1st ~ Rebel Jo

We should see the spirits singing
Tis the child-heart draws them,ringing
Would ye not break out in weeping?

 

 

 

 

2nd ~ S7716


We see
A holy child of greatness
He hears
Music ringing, silent singing
Softly, softly
He muses deep
Now breath


 

 

3rd ~ Dycrain

DARE YE DREAM

Yestermorn dreamers
art weary.

Visions:
Amaranths withered

Thou wert sleepeth
in shadows
of cloistral peace.

Athereal
Heaven-flowers
Glory doth bloom.

1st ~ Dycrain

 

Yvonne Marie Crain Profile at Soul Asylum Poetry

Passing,

sun setting.

Thy quiver

'til chilled.

Tippet,

gossamer of immortality,

Kindly,

eternity stopped

for thee.

Without haste.

DEATH PAUSED.



 

 

2nd ~ Mizclaws

 



Fields of gossamer

Scarcely visible

Centuries in the ground

Death stopped for me

Immortality for more than a day

 


3rd ~ Brokenwing



The carriage stopped-
Immortality
paused before us,
and passed us
slowly away.


Week of August 12, 2007

 


1st ~ Mizclaws



Essences of Blossom

Myself desired

Upon a winter's sleep

Ten thousand dream's of you

Melted into the earth

 



2nd ~ Rebel Jo



Apple Dream
I am drowsing off.
But I am done with apple picking now.
Magnified apples appear and disappear.
The scent of apples that struck the earth.

Week of August 26, 2007


1st ~ Cedrick



Garden Flowers
for Joree -- Found Poem 8/26

I went with joy
to the garden green.
Flowers so sweet
I had never seen.

 



2nd ~ Red11



Tombstone of flowers
~
Blackened by briars
~
Sweetened by desires
~
Joys of love

 



3rd ~ crj147



Love Garden chapel

Priests used flowers over door

Sweet flowers binding their love

The gates were turn’d to tomb-stones

2nd ~ Lucky90250



With our world's freedom fading,
centuries of splendour obliterates...

~~~**~~~

And the beauty of mankind
falls into a wintry heap...

glorious beauty
seeds to wasted rose petals
spring embraced beyond

1st ~ Cedrick



His Eyes
Found Sedoka Poem 9/16/07

If I had to guess
his probing eyes told me that
with death comes little comfort.

Between pain and grief
his piercing eyes renew light
giving love that could not die.

 



2nd ~ Dycrain

Yvonne Marie Crain Profile at Soul Asylum Poetry

DESPAIR"

Through centuries

Piercing grief of death

~~*~~

Enlightened balm

Art

Thy Cross and Kind Smile



3rd ~ Red11



Death enlightened
By mine despair
Grieve not
Mine light has gone
Weigh mine pain
Banish thy ache

Week of September 23, 2007


1st ~ S7716



Indefinitely, memorizing
Remembering, willingly
Understanding is slow
You guide
I must go
Essential to ascending to the light
To Him.......

 


2nd ~ Calamity

His Signs

Without understanding,
light from ones lamplight
would not be seen.

 

 

 

3rd ~ Rebel Jo


A cabin near
seen by twilight
windows with lamplight
wood smoke, signs of someone
looking through
we ascend, storm ahead
