RE: Aria’s Folder- RHPeat's Poetry Class - Working Towards the Sonne

RE: Aria's Assignments 1 - 10


Poem 1: Write a poem of 16 to 20 lines in 2 parts creating a comparison (2 stanzas). Make use of two different anaphoras. Anaphora: = The repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of successive clauses. Focus on the three parts of a poem when writing the poem.



POEM I - At the Piano
Mirror on the parlor wall
what do you reveal?
A woman at the grand piano
grey hair wrapped in a bun;
shriveled hands
with gentle fingers on the keys,
she plays Schumann's
"Timeless" melody.

Mirror on the parlor wall
what do you reveal?
A girl at the grand piano
with swift young fingers
on the keys, her light
brown hair tied in blue ribbons,
she plays Schumann's
"Timeless" melody.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




Poem 2: Write a poem of 15 to 18 lines using tercets (3 line stanzas). Make use of a refrain within the poem. Realize when you construct the refrain that it will be used within the three parts of the poem: opening, turning point and closure. So be aware that the refrain has to be constructed in a manner that will offer intent within all three literary parts of the poem. Understand also that a refrain doesn't have to be on every stanza or evenly spaced within the poem.

Poem II - Kyrie Eleison (Lord Have Mercy)

Let us live in the light, let us walk the path of peace.
Acceptance of each other is the key.
May we love one another, may love help us see.

May we not live in the dark, may we not each other harm,
forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves;
deep within our hearts, let us never harbor hate.

Kyrie eleison, alleluia, allelu,
Jesus said "love one another, as I have loved you."
Forgive us for we know not what we do.

The creator of the universe, we all speak His name
in one way or the other, in any language, still the same.
Kyrie eleison, alleluia, allelu.

May we walk in your light, may your light
shine on our path, may we know, here and now
"love is all, love is real."

Let love light our way, love help us know
the pain of our brother, in forgiveness perfect peace.
Kyrie elison, alleluia, allelu.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Poem 3: Write a poem of 16 to 24 lines that is a conceit. That means the complete poem will be based one metaphor. The opening should set up the premise for the poem. It could be just the title like: R. Burns poem “my love is like a red red rose.” Where he makes the statement in the title and then goes on to speak about the rose as his love. But the title does not have to state the premise but at least it should be present in the first stanza. Write the poem in quatrains. The closure should relate to both sides of the metaphor in some way without revealing the deeper meaning of the poem. The closure needs to tie the opening and turning point together in some way to form a new concept.


Poem 3 - Invitation to the Masquerade

Please come to a masquerade party.
Wear your mask, my friend, it is key
to hide your identity.
The invitation? Escape of reality.

Welcome to the masquerade.
Please, your passion, put here on display
in words, poetically played...
love or hate, eternally made.

You are the gambler
of dark and light? day and night?
Neither Nero or Caesar,
nor devil or diva.

The prize is in
the hearts you may win.
Mardi-gras has no sin;
welcome, friend, to the inn

of our host.
Favor and hope are most
in the end. Can you cope
as you walk the tight-rope?

Your mask is jeweled beauty,
peacock's plumage, costly;
You may play, of course! It is free!
Only, friend, at the door, once more, lose your identity.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

• Poem 4: Write a poem of 16 to 24 lines using couplets (2 line stanzas). Make use of ambiguity within this poem. Allow for more than one interpretation. Or let the opening and turning in the poem be extremely different within the presentation so they don't appear related to one another in any way at all. Let the poem be equivocal in thought and vision. Stay focused on the three parts of the poem: opening, turning point and closure. So be aware the the ambiguity has to be constructed in a manner that will offer content within the reader; allow for discovery on the readers part. Understand that ambiguity doesn't have to be on every stanza of the poem as long as it is carried throughout the overall presentation.

Poem 4, The Magician


The magician holds a tall black hat
in the spotlight, where he's at.

The crowd acts like he's something real;
the rabbit's scared, she feels the feel.

Clouds cross over a moon-lit sky,
people question... why, why, why?

The stars are bright and spinning round.
Do they ever hit the ground?

Pretty women sing pretty songs;
you can make them your very own.

Songs will come and songs will go;
which will be the one you know?

The candle's lit, the water's hot;
what happens when a bunny's caught?

Die, oh die, you silly bunny.
Quit laughing, hot's not very funny!

Fire steals your breath and then your life,
no need to scream out in the night.

He stands alone, the lights grow dim.
In the dark, it's dark.....again.

Bunnies come and bunnies go.
Does it matter, who's to know?

The curtain drops without a sound
The walls all fall... tumbling down.

Poem 5 - Wisteria

She sat on the steps of morning's front porch,
enthralled by the beauty there in her world.
Sunlight skipped diamonds across clear water
as bees hummed their pursuit of pear blossoms.
Her fingers played in the lavender blue
silk of her nightgown as heart-beats fluttered
like sparrow wings borne high-up on the wind.
A voice on the phone she held to her ear,
spoke words of desire, she needed to hear.
Remembered touch of a hand, once well known,
love recalled, without sense of place or time.
The wisteria spilled over the fence...
a vision of lavender blue night-silk,
momentary, a day-dream, quickly gone.

Poem 6 - Manic Mary


Manic Mary,
quite unwary
how does your poetry come?
A wolf's long tongue, I fell upon
in his lair, like in a movie.

Manic Mary,
quite unwary
how is that you come?
A wolf erotic turns me on
in his lair, like in a movie.

Manic Mary,
quite unwary
what kind of poem is this?
I know not but a sudden bliss
in his lair, like in a movie.

Manic Mary,
quite unwary
this is not expected!
Nor I, nor he, the wolf most free
in his lair, like in a movie.

Assignment # 7 - Pantoum

1. Write a quatrain/ a four-line stanza. Let the lines have either an end-stop or an enjambment on the end of the line. I suggest that line 2 have an enjambment and that line 4 have an end-stop. This will allow each stanza to flow to the last line and then conclude. Also keep in mind that lines 1 & 2 will be the closure at the end of the poem. So if you give a lot of thought to the beginning here, you fill find the ending of the poem easier as well.
2. Take lines 2 & 4 of the first stanza and make them lines 1 and 3 in the next stanza. Then complete the second stanza, by inserting the missing lines that connect 1 & 3 in the lines 2 & 4 positions. Figure on 5-6 stanzas within the poem 20-24 lines or less if you want to. But it is more difficult to write a short pantoum.
3. Repeat the pattern for each stanza always taking lines 2 & 4 and moving them to lines 1 & 3 in the next stanza. So you would be moving lines 2 and 4 of the 2nd stanza to lines 1 & 3 in the third stanza, and so on and so forth. Do this until you reach the last stanza of the pantoum.
4. In the final stanza remember you will be using lines 1 & 3 as lines 2 & 4 in the closure of the poem. You use those two lines that haven't been repeated yet in the closure of the poem. That’s lines 1 and 3 of the first stanza to close the poem. Now There is an option in the closing of the poem; you can make line 3 the 2nd line of the final stanza, and make line 1 the 4th line of the stanza in the last quatrain of poem if you want. So either way is acceptable for the final stanza in the form. This final step brings the poem full circle.
Generally the pantoum isn't very effective for telling a story, but it can be very good for a more emotional presentation of subject matter. You might want to lay out your form first before you start to make it easy for yourself after writing the first stanza. So you know where your repeated lines are falling. This type of repeated line is call repeton. This is what a complete line is called when repeated within a poem.



Poem 7 (Pantoum) -

Wings

I ride my horse across the open fields
into the setting sun.
He carries me, he carries me away
from life where friends and love betray

into the setting sun,
I put my heels into his sides and fly
from life where friends and love betray;
we are not of this world.

I put my heels into his sides and fly,
I breathe, pain's left behind,
we are not of this world;
I care not if the wings are his or mine.

I breathe, pain's left behind,
my heart-beat slows.
I care not if the wings are his or mine
into the sun, into the fire, we go

My heart-beat slows;
he carries me, he carries me away
into the sun, into the fire, we go.
I ride my horse across the open fields.

RE: Working Toward the Sonnet - Aria's Assignment 8

Writing Exercise 8

John Hollander invented a great little song form (sonnet) that is written in syllabic meter. I say "little song" because that is what sonnet means: little or short song. Of course a sonnet implies a lot more and many other things as well. But that is for a later date. Hollander's sonnet is made up of 13 lines of 13 syllables. Try to keep it focused on a central idea, theme of some sort dealing with one of the primary aspects: of life, birth, death, love, first love, lost love, Mother, Father, the seasons, or a season, or even a renewal or something ancient. It's a matter of using some heavy subject matter here in this exercise while keeping the lines/verses to 13 syllables. A Hollander sonnet isn't the difficult to write but to pull it off with a strong turning and a great closure is quite another thing in 13 lines devoted to a very heavy subject that shouldn't be treaded lightly and yet offer a unique insight.


Wildflowers

They say she sings a song of wild-seed and wild-flowers.
Upon the wind, her mournful voice is heard in dark hours.
In a time, not very long ago or far away
her people praised the earth, sun and sky and newborn day.
Upon their land, the strangers with strange ways quickly moved,
put up fences, killing a way of life which was good.
The old chief, her father, her husband and her brothers
rode ponies out to ask they share with one another.
On nights when there is no moon, her grieving's heard afar,
a lonely cry for her brave, dead many moons before.
Her black hair falls upon her shoulders, ebony lace,
of a mantilla that shrouds her sorrow and her face.
She sings of red blood spilled, the wild-seed of wild-flowers.

I Tell Myself

And if the summer comes too soon,
the sun may burn us in the fire.
Perhaps, at last, the ache will stop
if "all is fair in love and war?"
If "God is good" and "time is all"
a lover's wounds need only heal.
These tired cliches fill up my mind,
my heart's filled up with thoughts of you.
How I desire to meet you there
in sea of green and sapphire blue,
to walk once more upon the sand,
recall your face, your touch of hand;
but oh the thought, I fear the loss,
the pain of we must part, again.
"This too shall pass," I tell myself
to know my heart and trust it's truth.
And if the summer ends too soon
I'll wear it golden on my skin.

No Fairy Tale - Assignment # 10
The full blown moon tonight cries out for you.
My tears spilled rain wet down my face but then
you walked away and now the moment's sin
has made us lose our way from love's "I do."

You've left me bruised and battered from your words.
How could you say those to someone you love?
Why did I think you loved me, God above?
I know for broken lives there is no cure.

So this is how the fairy tale must end,
not with a handsome prince; nor even friend.

Poem # 11 - The Wraith


She roams, a mys'try in the night
with shrouded eyes and golden hair,
where all is love and love is light.

She walks, enchanted and so fair,
the moonlit path through forests dark
and hides from view in shadows there.

Her voice is of the meadowlark
at dawn, in early sunlight's ray.
Her tender footstep leaves no mark.

So look not for her, on your way,
she is illusive, like a fawn.
You will not see her, try you may.

She moves like silk across the dawn
in search of one whose love abounds.
She weeps for him to whom she's drawn.

She is a wraith here lost, earth-bound.
No care has she for heaven bright
until her lover she has found;

to hold him once more in her sight,
to hear his voice and see his face,
to know their love was pure and right.

She wills her fingers there to trace
once more her love upon his skin
and heal his heart there with her kiss.

She would with joy, begin again,
her life with him, if only she
could turn back time, to where and when

beliefs had given in to need,
desire took o'er their fond embrace.
Surprised and stunned, she did not speak,
she could not live with her disgrace.

If You Could See Her Now - #13


If you could see her now, you would not know
the woman she's become without you here.
Her trust and tenderness were first to go.

She spiels out bullet words instead of fear
of the unknown, they say she's very brave,
the woman she's become without you here.

She goes to bars, not church, her soul to save
and once she's drunk enough, she wants the thrill
of the unknown, they say she's very brave.

She wants to prove she never loved you, still
her eyes fill up with tears once in awhile,
and once she's drunk enough, she likes the thrill,

a man to hold her close and make her smile.
Though she may dance with him, he doesn't know
her eyes fill up with tears once in awhile.

She drinks tequila straight, no more fine wine.
If you could see her now, you would not know
the woman, how her beauty used to shine.
Her trust and tenderness were first to go.

She Rides a Winged Horse - #14

She rides, as thunder breaks across the sky,

far past the shadowed place where dark meets light.

Fast light'ning in a storm, they seem to fly

through pelting rain and wind, into the night.



Far past the shadowed place where dark meets light;

a vision of a tempest in a cloud.

Through pelting rain and wind, into the night,

the darkness hides her visage like a shroud.



A vision of a tempest in a cloud,

a woman sits upon a swift-winged horse.

The darkness hides her visage like a shroud

and there they tempt the gods in nature’s force.


She rides, as thunder breaks across the sky,

fast light'ning in a storm, they seem to fly.

Peat's Assignment #15 - The Shakespearean Sonnet



A Little Song of Love - #15
Whene'er I think of him, a certain calm
falls over me. The lure of ocean's breeze
I feel and hear so near, words like a psalm
of love in their seductive melodies.

But in the ocean's breeze a storm-cloud brews
as I recall the torment in his kiss.
When in that moment, with no time to choose
he owned my heart, now I would be remiss

to not admit the quand'ry that I feel;
this paradox of love should not be true.
It is against the rules yet, love is real.
He is not mine to love and yet, I do.

Oh, ocean's breeze, please take my little song
reply to him... love knows no right or wrong.

A Lover's Dream - # 16
And if in moonlight soft, I sigh your name
a whispered breath, breathed out upon the air;
a spoken word, a heart-felt wish on ne'er
but starbeams falling through the sky's black rain.
Nothing to win, a kiss nor heart to gain;
a breathless night, a love known true and fair
will not reveal our truth, two lovers there
known only in my dream, our love in vain.

I wake to face the day both fresh and new.
A dream I dreamed awoke me with a smile.
I knew the man, I felt that it was you
who kissed my lips and held me all the while
the night passed quickly, as a night will do
when dreams of lover's fantasies, beguile.

Peat's Poetry Class, Assignment 17 - The Sestina -




Conversations - Overheard in The Sestina Bar - #17
I've heard she comes here every night for fun,
this place in town called the Sestina Bar.
A lot of guys stop by to have a drink
and stay to see if it's their lucky night.
Above the music, you will hear her laugh.
She likes to say she's through with men and love.

And him? Though he looks good he mostly loves
himself. He's here to have a little fun
and tell some dirty jokes to make 'em laugh.
Those are his drinkin' buddies at the bar,
they come here after work most ever' night.
Just say no when he asks to buy your drink.

My friend, I think you've had too much to drink.
You're not in love with him, you're not in love
you're drunk. You can't go home with him tonight,
believe me when I tell you he's no fun.
It's time to go, my friend, let's leave this bar.
I'll drive you home, now really, please don't laugh.

I'm looking for a man who'll make me laugh
and if he's cute, I'll let him buy the drinks.
Come on, let's make our way up to the bar.
He smiled at me; I think that I'm in love.
I know, I said we're only here for fun
but I'd sure like to meet someone tonight.

They say he's here till closing time each night
and no one's ever seen him smile or laugh.
Oh, I don't think he comes here for the fun;
it's pretty clear he's only here to drink.
The rumor is, he lost his one true love,
since then, he's been a fixture at this bar.

There are no strangers in Sestina Bar.
We're all friends, maybe lovers for one night.
Oh sure, we all would love to fall in love,
though some of us are happy just to laugh.
We come here after work to have a drink
and God knows, we all could use some fun.

Life's good in the Sestina Bar tonight.
We're here to laugh and maybe have some fun,
so cheers! Let's have a drink and fall in love.

I make a mental note to tell you this - #18

The ivy's grown across the orchard gate

The peaches ripe are ready to be picked

a cardinal's song was sung by mockingbird

I like my coffee strong in a red mug.


The hummingbirds drink deep in honeysuckle

and from the porch, I saw a cyclist on the road

I noticed one red rose, alone, in bloom

the sun on my bare legs raised a damp sheen.


A friend's child called me Anna by mistake

one shoe lies abandoned by the creek bed

a heron built a nest there by the pond

a red balloon in cloudless sky was drifting west.


My cat curls in my lap to nap and purr

When my phone rings, I always think it's you

Anais lies undisturbed by my bathtub

A chocolate with red wine melts in my mouth.


A candle sits unlit on my nightstand

The ceiling fan's soft hum puts me to sleep

A shiver in the dark of moonless night

like fingers traveling, traces down my spine.


I make a mental note to tell you this....

(Poem 19) The Triversen. Write a triversen of 18-21 lines. (free verse form) The Triversen is: 1. accentual. The rhythm of normal speech, employing 1 to 4 strong stresses per line. 2. stanzaic, written in any number of tercets. Each tercet is a sentence broken into 3 uneven lines. 3. grammatical. A sentence is broken by line phrasing or delineating or sense units. There should be 3 units. L1 is a statement of fact or observation, L2 and L3 should set the tone, imply a condition or associated idea, or carry a metaphor for the original statement. 4.unrhymed. 5.alliterated. Alliteration contributes to stress.

(Assonance, consonance and onomatopoeia are also fine to create musical stresses.)

A Smile Was All It Took - #19

That summer, she was a woman obsessed
with the smile of a man she swore she'd seen
somewhere before....who made her smile.

She saw in his smile the same she had noticed
once in the stars, several seasons ago,
when she had dared to stare out... into the universe.

She needed to smile, oh how she needed to smile,
let her laughter spill out like bubbly champagne, when he
said "it's okay" ... she laughed.

She was reckless and happy that summer,
with-out worry that he might not get the joke
or wouldn't laugh........because he did.

On his face, his mouth and in his eyes,
was a smile that spoke in whispers "it's all right"
and told her simply ... he understood.

Laughing and smiling, skipping stones
across the pond and laughing at their inside joke,
he swiftly captured her heart ... with his smile.

There in their eyes, happiness found the truth
of love spoken in wisdom that knew,
a smile was all it took ... to change their world.

She Was a Willful Child - #20

With no doubt about it,
she'd toss her curls and flash
her eyes filled up with tears
to have her way and win.
She was a willfull child.

and bad on bad, she had
a way of intervening.
She'd stomp her foot and start
to scream, her blue eyes spilling.
She was a willful child.

Who grew quite beautiful
into the woman now
who knows she'll have her way
with a smile and wink.
She was a willful child.

In triumph, always has
her way, so play the game
by rules that she knows well;
and let her win and grin,
she was a willful child.

of summer's eve - #21


Oh, candle light
do not burn out on me tonight.

I do not think I will escape
the dark

of summer's eve
when August's heat
calls out in voices sweet
for sweat filled nights.

The cat purrs on the pillow.
The dogs are scattered on the bed.

The window's open even though
there is no breeze.

I set the thermostat on 68
and wonder why

I bought 1200 count
eqyptian cotton sheets.

A dusty moth circles the room
and flies direct into the flame.

Her wings on fire,
she flails about and
tries to fly,

then falls.

I close my eyes and pull
the pure eqyptian cotton to my ears,

I do not want to hear her scream.

Do not burn out on me tonight,
oh, candle light.

It's a Poem - #22


A poem is a sweet love song at night
that wakes you up with eyes reflected in
another's eyes there looking back at you.
It's in the shadow of the moment, now

of the first kiss, that takes your breath away.
You feel anothers heart against your chest,
that feeling that the oceans depth of love
you swam, has never been this deep before.

A poem is when the moonlight spills it's words
across the landscape soft to light your way
through the midst of midnight on the lost path
that seems not so familiar in the dark;

and yet you dance on down the course of love,
a slow dance, clinging to each other or
a tango fast and hard that makes you think
you easily could die with no regret.

A perfect word is waking in the night
to reach and find anothers hand to hold
but, when that touch sends tingles through your core,
you know it's love...and that's a perfect word.

A poem is in the laughter you know well
but in the same, a laugh that knows you, too.
One you can trust to always tell the truth
and there, it's in those eyes that harbor lights

which speak of lonely days and fevered nights.
A poem is that unselfish moment when
your lover's truth laid bare says, "I need you,
please need me near, as much as I need you."

And those words grip your ribs and squeeze you tight
and then they say, "I'll never let you go."
This lover knows your doubts and loves you still;
kisses you hard, sucks in your breath of life

and drinks it down; but, wakes with each new day
to love you more, once more. Now, that's a poem.

Morning's Gift - June 25, 2010 - #23


The dragonflies were faeries on the pond
with wings reflecting morning's sunlight gift;
A dragonfly ballet, oh, how they danced.

I watched in spellbound silence as they danced
across the water lilies on the pond,
my eyes entranced, bedazzled by the gift

of love poured out from God's own hand, a gift
of light and peace in play upon the pond.
My spirit joined the dragonflies and danced.

On sun-lit pond, a gift from God, we danced.

******************************************************************************************************
Peat's Poetry Class - Assignment 24 - The Quatratina; A Quatratina like a sestina has identities repeated at the ends of each line per stanza. It is made of: 4 quatrains and a couplet-envoy as follows: ABCD//DABC//CDAB//BCDA//envoy. The first letter falling somewhere within the mid-line of the envoy. 10 syllables per line is suggested but a syllabic meter of any sort can be used of any meter length or any syllabic-stanza form as quatrains. Identities should be identities of sound which include homonyms or the same word with prefixes or suffixes and not rhymes. It is an identity that is wanted on the ends of the lines and not rhymes. This form was invented by R H Peat 4/27/04.

Inheritance - #24


The oaks, pecans and cedar trees mark roads that bear
Family names carved in grave-yard stones, years ago.
Inheritance passed down parent to child, still poor
on land where cotton would not grow without the rain.

I ride these roads on my good horse and hold the reins
quite lightly in my hands, with strength he shares and bears
my weight, whatever way I choose for us to go.
This old road o'er the next hill to horizon pours.

I realize the gift in hand, I am not poor.
What will of God decreed I live when riches reign?
I’ve never known a life of need, nor had to bear
sore muscles ache from picking cotton, long ago.

I pause beneath the trees, and watch a sport's car go
Around the S curve much too fast, the engine pours
It’s roar and breaks my reverie, I hold the reins
And grasp horse-power in my hands, my truth laid bare.

Gratitude, pours out to generations, long ago;
angels bear my words toward heaven, soft as summer rain.

Now
summer;
ripe peaches,
blackberry vines,
plums like dark cherries,
a pathway of roses
fragrant in lush pink and red,
these pleasures of hot July sun
sweet to my taste and warm on my skin.
All day, in varied ways, I wish you here.

Irresistible presence of summer,
indigo skies... turn to velvet night,
day dreams washed in watercolor.
Fireflies twinkle blinking lights,
the mockingbird still sings
somewhere in the dark.
I want you now.
My lover,
please come,
soon.

My very humble attempt at Peat's Exercise (termed by him a challenge!) - A Decenelle is a 10 lined poem written in trochaic tetrameter with (accentual syllabic) lines: syllables per line as such: 8, 7, 8, 7, 8, 7, 8, 7, 8, 7. Rhyme scheme as such: x,a,x,a,x,a,x,b,x,b. Every other line (a rhyming line) is missing the unstressed syllable at the end of the line. So the rhyming lines have one less syllable which form a line with a masculine ending. Verbal abuse as a storm

Words
Pelting hail hits hard against her
skin, a storm of descant words.
Purple bruises ache unseen when
hidden deep like nestling birds.
Folded wings meet stinging fury,
outrage pours embittered dirge.
Nightime locked in dismal terror,
pray the dawn won't be deterred.
Cloudbursts die without a warning,
calm as if no storm occurred.

Prose - Peat’s Poetry Class

Snapped Shots

Time is of the essence now; we need capture moments in a net and clip their wings. The earth did tilt upon its axis, only for one second and the elevator jerked to a halt between floors 9 and 8. The blackness came on quick, a blink and the butterflies surfed on the breeze, not banging hard as we are willed to do. On that glittery night of the Christmas parade in our hometown, the bass drum reverberated in our chests; the pounding felt the same as blood’s course rush. The sun’s lush light at dusk, just yesterday, fell through the leaves of the pear tree and caught the fruit lying on the ground, fat rotting, golden globes. Do you know the flesh? Ah, tell me, please you know the same. Grasp your fingers fast into the mane that whips your face, fasten your legs onto the heaving sides and feel the quaking of the ground beneath our thunderous hooves.

18 lines, comparing in 2 stanzas, using 2 different anaphora


I am the shape of Change
____________________



I was the shape of selfish, thought I was so elfish
I had a bad genie wish, myopic shaped blue-ish
I was the shape of Cruel Names, in a scoring terrain
I was the shape of sad blame, born in the abused brain
I was the shape of fire, consumed like word-pyre
I was the shape of liar, won't you be my crier?
I was the shape of the guest, and I brought stale darkness
I was the shape of old death, slingshot stones from sly breath


* * *


I am the shape of the beast, until I can release
kindness that comes to the feast, then I'm the shape of peace
I am the shape of old wounds, that change with the new moons
I am the shape of movement, I strive for improvement
I am the shape of caring, brazen, bold and daring
I want the shape of Love's tunes, melodic honeymoons
I want the shape desire, funneled, a live-whyer
I want the shape of higher, Universal flier.



*****************************************************************************************************

the Suicide of Phoebe Prince and the 2 fallen angels
_________________________________________



Laughing, she came from Ireland
teen Princess with new girl essence
and how pretty her hair was hung


cascading softly 'round her face.
Laughing defiled her country smile
her curls twisted, she left this place.


I love you Mommy, she whispered...


Laughing girls with their jealous bleats
bully boys with those racing toys
who drove her down to obsolete.


Laughing at the 15 year old
so cru~el and not just at school.
Laughing, even as she lay cold.


Laughing, why.... after her defeat
-- is that a skill ? ... but who did kill
their joy? ... and what hell did they meet?


Two more angels, burned 'neath the street.
Chechnya's black widows billow
"Hail hate." ... laugh, cry, "...come death, to eat."


*****************************************************************************************************


Poem-3:

She came upon me like a pirate crew
excited, my heart, as I watched her move
thousands of tingles, from my eye-core view
"I'm calling... I'm calling to you..."

*

Oh the flowers she wore, like day, I found
were singing to waves of visual sound
but the nose never shared a rose like this
my eyes, first aromic see mist.

*

She begged me to breathe her sweet summer breeze
Heaven lent softness to tease with soft leaves
her limbs that mirrored ballerina ease
my angel of land, and of sea

*

My yearning was churning, and I awoke
breathing, not dreaming, the dry made me choke
my lovely's soft hair, was balding limp smoke
her angel skin cracked, and it broke

*

Her face, now framed in angry, dark rainbows
above the bubbling suspicious foes
her veins are cauldrons of live volcanoes
my Earth, she glows old toxic snow.


*****************************************************************************************************


Poem-4:

Spring was singing, high in the trees the day they were born
Warm, was rustling leaves so softly as if to adorn
heads with bonnets, tiny, as they lay nestled at home
and life did cherish the three hearts that were so alone
Twins like mirrors blessing their mother's brownish color
tinged with golden hues, and the darker one was smaller
Oh, their mother knew she had been flying, with good luck
til the changes of stormy weather suddenly struck
Fast was lightning that hit the dry forest trees near-by
Frightened as fire, and the smoke ran into their eyes
then the panic loomed like dragons breathing hot on ice
she could never leave her babies and death was her price
the rangers cried, finding birdlings, safe within her wings

No more than 24-25 lines; and no less than 12-13 lines. I have used 4 tercets and 1 quatrain, 16 lines, iambic tetrameter

It was Sunday afternoon on Mission St.



The child, eleven, baby doll
hissed not at any Heaven lore
she dare not fall there, not at all.

He drove through boring street decor
the trucker saw soft kitten paws.
The lonely man was looking for

and found his gift from Santi Clause.
"Sweet roadway angel, want a ride?"
The car behind honked no applause.

She couldn't talk, her eyes gasped wide.
He slammed the gas and off he gawked.
"Come back my friend," she cried inside...

so both alone, and off she walked.
returning quick, where was his lure ?
he was not there, ol' death just balked
no "friend" was there to rage-kill her.

The Exit Sign
___________



There was a sign above the door
the exit was dependent on
acceptable behavior for

the chess game where they were a pawn
co-operate and spill the hurt
or go upstairs and be long gone

they served them nut bread for dessert
and funny little cups of pills
that made the residents inert

and comatose with mental chills
and only one would laugh instead
poor "Pincurls" burned her skin for thrills

the exit sign for her is dead
although they'll give her sweet nut bread.

The Gate
________



She walked so quickly to the arch, she tripped.
A rock was hiding in it's grass-stained bed
a welcome mat, the gate was faded red
what secrets did it hide so tightly lipped
no holes, she climbed old cobblestone and gripped
the vines that covered green to serenade
the masquerade of cold hard palisade
for lone survivors in no movie script.


She slipped and almost lost the key she found
with trembling fingers slow to please the door
she heard a click to open entrance-way
her heart, it near-stopped, from the sudden sound
the creaking noise sent shivers to her core
she looked and stepped inside her same old day.

Oh Cobblestone, gray Cobblestone
it's time to dance to our new home
oh mama, sing and hold my hand
we'll dance like rain in summer land
and watch the sky that sighs in red
the day is gone, it's almost dead

it's not so bad, 'cause we ain't dead
and cold like this here Cobblestone
I like the flowers painted red
just like the ones we grew back home
not like this windy outdoor land
it feels so warm to hold your hand

oh mama, sing and swing my hand
the happy song that we ain't dead
they took our bed and took our land
but we can dance on Cobblestone
I love to laugh in our new home
the chilly air makes our lips red

so like my ribbons, swirly red
in my soft hair, from your soft hand
we used my hair bow box at home
to bury kitty, now she's dead
beneath the rocky Cobblestone
we buried in our back yard land

with seeds we put in earthen land
they grew such pretty colors red
we made a path with Cobblestone
you put some lotion on my hand
you said she lives beyond the dead
where time had come to take her home

I hope there's food in our new home
I want to live in Ever-land
where forest grows from fire dead
a magic wand of flower red
of petal tickets in my hand
for sunsets cruising Cobblestone

it's almost dead, the air is red
with evening land, and your soft hand
to sing of home on Cobblestone

RE: kah's assignments for RHPeat's class

Poem 1:

Write a poem of 16 to 20 lines in 2 parts creating a comparison (2 stanzas). Make use of two different anaphoras. Anaphora: = The repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of successive clauses. Focus on the three parts of a poem when writing the poem.


The Evening Does Glide

The fish are swimming elegantly
Catching my eye with their graceful turns.
Do they realize they are caged?
I am drawn to their fluid movements.
As they swim, the day slides away from me;
Better than an amber shot of relief
These sleek-finned beings.
Water sounds lull into evening’s gentle glide.

The fish are floating belly up
Catching my eye with their stillness.
It’s sad to be dead in your cage.
My staring missed something;
Watching is not the same as seeing –
What does it mean that I see you now?
Sleek-finned and floating
With me into evening’s gentle glide.

A more anaphoric version of kah's poem 1

I did this some what for fun. I realized that using anaphoric writing requires careful phrasing in order to pass along a concise meaning! You can see how this version of my poem gives a different feel to the work! Interesting exercise...

The Evening Does Glide

The fish are swimming elegantly
Catching my eye with their graceful turns.
As they swim, do they realize they are caged?
As they swim, I am drawn to their fluid movements.
As they swim, the day slides away from me;
As they swim, these sleek-finned beings
Are better than a shot of amber relief.
As they swim, water sounds lull into evening’s gentle glide.

The fish are floating belly up
Catching my eye with their stillness.
While floating, it’s sad to be dead in a cage.
While floating, my staring missed something;
While floating, watching is not the same as seeing –
While floating and sleek-finned and floating
What does it mean that I see you now?
While floating with me into evening’s gentle glide.



============================================================

Poem 2:

Write a poem of 15 to 18 lines using tercets (3 line stanzas). Make use of a refrain within the poem. Realize when you construct the refrain that it will be used within the three parts of the poem: opening, turning point and closure. So be aware that the refrain has to be constructed in a manner that will offer intent within all three literary parts of the poem. Understand also that a refrain doesn't have to be on every stanza or evenly spaced within the poem.


To Whom It May Concern

I’m writing this letter to you, as to you it may concern;
A dark ominous dawn opened my ordinary day
Black winged creatures fled the trees, dismayed.

My tread was heavier, my thoughts dread filled;
Seems this entire era howled out despair!
In search for doors, we found despondent air.

So tell me, Leader, what comes this way?
Should I take flight, should I stay?

I left the constructed safety of boxes -
I heard swirls of things not always considered.
“End of days”…”punished for evil ways”…such things uttered.

My coffee stop was deserted – no need for caffeine it seems.
People vibrating with the energy surge, though no more awake,
Still denying, broken hearted, losing their spiritual stake.

So tell me, Leader, what comes this way?
Should I take flight, or should I stay?

I believe they all expect a significant crashing
Something to call them all home, bring thunder to bear.
I knew it was to be quieter, not an action but a repair.

For what time is more broken, in need of a galaxian fix?
Above my insignificant breath, correction takes wing –
Hear the devout lift their voices…hoping mercy will sing.

So tell me, Leader, what comes this way?
Should I take flight, or should I stay?

===========================================================

Poem 3:

Write a poem of 16 to 24 lines that is a conceit. That means the complete poem will be based one metaphor. The opening should set up the premise for the poem. It could be just the title like: R. Burns poem “my love is like a red red rose.” Where he makes the statement in the title and then goes on to speak about the rose as his love. But the title does not have to state the premise but at least it should be present in the first stanza. Write the poem in quatrains. The closure should relate to both sides of the metaphor in some way without revealing the deeper meaning of the poem. The closure needs to tie the opening and turning point together in some way to form a new concept


A Conceit

I am celestial in my little death
Roaming through velvet eaves.
Each fold of time mine to leap,
Deep night sky touching my skin.

No gravity to keep me tethered.
I design my own spatial shell.
Unknowable, beyond common
Words or intuition.

Radiance coats me hazy gold
I’m a heavenly body up for veiwing
I feel eyes upon me, silken
Now I burst into full color!

Time to alight, for awakening nears
See the Ruler rise? Paint the sky surreal.
Chastised, I breathe out my last stars
Open back to my little life.


=============================================================

Poem 4:

Write a poem of 16 to 24 lines using couplets (2 line stanzas). Make use of ambiguity within this poem. Allow for more than one interpretation. Or let the opening and turning in the poem be extremely different within the presentation so they don’t appear related to one another in any way at all. Let the poem be equivocal in thought and vision. Stay focused on the three parts of the poem: opening, turning point and closure. So be aware that the ambiguity has to be constructed in a manner that will offer content within the reader; allow for discovery on the readers part. Understand that ambiguity doesn't have to be on every stanza of the poem as long as the is carried throughout the overall presentation.

The Gift

Goblets sit hollow, holding promise
Whispering sacred songs for other’s notice.

There is much variety among those vessels
Each carefully designed to cradle the blessings.

Not meant for vacancy these fertile cups,
Repel tainted fingers; only the pure may touch.

Enter the rapiers, gleaming and straight,
Brimming with character of strength, weight.

Each bold blade will find the proper seat
A table will be set; chalices, knives, complete.

Proper use of such common utensils
Protect each other – avoid pretenses.

The effort borne here will create a great gift -
Goblets will hold what the rapiers impart swift.

In time, overflowing, spilling life fruit
Chalices will empty, fulfilling their use.

Silver light bathes, the cycle completes.
The cups will return, placed again at the seat.

Mighty swords will be cleaned gleaming
Awaiting these hallowed goblets, dreaming.

The gift lies not in the song or dance:
It resides in the union, the striking of balance.

Poem 5

Write a poem with regulated syllabic lines: The poem should have 10 to 15 lines made up of verses with 8 or 10 syllables each: Regulated metric lines have the same number of syllables each--you have to chose a number - I chose 10 syllables…

The Six Napoleons

I can hear them preparing for battle
In the small War Planning room just below.
Steady murmurs of strategic battles
Punctuated by sharp words of dissent.
Six little generals fight for the top spot –
Their very honor and manhood hanging
Above the circle of their heated talk.
Who will lead the first face-off tomorrow?
Which soldiers best chosen for their front line?
They decide the fate of their brave units
In the basement, among the dust and bugs -
Tomorrow: Pokemon battles begin!

==============================================================

Poem 6

Write a poem with regulated syllabic stanzas: The poem should have between 10 and 24 lines--there is a number of choices here within the number of lines depending on how many lines you have per stanza. You can use any number of even syllables within each of your lines, make sure they are an even number of syllables. You can use 4 to 5 stanzas within your poem--no couplets

Loneliness


The wind whips down over the barren land
Searching for trees to tease.
Restlessness grows within movement,
Small whirls of doubt stir anxiously.

The wind spins upwards, dust settling in its wake.
Where are the trees with the whispering leaves?
What has happened to the flowers’ salutes?

Each corner of existence sits empty.
No welcoming ruffle of fur
No pleasing spread of wings to honor the updrafts.

Truly frightened now, the wind grows
Desperately seeking the familiar shapes;
Landscapes once easily followed.

Even the mountains have taken their leave;
Leaving no gullies to play in,
No peaks to rashly crash into.
Nothing greets the searching wind that travels
Endlessly seeking out lost friends.

Revision of assignment 6
I misunderstood the stanza form. Here is a corrected version of the assignment.

Lonliness


A hungry wind whips down over the barren land
Searching for trees to tease. Restlessness grows
Within small whirls of doubt.

The wind spins upwards, dust settling in its wake.
Where are the trees with the whispering leaves?
And the flowers’ salutes?

Each corner of existence sits darkened, empty.
No scent sought in the air, no ruffled fur
No pleasing spread of wings

To honor the updrafts. Truly frightened, the wind
Grows desperate for familiar landscape shapes.
Mountains have taken leave;

No gullies left to play in, no rash crashing peaks,
The searching wind that forever travels
Seeking out long lost friends.

Writing Exercise 7

WRITE A PANTOUM -

1. Write a quatrain/ a four-line stanza. Let the lines have either an end-stop or an enjambment on the end of the line. I suggest that line 2 have an enjambment and that line 4 have an end-stop. This will allow each stanza to flow to the last line and then conclude. Also keep in mind that lines 1 & 2 will be the closure at the end of the poem. So if you give a lot of thought to the beginning here, you fill find the ending of the poem easier as well.
2. Take lines 2 & 4 of the first stanza and make them lines 1 and 3 in the next stanza. Then complete the second stanza, by inserting the missing lines that connect 1 & 3 in the lines 2 & 4 positions. Figure on 5-6 stanzas within the poem 20-24 lines or less if you want to. But it is more difficult to write a short pantoum.
3. Repeat the pattern for each stanza always taking lines 2 & 4 and moving them to lines 1 & 3 in the next stanza. So you would be moving lines 2 and 4 of the 2nd stanza to lines 1 & 3 in the third stanza, and so on and so forth. Do this until you reach the last stanza of the pantoum.
4. In the final stanza remember you will be using lines 1 & 3 as lines 2 & 4 in the closure of the poem. You use those two lines that haven't been repeated yet in the closure of the poem. That’s lines 1 and 3 of the first stanza to close the poem. Now There is an option in the closing of the poem; you can make line 3 the 2nd line of the final stanza, and make line 1 the 4th line of the stanza in the last quatrain of poem if you want. So either way is acceptable for the final stanza in the form. This final step brings the poem full circle.
Keep regular syllabic count per line - 8 or 10 suggested

I chose 10 syllables per line



This Little Girl
She was a bright child with a quick mind
Filled with curiosity, she never
Left a question unasked, a rock unturned.
Her spirit was haloed with moondust stars.

Filled with curiosity, she never
Thought to slow down her endless desires.
Her spirit was haloed with moondust stars.
Sweet, engaging, she made friends easily.

Thought to slow down her endless desires,
Her parents forbid her to go to school.
Sweet, engaging, she made friends easily
Of maids, gardeners, shopkeepers and more.

Her parents forbid her to go to school
So she often times sat upon the knee
Of maids, gardeners, shopkeepers and more.
This little angel learned life from the living.

So she often times sat upon the knee
Of one particular favorite old man.
This little angel learned life from the living
Never knowing she was a good teacher!

Of one particular favorite old man
She knew a secret that she longed to tell.
Never knowing she was a good teacher
She gently whispered into his old ear -

"I know a secret that I long to tell!"
He bent closer still, anxiously waiting.
She gently whispered into his old ear:
"You are my own grandpa! I love you so!"

The gentle grandpa gave her a small squeeze.
She was a bright child with a quick mind.
Sweet kiss on his cheek; He's glad she never
Left a question unasked, a rock unturned.

Poem 8

The Hollander sonnet - 13 lines, 13 syllables each line

On Love and Other Variables

Skies I have witnessed in startling electric blue
Only to transform with waves of violent violet hue.
Peaceful breezes I have felt that caress and subdue
Then change in fickle whims to lash wildly in rue.
There is no shortage of examples denoting change
Of nature’s fickle nature exacting her revenge.
Childish it may seem as I think on love and how
Wholly I succumbed, without question taking the vow.
I knew I would honor my words; was certain of you
Imagine when I learned how like shifting winds you blew.
My sky turned turbulent, the ground underneath churned
The center I cleaved to brought pain as I was spurned.
Now I am the changing shade of violent violet hue.

===========================================================

Assignment 9:

Write a 10 to 18 line poem in blank Verse (no rhyme) using your choice of iambic tetrameter (4) or iambic pentameter (5). Stanzas are OK. That is either 8 syllables or 10 syllables per line with 4 or 5 iambs respectfully for tetrameter and pentameter.



The Dance of Love’s Most Perfect Blade

You take this blade and dig it deep
Into my lovely breast. You twist
and turn repeatedly, in this,
the dance that you have chose. Now turn!
Dig in! Delight in deep’ning pain!
You feel the dance become intense -
Hold on to me, lest I should fall,
Your careful plunder just a game
To soothe your aching soul. Upon
My chin you touch your lips to taste
the blood that flows. Be gentle now
as I am faint and in your care.
Remove your knife with softest hiss,
And hear my heart that beats so loud.
Your tears for me, they do not fall
but drip from knife as poison rain.
You please yourself as I then slip -
A heap upon the bloody ground.

Turn Away

What have you left for me to call my own?
My sorrow grew from love removed in whole;
You had no heart inside your broken soul.
Instead of time easing my ache, it’s grown.

Now here you stand before me with your tears
To plead with me for mercy on your ways
Your naked need pulls me into a daze.
You say you miss our love, my arms, those years…

No longer can I trust the words you say
With great despair I choose to walk away.

Streetwalker

You often see her walk along the street.
She radiates something you cannot name.
If only you could gain a chance to meet

this beauty who was born against the grain.
Her lovely eyes stay focused on the way
ahead; she does not see you yearn in vain.

You watch her hips so captured by their sway.
What’s this? She turns her head a little bit
and bats her eyes at you! Now dare to play

the age old game of love! Pursue, not quit,
with confidence. Imagine then your deep
chagrin - her smile’s not for you! Submit

to shame a burning heart that longs to weep.
You turn away to hide your tell-tale blush.
No other sees the secret you would keep
of hidden love; an unrequited crush!

Fantasy of You

The sweetest visions fill my mind with you
Completed by designs within my womb
Which burns as secret passions often do.

The times we’ve spent embraced are very few
My fantasies seek flesh within our tomb -
The sweetest visions fill my mind with you.

Your stroke, so real inside my mind, I knew
that I was lost to love that could consume,
Which burns as secret passions often do.

Tonight is for desires that construe
to suffer me that ache and violent bloom -
The sweetest visions fill my mind with you.

Perhaps I’ll gently touch where you once drew
your kiss, caress, in wishful lover’s swoon,
Which burns as secret passions often do.

My breaths escape to seek a way into
the center where our love is sun and moon!
The sweetest visions fill my mind with you
Which burns as secret passions often do.

Poem 13

TERZANELLE — is a 19 line poem with five triplets that interlock and a final quatrain; the 1st and 3rd lines of stanza one will repeat as refrain lines in the quatrain -- at the ending. The middle line of each tercet becomes a “repeton” as the final line of the following triplet, except the middle line of the 5th couplet is repeated in the quatrain. This was hard!!



Siren's Song

She’s born from some concept of fleshly sin
Cursed with lack of words and swan-like wings
Desire wakens sorrow carried within

She wants to cry without her voice - but sings
With deep’ning pain that never seems to end,
Cursed with lack of words and swan-like wings.

Upon her perch, she readies to ascend
Seeking some way to call her lover home
With deep’ning pain that never seems to end.

She spreads her wings into the night to roam
Across the ocean’s tide sending her song
Seeking some way to call her lover home.

Betrayed by one who called her actions wrong
Forever she will search to fill the ache
Across the ocean’s tide sending her song.

Eternal sound, siren of her heart break
Forever she will search to fill the ache.
She’s born from some concept of fleshly sin
Desire wakens sorrow carried within.

Today you choose to keep your place with me

Poem 15


Shakespearean or English sonnet, written in iambic pentameter. Divides into three quatrains (four-line groupings) and a final couplet, rhyming (abab cdcd efef gg.)

Sonnet No. 1

The ghostly wraiths of things long gone desire
to gather in haunting song; In doing such
create within a force compelled by fire.
Now sing they will lest I forget the touch

of all that I still need. But time has gone;
Their song falls deaf upon my depths and all
desire lay still. While passions rest I long
for something more. Is this new life a pall

upon my self? A lack resides in me.
The call of heat and ardency disdains
my own forsaken dream. I long to be
complete! My aching need flows out my veins

to join eternal flow. Now swim into
this liquid jewel – and I shall wait for you.

============================================================

Poem 16

Petrarchan or Italian Sonnet — The rhyme scheme of a Petrarchan Sonnet is a little more difficult than the Shakespearian Sonnet. The first eight lines equal two quatrains (a b b a, a b b a) called an octave. The last six lines form the sestet. In early sestets the lines equaled two envelope tercets (c d c, c d c)



Sonnet II

From salty seas, from power’s tease, a spark
of sacred majesty. Supplied with time
an unknown mode creates a life sublime.
Emergent grace will grow from blinding dark.

Abundance flares in fertile ground; extends
beyond that lonely bed of primal birth.
We all become the vibrancy of earth!
The bond that binds us all to life depends

in full upon the oldest mystery.
The building blocks are part of us; our breath
our blood, our flesh, our soul! A destiny

is built for each within eternity.
Do not forget how we began for death
is wrought with our demands of selfish need.

===============================================================

Poem 17

The sestina - form as follows: 1. ABCDEF, 2. FAEBDC, 3. CFDABE, 4. ECBFAD, 5. DEACFB, 6. BDFECA, 7. (envoi) ACE. . In place of a rhyme scheme, the sestina relies on end-word repetition to effect a sort of rhyme. These repetitions are called identities. The sestina uses 6 different identities in 6 sestets that change their position within each following stanza. followed by a closure of 3 lines (a tercet) that uses all six identities. 3 identities at the end of the lines and 3 identities in the mid-line. The 3 line closure is called the envoi or the tornada. Written in free verse. I also repeated "let go, my love" within the line that used the A identity...just for fun!



To Heal

Let go, my love, uncage the joy that I can see
which cries for recognition! Though you desire
to deny that depth of being, there will be no rest
within your heart without connection. Give
up your tender pain, let love in again. I am one
who holds the same exquisite ache.

Seems we gave equally - those deeds, this ache
that still remains. Let go, my love, look deep and see
all I am for you. Give of yourself, be the one
to mend what has been broke. Dare to seek desire
that consumes! Erase the past! Burn anew! Then give
way, continue. I wait in painful silence for rest,

wearied from healing. Why not release the rest?
I am the consciousness of all; I know the ache
span the time that grows between. Can you give
into the need, my love, let go? Can you see
I am the ocean? I am the breeze? I am all desire
that will ever be? Share the flow of breath as one

with me. Set the knowing you hide free - you are the one!
Breathe with me… my tender mind, open the rest;
as you fill me, so I fill you. There is no more to desire;
we are complete. Time loses all meaning, pain loses all ache.
Let go, my love, of carnal shells. You have no need, you’ll see;
Your spark of life, united, needs only to give!

Each breath you take, I take; Let blood cease its flow - give
up the crush of flesh entwined – the ecstasy of souls-as-one
will sate what’s long been starved. Let go, my love; see
how you are all you need to be. Now seek to rest
your mind. Feel our shimmer with sweetest ache,
to expand like breath inhaled! All brilliance, all desire

will light eternally the path you seek. Your desire
to be all will draw me near. Awakened so, I will give
the stars my eyes, the moon my light, the ocean my ache;
Mortal needs drop ‘way as celestial cycles make us one
and whole. Within spiritual glow, find rest
from pain. Let go, my love, let go…I am all you see.

I exist in your desire, I look through you to see
my ache so gently eased. Now I glow with all the rest
you seek to give to me. We become the infinite one.

All This While Dreaming

All this while dreaming
Streaming before my eyes!
Glitter littered snow fields
Delicately lace dust frills
Melancholy daisies

Sink into cloudless flight…
Dizzy vapors wisp by
Amazing creation
From my mind
Given to imagination
All this while dreaming!

Damn It

Oh, I am a fetching thing,
a delightful doll
that all would dress at will.



Oh, my words are a balm
to the lonely liquid ache
of a one- eared man.



I want to be known
for something sweeter
than luscious letters.

Soul talk, star light, please!
Everyone wants the fiery flesh -
guess that’s all I’m good for.

Oh I’m a fetching thing -
no not really, just a coin
that's been rubbed wrong too often.

Oh my words are a balm
that slicken my skin
as I die within a little more.

I wanted a moonbeam
to shine on me and see
more than my skin.

Soul talk, star light, please;
I just didn’t know my pain
was meant to stand alone.

It worked for me
until I met you.

sexy eyes, blue.
You were the dope
dealer, too.

I liked the high
the sex, new friends.

At sixteen, the party
never ends -
Until I woke up
and broke your heart.

Duality

I am a sunray shining down on you.
The wind cannot move me,
I am steady, ever present, you see.
My golden reach has no boundaries
The glimmer I am, both infernal and eternal,
Heats you up;
Yes, I make the sap rise
You should not feel surprise,
I am a sunray, it’s what I do.

I am a moonray shining down on you.
The wind cannot move me,
I am steady, ever present, you see.
My silver reach has no boundaries
The shimmer I am, both cool and continuous,
Turns you on;
Yes, I make the passion rise
This comes as no surprise,
I am a moonray, it’s what I do.

Poem 22

Write a metaphoric poem about poetry or a poem that deals with writing. What I am suggesting is a conceit.


On Poetry

It’s a moody being that lives inside me.
A single word…
Or an elegant tracing of shadows cast by the late day‘s light
will set it off.
Until I give it what it wants,
it clamors and hammers away.
I cannot deny it!
The rush of demand ignites me -
After all, we are part of the same whole.

Other times, gloomy and blue,
it pulls me down
into its miserable little self.
Still I find I will submit
the most tender parts of my soul…
I spill our harrowing sorrow,
weeping as the words bloom on my page.

I panic when it becomes quiet,
unconcerned with the inking of my depths.
I prod and provoke it…
Stroke it with a hope
of its awakening
to burn through me in a sweat
that drips onto the sheet,
staining it with our intimate sheen.

Fallen

He fell to earth with broken wings
In his attempt to soar. His blood
Now flows as part of his rebirth.

This man’s desire for true rebirth
is not enough to heal his wings;
The wound is deep inside his blood.

He makes his grave from dirt and blood
with hopes of rising up, rebirth!
Instead he dies with broken wings.

His wings, a soul; his blood, a birth.

Infatuation

Every night she walks under pale moonlight.
She keeps the same route, unaware I watch
her from my window. Sometimes I believe
she might just be my imagination.

Is she a daydreamer? Imagining
as she walks beneath my window her light
steps call to me? I am compelled to watch
as she moves below; my heart takes its leave

with vain effort to touch her like a leaf
reaching for the breeze. Does she imagine
love in the moon, one to join her delight
in her strolls? I am made bold by watching

her silvered form - tonight I will not watch
in silence! She’s for me, this I believe;
We are each other’s imagination
brought to life under purple skies, moonlit

in cool relief. I choose to imagine
we are blessed. Watch our love become light!

Pirouette

Their lips meet with tender
passion. Gently their mouths
speak of the love beneath.

for one another clears
away old laws of love.

You

sad? Rather I gave thanks to
strange gods that sanction both kindness

delight at your horrified expression?

Another Wonder

Song
exists
every where.
Simply awake!
You will hear the dawn’s
sweet joyful melody.
Autumn afternoons provide
the season’s gently soothing tune.
Surrounded by nature’s orchestra,
we are given true music to enjoy.

We are gifted with senses so fine tuned,
we feel gentle vibrations from earth.
Our deepest selves respond to song
then send our own back out.
These rhythms of being
connect in the air
creating a
symphony
all can
hear.

How To Be Human

Bleed
for me
all your dreams
eternally.
To bear witness to vuln’rability
brings about the more human side of me.
You could save me.
Don’t you feel
how I
yearn?
All
I need
are gentle
demonstrations -
Show me how you bleed so realistically.

In The Morning

Your whisper brings dawn
to midnight eyes.
Lying here
without
you,
flew
through doubt
to reach fear.
Why won’t love rise?
You inspire, turn on
my dormant love song.
Tell me, what lies
far and near?
Shine out
true -
You,
devout.
Bring love here
Give me sweet sighs -
Your whisper brings dawn.

===============================================================

Prose Poem

On Time

I spend far too much time alone. I’m used to this; it is of no bother to me. My needs are few, and I have no trouble meeting them myself. How difficult is it, for example, to walk though a beautiful wood in blissful appreciation? I need no help for that. The space around me that most would think deserves another person, is wholly mine. I can swing my arms if I care to. I can expand my thoughts disproportionately with no apology. Who would want to be rudely bumped by one of my disturbing ideas? No one!

I cannot be a loner with a filled calendar. The expected interactions, the small talk that I struggle to make while big huge thoughts wait in the wings, wishing to expand, seem pointless. I do what I must, not a lick more! Why, writing this piece would be impossible with someone at my side. They would feel extraneous, and so they would be. I would be deemed cold, reclusive, and unfriendly by those unwelcome extraneous creatures, when in actuality I am merely spending all my warmth and kindness on myself, who, by the way, will always be appreciative. I will always be aware of the kindnesses and comfort I offer myself, avoiding forever the smeared emotional mess of being unheard.

Argonelle assignment

You and I

Why you?
To teach me who I am -
Through lessons that soon divided
foolish notions once confided.
To teach me who I am.

Why me?
My strength is built from you.
Life has been tread with heavy shoes
without regard for the small muse.
My strength is built from you.

Pindaric Triad assignment


Light Eternal Transforms

I

Ah, the Noble Human!
A great gathering of strings and pulp;
An aching strainer that struggles to let light
fade the shadows of doubt.

Empathy, compassion;
These are the emotions of blood.

The heart pumps with an ebb and flow.


II

I am a human - being.
Like the rain, I will fall.
Like the sun, I will rise.

I will tide eternal –
I cannot be stopped.

Time will erase all traces.


III



Lust burns superb -
In its heat, I transform.

My skin delights
in the pull of the moon -
Love, a liquid silver bath,
reveals the deeply hidden.

ThoughtCaster's Fishing in the Sea of Imagination Class Assignments - Springsize

Poem 1

RE: Fishing in the Sea of Imagination

Write a poem on the back of a sea turtle




Once Upon My Sea, Turtle Swimming
----------------------------------------------


Come ride with me, upon my cool blue-green
I've years to tell, five hundred that I've seen



When I was prey.... I prayed, as an eggling
with harden shell, I left for waves cresting



Oooh to the warm 'neath my crisp water foam
here in heaven, my sea and happy home



Once, Oh Flippers! There were big submarines
rabid cigars, bleeding red halloweens



and long before then, the towers on land
see where they crumbled, Atlantis to sand



and how I love to play in their cities
those squares in the round of ocean fishies



now, let us swim to the spill where it's grim
deep darken scares... at the slippery rim



plastic, like Moon, with red lips of herring
glaring, like light, as if she were daring



critters to look, "come close... see me glitters"
strangling, she kills with old pop top litters



lacy stranger, a most seductive host
tangle with ropes on a toxic spill coast.



I, with my shell, it's a hard Noah's ark
long, I will live... in this colorful park.



*****************************************************************************************************


Poem 2

RE: Fishing in the Sea of Imagination

Write a poem about the future in 100 years




When I look into the future


I see the ancients in pictures, books and memory
I see the land was changed, ruined with apology
I see the Earth we filled with our chemical troubles
I see the new world, covered with clear plastic bubbles
I see the winds blowing and moving our ball cities
I see the floor stays stable, thanks to technology
I see the daylight, but night here is mythology
I see the clean food, grown beneath a clear canopy
I see the jars and containers are used sparingly
I see the people are wealthy with health, and happy
I see the lifespan is longer than it used to be
I see the new land of Venus is much more lively
I see the humans using psychic abilities
I don't see the deadly anger of hostility.

RE: Fishing in the Sea of Imagination - Poem 2



On the wings of a prayer
__________________



Traveled I, 'pon wings where I heard
every single hungry need-word
every heart was filled with wantings
watching, I, their fruitful spawnings



each one wearing different rainbows
all be waiting for their halos
some be sowing heaven ration
all be looking for compassion



eating foods that deadly deceive
begging for life, without disease
feeding some, from lusty fountains
feeling like some weigh a mountain



tasting envy for their brother
finding ways to own another
wishing for a sweet love honey
some spent time just for the money
.


silent thinking, fill the needs please
errant travels bringing to knees
Holy beings praying, give me
my way, all that makes me happy.

Poem 4

RE: Fishing in the Sea of Imagination

Write your with one of these three, as if you were a journalist,
and if you are a jourmalist write one as a poet.


Hear Our Hearts
_____________


Come
the day
we will say
no more, no way
this is our playground
hear our heart-filled sound
we want Clean for our days
we don't want the deadly sprays
loathsome, bleeding as the fountains
ooozing land-fills, grown to mountains
nauseous poisons halo planet, like crowns
Who is running circus Earth, like a clown
side-show apathy has come to town
see the big tent, cover, foul brown
smelly like burnt popcorn seeds
air that feeds you and me
growing fungi weeds
Come the people
who rebel
justice
hell

RE: Poetry Discussions' with 21st Century' Suggestions
Tell us something that matters with words that tell us about the world, about the human condition.


Those Crafty Government Planners
____________________________



Rockefeller oil painted Earth-land ever-green
FBI were planning lots of heinous, new drug schemes
working with the CIA... and Stanford's protocol
secrets buying U. S. Army, implementing all.



Searching answers, explorations, study human mind
drooling hungry, wanting psychic flavors, genuine
teamster players, setting motion, running for a goal
test-case study, Rhesus woman, matching their control.



Never given chemicals or prior medicine
perfect finding golden pinpoint, what was happenin'
massive spices ruin pudding, doses added low
coastal travel, night in May-time, Castroville they go



Operation Artichoke-ville, snickering the name
grinning pompous, planting seed deed, cunning doctor game
baby Rhesus, conceived quickly, hidden, like a treat
monitoring, years of singing, private obsolete



Mouthy Birdie, talking, blurting innocently truth
something missing, seeing too much, mirror-spouting sleuth
time to mute her, little Bluebird, medical invent
focus silent, mental eye-view speech, to circumvent.



Learning paranormal muscles, inside exercise
quiet watchful observations, 1950 spies
leaving her room, bending no spoons, questioning her wise
sadly mutant seemed to recoil, empty stare-full sighs



After thirty birthdays, living homeless, feeling free
year-long sojourn watching her gifts open flowerly
silver flute-long, golden harp-songs, playing melodies
humans helping, never hurting, dressing strangely, she



Landing hometown, finding new sounds, voicing angrily
wanting honest planet choices, suing companies
Eli Lilly, poison peddlers, endless money tree
branches feeding healthy birdies, toxic needle tea



Hood-wink public, growing offspring, altered DNA
breeding weaker humans, sanctioned, by the AMA
filling worker beehives, global selfish enterprise
samson blue-blood, given long-life nectar to survive



These new crimes are sold as pus, they all contaminate
plastic, gaseous baby bottles, toys with new lead paint
even dry-wall kills us slowly, China doesn't care
No one watching governmental plan to lead us, where?

ThoughtCaster Fishing in the Sea of Imagination Poetry Class

Assignment Lesson 6: The boat tipped over and the gear has sunk to the bottom...Write a poem using figurative language


The Mayan Mayday
________________





The boat, she tipped, I should have called her ship
my pray-full, bended fingers lost the grip
and I began to spiral in the sea
and like a brick, I sank beneath my plea


the pressure loomed within, but didn't hurt
my body squeezed, a new me slowly burst
and I began to swim with silky fins
that felt like wings, of wavy, voiceless grins


and I did move them, loving my control
and gliding I, did swish and sway my stroll
to other realms where currents talked to me
a Mayan Mayday calling history


old pyramid, beneath the dark and cold
those temples, dressed in slumber's sandy gold
that greeted fish and I, to stop and view
the squares, our mother nature would not use


and then the round volcano rumble-groaned
the lake of fire, ten thousand years had grown
and I went sliding on the river, warm
and surfed the honey mountain plumey storm


that showered flatlands, thick with melting walls
and left me on the high ground, watching all
as Venus crossed the corner of the sun
returning, waving bye, her cycle, done


and all the planets in our oval belt
were lining up to point, at what I felt
was ticking, in my blood like please, yes please
please help our hearts to bring us to our knees


~ chorus ~ *


'cause we're a long time coming, we
hear Mayan Mayday calling, please
the world has come undone
what must we do, I'm asking you
the clean-up can be fun


the Mayan Mayday calling, please
our world is up to you
Come join as one, we share a sun
beneath a heaven view.


The Mayan Mayday calling with
a message from the past
We're all grown up, and take a cup
with cheer-filled toast at last


We thank the Mayans for the call
they left for us upon their wall
That Mayan Mayday message saved
we raise our future from the grave.

RE: Poetic Speeches, The Grandest Gig




Dear Mister President, I hope you hear me.
Our land is oozing toxins and we're dying.
We need to learn respect for our sweet Earth
and ban the use of chemicals of kill-worth.
We need to clean our planet and all life here
Mistakes are worse than say Oil ~ Nuclear


Please stop the killing, poisons stored on the shelf
We want a Country where the Wealth is Good Health
The Meds cure NOTHING, isn't that revealing ?
And Jesus didn't send a bill for healing...
and where did common sense go ? We're left reeling
from drugs that over-load with pseudo feeling.


I see the healthy bodies feeding good brains
of robust children growing with no pus strains
that alter DNA... it's not opinion
anti-biotic, over-dosin' usin'
each generation we have... they are weaker
complacent as the drugs make voices meeker


I know the things to do to make life better.
We start with prison reform and the debtor.
We build new prisons in Four Corners high-land.
We help them build the houses, solar green and
we help them plant the foods to heal the nations
and let them eat the foods of their salvations.


We make it mandatory new trees give food
We plant free gardens, feeding with a good mood
We change the laws of living with the sweet spice
We designate a dying space for the vice
the altered stay inside the cubicus fun
If it's alive, we share outside in the sun.

.


the Pocahontas Tree
_________________




I wear her bones, like in my DNA
secrets of the child, were hidden away.
Just like she, and so mischeviously...
her strength in my blood, flows genetically.



All were to love her, as she loved them first
Maiden whose youth, did betray her with thirst
Indian sweet-natured, American
with legends from two worlds, they still hold hands.



The Captain, John Smith, from cobblestone
whose tendered seed, his true love had sewn....
this child of their own, their cultures disowned,
silently stealthily, they lived alone.



"Father, I beg you, please spare him, for me
Let him die not, by your hand, Father, please.
For I will not live... without him, I leave
with our child within, who lives... already."



Gentleman Sir Rolfe, almost family
I wear my cheekbones, with high pleasantry
Feathers and Eagles, still sacred, and free
live in Pocahontas' family Tree.

Cleopatra yon heir to Royal throne
kissing her dreams, they were not cast or thrown
from captive heart, cherished he, dearest-owned
touch her not, nights of the river alone



oh she was born, lovely curls in dark hair

the Last of the Pharaohs, oh Queen, oh dare
take not thy blood to rule, from Egypt's chair



the best of the bleed from her father's seed
weak and cruel, Pharoah A-u-le-tes
his gifts of flute-music grew swift, with ease
enchantingly she spoke, pleasing, like breeze



Cleopatra sang Music of the Nile
orphaned at 17, the young ruler child
the snake was an eunuch, power, beguiled
Syria come 21, so exiled



and though she loved Caesar, bearing his son
the love of her life, t'would compare to none

we left your world, for places where we can

build dreams and homes, and plant our foods to live
not line your pockets, forced to give and give

the call to arms, we men who rise from fields

THE HISTORY POETRY CLASS - The Black Death Lived


The Black Death Lived
__________________



The birth of black death, lived in decadence
it was a time of moron innocence
the era, thirteen hundred forty four
when rampant, death was leaking past the door

society or poverty, they lived
it was a time of mourning, none could give
a reason they could see, and where was faith?
frustration turned to anger and to hate

I do not know how even one survived
they ate of dead foods, breeding grounds, alive
and ripe with germs that made their insides cry
they washed in rivers meant for drinking, sigh

they drank fermented berries, thick with time
compassion ran, not rampant but as crime
no morals ruling choices, dipped in whine
and where was clean, no-where that you could find

and germs did form from dark polluted blood
no longer swift, was feeding brain with mud

and thoughts became deranged like body smells
as germs built cities deep within the wells
inside the fatty tissues, they did dwell
volcanic lesions dressed in body hell

and as the tides of filth did ebb their flow
the town-folk wakened, slow, like winters go

they cleaned the streets, and washed their hands and feet
they burned their trash and buried in a heap
they started eating plants with animals
the evolution slowed the funerals
and soon, the ladies wrote of marigold.
the Nineteen Hundreds list the last plague told.

Balladeer's class

(Poem 1, Gimmee a poem....and make it a triple! Tercet)
Brat

As I frittered my youth away,
There was no one place we could stay
We had to move again.

The military didn't know
If they should keep us or make us go.
Renting should not be a sin.

Throughout the country we traveled,
Always new maps to unravel.
Now how many places have I been?-

One short stay we flew abroad,
Then back through familiar soil we trod.
Regardless, we had to unpack again.

Now that I am wiser and older,
The military is no longer my boulder.
I run up the hill unfettered, stopping at attention.
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////


(second attempt at poem 1)
I traveled all my youth this way
There was no one place we could stay
We could not help but move again

The military didn't know
Should they keep us or let us go
Renting was considered a sin

Throughout the country we traveled
Always new maps to unravel
How many places have I been?

For a short spell we lived abroad
'Til familiar soil we'd trod
Still we had to unpack again

Now I have entered adulthood
I wonder at how long I stood
Not at ease, but at attention
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

(Smelly Feet Project, poem 2)
Mini Vacation

Summer’s powers are revealed,
Flowers decorate the field,
Picnic basket at my feet,
Birds are singing songs so sweet,
Love is in the air today,
Felt in each of the sun’s rays,
Kites are floating overhead,
Frisbees land in clover beds,
Only one thing mars this day,
Driving two hours just to play

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

(Rispetto, poem 3)
Don’t You Know Me?

Reveal yourself to me; there is no need to hide
Low promises are whispered, to encourage trust
Awaiting your response, both arms are open wide
So patiently remaining, never one to rush

Do not from my gaze shy, for I am here to stay
As long as dreams remain, forever and a day
For I am Eros, Cupid, Love, so pure and true
And there's a special place in my heart just for you

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

(poem 4, quatern, Balladeer's class)
Won't You Be My Neighbor?

There goes my crazy neighbor, Flo.
She wonders when her cash will grow.
You see, she planted twenty dimes,
To sow some cash instead of limes.

All dressed in shades of green Day-Glo,
There goes my crazy neighbor, Flo.
She also favors polka dots,
And ties her hair in sailor’s knots.

Her dog is odd as he can be;
His diet includes herbal tea,
There goes my crazy neighbor, Flo.
I wonder where it is she goes?

I tried to ask her yesterday,
But she kept skating on her way.
She winked and said “My UFO.”
There goes my crazy neighbor, Flo.
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

(the Triolet, poem 5, Balladeer's class)

Outpatient

It was supposed to be a simple surgery,
When suddenly my body screamed in anguished cries...
The numbing agents seemed so powerless to me.
It was supposed to be a simple surgery.
My inner scars will be the vivid memories.
"BP's are dropping, thirty-six and twenty-eight!"
It was supposed to be a simple surgery,
When suddenly my body screamed in anguished cries...

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

(poem 6, The Villanelle, Balladeer's class)

As Chopin weaves his lustrous spell,
I choose to roll the cosmic dice,
While I resign my dreams to sell.

I realize now why woe befell,
(Such naked greed will not suffice),
As Chopin weaves his lustrous spell.

Cathedral’s distant ringing bell,
Returns my inner fire and ice,
While I resign my dreams to sell.

Emotions shed, a storm to quell,
An unexpected slave to vice,
As Chopin weaves his lustrous spell.

Why did I seek the fires of hell?
Your conquered powers won’t entice,
While I resign my dreams to sell.

Your kisses cheap, no place to dwell,
Denied their once exotic spice,
As Chopin weaves his lustrous spell,
While I resign my dreams to sell.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

(Balladeer's class, Terzanelle)

As anger slowly suffers, grief withdraws.
Though mending, Peace may not reclaim its throne.
This soul is still harassed by rage’s jaws.

The loss and tears allow this wrath a home.
No timeline can exist for such a fire.
Though mending, Peace may not reclaim its throne.

Such power lies behind this force of ire,
And still, I must move forward to survive.
No timeline can exist for such a fire.

The bitter pain reminds me I’m alive.
A fierce and tender longing starts to rise,
And still I must move forward to survive.

The self I show is simply in disguise.
I try to live each day as though not crushed.
A fierce and tender longing starts to rise.

Recovery takes time and won’t be rushed.
As anger slowly suffers, grief withdraws.
I try to live each day as though not crushed;
This soul is still harassed by rage’s jaws.

The Fuel of Life



We are the children of an endless flight
we are just passing through this Earthen stay
we are slow-learning to control our light.


It's all so new, we still don't hold it right
the mental lasers on our foreheads say
we are the children on an endless flight


with cores of energy electro-bright
with covers changing moods from day to day.
We are slow-learning to control our light


to guide us through the darkest, selfish night
to share in all of life's creative play.
We are the children on an endless flight


without inheritance of wrongful bite
we had to learn what foods are "A ok"
we are slow-learning to control our light.


We don't plant cooked seeds, begging grow, with might
and we grow dark from dead foods, though we pray
we are the children on an endless flight
we are slow-learning to control our light.

RE: Me Terzanelle - You Game??


The Terzanelle is a poetry type which is a combination of the villanelle and the
terza rima forms. It is a 19-line poem consisting of five interlocking triplets/tercets
plus a concluding quatrain in which the first and third lines of the first triplet appear
as refrains. The middle line of each triplet is repeated, reappearing as the last line
of the succeeding triplet with the exception of the center line of the next-to-the-last
stanza which appears in the quatrain. The rhyme and refrain scheme for the triplets
is as follows:


The race to Rosie's Heart
_____________________



They came from down the road of sunset bend
the dust was moving faster than their car
it looked to be a race that now, would end

they stopped in front of Cloie's Dine 'n Bar
and dragged the day inside at Rosie's booth
the dust was moving faster than their car

and covered hands and faces, not aloof
like Mason, when his crew came into town
and dragged the day inside at Rosie's booth

and Cookie had to make them quiet down
as newbies sang of Hollywood and Wine
like Mason, when his crew came into town

with hoots and howls of how she looked so fine
and vied to win her heart, she always sighed
as newbies sang of Hollywood and Wine

while highway cops were pulling up outside
they came from down the road of sunset bend
a robbery, a get-away, one died
it looked to be a race that now, would end.

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
