Ripple - poem

You sense the utter peace in the weariness, of
subtle outward falling lines
over the bellies of silken-shored stones,

the sensation such when both ears are water plugged,
as the pulse of the heart is heavy,
the heart of Gaia drums deep,
even to the core of stones on barren shores...

distant stridulation from the cicada -
rye funneling up crab grasses,
resounding with chime and tap,
below the snap roll of aimless drones...

the wasp is a tumbleweed,
frail as skin of autumn leaves,
a tincture to the winds siphoning it through
to needle-thread glints of ochre and pear spooling,
traces of forgiving scent...

Peace and Love always.

At 36...

I've realized, without being a bragger and without gloat that I am here to write for the revolution.

Then learn to write.

I'm not going to indulge you forever. Either of you.

He's the man.

I don't need your indulgence

or approval. I write for myself firstly. In release, so others are.

Just a little friendly advice

No need to bite.

He's the man.

Learn to write? Friendly?

The true writer writes for the heart, not necessarily yours.

dead on Michael....

I see a potential other don't. I see changes made by my words, other's do not. I hope. Others do not. I want to connect. Others don't.

Ear for Poetry

Most people could rhyme decently, and lots of folks can paint beautiful pictures with words, but you, Pen, have a gift sorely lacking in poetry these days: an ear for language. Poetry should sound so good to the ear that one would listen to it ad infinitum even without knowing what the words mean. If you ever stop writing poetry I'm gonna break your face.

Maybe there should be a DP

poetry thread where we can read, vote and compare DP originals.

It was created long ago...

peace, my friend.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

I agree....

how to create?

Thanks LL

like I said, at least one other person was touched, which is the primary point of poetry.

Correct

Down-voting brigade did some damage here:

thanks LL...

for the help in promoting this at all.

You got downvoted for bumping me on twitter...sad.

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

There is a small down-voting anti-LL brigade here

Just a few folks.

think how much better...

they could spend their time here. What is the point of a fruitless downvote? Rather pointless.

I laugh at their fruitless efforts

and I actually drink good German beer to their wasted time hehehe
