  • If I speak in the tongues of men and angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a tinkling symbol. And if I have prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And if I dole out all my goods, and if I deliver my body that I may boast but have not love, nothing I am profited. Love is long suffering, love is kind, it is not jealous, love does not boast, it is not inflated. It is not discourt

Smile in the Game of Sundial

Criss-crossed shadows we play chess on
The spaces transfigure larger
as the watchmen stop the clocks
As we undress the doors lock
our faces on sketches of paper
Every few years the artist brings back the eraser
and scatters the ashes next to a new,
more beautiful portrait of a goddess
in the night sky, connect the dots
protect the plot
The scheme of parables parallel and bright
like the moons halo
Distraught within a million thoughts a second
Blooming orchids in the garden of silence
Violence between species of animals
The sound of crickets singing in a choir
Vortex of souls I call upon
to display the next seconds vine of events
The murderers descent into madness
Prevent with pure water from flower vases
Re-trace with dull lead to the bedroom of beds
Red and black paint
May I invest in pain
Enough said, carry on enemy of Zion
The remedy within the mathematics of language
Carry on, enough said
I've reserved myself naked
to all of human existence
Check mate just seconds before sunset.

reading this reminds me of those flipbooks, where if you slow down and look at the single image, you get just one thing, but if you speed it up, it becomes a story...very cool imagery, keep em coming

Very nice, I really like your flow. You have good rhythm and I did not have to slow my reading once during your poem. You are very talented, keep it up.

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
