抒情詩 (lyrical poem)

41

i

We are asking for books which
Legends are made of, poems that are
Flowers at the bottom blue of lyricism
We felt the need for ritual acts
That respected the Volumes of the Earth
My time is precious, so is yours:

ii

Our nods of recognition were
The last living parts of poetry between
Our souls which would vanish
To other Planets, when we died
We are asking for books which
Dreams can dive into, poems that are

iii

After all, objects that have been loved
And lived fully, maybe the object of many loves
To have greatly admired stains of
Where words once lay, the honors
Of so much feeling like fragrance

iv

You will hold the stem, I will
Know the rose passing between humans
And the child that squeezes the fence
At the end of the story, that was enough
To make romantic poetry Immortal.

  1. …i am pondering your last two poems as they come out of the same streaming…seems to me these two demand a golden child, a denounent making a trio – thesis, antithesis=synthesis…perhaps answer your questions with deeper questioning?…words & books only seem to stop time while in fact they merely diminish our awareness by expanding the horizon of consciousness…for example, wine is the metaphor for exploring memories in my canticle to wine trio, the vines the thread or circle of mystery that completes the cycle of life/love renewing itself…also, Curious abt your names? and i encourage you to invest yourself deeper in your readings as such is the fertilizer of your own poetic imagination, i.e., leave footprints in the sand – comments – rather than whispers in the fickle wind – mere likes! ^^~~~~
