ਐ wrath ਐ

ਛ       a bold indigo ceiling above-
ਜ       the sky folds light                                                                              
ਣ       and sheers green fields                                                                    
ਢ      the sun swallows shadows                                                              
ਡ      in reeds of epiphany                                                                          
ਡ      I rise from embers                                                                            
ਠ      thinking vengeance                                                      
ਝ      my heart awakens                                                                              
ਔ        ripping stitches
ਔ        eventually sleep
ਡ         ingesting poison

humm, george harrison work. 'and walk with slipped diligence' is too wordy, like you couldn't figure out how to write that in poetry. but, the piece is mostly pleasant and pretty and a nice read.

'poison' could be a glass of scotch, if the reader weren't interested in your life, but just reading this as a middle-class blah-blah from an over decorated living room.

inGesting.  Not inJesting.  enjoyed otherwise.  Thanks
 — Haxxen

thanks all.

i like the presentation of this, an illustrated page made sacred by the sounds and shapes, it certainly improves the dalliance with the brightly illuminated miniature image in the middle.

one page of a book, a book that gives  simple answers to complex questions.
 — jharrison

The poem in itself is great.
Not sure I like the rest.
I know it is there to seem cool, but to me it just messes it up.
 — mandolyn

many thanks.

Unk.... I read this while listening to a love song on (The Cove) it was very pleasing, weird huh?   anywho this is quite interesting and original

What's with all the symbols?  

It isn't doing anything here as far as I can see.  

Does it say something?  

If not, then lose it, as it appears like novelty gimmick.

Not really meshing well with this.  

Is it bad?  Perhaps not.  I don't know.

It just reads fairly flat to me.

More like a descriptive writing exercise.
 — OldShoe

I think it is lovely and the writing makes this seem to me cryptic and gives it some flava- flavor
Everyone is entitled to their opinions, I just do not feel the need to tell someone what they have to do with their own work. As they say 'you can catch more flies with honey than you can vinegar".
Or in this case more beautiful feet with lilac foot scrub than with an Old shoe.

What's with all these knights of the square table?  

This isn't a middle school field trip to Medieval Times.

Who's honor are you trying to defend and for what purpose?

I'm tired of this "fly to honey" colloquial phrase nonsense being thrown around like it is some catechetical truth.

If I wanted to trash this poem, I would have.  I could have.  But I didn't.

It's a fucking opinion.  

It's feedback.  

Learn to deal with it.
 — OldShoe

Using Gurmukhī script to decorate your work detracts from the written effort. Sticking in a random scattering of Gurmukhī as the title is offensive.
 — DianaTrees

^^^ as was mine, feedback, deal with it!

Offensive to who?
 — unknown

Unknowns are little more than oxygen thieves, trolls and wanking cunts. Until you've the balls to sign your name, fuck off. If you find your heuvos, we'll talk about offence.

I would hardly base my knowledge on some do-it-yourself- forum scientist. I need cold hard facts

seriously? You need cold hard facts to disprove a proverb? LOL

I meant nothing by it-- just that you are welcome to talk smack about my poetry. It doesn't bother me. But I would love honesty.

And THIS poem above-- is good except for the junk surrounding it.
 — mandolyn

frame is splendid.

i want to eat the words you have used. all words should hang from a line. upside down.

looking up at the sky or otherway round. depending on time.

as for the middle filler. it is just that. filler. poetic cliche. and destroys the art surrounding it.

thanks you. i have spoken from the shhhhhhhhhrooket of my hart. my name is bart.
 — unknown

thanks for perusing.

Ananke - Your delicious sense of humor (proverb, indeed!) is not lost. I sense brilliance in you.
 — DianaTrees

damn this was brilliant. i love the way it was presented
 — psychofemale

gratias ago vos.
