~The Dragon Flies' Lair~Thread XX
May 8, 2005 | bentfeather Poets of the Lair

Posted on 05/08/2005 8:31:59 PM PDT by Soaring Feather

My Dragon Fly and Me

If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Floating above
the pond's reflection
water lilies scent the morning breeze

Michael Moore is a wonderful haiku poet, whom I met in San Antonio a couple of years ago, at an Asian "New Year's Festival."

Good night Miss Feather and friends of the Lair.

The Tide Falls, The Tide Rises



The tide rises, the tide falls,
The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;
Along the sea-sands damp and brown
The traveller hastens toward the town,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

Darkness settles on roofs and walls,
But the sea in the darkness calls and calls;
The little waves, with their soft white hands,
Efface the footprints in the sands,
And the tide rises, the tide falls.

The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls
Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;
The day returns, but nevermore

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Good afternoon Ms. Feather!

Dew

As dew leaves the cobweb lightly
Threaded with stars,
Scattering jewels on the fence
And the pasture bars;
As dawn leaves the dry grass bright
And the tangled weeds
Bearing a rainbow gem
On each of their seeds;
So has your love, my lover,
Fresh as the dawn,
Made me a shining road
To travel on,
Set every common sight
Of tree or stone
Delicately alight
For me alone.

Evening Solace
by Charlotte Brontë

The human heart has hidden treasures,
In secret kept, in silence sealed;­
The thoughts, the hopes, the dreams, the pleasures,
Whose charms were broken if revealed.
And days may pass in gay confusion,
And nights in rosy riot fly,
While, lost in Fame's or Wealth's illusion,
The memory of the Past may die.

But, there are hours of lonely musing,
Such as in evening silence come,
When, soft as birds their pinions closing,
The heart's best feelings gather home.
Then in our souls there seems to languish
A tender grief that is not woe;
And thoughts that once wrung groans of anguish,
Now cause but some mild tears to flow.

And feelings, once as strong as passions,
Float softly back­a faded dream;
Our own sharp griefs and wild sensations,
The tale of others' sufferings seem.
Oh ! when the heart is freshly bleeding,
How longs it for that time to be,
When, through the mist of years receding,
Its woes but live in reverie !

And it can dwell on moonlight glimmer,
On evening shade and loneliness;
And, while the sky grows dim and dimmer,
Feel no untold and strange distress­
Only a deeper impulse given
By lonely hour and darkened room,
To solemn thoughts that soar to heaven,
Seeking a life and world to come.

a poem for Efrain Bartolomé



one night
I heard a voice
speak poetic rivers and stars
over leopard jungles
and there stood this man
dressed in white
reading,
rain forests
in his pockets
and I could hear
the rustle of forest animals
when he moved
his feet.

his words
floated across the room to me
and landed powerfully
on my face
a push
a forceful brush across my cheek
with falcon feathers
scented of tree bark
and mountain winds
blowing from Chiapas
a welcome
from a foreign
place.

I was graced
with an audience
a book
a signature
from a new friend
and a voice
that told me histories
in slow syllables
comfortable meanderings
between our languages
his words
translated themselves
and they were the same
as mine
a blessing.

The Legend...

The Legend tells as dusk falls
brown eyes smile
in the ceremony of
flight in loving months
the friendship
shant wane

I would be so hurt
to lose you...
there is not a best
nor a worse of you
there is only you
on the astral slide
we are to play
I'll fling you a comet tail
draw you to me
wear you like a
rainbow...an flash
my colors at you
it will not wane...

We meet in the dark
place wired for sound
... dots, flash,
sparkle in silence
you are my noise
forever...
lighting candles
under the stars...

PROFOUND THOUGHTS:

1. Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day;
teach that person to use the Internet and they won't
bother you for weeks.

2. Some people are like Slinkies . . . not really good
for anything, but you can't help but smile when you
see one tumble down the stairs.

3. I read recipes the same way I read science fiction..
I get to the end and I think,
"Well, that's not going to happen."

4. Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying
in hospitals dying of nothing.

5. The other night I ate at a real family restaurant.
Every table had an argument going.

6. Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder
these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they
used to?

7. According to a recent survey, men say the first
thing they notice about a woman is their eyes, and
women say the first thing they notice about men is
they're a bunch of liars.

8. Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again

9. All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It
pays no attention to criticism.

10. Have you noticed that a slight tax increase costs
you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut
saves you thirty cents?

11. In the 60's people took acid to make the world
weird. Now the world is weird and people take
Prozac to make it normal.

12. Politics is supposed to be the second oldest
profession. I have come to realize that it bears a
very close resemblance to the first.

13. There is a theory which states that if ever
anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for
and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and
be replaced by something even more bizarre and
inexplicable. There is another theory which states
that this has already happened.

14. How is it one careless match can start a forest
fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

15. You read about all these terrorists--most of them
came here legally, but they hung around on these
expired visas, some for as long as 10-15 years.
Now, compare that to Blockbuster: you're two days
late with a video and those people are all over you. Let's
put Blockbuster in charge of immigration.

I hope you get a good rain soon, Ms. Feather. We got quite the storm in the middle of the night, and I never heard a thing!

I did have to work today, but it was fun.

We had a Youth Music Competition and Festival here today.

1200 children from around the State were competing in all forms of classical music training; piano, vocal, instrumental
hymns and duets. It is a very rewarding day of work!
