2014

If God might let me walk the paths of 2014,
(ameen)
then I shall spend it
as a research scholar, a student of life;

I shall learn the tones of voices,
the moods' diction, the words unsaid;
steal the shades from the rainbow stripes,
the colored band,
and make them the ink for my new poems;

I shall snap the spell of silence, and
learn to talk aloud;
sanity will be my targeted objective...
the east sky will energize me
the west sky will be my Major;

I shall learn to break the metaphors
by reading the text of my dreams;

declare myself a soldier hard
against the seven deadly sins;

I shall learn the ways of sages
keeping sailors' vision
in their eyes, under their skins,

yes,

I shall rise and I shall shine
no way but this,
for the stars threatened me on terms,
have put a condition before me
that they won't talk to me
unless I become the leading luminary
brightening up my own horizon! ! !

    shame on those stars for being so picky.
    i especially enjoyed reading and considering, ever so briefly, the lines:

    steal the shades from the rainbow stripes,
    the colored band,
    and make them the ink for my new poems; ............that should be interesting!

    but leave a little color in the sky for the rest of us to enjoy, please!

    yes, stay safe....if possible. thanks for sharing. :) bri
