The Epic Battles


Thunderous wet roars,
Carcass of humanity,
The epic battles,

******

The battle of good against bad,
Enormous faith throttling life,
Never-ending phantom strife,
Laughing on faith being glad,

The bleeding hope of souls,
Evil accumulating greed,
Castle of insanely hopeless deed,
Proud over tiny goals,

Those were the battles of truth and lie,
Battles of ruthlessness and compassion,
Battles of duty and aimless aggression
Shook the world and burned the sky,

*****
Sky,
Cried hope,
Mother Earth
Devastated,
Proud killed brilliance,
Greed created a misdeed,
Sky shivered gutsy lightning,
A warrior of ethics stepped,
To enlighten sleeping Mother earth
And righteousness killed inhumane Ego,

******

On the other side,
An apparent display of energy,
When a Goddess killed a demon,
Reflecting the power of a women creating synergy,

The equality of sexes at sacred moments,
At different testing times,
Epic battle won by both,
Relieving earth from envious clouds of crimes,

*******

This is a day of sacredness,
Hinged on righteousness,
Enlightening human souls,

Energy of synergy,
Protecting faith and truth,
Incarnation of Holy Spirit,
Clearing every misdeed,

Blessing to whole earth,
Astutely and courageously showered,
The day of astonishing magic when,
Twilight turned dawn,
Leaving every soul shocked,
Enlightening belief in truth and righteousness,
Showcasing power of right and purity

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
