ALL FOR NOUGHT
Possessions
I have not beauty of stars,
Nor rhythm of oceans deep;
I lack the nectar of a dewy dawn,
No whistles to throttle a chime;
No salt to shed a sorrow borne,
I'm void of sunny winds,
Without a halo and absent of colour;
What jewel dazzles a rainy day?
No muse to reply in rainbows

II
Nadir
A dragon grins in skins of
Fiery wealth, stolen from souls,
Of blind sight, where opened stones,
Wide in galactic expanses, shatter
The magnitude of eons,
Waiting forever, in blank canvases,
From whose words doth jingle warbles,
To strand hairs of maidens gold,
In towers atop metrical, molds of clay

III
Bird song
Shape thee message of morning,
Holding by your quill a word,
Small and round,
Where completion folds away,
The carpet if night existed;
Fly by magicians!
They have missed the moon,
Targeted in love tantrums;
Too many robes drape them.

    Shape the message of morning,
    Holding by your quill a word,
    Small and round,"I, too, enjoyed these lines, and the entire poem. Wordsworth is a favorite and you have written well in his style.

  3. Well written Gillena. 'Possessions' is probably my favorite as some of the lines I feel like stealing for my own use!

  4. "Of blind sight, where opened stones,
    Wide in galactic expanses, shatter
    The magnitude of eons"

    So many images... such vastness... It's as if the universe is opening in front o one's eye and it continues growing and growing and growing... overtaking the senses.

    One may lack possessions but certainly is not lack of talents which is shown in your writings Gillena!
