A Shiny Lament

Post by gordy » Fri May 16, 2008 3:04 am

A Shiny Lament


My harp hangs in the weeping willows
my hung head has no comforting pillows
my tears join in the ever slow flow
of my personal babylon stream

Vultures circle above me so slow
I'm hoping maybe that soon You'll show
the answers or maybe somehow I"ll know
which questions I should deem

Buried, blocked and so very bound
by encrypting rocks that are all around
encircling only to confuse and confound
my garden view and my dream

But my rainy lament, when fully released
loosed free a sense of sunlit peace
in sunshine my circumstances may fail to cease
Yet in the Light nothing's as bad as it seemed

This is really good Gordy! Nice to see you experimenting with meter, and all that other rhyming stuff. :cheers:

I thought I had commented on this one before. Glad I wasn't imagining it. Thought I was in the early stages of Alzheimers. :cheers:

I enjoyed it Gordy, as usual. (Hmm...I need to remember to read more of your stuff. )

I like the last two line, your comparison of/distinguishing between sunshine and the Light.

:bow:
