Leslie Alexis Poems

1.
All Things Lovely

Lovely things begin with the sunshine.
Her rays illuminate faces
So that smiles can be seen.
Her love so bountiful
...

2.
I Am Christ's

In Heaven, at the right hand of God I’ll sit,
I haven’t been there, but my eyes can see it.
Adorned in righteous robes, I’ll stand by the king.
I will see angels flying with their angelic wings.
...

3.
Be Safe, Angel

The wailing tunes of the long lost child.
Her father’s ways the cause of her cry.
So many lovely young ones wish to die.
Because they know not love, tears fill their eyes.
...

4.
The Decaying Green

Walking along the path I heard leaves break
Becoming like dirt under the soles of my shoes.
They, in their millions, epitomized beauty
And life, but now they decompose and wane.
...

5.
Your Choice

The howling wind that has no life,
Seeks my own with both blood and knife;
But in my God I will stand strong,
And if It think it’d win, it's dead wrong.
...

Well, i've been at this Literary thing for quite awhile now...Seen many a face come and go...some good, some not so good, but earnest in their attempts at greatness. And once in a Green Mile, which Stephen King wrote'was the longest mile', i come across the precocious element of literature....Someone who barely out of his teens, has already carved a finely chisled poetic niche of his own along with garnering a large supportive Readership base on several of the internets most prestigious literary/poetry sites.Les Alexis is the person i speak of. His prodigious command of structure, diction and innovative craftsmanship may only perhaps be superseded by his extraordinary talent for diversification, as a multi-style artist of the Written Word. In my 4 years on this site, i have made it a point not to get involved in publicly singling out any one Poet/Writer for outstanding literary accomplishment, as my belief is that doing so has its propensity of causing hard feelings with those i may have either overlooked, or did not feel they were due special acknowledgement. However to every standard there is always that rare exception to the rule. And in my book of words, Les Alexis has proven his wothiness to that exception. Bottom line...whether it be here at poemhunter.com where he just recently contributed close to 500 of his works, to the site, or at poetfreak.com, where he is arguably recognized as one of the sites most popularly read and valued talents, ....do yourself a favor and take the time to treat yourself to the poetry of Les Alexis....You will not be disappointed!

I came across one of your terza rima sonnets when looking through the new poems. It is encouraging to find another form-poet here. I look forward to reading more of your work. All the best.

This poem for Leslie Alexis from Honest Heart: The power of the Smile You have a sword, don't you know? You have a power, don't you believe? You have a key, don't you sure? Don't you know, by your smile: You can be the fire …. You can be the pen… You can be the star… Don't you know, you can be as you wish? Don't you believe, you can be as you dream? Don't you think, you can be the leader? Don't you know: Sweet smile can make date for two sweet soul… Pure smile can play love song on some one's heart… Honest smile can put the fire on your desire… Optimistic smile can clear all the darkness… True smile can paint the rainbow on your life… Strong smile can put shining stars on your sky…

I like it a lot. I know where you are coming from so well. I will read more and savor the taste of literary ear candy. . Like all things bad for you, left unchecked will perplex your tranquility. I had a sweet tooth once forcibly removed without Novocain. The pain remains, the symptoms lay dormant, but in the end this is just how life works. Thanks for the wonderful reading.
