Notes Found on the Refrigerator January 2016

31 Jan

Fear of Night

I toast to you with wine and sweetened bread;

Those of you who are still afraid of night.

Free will and slavery, share the same bed;

With bling bling’s insatiable appetite

 

Nay! Men nor women are excused from lies

When they say, “God’s words, only they can hear!”

Asking for cash, property, jams, and pies;

When, the Spoken Word is hearts hidden ear.

 

Hear! Hear! Hypocrisy of screaming hearts

 Embracing beyond a hand shake or smile,

Stealing souls into night, into the dark,

Where straw shelters burn brightly on trial.

 

Banners, crucifixes, temples, stage lights,

Candles, and guns keep you on guard at night.

 

Sophia’s Invitation

 Sleeping with Sophia;

Bitter-sweet desire on a barbed wire fence.

 

Wisdom, seeks all lovers!

She transcends all borders erected on the altar of soldiers;

Escaping Venus and Narcissus.

 

Love Me, she quietly pleads.

Few answer:

 

Responding by groping

Her physical and intellectual carcass;

Diminished in what she really seeks.

 

Wisdom tunnels into light above the moat of darkness.

Sophia knowing this; embraces the heart of the moon.

    Loved both….Beware of Sophia, as your opening line warns….. brilliantly worded I must say! I love the first poem my friend….strong words laying waste to the hypocrisy out there now. I loved….

    ‘Nay! Men nor women are excused from lies

    When they say, “God’s words, only they can hear!”

    Asking for cash, property, jams, and pies;

    When, the Spoken Word is hearts hidden ear.’

    This said it all for me! Glad to see you back by the way….missed your fabulous words!

    Oh I love your sonnet… so much anger in this… To pray for abundance, and earthly rewards is really an oxymoron I think…

    The second poem is the dark truth in many way. Desire burning into sins.

    I really like your title to these poems. It creates a built-in story, and makes the reader wonder how these pieces might be related.

    Perhaps unintentional, but ‘Notes Found on the Refrigerator’ adds an extra dimension of spooky to these pieces. And what notes – messages to be pondered!

    The title does leave the reader pondering, as Rosemary has said. You sonnet brings in the fear factor of night. I always thought prayers should be humble and from the heart.

    Two captivating poems – i particularly liked the tumble of words in the last two lines of the first poem – and we must all embrace the moon!

    Wish I had notes like these on my refrigerator door. Both of these are wonderful. The first brings out the truth of fear, the second the truth of wisdom. I enjoyed reading these so much. What pure poetry.
