Hi Everyone,

Only recently discovered the SES Forums, and am so glad to share in the Poetry one!

For me, poetry packages... feelings, aspirations, experience, whatever... in words that sing... Hoping to distil the semblance of the moment of writing into a form that can preserve it, to revisit later, or to share...

I have been ‘packaging’ bits of my life this way, for about 60 years. These two were written decades apart, while considering (my) ‘Life’...



Soul-Dark…

Naked I came into the chill winds of this world
And naked will I go.
Empty I came of all but life and hunger for life,
Imprinted with countless traits inherited,
And hazy promises.
I shall not leave life
As I came.
Potential denied and disregarded,
Will leave scars,
Fulfilment some faint bloom,
And the long weary struggle
Against apathy, impotence
And unrelenting opposition
Twist me
As the salt winds twist
Lone thorns.


...Soul Bright, Still Singing

A spark I came,
Became at times a flame,
And smoulder still
With passion for life’s beauty,
And for justice... Only an ember now,
Still capable of warmth and some faint
Glimmer against the dark...
Words sing me still,
And always, always will!

(I hope... though mental powers deteriorate... V.)
