Blogger Highlight: The Poetry Man 2

This is the second choice I picked on The Poetry Man. I just could not pick between the two. So I just had to do both.


Sour Breeze by ThePoetryMan

The world’s tending to its headstones
Amid the scorching noise of collapse
Rasping at the rustling of brittle grass
Tears instead of rain lamenting dryly
At the door of the world’s mausoleums.
No sigh of relief from nature’s swoon

As I sit outside, eager, longing for a breeze.
Far-away lands tend to their grumbling wound
And the silhouette of a naked woman
Lances the boil through,
Yet young men with fire in their belly
Lie dormant, unmoved.
Now a young Adonis waltzes past,
Tapping on the sacred ground
Yet Aphrodite cannot stir the women,
Hearts still wafting, to writhe in dance,
The children with the blazing rasp of hope
Lay static `neath the glum ground.

As I write these words, this ode,
Feeling the weight of things I cannot move,
The sour breeze easily bends the trees
Or the trees curve the wind,
Lurching forward to taste.
I can only write of hope,
Yearning for the redbird freshly calling
Instead of the raven’s warble low.
I cannot really know,
Just that the frail grass `neath my feet
Is being dampened by my ache.

  3. Pamela,

    ThePoetryMan is something else isn’t he. When you get back home, after you rocover, you need to look at some of his other work. I also have a submission from Dizzy Dezzi to get ready.
