Seeing Autumn's oak adorn

Painting sky before I was born,
Draping my grave in leaf and acorn.

Like A Phoenix

To live forever like the phoenix; To re-taste the process of birth; From the cleansing flames, to rise Knowing death is no end; An eternal soul On a journey May just find Supreme Bliss.

The intricate web Of life has been spun; It’s twists and turns hold, Keys to our very Existence on Earth. How we are formed, Born, survive and Die and purpose, In life’s grand scheme. Together, We create; Colorscape. Blending Abstract Art.

Seasons of Life and Death

Under the care of sun and rain
My leaves have unfurled
My buds have burst forth
My own will has been done
This was my beginning
Through the seasons
Spring brought me to life
Summer grew me to new heights
The fall must come sometime
The frost will encase my barbs
And I will return to meditation
Waiting patiently for my rebirth
For your light to peek through clouds
Your moon to hold me within night
When spring returns...
I will dance in the wind
A never ending flower

Surely, I Shall

Surely, I shall recall my death as well as I fail to remember my birth.

Many Lifetimes

Incarnations of many lifetimes
sweep before me...
Liberating my soul's chants 
As universal notes of music
Float on vibrant strands of color, 
Phasing purple, pure and light, 
In violet vibrations, swirls of
Incandescent glitter shimmers
Drawn by gravity in downward drifts.
Flaming candle's smoky essence 
Mixes with incense of sandalwood
In a wafting waltz of vertigo.
Past and present intertwine
Lacing love with pulsing pain.
Effervescent breath is shallowed
By visions from the living dead.

Love for someone,

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?
The happiness you have received,
The realization of the world of sorrow.

Life has listened to me,
Why do you co-exit?
Love you all,
We all hate hatred.

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?

Everyone broken my heart,
Why do you do me love?
Why do you want us everything?
We have given everything to us only punishment.

Sorrow is my companion now,
Why do you tears your drowsy?
The happiness you have received,
The realization of the world of sorrow.

The rosebud blooms—makes its grand debut 
in joyous spring.  Day by day, its
petals open wide—all stages lead to
fullness in the end. When autumn air
delivers chill, its petals drop as life
and death their endless duet sing. It
then awaits new life next spring when
The rosebud blooms—makes its grand debut

The Stillness

The Stillness
Dead Babies Do Not Cry

From the moment of conception
I was kept in the darkness
Alone, crying, kicking
One day I was brought into the light
Air filled my lungs and sadness my soul

From the first day of birth
I smiled to hide incessant fear
I stopped moving the moment I was born
For the solitude and sadness of the womb
Followed me my whole life

Eos - Call of the Dawn

On the seventh ray
Of the fourteenth sun
Death hath come twofold
Arose a Titan in this age
Amidst this nimbus looms darkness
Betwixt the ash and sage

Approach cyclical ritual
Dousing wings in feral flames
Latent gravidity does surmise
For upon my resurrection
Eos I shall rise

Birth Of A Child

A woman shattered the night, with her agonizing scream
Sacrificing her might has dawned realization of a dream.

She has given me a wonderful heir, to bear my name
And left her sweet memories, for the spirits not wane.

Death to Life

Sunset until daybreak Mournful tears disperse Grieving widow’s heartache Rhyming woeful verse Pencil topper lifted Graphite scribbled prose Candle holder shifted Table's withered rose Somewhere marvel science Infant newly born Crying pierces silence Breaching early mourn Joyful teardrops glisten Mother’s newfound joy Widow cannot listen Whispers, “It’s a boy.”

Baby Wishes

Precious, life sustaining oxygen flows
no longer; linking chord tethering me
severed, I lie upon hard cold table.

I see cloudy images--a table
holds my angel mother. Sweet red blood flows
from soft nurturing nest once holding me.

Mommy, don’t discard your babe. Look at me!
Life can be saved. An abortion table
Should not separate with death our love flows.

Love flows away. Save me from this table.

I'm a Star

Once I was just pieces of dust,
Then I fell,
Gravity of my sadness changing me,
Tears fused me together,
And now I am who I am today,
A light to many worlds,
Once broken pieces,
But now a star.

Sing On

We have heard it said before
That the soul beats on 
Long after the heart has tired in its mortal labor

Where will our songs go
After the grave has subdued its cries?

Angered, silent ghosts will drop a glass
And never hear it's shatter...
How much more to them than broken glass,
Will you matter?

Remember this before your first exit:

There will always be those that will hear the music,
Beyond your days of breath
Only special ears in tuned with the earth,
And its universe he and she will see in all its shamelessness

Sing on!
Sing on to those you know will hear
Let never your soul be mute
Long after those special ears, tongue, flesh, and eyes
Close to rot

Poem to Self in Passing

Bury me not to rot deep in the bowels of earth,
all alone in the cold, silent, dank wetness of dirt.
For the very first day I awoke before birth
I was floating in the warm sea of the womb, so alert
to my mother's warm body fluid, soothing and supporting.
Bobbing and rocking, caressed by her comforting
touching of me, and her soft muffled words and lullabies,
I was carried in her womb until my birth's surprise and cries.

At my demise, burn my body, scatter my ashes far out to sea
so they can bob and rock, floating in sheer delight and glee
at being back in a womb, back in the sea, where I want to be.

Arrived Yet Early



Our child

Our wee girl

Too small to draw breath

She wanted our love so dearly

Could not wait to know us and greet this glorious world

Yet she arrived early, and now sleeps eternal in the security of your arms

Life is a battle if my love can see,
The world seems to live in its own miseries ,
Still i promise to play my part,
Loving to the end until i loose my heart,
Flowers of this bond will never fade,
Like a bride adorning her with amber and jade,
When good chants rhymes in ivory night,
When venus tells its pigeon to sore new heights,
Even when grace of god is hidden in dark,
Chord of love cannot be made apart.

Love Cast A Spell

At my birth a ringing, to mother's heart I was clinging- I loved her smell. She taught me what was best, and to my child head a kiss pressed- Love cast a spell. And when her life ended, was I, who with love attended- Weeping farewell. __________________________ May 29, 2020 Poetry/Rhyme/Love Cast A Spell Copyright Protected, ID 20-1256-606-03 All Rights Reserved, 2020, Constance La France Written for Triple Stanza Couplet Tail-Rhyme Contest sponsor, Charles Messina (birth,life,death) Third Place

Silent Spirit Soul Surrenders Soars to Heaven-

Discerning knowing ongoing boring destitute high-minded absolute confined it in resolve End bizarre I close my open eyes to see the inside of me as I am relieved of my spirit my soul surrenders and I fly like a dove toward the skies I'm enhanced I am no longer in a trance not Beyond belonging to myself I take on a second breath not I relinquish I passed the test I am solemn

This is me

My knees were the things that 
kept me up and my skin is my 
cutting board my eyes are the 
rain clouds to the fire running 
down my arms and my heart is 
the fire place that keeps me 
burning so calm

A little clock face

It has memory's 
It has anniversary s
It has deaths
It has  births
It has a lot for a little clock face.
It has weddings
It has dates
but above all else it stop us from being late.

I came unaware; a heartbeat 
comfortable in place 
forced onto existence 
on a starry night 
before the light began.

time opened up 
and reality flew by
on a memory tapestry
Interwoven signed and
sealed as a solitary life 

from the beginning
to the end, all was  
destined to be remembered
by thoughts alone
creations of vanity
shared in a connected 
cosmic consciousness 
we can only guess at.

CAK 3-25-2013


From birth to death
Life is a creation of unknown origin
intertwined and interrelated
with all earthly things.
existing in the end,
only in memory
