Untitled (Randyjw; November 14, 2019)

 

I recently remembered this long-forgotten poem I’d written at a young-adult period during my lifetime. I guess that deep, and recent, grief in my life has somehow jogged this from the recesses of memory. I thought I’d include it here, now. I believe this completes my entire work-to-date now, except for individual poetry written to individuals, which may have never made it to these pages.

 

 

When I am torn with grief

and aching for a love I cannot yet understand

You smile, knowingly,

and say you understand.

 

Accepting this statement at face value,

I go on.

 

Once again, the hurt swells up inside me;

tugging. tearing.

 

I dare not return while the crowned king

reigns his one-man kingdom.

The Arrowhead And The Gate

 

The Arrowhead And The Gate (Randyjw; November 14, 2019)

 

There are no longer any words I hold

that are my own

I shape yours in hidden poetry

taking flint to flint

etching sentiments into

sedimentary stone

Indulgent Deluge

Indulgent Deluge (Randyjw; May 17, 2019)

 

Oh, brother…

Look what you’ve done

Opened the faucets

and let the water run

 

Now all the tributaries

merge into one

When the cascades fall

it’s the time to run

Shomeret

Shomeret (Randyjw; August 8, 2019)

 

The afternoon’s reflection:

a grown-up girl

Both woman, and warrior

with a sidelock curl

 

 

Shomeret (Hebrew):

 

The afternoon's reflection:
A grown-up girl
Both woman, and warrior
with a sidelock curl
Shomeret (Hebrew):
השתקפות אחר הצהריים:
ילדה בוגרת
גם אישה וגם לוחמת
עם תלתל בצד

 

 

Shomeret (Spanish):

 

El reflejo de la tarde:
una niña adulta
Tanto mujer, tanto guerrera
con rizo lateral

 

 

Shomeret (Hindi):

 

दोपहर का प्रतिबिंब:
एक बड़ी हो चुकी लड़की
स्त्री, और योद्धा दोनों
एक साइडलॉक कर्ल के साथ
दोपहर का प्रतिबिंब:
एक बड़ी हो चुकी लड़की
स्त्री, और योद्धा दोनों
एक साइडलॉक कर्ल के साथ

Will Look

Will Look (Randyjw; July 31, 2019)

 

and beneath the

lash-fringed eyes,

the shyest broad smile

brings peace and

contentment to mine

Too Little, Too Late

Too Little, Too Late (Randyjw; July 31, 2019)

 

Too little

too late

from the more that was in my heart

But found no privacy

to say
