  1. What's new in this club
  2. the 2 Posey poems shared here strike a chord in my soul and heart. reminds me so much of the Native American music i listen to. thanks for the discovery.
  3. This poem is both simple and complex. It's wonderful, I don't think it's something I'd tire of. Beautiful.
  4. there is much peace in it.. i like it very much.. i think it will be read often...
  5. But there is a great, comforting spirituality I think to this vision.
  6. While a darker mood in it, it’s peaceful and welcoming to the notion. He was certainly eloquent with words. This one is lovely.
  7. I like this one: A vision of rest alexander posey Some day this quest Shall cease; Some day, For aye, This heart shall rest In peace. Sometimes—ofttimes—I almost feel The calm upon my senses steal, So soft, and all but hear The dead leaves rustle near And sign to be At rest with me. Though I behold The ashen branches tossing to and fro, Somehow I only vaguely know The wind is rude and cold. it appeals to my darker side
  8. He was so young when he passed.. that's such a shame.. i've read of few of his poems.. the one to his wife is lovely.
  9. There are more using this remarkable two stanza structure. I'll find a link. https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poems/123491
  10. What a marvelous find. Is there more?
  11. Posey as a teenager, in the 1880s
  12. Hello all! I stumbled upon a Native American poet. His work speaks forcefully about the conditions he bore witness to in his times. Here's an awesome poem by him. On Viewing the Skull and Bones of a Wolf Alexander Posey How savage, fierce and grim! His bones are bleached and white. But what is death to him? He grins as if to bite. He mocks the fate That bade '‘Begone.'' There’s fierceness stamped In ev’ry bone. Let silence settle from the midnight sky— Such silence as you’ve broken with your cry; The bleak wind howl, unto the ut’most verge Of this mighty waste, thy fitting dirge.
  13. Thanks, Emi. From what I can remember of the dream, I was in line to board a flight. I had my roller bag ready, and everything seemed fine. Then a staff person threw up a barrier, and said "Go with him." Another staff member led the way, and I and the people waiting behind me followed this guy up some steps, where we were put in another waiting maze. The horrible thing is, although the line moved fairly fast, we kept passing the starting point over and over, making an unbroken circle From there it just got awful, because I started to doubt if I even had a boarding pass. *shrieks* I'm glad I woke up then.
  14. Nightmares are something that lash out the inner fears and build a constructive screenplay to be performed by oneself in their mind. Your poem gives chill, as one can interpret it to their fears and can find a vivid imagination set in front of their eyes. Very haunting lines these are. I totally fallen into them. Great combination of words you have written here my friend.
  15. This gives me pause right now. Taking international flight this summer. First since going blind 12 years ago. I get anxious thinking about that hell.
  16. as i really dislike flying, and everything to do with it this is spot on!
  17. I can relate to this completely. Thank you.
  18. I had a bad dream last night, so I present this Traveler's Haiku (affix tongue firmly in cheek before reading ) Hell might simply be an endless nightmare, feeling stuck in an airport.
  19. Fresh off the oven: https://www.gayauthors.org/story/asamvav111/euphoria-and-other-poems/11
  20. I know it's a bit early, but it seems like there are quite a few new poets on site. So I thought I'd post a shout-out for National Poetry Writing Month, which starts April 1st. The goal for NaPoWriMo is to write 30 poems in 30 days. There's no structure as to how to accomplish that goal, although most writers strive for one per day. It's a great time to go through AC's poetry prompts. I've been stockpiling a few prompts of my own, which I will post here. I also receive daily prompts via email from a lady who has done this for years. If anyone is interested in receiving these prompts, please PM me your email address and I will either forward them to you or send her your email so you can receive them directly; it's entirely up to you. Most people post their NaPoWriMo poems in a weekly "chapter", although some people prefer to post daily. To get an idea of how past participants have done it, check out my own "April Musings", Parker Owens "Parker's NaPoWriMo 2017", or Aditus' "Going to the Movies". Participating in NaPoWriMo is a lot of fun. I hope to see a lot of participants in April!
  21. It was funny, because he was taking impressions. The pink claylike substance needs several mins to firm up, so once that thing is in my mouth, he starts talking books, and I'm like - damn - you know your timing if you want to keep my mouth closed
  22. But what a pity you couldn't discuss it while undergoing dental work. As long as he didn't make an emphatic point with one of his pointy tools...
  23. I would think Shelley's point is that the creator is incapable of loving his creation once it turns unbeautiful. To think of parenthood along those line, that is, qualified on who is asking for love, is monstrous. Shelley's relating this to a seemingly absent God in the daily suffering of humanity is what guarantees her book immortality.
