allegory, death, dream, flying, freedom, insect,
In solitude I dream tonight
And watch a moth in fevered flight.
It’s drawn toward my quaint porch light
And flies consumed with all its might.
Through open window I can see
Its desperation shared with me;
How freedom in this world is light—
And we as souls are drawn to fight.
Though freedom’s light may cause our death,
It’s worth the risk with every breath.
I understand the moth’s sad plight
When drawn to the glorious light.
Though it knows not of human trust,
It buzzes on because it must!

allegory, death, emotions,
Through the shallows,
Through the depths,
The muck and the mire,
With trembling limbs
I succor the dying,
Strip the layers naked...
A conceit of consciousness
In psychic awareness,
I repute the repudiated
Caught in a self made web
Of hubris, malevolent envy.
Wrath projected...as a
Boomerang, must return.
Ashes back to ashes is
The only transformation
Derived in sustained purgatory.

allegory, death, inspirational
Big crocodiles lips
Wide hipopotomus hips....
From her paws blood drips
adventure, allegory, analogy, death, destiny, dream, philosophy,
your time is near,
be part of it.
Fall into the great ocean
your conscious way,
Nature's final notion.
let it go,
it happens so,
embrace the black.
Droplet make a tiny splash.
Whisper in your Bardo ear,
till you're no longer here,
and flesh turns to simple ash.
So sleep little droplet,
how sweet the dew.
To love it and live it
and to start anew.
allegory, death, fantasy, imagination, lovesun,
The sun set with a golden glow the day on which you I met
On that special walk in the beautiful park as the sun set
The sun set a glowing red as I walked with no threat
Amongst the trees of different hues as the sun set
The sun set slowly going down dropping, to it I'm indebt
To enjoying every minute of color as slowly the sun set
The sun set quietly didn't say a word but drew
Others to come in and watch closely as the sun set
The sun sets for you and me my handsome dear
Come close lets get all we can from life before fully the sun sets
Amaris Muriel Thomas
allegory, animal, beauty, betrayal, christian, corruption, creation, environment, grief, murder, nature, tiger, tree, tribute,
She prowls the night
with clenched jaw and pride,
nothing able to smite
her remorseless stride.
The ominous reflection of moon
shines forth from devouring eyes
of a nocturnal beauty spun on the loom
of the Creator's bid and sighs.
Grace moves her every limb
and she precedes an enraged scream
caused by ruins of a forest now grim
and held alive by all but one stream.
Her claws prophesy of vengeance
though her heart yearns for reconciliation.
Yet now there would be no leniency
for a soul's annihilation.
Now on journeys through lush valleys and ashes
she will embark
until all that remains after furious thrashes
will be the tigress' mark.
allegory, allusion, death, introspection, life, retirement, words,
So words become; the order of the day
and order of the day becomes
the soldiered meaning of all work and play,
the ever present, beating drums.
Then words become; the lure of the lie
and liars lure every son
with shadows of gold 'til they all but die,
to retire, to be, to be done.
And then, once again; the words become
the order of every day
to sleep, to awake, to be dead and done,
'til all words fly, ever away.
allegory, body, change, death, heaven, imagery, spiritual,
Marks the end of life—
Transformation now begins.
The soul exits the Earth’s plane . . .
A new journey’s underway . . .
Heaven’s the destination!

(Tanka poetic format)
allegory, death, loss, lost loveme,
Stars! Why be awake with me
Hit the bed and go to sleep
You are not enslaved by agony but free
My bleeding soul’s wounds are deep
Through my open window you peep
With your twinkling searching eyes
Your glow in my gloomy nights creep
With the grace of the fireflies
Someone gifted me sleeplessness
And rewarded me with anguish
My nights darkness and gloom dress
Like out of water fish I languish
Why be overly worried for me
A day may return my deserted sleep
Setting from the bondage my soul free
When that happens you must not weep.
Stars! I beseech go to sleep!
allegory, childhood, death, nature
Death belies the darkness summoned,
tombstone-colored is the sky,
shards of memories merely fragments,
wailing wind the sole reply.
Violent storm winds strip the tree limbs
like a poltergeist, unseen,
tawdry feeders, heavy wind chimes,
beat against the window screens.
Waiting for the glass to shatter,
like so many childhood dreams,
china teacups, rosebud patterned
in the dustpan, unredeemed.

abuse, addiction, allegory, death, funny, metaphor, water,
The river dragon of crimson streams
Swiftly swimming to bring my end
As I’m standing alone at the silent shore
The beast from this murk suddenly ascends.
Gripping my face in her flawless jaws
The teeth latched efficiently into flesh
Pulling me quickly into the depths
Dragging me into the shallow grave.
Surrounded in filth, drowning in the banks
The apex predator’s grip never relenting
All I can do is break, bleed and decompose
Hoping for some relief in the pending death.
I find some comfort in this prolonged pain,
Because I haven’t felt a thing in ages.
allegory, death of a friend, goodbye, grief, imagery, love, metaphor,
In graveyard dreams
tombstones are etched
with fading memories
Only plastic flowers
are forever—apart from
my undying love…
Farewell, mon amie...
JSLambert Mister ROBOTO
allegory, angst, death, dedication, depression, faith, forgiveness, health, introspection, life, loss, lost love, people, philosophy, recovery from..., religion, sad, socialmirror,
Looking dead at me in this smeared mirror...
a lost man
the longer I stare
this stress abuses
my conscience with a glare
a guilty reflection warns
my mind is the prison I fear
as I long to escape
from the hell I dwell in
who have I become?
what have I done right?
crossroads appear suddenly
as fog fills the mirror tonight
darkness owning the room,
prefers I suffer slow
so I proceed with speed
because it’s the only way I know
flood my life’s hard bound chapters
while this smeared mirror reflects tears
dripping from a face
which was once filled with laughter.
allegory, analogy, black african american, eulogy, imagery, inspirational, remembrance day,
Standing at The Mountain
There stood the great mountain—
A Sisyphean challenge;
A Job’s journey;
A deferred dream’s destiny;
Indeed, a Draconian feat.
But there also stood the dreaming King;
Tutored prodigy of the King of Kings;
With eyes stayed on the prize,
He smiled at death with God sent eyes.
Yes, the King is dead
But we’re looking ahead!
We are the dream’s vision;
Our children—its reality;
Jacob’s ladder rises before us;
Let’s get to climbing!
“Only the dreamer dies…”
allegory, animal, bereavement, emotions, pain,
Shopping day arrives and the shopper
has in mind
A delicacy called veal she knows she
It's in a nicely wrapped pack its contents
She'll cook it just right with some wine
But there's a sad story behind that Plastic
A baby's calf's body not long ago was on
He had cried and cried where did mama
She had never left him alone like this before
Then they led him at last down that scary
His legs were shaking and he tried hard not
He heard the cries from the animals all around
He thought he heard mama as he fell dead on
allegory, confidence, identity, integrity, passion, strength, sympathy,
With a greatness of spirit!
Never vindictive . . .
Generous and forgiving . . .
High-minded and always just!

December 22, 2018 (Tanka)
allegory, death, life, me, me,
A path appeared where I had set my gaze.
It reached from distant times beneath the sun.
To travel it took all one’s earthly days,
and soon, I knew, my trek would be begun.
The Tidings Wind was echoing through trees -
those stalwart prophets fixed along the path.
Humanity was sounding in the breeze
their mingled cries of grief and joy and wrath.
Though barely could I grasp the nature of
the journey I would take, I felt the thrill
of leaving home, for Father told me love
would greet me there below with my free will.
I’d stumble, but I trusted Him to place
His signs to guide me back by light of Grace.
adventure, allegory, death, education, fear, mystery, words, fire, fire,
Through the fields of grace,
Set fire to the face
Run away, set the pace
Live with your mind buried in the cries
So wrapped up in your warped lies
Nothing lives anymore; tomorrow everything dies
Slam the door and whisper their fate
Lie some more and open the gate,
The gateway to the hell you promised in frosted words of glorious hate
Lie to them, the ignorant FOOLS!
As they waste away...those useless tools
Slanderous words of false glory
They fail to see the underlying gory-
Deaths covered to hide the shame
That they lied to bring riches and fame
So through the fields of grace,
Set fire to the face
run away....and set, the pace
allegory, death, heaven, imagery, metaphor, spiritual, symbolism,
Release comes with death.
The mortal host is no more.
A faint and sad cackle is heard,
As all illusions come to an end.
The bare body lies in a stiff repose.
What once was, is now no more.
Tears are shed in a mortal milieu,
As the soul begins its ascension.
The flowers in decoration serve
As a human memory of the past.
Tender emotions now permeate the air,
As the flowers’ sweet smell is realized.
The moon shines bright in the dark sky,
As the soul now meets its cosmic destiny.

allegory, analogy, bereavement, sick,
Terrific Tremendious Turbulent
Trip Taken Through Time That
Truly Tempted Those Tempered
To Titter Transforming Transparent
Titillating Tenacious Transferred
Trophies Trying Transliterating
Title Transgressing Temptation.
Now you figure it out Contest
with words starting with the
presumable same letter. Ain't
Jim Horn, Soothsayer
and also Word Slayer
PS. It sure is sick alright.
allegory, imagination, inspirational, life, nature, sun, sympathy,
Just call it sympathy
for the sun
As the moon rises
the sun is displaced
by a cold orb
The day is over and
our star has done it's job
Call it sympathy
for the sun
We're moving under
a full moon
Bravely it sends down
it's bright beams to this
But for life to prosper
we need more light
Night will pass
We wait for
of the golden orb
call it sympathy for the sun
Find that the battle's won
Just call it sympathy for the sun
allegory, death, history, loss, people, sad,
At peace, of life bereft
in the last grave on the left
where wilting weed and musty bloom
cloud the legend on the tomb.
Words in chiselled grey
bear false witness every day;
acid rain a solemn screen
when every night was Halloween.
Thunderous drums roll near,
lightning jagged, forked and clear;
marching men and daily bread
echo sacrosanct and dead.
In plywood boxes my friends sleep
out of mind and buried deep;
pray for me throughout the fall,
the one who never sleeps at all…
allegory, analogy, confusion, death, symbolism, write,
A cat pursuing mice
to think twice;
an owl swooping on prey
shows no thought
Then enters man--
a higher moral ground
yet kills for sport
as well as nutrition…
Oh! on occasion
allegory, death, love, passion,
You have took what was mine
and to you I feel it fine
for I do not sit and tarry
on the past that makes us werry.
But that lady in whom you trust
may fill you head with hate and lust
So be careful of that Guinevere
It took me only but a year
To find the pain that lies in her
to find the end, you must concur
That in the end I needed her most
but I had to banish her ghost
Now in your days with love
Treat her well and do not shove
So she may treat you well with all her breath
because, I Arthur, proclaim her death.
Died Being A Miner
Ate great chowder in crowded diner;
Then we had sailed on a lovely liner;
Life would end;
To heaven send;
He did die digging coal being a miner.
