MANDRAKES house by the fire...for all to sharePage 74 of 106    (66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 106)
Ummmmmmmm! Say what????

I think my eyes just went in different directions, all at the same time!
Actually, it is against the rules....but we'll let that one slide and just hope!! If ya know what I mean!!

Springs final edict
formal...formality,
dressed in papal scrolls,
calligraphic holograms
of blue lagoons,
trapped transparencies
burning in scriptures
of celluloid,
white noise
predelections,
post armaggedon
warriors
wrapped in desert garb,
the world...the new Rome

was burning in the
background,
creation,
a mutation,
of what use
to be!

Mandrakes, am I waking up in Rome? Am I.... um... Alice in Wonderland?

Or Dorothy? What would you say?

Anyways, Mandrake and BestKept Secret, you both KNOW you are powershooters of poetry.

Wow. I will never be able to shake the image of the Evergreen Tree BKS, in that poem about all the different ways of looking at something.

I have been around Evergreens all my life, and for the life of me, I wish I could have written just one poem I liked about an Evergreen... I think you wrote the Perfect One ;)

now Mandrake :)

Your beautiful poetry flows so effortlessly with imagery and rhythem, I am Amazed at the sweetly beautiful spirit sinking and flowing and shining and shimmering through your words at times.

You move me with the sheer abundance of

BEAUTY.

Thank you for sharing with us all All your breathtakingly beautiful posts. ;) sincerely Angel (lol)

I love your poetry mandrake. You are so eloquent!

I wrote this one today :)

The Stars

Like diamonds dancing in the sky
No rhyme or reason as to why
Their splendor is surpassed by none
Oh how i love each and every one
I stare up at them at night
As i lay basking in the moonlight
A treasure left for all to see
I watch and embrace their beauty
How gloriously they do shine
And feel a passion in this heart of mine.

Thank you all for your wonderful words...BKS, Angel, and Shadw.

Where oft I lay
as if a dream,
next to skin
of peach and cream,
soft as whispers
featherd kiss,
savoured moments
passions bliss,
that as you sleep
I watch and smile,
please dear dream,
just stay a while.

your shadow
slid from my bed this morning
Willow-the-wisp
faintly your touch lingers.

At times life may get you down
But I don't want to ever see you frown

So when you're feeling blue
Just remember these words I'm saying to you

Have faith in yourself because there's someone who cares
Even when life doesn't seem fair

So put on a smile and think of something nice
And please don't make me say this twice

Because I see someone who's worthwhile
And I'm someone who likes to see you smile

So please try to never be down
And don't you dare frown

Subterrainian cultures breed,
mixed mutations mirrored greed,
below the surface, underground,
the last vestige of life is found.

Armaggedon warriors hold,
genetic blood that now runs cold,
among the ruins of planet earth,
not a single...human birth!

bringing thios one home from "entwined"

I am the Breeze

I placed my hand
into the wind,
selecting a strand
of the finest breeze,
and there, placed my love
to gently flow,
carrying my heart
back to thee,
that you might feel it's touch
of unforgotten moments,
as the breeze kisses your cheek,
remember...
it is me!

^again, written so beautifully, manny....touches the heart very deeply...
i can imagine it playing a chord in everyone's memory :)
and the one above it is very powerful!



ode to love....

soul mates
souls mate
part
depart
still in heart
soul knows
where each go
to always unfold
and find each other so
each can redeem again
the love they know so well
divine love with no hell...just heaven
eternal and sacred connection as spoken
at hebrew weddings and my favorite translation...
"I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine"


written originally on 'old souls' a little while ago.....

Politicians and Preachers

It's time for revolution,
last chance for a solution
to a planet of pollution,

.....where......

The politics and preachers,
retraining all the teachers,
selling apathy in bleachers

.........to...........

the hungry and the poor,
who are lined up at the door,
as the chant goes up for war!

.......sending.........

all our youth to battle,
just like a herd of cattle,
but you never hear the rattle

.........of.........

the tills that are exploding,
while the guns keep on reloading
the body count foreboding,

........still..........

they sell you on their vision
with short and long division,
avoiding the collision

........with..........

the voice of revolution,
from the warriors retribution
who deal the last solution

.........as..........

politicians and the preachers
stand trial in the bleachers,
for crimes against the teachers,
and the hungry and the poor!

.........Revolution!.............

^^^ taking a sigh and a ponder...deeply insightful manly....



Counting down till 50
Years have compressed
into a minute thought
...and children grown
...and a life changed
but content somehow
Entered in this phase;
enlightened sureness
not waiting but in-wait
A single drop of glee
...of anticipation
welcomes waning years
bowing to those trailing
in their youngness,
seemingly grown slowly
as once I lingered...
till they reach their day
of the compressed minute
and their reflections,
while I glow in their fruits
I envision a grandchild
taking my hand, leading
as I break this new cocoon
and begin
again...

Ahhhh yes! Someone has a birthday coming soon!^^^^^

and what might that day be? March or early April?

Grandkids are something very special.
I know how precious they are, I have two,
one with eyes of brown and green
the other with eyes of blue.

Only two stood out for me,
sweet sixteen and twenty one,
but every year I celebrate
just to have some fun.

reflections are a daily thing,
to keep myself aware,
the private thoughts and feelings
of those for whom I care.

Your time is coming soon enough
you'll be mom and nanny too
and don't forget the babysitter,
and diapers full of POOH!

Bathed in her warm steel light
i walked to my window
on that night
senseless grin.

Alone
wishing that we
could become as one
senseless grin.

Hurt, bite and tear
it did indeed at me
stare
senseless grin.

Hopes and wishes
clashed to the
rugged shore
senseless grin.

Naked and alone
letting her kiss me,
after you were gone
senseless grin.

Touch of steel
yet warm and inviting
my body ached
senseless grin.

Looked at you
inspiring, with longing
my heart ached
senseless grin.

Warrior, amazon
naked I stood
letting you kiss me
senseless grin.

No more fight
no more games
you win...
with your senseless useless grin.

chirping louder today
magpies must know it's spring

gray sky cries earth the sweetest
(for the briefest of ) moments

i mowed my weeds
(in the front at least)
will save the back 'til tomorrow

but
for now
i knock on your door
welcoming
your warm embrace

Hiya Rose...always nice to see you drop off a write. Thanks sweety.

Brought home from Old Souls.

As if, by some form
of logical logic,
one can define the parameters
of semantic intelligence,
by wiping it off the bed,
then compare your swabs
to a random moment,
perhaps my five seconds of fame
will be in science,
rather than ....passion!
