storm winds howl
in fury rage
lash dark clouds
in thunder running
lightning laced
they storm across
her cool
impassive face

she answers
in silence
immortal grace
her face
softly knowing
her smile
sometimes showing
in silence

In the silence of the morning
The sun rises, bright and clear
And it's you she's missing, my dear
I tell her, it's not real
She says, life rarely is ideal
I tell her, it's only a feeling of love
She says, your hand fits like a glove
I tell her, it will break her heart
She says, to love is to be torn apart
I ask her why this dangerous path
She says, it's a game and to lose, we hath
I ask her how this happiness
This radiance of her being
She says love gives me strength
It gives me peace
I hesitate but ask
If you love her too
She said, she never asked
She was busy falling for you
Until next time, all will close I sink in my woes
Forever is within reach, every mile drowns an inch
as a soul depletes

The magic disappears I now yearn for your warmth
heaven in your eyes is where my heart resides,  hold me tight
Love helps me progress in this earth
you let my heart rake your world and I fell for you
the same love drags me down
I will hold you down with fragile emotion
if the pressures of the world draws me to you
i'm weak to your presence

You smite my eyes if only my love did hold you
it's foolish beyond measure but heaven promises me you
Till the end of eternity I will hold you close
**my love will know the value of your heart as time goes

O my Veena(lute) arises
Playing which tune?
In which new
Playful verse
O my heart vibrates
In the beats
Of the
All encompassing
O come which youth
So devoid of calm

Flying across the vastness
Of the enchanted area
Of the region
O in the dance of light
The ends of the forests
Are joyous
In playful glee!
O in the premises
Of the sky!
O the mighty cymbals
O in that flow of beats
O applause
In the abundance
Of leaves!

O in the touch
Of house feet
Hope in the
Strands of grass
O the overflowing
O the wind
Without any boundaries
Is so pepped
In which fragrance
Of the forest!

Oh radiance of the sun, do not leave us and go
Illuminate the path and we will turn to guidance
Do not leave us
For darkness, no!
We'll be back

Light up, Oh sun of pride and beauty, with your radiance to provide the growth of the wonderful spring flowers whichs oud and fragrants we enjoy!

And then the night comes to break
We'll look at the horozon and make
A prayer that will take
all the darkness from the night
Make this world bright
Beautiful with the suns might

Like the glowing sun
I start my days with a smile
And thoughts about you

together with a book on my hands and thoughts of you...that's how my morning starts
J Nov 2017
There is strength in her heart,
like the waves that softened
a stubborn rock.
Warmth, like summer breeze
that gives solace to
a weary soul.
Radiance of the sun emanating
through her eyes,
and brings hope with every sunrise.

And I will love her,
until my heart caves in.
Cimmerian Chaos, incediary
The Requiem of the Revenant:

Tis I,
The Breathing Song
Conjuring a vestige,
Ensorcelled by what I'd been envisaging.

Maimed by Tempus, The Temporal Arbiter
Words reverberating on the wavelength of my soul
Left me vibrating desolate and wayworn.
Utterances deluging me in the Dominion of Doubt
Until I reached a crossroads
For perilous was the pilgrimage I peregrinated.

The Penultimate Tribulation has begun
And though angst is festering in my flesh,
The Sacred Lotus of Dreams has not wilted,
Shalt it ever upon the Lake of the Holy Oracle;
Elysium of the Soul is awaiting those who are stalwart
In the Visage of the Shadows.*


By Sanders M. Foulke III
Two month old free verse poem regarding my own martyrdom and tribulations in the flesh. My iniquities can bring about lightness and sanctity if I so speak it into my life. Surrendering over all suffering, woe, and lamentation over to the Ethereal leads to transcendence of blight and ascendence to Elysium of the Soul. Be encouraged when you suffer, for peril means not ending but genesis. Genesis of wisdom, love, power, justice, endurance, meekness, humility, loyalty, faith, hope, joy, and every other virtue that is His. Any feedback is most appreciated. Enjoy! God bless!

i want to bring warmth
to spread comfort
to inspire kindness
and hope

i want to bring to others
the playful contentment
i feel when i observe a sunflower

blooming with no acknowledgement of its surroundings
just using the sunshine and unknowingly sharing
its radiance
