“He breathed upon dead bodies and brought them to life. Nor sequent centuries could hit Orbit and sum of Shakespeare’s wit.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Time being first
Eternity resists
Happens each moment
When words leave our lips

Saint Ides to gods
Linguistic music
Pour ’cause some miss
Feelings still losing

To be and see
The urgency
Syllabic wars
Fool, me
Learning, Life
In debt I write

Love what you say
Forever confusing
Humanity displayed
Most tragic & amusing

Care for a reading?

As a result of last week’s rally, I acknowledge the flowers (awards) I received on this fine Bloomsday. Nice. As the title of my post indicates, this was my entry for this week’s poetry rally. Jingle, thanks for including me. I accept the above awards and in turn nominate… trisha!
Enjoy the Rally!
