Heads On Desks!

By no means am I demeaning the legitimate reasons for much of the hostility in the air these days; I mean no disrespect to anyone…just trying to lighten things up briefly🙂

~~♥~~

Let’s bring on some ‘chill’

Yes, set aside heat of rage

Clasp peace, unity

Can’t be so impossible

Children (carkers*) learn it soon:

“Put your heads down on your desks!”

*The Word of the Day Challenge is Carker.

No Fictitious Season

Life’s current season

‘Tis not by least fictitious

Though surreal it seems

Who would write these dour chapters

As if romantic drama

~

Yes, we will come through

With grit, faith, some survive all

But we need to weep

Not suppress tears, freely flood

Wash out stress-filled fears, anguish

~

The Lord Himself wept

Old saints’ prayers pool ‘neath their feet

Desperate, fervent pleas

Rescue, deliv’rance, relief

Grateful praise sung at morning

Storm’s Comin’, Poet-Love

I feel it, and hear

Psithurism* in my head

Mind’s green willow trees

Gentle sweeping rustle…leaves

Are falling poetry words

~

They make rich carpet

Where heart’s feet may walk a path

Hands collect phrases

Which breeze swirled this way n’ that

For mystery story weaving

~

Basket of lyrics

Sorrowful, joyous psalms too

Muse clings to branches

Lest romance be blown adrift

Calls, “storm’s comin’, Poet-Love”

*Psithurism (noun): sound of wind in trees and rustling of leaves

Winter of Discontent

Sad melodrama

Plays to disappointed land

Winter sans ‘jolly’

As frost patterns windowpanes

Peace, unity are lagging

~

Healing will require

Heaven’s army, top-grade troops

Rage, doubt, fear mooch faith

Once generous, unshaken

Sharp precipice imagined

~

Junk-mail media

Spews scary information

Educates with slants

Winter’s breath-held discontent

Worthy of literature

~

Disconsolate hearts

Peer through freezing rains’ dim veil

Encroaching snow clouds

Hem in mind’s isolation…

Soul dreams purple hyacinths

Illusions Betray

Where is the brother

Idolized in younger years

Imagined hero

Was no exception it seems

To illusion which betrays
