From @e_a_s_. ...tagged by @littlemissbadraconteur via @g.sanchez_writes for a #TRT #totalreposttuesday #repost ...this is actually 2 poems I wrote a while ago. Sometimes it's all about the self discipline to write it out and not act it out. It's been a set of F%&KING mental days lately.
Livid pt. 1

Bell bangs deep in my being
Nerves roughed and torn asunder
Torrent builds and roils forth
Concussed portions feel its thunder
Travels full bore in act to release
Vibration sounds in concrete bones
Solidity breaches practiced disguise
Chest clogged with howling tones
Veins rage in failing containment
System of pressure gauging at peak
Shivers crack the shaky surface
Mind backs off from a foul reek
Anger and agony make fertile alliance
Intention to strengthen the suffering
Joy and peace deep in the corners
Limits excluded with no buffering
Release arrives with swift motion
Fervor climbs outside its gored skin
Most hide and shun a livid notion
Fermenting more dark festered kin

Livid pt. 2

Body seizes the vile energy
Wraps chains and twists tight wire
Pulls with power and encased
Drags emotion through rancid mire
Straighten limbs and tighten sinew
Grimace draws blood from teeth
Eyes darken from hazel to paste
When done, a wreckage I bequeath
Drive down with legs in a rush
Arms harden and poise for a strike
Step rumbles the space in debris
Pain’s warning descends ghostlike
Reason retreats with pitying squeal
Knuckles crush into stone’s scorn
Fists repeat wearing horror’s glove
Sensation altered from the norm
The body steals away from reality
Arms pulls back with ready stance
Forward dash with shoulder lead
Charge with roar in fury’s trance
Impact draws out breath and beat
Yet terror is not yet abated
Sliding down on painted wall
Anger still climbs on will deflated
Anguish tries in vain to reignite
As volcanic tears erupt burning off
Frustration denied and wanting more
This body sits as an empty trough

In 1980, a woman hopped on a subway during the Boston Marathon. No big deal, except for one small detail. She was supposed to be running the marathon! Later, witnesses saw her jump into the race less than a mile from the finish line. She finished well ahead of all the other female runners, and oddly, she wasn’t winded or even sweating much. For a brief time she looked like the winner.

In a conflict long ago, a people who were losing a battle found a more honorable way to win. When messengers told King Jehoshaphat, “A vast army is coming against you from Edom,” he was terrified (2 Chron. 20:2-3). But instead of turning to typical military tactics, Jehoshaphat turned to God. He acknowledged God’s supremacy and admitted his own fear and confusion. “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you” (v. 12). Then the king chose singers to lead the army into battle. Instead of a war cry, they sang of God’s love (v. 21). The result was startling. Their enemies turned on each other (vv. 22-24). In the end, “The kingdom of Jehoshaphat was at peace, for his God had given him rest on every side” (v. 30).

Life can ambush us with overwhelming challenges. Yet our fear and uncertainties give us the opportunity to turn to our all-powerful God. He specializes in the unconventional.

...tagged by @lecosymittens for a #flashbackfriday ...I chose poem this since we are visiting our little puppy girl after her leg was amputated. The situation with her hip became increasingly worse and more painful. An opinion by a top Veterinary Surgeon in Manhattan informed us this is the only way to improve her quality of life without endangering her. After much consideration we reluctantly agreed. Our Maya will be pain free in about 2 weeks for the first time in almost a year. We are crying tears of relief and hope. She comes home in a few days.

Oh, my embarrassed little one
collared by a temporary hoodie
A puppy's brown hankering eyes
only want play and another goodie
.
We know you're no operatic Gaga
nor frenzied media drama Donna
You wish no attention contraption
only your usual slobbering nirvana
.
So, our not really that little one
don't hold grief against this cone
Soon you'll find it as no bother
then big brown eyes gets a bone

...the full story of "Companion" by @loveslight_wisdom and myself. The teal are his words. The violet are hers.

This was inspired by the song "Practical Arrangement" by Sting.  Please take the time to listen to the song. It will work its way into your imagination.

An excerpt from "Practical Arrangement" by Artist: Sting

Am I asking for the moon
Is it really so implausible
That you and I could soon
come to some kind of arrangement
but we could come to an arrangement
a practical arrangement
and perhaps you'd learn to love me
given time

Thank you so much for inviting me Nita. 🙏

...Where

Where can they go,
those with solitude's zest,
but wander there within,
on lanes of no egress?

Their minds so untempered.
by hammering echoes.
Their hearts so encumbered,
on slow lonely roads.

Where are the wide vistas,
so unlike where they reside?

The light interior spaces,
empty of their silent sighs.
Scenery cleared and brighter,
than the harvest of dismay,
they bundle on shoulders,
and carry for another day.

"The Calm Behind Eyes", a #shadorma
...written for this week's #writingchallenge by  @writersuniverse.
...The Shadorma is a Spanish poetic form made up of a stanza of six lines (sestet) with no set rhyme scheme. It is a syllabic poem with a meter of 3/5/3/3/7/5. It can have many stanzas, as long as each follows the meter.

...The Red Sand

The red sand is my external blood,
burned by the serenading desert sun.
The silent searing, foil flashing waves,
boil off the mesas asleep in the blaze.

The light gets lazy with scenery like this,
pale blues sigh as browns and yellows hiss.
Standing assured where shadows won't dare,
this moment ignores what others compare.

In this pure neutral heat dry of addition,
I could be here forever until my fruition.

...I was musing on words. Where are they before they arrive? In what mood? Do they prefer some to others? Then I saw the wide ocean in my imagination and then it began.  It's weirdness I can account for by blaming my own. 😊 I hope you find entertainment within.

In a Blue Column of Ocean

Words can easily swim,
in the natural chaos,
like opposing forces,
when loosed to flow,
inside fluid suspension.

In a blue column of ocean light,
mind pulls from the surface,
the playful, bright darting fish.
Its vibrant, joy filled colors, a glad display.

In a blue column of ocean dark,
heart beckons to the thing below,
that ripples with dour putrescence.
Its love decaying the drowning sun rays.

Meeting in my mid navy blue,
the beasts slide and sing,
as the groans and bleats,
become a single being,
writhing on waves of reality.

Glad scales with bright faces,
flutter in opposite ways,
and quake while glistening.
A few cracked dour maws,
are always reshaping,
gargling out decaying shrieks.

Their coughed up globules,
roll awkward as they drift,
and make a definite music.
The significant sounds,
some might take for granted.
Yet, a blend of light and dark,
is a welcome into the splendid.

👀👇 . . . Tagged by @flightofpoesy with several word prompts from 2 poems. First was a #sonnet with the prompts; "cosmic" and "nightlights" via @areadingwriter and "mist" via @soshiniesingh and then #parch from @thangbalay 's weekly prompt. The last was a prompt of #pendulum from another poem.  I could not slip in your "domesticity" prompt. I'll have to take a hit for that one I guess. 😊 The vid I took last night from a pier not far from my place. The bridge is The Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

The Night City's Ocean - sonnet
.
The night so lulls the day with her dark breath
her kiss ensorcelling her new moon tryst/
Her void above the world endears such depth
few stars dare shine beyond city's bright mist/
.
Between deep night and darkened seas reside
grand nightlights so directing city's ways/
The gently strung suns and full moon pole guides
leave gifts for the sea's parched shimmering waves/
.
The pendulum of ocean's soft romance
shines bright small glitters up into the night/
The ocean twirls in city's cosmic dance
lithe little skirts flash silver in delight/
.
All three, the night, city and sea the same
humanity seems unlikely to tame/

...Horizon

The mulberry eye shadowed horizon,
drowses with her lashes upon the sea.
She has coyly winked away today's sun,
now she opens dusky eyes upon me.

Her skin's warmth is the softest of sands,
and sparkles like sins adrift on deft hands.
The rolling crystalline waves are her tongue,
her lips shine wetly with deep azure love.

...Two Trees

My sky lined eyes,
nestle within two trees,
standing subtle,
in smooth prairie weeds.

The touch of the hill,
lends a curve to each stone,
and it's there my skin,
is scraped clean and honed.

The relic polishing breeze,
twirls with my breath,
and lends a new aspect,
to my heart's desire for rest.

EaS ...incorporated a tag from @lecosymittens for the #wordprompt #desire. Thank you Gloria.
