The Path #27 Poem a Day

4 posts in this topic

The Path

 

Discordant storms erupt. The path goes dark

while whipping wind and smashing rain complain

and push the day to night, the blackness stark.

 

The force of creation collects its cost

and all the universe joins the cyclical flow

while plunged in gloom where rants an unseen show.

The earth is purged, the putrid air is washed.

 

From recalled shadows cast above and below

disjointed thoughts intrude and wander lost.

Perception stumbles, blinded, spun and tossed

and latent dreams turn labored, gray and low.

 

In darkness chaos tricks the shaded brain

that strains to see the dawn of nature’s spark

illuminate the straightened path's domain.

Wow Judi Wow. I love the almost biblical tone of this. The power and the grandeur! It hits and works end to end... I'll return later- But I really enjoyed this!

Excellent, but I most especially loved the last stanza. Very nice. I admire your 'stick-to-it-iveness'. I don't know, maybe next year. You are so close, now.

Thanks DC I wasn't sure anyone would get it.

 

 

 

Hi Tammi, Thanks, some of the daily poems I work on more than others. This one I worked on for a few days so I put up some less complicated poems for some of those days. I don't know about this poem a day thing. I committed so I am going to finish but writing a poem a day results in some poems I would not post otherwise. And I feel like I have been flooding the board and some of my poems aren't even being read or commented on. Which I get, sometimes it is just as hard to read and comment as to write a poem. So thanks for the response.
