Metaphor Falls (for Poetry Rally)

Posted in Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2010 by dustus

Life will be better
Accepting it all
Splash screen dreams
Metaphor falls

What may exist?
Blindfolding hints
Dying to live. Well,
That wasn’t it…

Cannot think after
Brief disbelief
I swear my conceit
Delay all perceived…
Godspeed to taking leave

Clear blue sky in which
Pillow clouds lie
Water curtains fly
Mist veiling light

90 degrees, aimless and peeved
Hard to rest these pacing feet
Faith wore pride in cut-off sleeves
Journey being felt indeed

Can never say goodbye in time
Frozen sprays of moisture shine
Soothing like the moment sigh
Glimmer boring tears from eyes
Positive drawing, blood felt wine
Exuberant wishing
Missing
Fine

Thanks for including me in this rally!

My nominee(s) for said rally are Lord Emmanuel and wordwand. They’re both fantastic. I just read 2 poems by them, respectively, that floored me:
“How Long” by Lord Emmanuel

“End of Spring” by wordwand

Cheers Jingle, Em, and wordwand

Upon a pedestal that word belongs
If not felt strong, then my heart speaks wrong

Love’s fine letters
O slants off
This museum frame
Rare honor embossed

Deepest blush of lacquer red
See through to the sky
What shall last
Past our death

The above poem was my entry for the Thursday Poetry Rally. Many thanks to the esteemed Jingle for all the tireless coordinating she does.

About the awards:
These last couple of months I have been thinking to myself, “Self, I wish I could buy a new car.” Well, not only did I get one. Count ’em. 1…2…3… shiny new automobiles! Awesome. I always knew blogging would pay off… Seriously though, these peer awards are bestowed based upon votes in the categories of Short Stories, Art/Painting, and Humor—which is perfect because I tend to think of myself as a writer, artist, and occasionally funny.

Thank you for reading my work. I love blogging. Appreciate all who visit, comment, and encourage. That being said, my nominee for this rally is a tie between Moondustwriter and slpmartin. I decided this based on the fact that they have both been taking successful artistic risks in their respective writings. Check out their work. Congrats to them both!

Thinking Remains

To be no sudden whim
Thinking remains
Truth unleveled
Form explains

Here in now
Without tomorrow
Whispers prove
Dejection hollow

Man, this life
Rewind and save
Search for proof
What’s not a game?
