Adieu

Adieu(Kim Oliver and Len Gesinski)

 

 

Transfixed

by the remainder

of your golden rays.

 

One last reach….to glory

through the trees,

heaven to my gaze even as you continue to fade

ever westward.

 

The clouds dance with you,

creating art that is unsurpassed

by human hands.

 

I am awed by your splendor

as a chill a chill caresses the skin

so recently kissed

by you.

 

Birdlike shadows

quickly cross this majestic sky,

their cue to roost

if only for a few precious moments.

 

Second by second

you continue to fall,

until our shadows

are no more.

 

Yet, I remain transfixed

by just a hint

of your magnificence.

 

No simple humbling

                  My eyes lower…

                       My voice quiet…

 

This moment

                      frozen

 

No words are necessary

 

……transcendence.

A

white feather

drifting in the summer breeze

as

she

dreamt

of angels

Love letter

she is betrayed,

by only

cold winds howling

winter not quite through just yet

wind whistles

outside the window

my cat sings in hebrew 

lost somewhere

in these

sunday afternoon

dreams

a sparrow chirps from the telephone line

farmlands

once dominated

these places

now only

the blight of strip malls

to replace

the cornstalks

so much for progress….

we trade looks

a morning meeting

while busy

chasing tomorrow’s dreams

bound

to this reality

Hope

Posted in Chant Poem with tags on June 8, 2015 by lengesinski

Hope(Chant Poem)

 

With only hope to pierce this darkness

 

out of places, out of time…..to run away

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

fight or flight, with backs up against the wall

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

lone dissenting voices, lost in a vacuum

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

a battle against indifference, ignorance, hate, and envy

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

words, thoughts, and philosophies

with only hope to pierce the darkness

 

an impassioned plea, to open ears and minds

with only hope to pierce the darkness
