in my entire life that could be called poetry. For one thing, most song lyrics use rhyme, and very simple rhymes, so I would not call them poetry.

For another thing, lyrics are written for money. Poets write for the sake of their souls.

When love conquered the world

Love of the ages shattered the eternal night
A shock wave through evil
fear gripped the darkness in every heart
the conscience of the people....
It spread like a needed disease
sickening the cruel
fire burned a forest of lies in deceitful minds
the brutal heavy hand of man was crushed
in an instant
when love conquered the world
for the first time tears flooded a battlefield
instead of the blood of dying pawns
the last wave opened the flood gates of guilt
The truth of love claimed victory on Earth

Depends on how you look at it 9941 ...some people have different definitions of poetry ....If a song moves you there is poetry to it. In my humble opinion : ) ....moves the spirit that is. poetry can do that.

Ebony one are you fitful
He nods his obeisance
Do you know they throng
knowing
To assured carnage
abruptly turning
The cunning raven
desperate to flee
Sighs anew
running toward the Bay
The Invaders swarm
diamonds clasped to chest
The open plains
leaping over the edge
Destroying in legions
free-breathing at last
Mind I discover
hitting the fourth step
Fertile fields
hard!
Fluid and undulant
a fearful rhythm now
Sustaining their spines
every seventh step
Emerald stalks
reciting The Táin
Bewitching florescence
five centuries pre-Christ
Bed fields of battle
all
Flailing victorious
the
Hordes to dust
way
Cattle cries the Badb
home
The raven feasts
to
Among carcasses of armies

Last Night the Rain Spoke to Me

Last night
the rain
spoke to me
slowly, saying,
what joy
to come falling
out of the brisk cloud,
to be happy again
in a new way
on the earth!
That’s what it said
as it dropped,
smelling of iron,
and vanished
like a dream of the ocean
into the branches
and the grass below.
Then it was over.
The sky cleared.
I was standing
under a tree.
The tree was a tree
with happy leaves,
and I was myself,
and there were stars in the sky
that were also themselves
at the moment
at which moment
my right hand
was holding my left hand
which was holding the tree
which was filled with stars
and the soft rain –
imagine! imagine!
the long and wondrous journeys
still to be ours.

Most Ancient Hunger Rising

An ancient hunger for love, been suppressed for so long
Just love...nothing but love...it´s rising from the core
breaking through miles of hardened surface
years of taking life for granted
and they cannot feel the rising desperate power
the hungry beast of love rising
Their feelings for such things desensitized
a machine created by false logic and numbers
turned them cold...cold to the reasons why
shaky nervous world now...tears and pain dismissed
a march with terrible song of progress
into a mouth of a flaming volcano
the tender nurturing steadying hand of love...almost gone
only a ghost of its former self
just an echo of its potential remains
its healing powers for all this, lost on progressive minds
that aren´t really progressive
and empty shells where souls once lived
and love once ruled
when children reached for mother in purer days

How To Kill


How to Kill

Under the parabola of a ball,
a child turning into a man,
I looked into the air too long.
The ball fell in my hand, it sang
in the closed fist: Open Open
Behold a gift designed to kill.

Now in my dial of glass appears
the soldier who is going to die.
He smiles, and moves about in ways
his mother knows, habits of his.
The wires touch his face: I cry
NOW. Death, like a familiar, hears


And look, has made a man of dust
of a man of flesh. This sorcery
I do. Being damned, I am amused
to see the centre of love diffused
and the wave of love travel into vacancy.
How easy it is to make a ghost.


The weightless mosquito touches
her tiny shadow on the stone,
and with how like, how infinite
a lightness, man and shadow meet.
They fuse. A shadow is a man
when the mosquito death approaches

Interesting 368 ...good stuff ....good stuff from everyone.

Ruled By Zero

Ideology....nothing but pure thoughts
Garnered by the soul and all that it means
See how nothing controls everything
You go into the invisible world....
Of what you see and cannot
You always look for the soul...the center
It is always the unknown which pulls us forward
Questions create the future
Answers keep the grounds under our feet
Curiosity and imagination....
They ensure humanity...they ensure eternity
I Love....these words speak of the highest nothing
No invisible is like that feeling...The world
This tangible place is marked by nothing
History is saturated with love and hate
The ghost of those passions still ignite our world
The fire of those passions marks us all
It is so extraordinary to contemplate that
It gives me free reign into a future world
It allows me to see back and give advice

Re: Who here likes poetry ?
Cairo Jag


Shall I get drunk or cut myself a piece of cake,
a pasty Syrian with a few words of English
or the Turk who says she is a princess--she dances
apparently by levitation? Or Marcelle, Parisienne
always preoccupied with her dull dead lover:
she has all the photographs and his letters
tied in a bundle and stamped Decede in mauve ink.
All this takes place in a stink of jasmin.

But there are the streets dedicated to sleep
stenches and the sour smells, the sour cries
do not disturb their application to slumber
all day, scattered on the pavement like rags
afflicted with fatalism and hashish. The women
offering their children brown-paper breasts
dry and twisted, elongated like the skull,
Holbein´s signature. But his stained white town
is something in accordance with mundane conventions-
Marcelle drops her Gallic airs and tragedy
suddenly shrieks in Arabic about the fare
with the cabman, links herself so
with the somnambulists and legless beggars:
it is all one, all as you have heard.

But by a day´s travelling you reach a new world
the vegetation is of iron
dead tanks, gun barrels split like celery
the metal brambles have no flowers or berries
and there are all sorts of manure, you can imagine
the dead themselves, their boots, clothes and possessions
clinging to the ground, a man with no head
has a packet of chocolate and a souvenir of Tripoli.

The Fish

The first fish
I ever caught
would not lie down
quiet in the pail
but flailed and sucked
at the burning
amazement of the air
and died
in the slow pouring off
of rainbows. Later
I opened his body and separated
the flesh from the bones
and ate him. Now the sea
is in me: I am the fish, the fish
glitters in me; we are
risen, tangled together, certain to fall
back to the sea. Out of pain,
and pain, and more pain
we feed this feverish plot, we are nourished
by the mystery.

wow great stuff ...i so do love poetry ...it holds my attention while reading so well. And it fills the soul so fast to. Unique reading.

Change Will Come As Never Before

Change is coming...one way or the other
The greatest change in human history is coming
Mountains explode, grounds open,
diseases spread, wars and rumors of wars grow
Most of all masses are stopped in their work
Because the real job of humanity must be seen
The heavy hand becomes all too visible
However change can come another way
It can come as a gentle touch
Words to the heart of another from the poet in all
Simple and profound words to save humanity
So we may live by our humanity
The greater virtues that make us rise in spirit
With the spirit we must see within and without. . .
Love, compassion, understanding,
Bravery is acknowledgement of the soul
All this from within and without
We live as one in the magik sphere called Earth
There is no escape from virtues learned here

Re: Who here likes poetry ?
Ok one more poem from me ...but this one for a particular reason ...this is for GLP....

The doom sayer

How to see the doom sayer
one who speaks of the end of civilization
for many a troubling issue indeed
In all irony i have spoken of doom more than most
more than anyone i know
I have studied the reasons why
i know the causes of doom
i have listened to a majority ignore important issues
i have seen them ignore minorities weak and strong
many believed indifference would never be punished
still i worried about the other dooms sayers
would they know when to speak it
did they know the pain behind the words of doom
or was it just the cold science of data and facts
did they weep for knowing the solution to doom
were they brave enough to speak it
about the love, gentleness, wisdom that was needed
when the end comes will they not say...
´i told you so"
quiet pitty will be all that can be given

Within the Myriad Halls of Heaven, time space
and dimension are superceded and transcended.
Bathed in bluest sapphireen effulgence; all affirmaties thus healed and mended. Soaring
thru columns of shimmering aurora hued,
cumuliform clouds, amid legions of Cherubim,
Seraphim, and Auphanim, arrayed in gold
glinted crowds. At the right hand of the
´Father´, is enthroned the ´Lamb of Glory´
His coutenance as burnished brass, fiery
majestic and clarion in gaze and voice.
Hair like unto wool, upon a throne of
translucent crystaline gold. He bids us;
come away! as we soar alae, eagles on high
serenely, gloriously, we mount to the sky.
Transfigured unto pillars of onyx and
alabaster, in YaoHuVeHshua´s Millennial
Temple, arising forth with angelic orisons
sung out from the Sides of the North !

The New Jerusalem

Behold !!! The New Heaven, and The New Earth ! : Melchizedek Planet 10 - X !

King of Righteousness : Molkhiul YaoHuVeHshua Emmanuel Melchizedek hol - Mehushkhay !

Lord of virtue, Soveriegn of worth !

The smouldering giant orb, of burnt umber hue, source of heavenly fire, sans oceans and seas,

yet teeming with the abundant waters of the river of life.

Crowned with the diadem of the New Jerusalem, bejewelled and resplendent, as befits the

Monarch´s Bride And Wife.

The great orb itself ; originating no spark of effulgent radiant light, emits the warm, comforting, healing, purifying fire of the shimmering cumuliform Shekinah, the very presence of YaoHuVeH

ul - Avah ; smouldering, blazing up, illuminating, leaving no shadows, darkness or night.

No Temple/Church of inert, lifeless matter is to be found therein. instead; those who intrinsically

personify and project absolute love and life, remade in the image of YaoHuVeHshua Himself,

Ancient of Days, One in being with Avah and Ruckha, Logos and Rhema, Urim and Thumim,

the everlasting hope of men.

Adorned and Completed with living stones, the human overcomers, in YaoHuVeHshua, the

resurrecting, regenerating, substance of our faith.

The master carpenter, Who installs us as pillars and columns, glorified in His identity, purpose

and place.

YaoHuVeHshua´s reward is with Him, and in Him ; intimately, lovingly, and tenderly, in His

protective, covering embrace.

Dispelling all pain, suffering, sorrow and death, as we progress from glory to glory everlasting,

in beholding Him as He really is, bathed in the inefable glory of His Face !

The veritable heart and soul of this; the City of the Living God, is it´s light, it´s fire, it´s warmth

and it´s love.

You verily can go home again, upon receipt of your eternal home, as the one from above.

This fiery chariot of sienna and umber, illumined by the King of Righteousness, driving it onward, propelled by mighty steeds, races inexorably into the inner solar system.

Anon, drawing nigh, to the old defiled Earth He Comes, seeming to those who see, as a

second Son, a majestically glorious conveyance, suitable for the King !

He has come knocking upon the door of our people´s heart,

He bids His Fair One to arise and come away with Him, riding across the heavens in

the Chariot of the King.

He awaits our response in the fragrant, dew laden gardens of our souls, to meet

Him there in that hidden place, never more to part !!!
