Mirthless Muse -poem

 

The flowers move as you sway

the wind catches you to stay

The bees trace your track

trying to catch you back

 

Your lovely that’s what they say

your smile brightens their day

Your scent makes them shiver

as you walk down and ponder

One day the flowers move no more
the wind stood still colder

 

The bees loses your track

they don’t want you back

You were sad and lonely

your smile makes their day cloudy
Your scent makes them grieve

as you sat in deep bereave

Maybe the gods cursed you today

no, a hesitant bee say

Maybe  someone works its way

to make you forlorn lady

fantasy

I am reposting an old poem. This was written and published here at WP on my first month of blogging many years ago.
When i saw the photo prompt of Helene of Willow Poetry,  i knew this one fits in.
What do you See? Feb/26/2019

This is likewise in honor of Gina’s recent post https://alifelesslivedblog.wordpress.com/2019/02/24/chaos-to-community-reflections/
It’s not easy to live a challenging life and face the world with a smile. It takes a lot of courage. Gina on her post emphasized the beauty of keeping your composure with a smile amidst chaos. And how many of us can do that?

We’ve heard many times the phrase “there’s always a rainbow after the rain”; i say why wait for the rainbow when you can learn to love and enjoy the blessings brought about by the rain? Even if the rain turns out to be a storm, i believe, that storm or any storm for that matter will bring a lot of good than bad to us.

P.S.

Can you smile beautifully when your heart is in chaos? Or can you still see the good even in the worst situation?

Paulo Coelho -free verse

Paulo Coelho is one of my favorite contemporary authors. His works have influenced me in so many ways and his stories have inspired me as well. I am reposting one of my earliest published poem here in WordPress which i am sure many of my current readers have not read yet.

This is in response to V.J.’s weekly challenge to create a post about a story which has inspired you.

To join the fun hop in to her site at onewomansquest.org
Santiago was a young boy

in 1988 you created him in Alchemist.

i was in my ponytails and pigtails,

in 1988 a little girl so clueless.

twenty years after,

i met Santiago by dinner

he said when you want something

all the universe conspires in helping

Along came Brida

in 1990 you made

a beautiful gypsy girl

whose quest for knowledge is amazing.

i was a growing to be like her

in 1990 a high school teenage girl

she said seek for the truth

never be scared for what have been sought

You ventured to the Mojave desert

in 1992 to find the Valkyries who assert

that finding your guardian angel

you need them badly for help

1992  was the year to say

you realized trudging the desert is a dismay

I was walking through another space

like you in the dessert i race

By the river Piedra you placed

two lovers in such a maze

In 1994 you proved that love

is indeed like a flying dove

cage it and it will scream to death

but let it go and it will fly back with great faith

I was searching for the same passion

yet i let go and move on with fashion

Elijah an obedient angel in 1997

you created with pride and great sense

You proved once more that obedience

is such a value forgotten with negligence

I entered college as freshman

in an academe where there was no man

to focus on my dreams

and be like Elijah on the Fifth Mountain

In 1997 Veronica decides to die

a perfect lady who commits suicide

Confided in an asylum for a while

she sees the whole world in a different style

I was a young mother then, I tangled

caring and nurturing as I struggled

I see the world different as it used to be

with a baby at hand i disregard being me

In 2000 the Devil meets Ms. Prym

taking responsibilities and actions in rhyme

She said our conduct is a matter of control and choice

indeed as I battle with my own evil’s choice

I made things right by then

fulfilling my dreams is what i mean

Truly we battle everyday in life

between good and evil we continue to strife

Maria in 2003 was born

in Eleven Minutes you’ve shown

true love is  being with someone

without possessing no one

I was already focused and stable

with my family complete on the table

It might take eleven minutes to stop

and proclaim your live on top

The Witch of Portobello in 2006 came to being

searching for one true self in the beginning

She said opening up to the energies of the world

is one thing we should withstand and behold

I have matured and become successful

but continues to reach out to fulfill

a life of stability and contentment

lies in opening oneself and atonement

Indeed the Winner Stands Alone

in 2008 you created in tone

With the rise of the super class

born Ewa, Igor, and Hamid who falls

I was torn between work and family

choosing the latter made life lovely

As  Igor, Ewa and Hamid fell defeated

I stood triumphantly even when I’m seated

2010 came, Aleph you discovered

a point where the whole universe is contained

Hilal you met and converse

in Aleph your only universe

I have found my Aleph too

in the arms of the one who truly knew

in sickness and in health indeed

true love once the world forbid

P.S.

This is more or less a summary of all the novels and characters written and created by Paulo Coelho.

Balance- free verse

When you are complete

and feel you have that perfect

sense of harmony

no amount of distraction

nor a mighty burden

will ever topple you down

from standing on your toes

perfectly balanced

Lost Souls-poem

Underneath the sea
are souls lost
tormented
and broken

Gone are the days
when they can come home
and feel the love
of a once golden promise

Now all they can do
is lament
wail
and yearn
as one long lost
and forgotten soul.
P.S

There has been some outraged in my home country about our young mariners who have sailed across the ocean and was never seen coming home. There are a lot of tell tales about this, but whatever the story behind, one thing is for sure; someone is weeping over a lost love one, a lost brother, a lost father, a lost friend and a lost hardworking citizen.

This poem is for all of them out there. .May they find peace knowing that they are loved and will never be forgotten.

Not your Average Girl (part 2)- free verse

perfection-quote

She doesn’t don’t know how to act
but with sense of urgency

She don’t doesn’t know how to care
without thinking too much and feeling too much

She doesn’t know how to be quiet and sit still and allow her mind to settle

She is always asking, experiencing, struggling and finding meaning

She is passionate and misunderstood of being finicky rather than simply striving for excellence

She is an artist, deep, creative
And not your average girl

With every little thing you do
And with every little smile you gave

With that little thing you do
And little love you share
I am gratified
I am pleased.
