it wasn’t a matter for her consideration

Her shoulder was bare 

a bronze shimmer

uncovered by the slip

of her sleeve

he couldn’t help but to gently stoke the curves 

the sea breeze played with rogue strands of hair 

and her beauty was her sadness 

as she gazed unpon the ruins 

of her buried heart 

she seemed inconsolable 

yet defiant 

and a calm peace 

drew him in 

and he loved her in that instant 

like he’d never loved before 

and knowing it was completely hopeless 

reconciled himself 

to her protector 

and keeper 

of her faith

in something greater.

she didn’t move

and he took this for her compliance 

a small mercy

in the tragedy of their lives.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

in the darkest times a small glint becomes a bright sun of hope.

Eve Of Destruction

Together, Give Peace A Chance, Richie Haven died, so did John Lennon, so did the writers of the words we need now. Anybody got any suggestions for contemporary poet-composer-singers cutting albums that can accompany what is going on politically and militarilly in the world presently (again)? I'm jus sayin' :D

Noooooo!

Rap is not my music genre - that was too many bad rhymes for these old foggie ears. Noooooo! social protest is not anti-war, valid, shaping a generation, yes - like rock and roll hit our grandparents, rap is anathema for this head - gives me a headache and bores me with the monosyllables. Sting? Hmmmm...
