Raring to Fly by BeestOBurden Raring to Fly :iconbeestoburden:BeestOBurden 6 0
Literature
Empty Page
I’m looking at an empty page …
What is it that I want to say …
Something no one’s ever said before,
Or the same thing
Stated in a different way?
I think about the loved and lost,
The days of hunger, nights of cold,
The light of spring in a young one’s heart,
The waning summer,
And a lover’s hold.

Literature
Empty Pages
Empty pages beckon to me
Write or draw but fill the blank
Perhaps the empty page expresses
Thoughts or feelings I don't rank
Bored am I to sit here thinking
Thoughts from someone else's mind
Words don't move me as they used to
Yet, it's words I try to find

Literature
The Enigmatic Dance
The world circles the stage
Like a roll-n-roll singer
And spins in place
Like a ballerina on her toes,
Before it shares the next refrain.
Is it really a new year?
Is it not just another day, another hour?
Could it be a new century
Or a new millennium?
For who knows where time really began?
Perhaps it never did … perhaps it hasn’t yet.
Circle the stage, and spin in place,
And share the next refrain.

the fire
Inferno a-paced
Leaving homes and lives erased
And a world of waste

Literature
First Impressions
The suspicions
We have of others
Most often arise
From what we know
Of ourselves,
And the negative
Perceptions
We might hold
Of the world
Are too often only
The emotional
Backlash of the
Personal individual
Experience.

Red Dragonfly by BeestOBurden Red Dragonfly :iconbeestoburden:BeestOBurden 10 8
Literature
The Quiet Sensation
There is a moment
Of light that is clear and bright,
And soft and warm,
That may be experienced
From time to time –
When only sensation exists …
No thought, no emotion, no query
Of what was or what will be,
Nor how or why.
This moment
May be given,
Born of nothingness,
And altogether unexpected;
Or it may be quested after,
Evoked with impassivity,
And awaited.

Literature
The Lesser Of
If you raise your voice or shake your fist,
You may be seen as being seditious;
If you hide your eyes and mute the gist,
You might be deemed as seeming suspicious.
Change your mind,
And you’re capricious;
Be opined,
And you’re malicious.
Better just to eat a cookie,
They are really quite delicious.

Hi, brothers and sisters. For those who may have noticed, yes, I was absent for a while. My computer crashed.
It's amazing how much stuff piles up in a couple of weeks ... not just here, but on all my accounts. And it's hard to get back into the swing of things. I give my humble thanks for all the 'saves' and llamas while I've been away ... sincere blessings to all.
Procedamus in pace.

Empty Page

I wrote this little poem 18 years before I wrote the previous one, called ‘Empty Pages’. The other was written almost out of boredom, whereas, this one actually and intentionally was written in contemplation of where the empty page might take me.

The Longest Vine
Alas, I had only a lead pencil when my mind and hands became restless. It was later that I found two ball-point pens, a blue and a red.

Thank you, deviant female! Love the name!
It is an eclectic collection. I'm running out of drawings to show; it's something I got into back in the 80s. As an artist, I mostly write; I share the shorter poems here that my publishing site doesn't take for lack of words.
I still counsel people when they need me ... on Facebook and through my web address. And I do what I can for the animals that suffer at the hands of mankind.
I'm 'watching' you now.
