Sacrificial Gift (Meaning of Christmas)

Three men wise from the east, pilgrims, on camel-backs journeyed - “A cold coming they had of it”, to Bethlehem, through snowy peaks, To witness the birthing of Christ, and of their new faith On way to the land of their Nativity they pass “three trees on a low sky”, Presage of the three crosses on...

Literally Gruesome!

Engrossed as I was,deep in my flippant cacophony Turning in or turning out images, nary a funny Busy braining my wit stormy, while sculpting elite Thoughts of (untold) sketchy Hellenic delight Descending the flight of stairs was my sweetie, Her name, I must tell you sagacious readers, is Ruthie...

Inclined to drown for a crown

My heart is stone-dead, parched up dry No song, no rhythm, no sorrow, makes me cry Be thou me; engulf me with thy showers of grace O Noble one, take away all my cloggings - they trace, They chase, they haunt, beyond all my favorite haunts – To where I thought I could elope from all my flighty wants...

Unopened Door

Rain came in torrents with the night darkening My day’s work done and the last guest gone I locked the door. Knock, knock! Who can be there? Weary and trodden, I ignored peeping through the door None can at this ungodly hour be my guest “Come”, said I, “lay to your rest”. It’s just the doors, or... Sign in to see full entry.

Man and his wish

A woodcutter, all his life cut wood and weeds In the jungles. With a daily load on his head Walked he to the market to sell his deeds Made some money and ate his food Never did he from his task, deflect or waver Nor ever did think life was not wholly good. Not so today; now old and feeble Try as he... Sign in to see full entry.

Making our latent potential patent

Sam desired of me to write a critique of my own poem, “ Steps in Redemption ”. She observes, “I think it would be outstanding if you took this poem and objectively critique as though you had not written it.

Steps in Redemption?

I have heard, heard from quarters deep Love is the glue that holds, binds, unites the universe Why is it then that nectarine waters in me not seep? Is it because I do not love myself? This verse, This question I surmise is in season In spite of all my bawdy internal treason I do realize I have not... Sign in to see full entry.

A Sonnet on Mixed-up gropings

I know not what strange affliction assails me today Somehow it tells me Aba, you’ve gone too far Hold, hold, why don’t you realize it’s not your day Conscerate all to Lord and spare the unnecessary spar You indulge in, in your rationality walks of daily life All are nothing but mere exercises in...

Coleridge’s imaginative use of ballad style

Her lips were red, her looks were free, Her locks were yellow as gold: Her skin was as white as leprosy … We see in the above lines of “ The Ancient Mariner” the medieval influence of the supernatural at work in the skeletal ship - the dicing demons on the deck evoking a fearful nightmare of...
