"Where Spanish Moss Prevails!"

to be read aloud....

A child was born and grew to stand,

in sand-spurred sand, and watched the sails;

of ships from shores of foreign lands-

he grew to wend through tortured trails

his way to those exotic strands,

advising all who might inquire

the origin of this wand'ring male;…

December Scene

December Scene



Snow upon a homeless soul

stooped inside a doorway

hiding from the cutting wind

weary from hard times again,

suffering a poor man’s pain,

wondering why rich men reign,

holding on that God will come

and bless his family,

somewhere in a shelter

in this large city.

 

He regains his feet to move

somewhere down the street…

Musical Questions

 

If we begin the music of love making
Will the language we share be harmonic?
Who arranges the pulse of the piece?
Decides which beats are accented
Which beats are not?
Will they…

iPoetry and Codeine

 

In The December Grey

 

 

after Satan laughs

it begins

there will be no Vicodin today

 

In the parking lot a shadowy figure mumbled a kind of

hello. At first I thought him an hallucination, but with the

sun breaking through the bleakness and codeine deprivation

 

vice-gripping my brain, I recognized Gary's black onyx…

"The epic of Enkidu!"

 

artist unknown

 


poem © Fred Hallman 2012 

(to be read aloud)


I am Enkidu not Gilgamesh -  a native libertarian I am!

While sampling Shamat's pulchritude,

I nibbled round her baited hook,

then swam away as free fish do.

So 'scaped from Babylon I am,

nay schooled nor drooled on her spavined teat.…

A Winter Street

A Winter Street



Upon a winter street one day

I saw the empty pockets

on poor man’s face.



Compelled, I asked his business

although ‘twas not my place.

He replied his year was hard;

he lost his job, lost his house

and then he lost his way.



I tried to hand him twenty

and he told me of his Grace;

a daughter ill at only four

as tears…

Reveal

Reveal yourself to me,

I yearn to know more.

Touch me intimately

from across a crowded room

with nothing but your eyes.

Show me the power of your desire.

Tell me how I might grasp your soul

and pull, so sweetly.

Lay with me, teach me to fly,

hold me within your grasp, that I might be free.

Give me a moment of your life

that I might know the infinite.

From where I lie, I see

the landscape of your body

stretching out before…

Moving Forward

Moving Forward



We wander the edge of uncertainty

hoping to find the path,

looking for guidance as we move

toward the unknown each day;

never the same encounters,

never expected results,

never the best scenario

as we all find our way.



Fog brings an unclear future

as we grope through the mist;

each step a new adventure

somehow not on…

Frosty Mississippi

Frosty Mississippi

Mittens on the mice this morning
as they dart about
looking for a breakfast meal
underneath the feeder
where the birds have spilled some seed
and the advantageous treats
will fill their early need.

After The Frost Subsides



After The Frost Subsides



Crystallized dew holds nature in pause

then the radiance of the morning sun

evokes a pulse to the new day

as I watch in awe, all, which is a gift

to my aging eyes

listening to the morning song

of those feathered few who remain

determined to face winter

for another year in God’s garden.

Mot Bateaux

My words bump and jostle -

boats in an unruly harbor.

Creaky at some times, leaky at others

often listing dangerously.

Language is a port for ‘ideas expressed’

holding exploration in each and every craft

that set sail daily for far horizons.

The boats of thought are carried on breath,

tilting at fairwinds and gales alike,

defying the storms, and the odds,

finding wharf in clusters and groups,

strung together into ideas, jokes,…

Judging the River (Poem)

By Daniel Rigney

 

World's finest river? Be the judge.

If  depth is what you want,

the Congo wins hands down --

its deepest point 800 feet beneath the air.

The Congo has its shallows, to be sure.

But where it's deep, no other river can compare.

The narrowest river in the world, Mongolia’s…

Twas the Night of Black Friday

Twas the night of Black Friday, and all through the towns

Eager shoppers had hunted for the best bargains around.

They showed up in droves, stood in line before dawn,

To ensure they got the deals before they were gone.

 

When the doors opened, they pushed and they shoved.

They had to get perfect gifts for the ones that they loved.

It didn’t matter how much money they spent,

The look on their faces would be worth years of…

Forgiving Me

 Forgiving Me



Am thankful for forgiving

for to hold on to such poison

is a death within itself

which rots the host from deep inside

the casing holds but we have died

consumed with malcontent and hate

which kills love that should radiate

to draw those stuck in darker places

lighting up a world of faces

and know I’m guilty of this sin

to hang on…

Forever Thankful

Forever Thankful



Forever thankful for my life;

reflecting on the days gone by

the times of new discovery,

the ways life’s lessons came to me,

the understanding little things

and knowing what right action brings;

those hard times when the world looked dark,

were new life journeys to embark;  

another book, chapter or page

which quelled the anger and…

By Our Words…

By Our Words…



I found myself without a friend for something that I said

and though I’d said a million things this one had made me dead

to her and all her hopes and dreams; for each who had a face,

somehow I slipped the balance beam and fell out of her grace



As always in my daily life my mouth preceded me

although I thought I had insight, I guess I could not…
