    Worldkeeping Queries

    How do you worldkeep Lord?
    Do you assign a Monday for this continent
    A Tuesday for the other and so on
    Until the nth continent matches the nth time?
    Do you schedule the winds to dust the mountains,
    Wake the trees at dawn, lull nocturnals to sleep before noon?

    Do you command the waters fast deliveries of nuts,
    Wanted by some squirrels wanting in winter in the woods?
    Do you order fire to cause-effect changes on lands
    That haven't produced reports, your directions procrastinated
    Of homework from last year's storms?

    Do you tell Earth to be still so
    You could adjust its tilt to the proper
    Angle to fix revolutions in our solicitude?
    That as we cling to our preoccupations
    We wake suddenly in the oddest hour
    Remembering your admonitions
    Of long ago, true now for even more.

    I guess that either you
    A word tto stop or start, or let out a sigh
    And all gets done my Lord.

    Moving On

    ...If only to forget, one does not feel...
    ...I tell you, I would have forgotten a long time ago...
    ...For I have felt no pain, no bitterness, no sorrow...
    ...In this place where emotions abound...
    ...I am safe within my walls that protect and shield me...
    ...I walk alone unscathed.

    Hi Poets Par Excellence Galore and appreciators alike, thanks for the chance to post some poems. All the poems I've posted are copyrighted by ACEA Publishing. Here's the last one I'm lifting from the c2006 edition, dedicated to the children in places torn by wars.

    Children of War
    The Dying of Seeds in War-Torn Places

    From off the springs of
    War, came the brave,
    They have slept with
    Death and have seen
    The true colors of sunset.
    They make us see the
    Fortitude we have,
    The wishes swinging
    Around our fingertips.
    We could wish to
    Live long enough
    To see who they become
    And what purposes they might find.
    For now we can touch their tears
    See with them the blurs
    Of visions for what may not become.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share dreams, feelings, hopes, prayers.

    Seeker of truth
    Follow no path
    All paths lead where
    Truth is here

    To keep your marriage brimming
    With love in the loving cup
    Whenever you're wrong, admit it
    Whenever you're right, shut up

    By: E.E. Cummings and Ogden Nash

    Departure

    When the end truly comes, that great day so longed for
    It comes with no great fuss, no headlines
    No great salute, no ringing tone
    To hold this one soul into "What will be!"
    No choir of angels
    No trumpet call
    Nothing new
    Papers sold
    Babies born
    People die!

    Life coninues.............
    Bins are collected
    Spots are squeezed
    Teeth brushed
    Toilet flushed
    Taxes rise
    And somewhere
    In the heart of that
    I leave............
    ;-))))))

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    as you all know I am more that "straight and hard into the face"guy and for sure not able to write great poems like you all provide here.

    I appreciate each single one and each single day I log in it is my first read of the "new posts". Thanks for that...

    Keep them coming

    Rhoody

    good reputation for all of you added already

    My "Awakening" is back to where it belongs

    Hi Rhoody, thanks for praising the "poets" :smile: and for reading our posts for the first time. It really mean something to us. We appreciate you more.



    Awakening

    Realizing, I'm about to embark
    Into a new world of uncertainty
    Beckonning, I am bound to adhere
    To what life has to offer
    The inevitable circumstances beyond our control
    Is absolutely unpredictable to predict
    But when life crumbles
    One must be fully awaked.
