Bronze Star - 5,105 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Within Caverns Deep


Somewhere in the bowels,
Of dungeons vaulted within caverns deep...
Truth has begun its struggle to crack through,
Thick and fortified walls that had trapped despair...
With an ease found to release and find escape,
From places where it had been kept hostage.

Sweating deceivers begin to strip off masks,
With attempts to find new tasks...
For purposes to charade a continued masquerading.

However...
Traces of their false faces,
Portraying their misdeeds as sincere...
Can no longer defend them against the strength of truth,
Pursuing with a vengeance...
To undo the torment done by deceivers who chose,
With a victimizing those they left abused.

Disbelievers of all faiths are confused!
Forced awake as if by Earthquake.
Trembling and visibly shakened,
By what to their eyes appear.
And it's neither Santa Claus nor 'reindeer'.
But the presence of truth before them is clear.

Screams are heard when deceivers are revealed.
Visions of sweetened dreams no longer appeal.
A process of mending begins to heal.
And truth never before confronted like this,
Arrives finally to make a permanent visit.
To be treated with suspicion as if...
'Aliens' have dropped from outer space.

'What is this?
Everyone seems to now have it on their lips.'

~It is...
Truth.
People have become afflicted.
From mouths the words flow as if from faucets.
No longer from both sides of their mouths,
Do deceptions slip.
This is TRUTH I tell you.
And people have become afflicted.~

Screams are heard when deceivers are revealed.
Visions of sweetened dreams no longer appeal.

'What is this? '

~This is TRUTH I tell you.
And people have become afflicted.~

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
