Conversant by Easter Ellen

Too far gone to discuss it at all

Too down deep for words to recall

Too forlorn for words to describe

So I sit and ponder as I scribe

No Change by Easter Ellen

by Easter Ellen

I assay the situation but there is no change

Still at the bottom of the recesses in my mind

Why can’t I pull out through it?

His Sweet Voice by Easter Ellen

by Easter Ellen

When I’m so far down that I can’t see light

I slip so easily to that pit without fright

When the day disappears and there’s only night

I cry out to hear Your sweet sound

Encrusted by Easter Ellen

Though she had given all of her heart

to a man she fully trusted

He left her with a broken heart

That stagnated and rusted

On Easter Sunday

by Regina Saint Claire

easter

by R. Saint Claire

.
Poetry challenge: Easter poem.
.
In our Sunday coats we stay.
A sunny day! When coloured
Eggs and sweets we crave:
A visit to the family grave.

Up the thorny path we're taken
To the hill where marble crypts
And busts of men (their ranks forsaken)
Rest in shades of obelisks.

The face of the horizon solemnly vowed.
The depth of the sunset engraved in red.
As many as will believe He offers rebirth.

Kidney stones poem.

by Easter Ellen
Kidney stones don't rock!

Kidney stones don’t rock!


 

In Full Force

 

 

In full force I lie here rocking with stones

 

Arrows shot from my kidney to shatter my bones

 

 

I cringe and I writhe from these bastardly things

 

Break my flesh and my spirit at their jagged-edged sting

Caterpillar lost in mud
Look up; take flight; soar

Spring’s sweet embrace

We both know sadness, tribulations few
But rejoice in the finding

We’ve found ourselves through each other’s hearts
Brought together in spirit, though oceans apart

How Can We?

by Easter Ellen

Victoria, so precious as a baby

Victoria, so precious as a baby


 

How Can.. 

 

 

How can the years pass so slowly when moments pass so fast?

 

How can we take the precious moments and bottle them to last?

 

 

How can we live in the moment when we waste our days?

 

How can we teach the young to learn is much more than to play?

Not Yours

by Easter Ellen

Not Yours

I know your voice, I’d bid you goodbye

I sent you away, and still you draw nigh

As if you own a part of my fragile spirit

Closer you slink, black heart; how I fear it

Hope lifts with eyes to see new

Hope lifts from struggles of worries and cares

Hope shines to impart a new view

She tip-toed ’round the corner

Eyes of anticipation

Her heart racing madly

Breath short from expectation

This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass

 

This too shall pass

This daunting impasse

A place so well-known from before

 

Alone and bereaved

Collapsed and aggrieved

Crushed through to the core

Feeding Frenzy

This dry, arid place of desolation

Shattered, I lie broken on the ground

This ruinous place of no salvation

Defeat, hatred and anguish all abound

She weaves her web in her woeful wont
Encircling my lily neck
Her wounding cries they tease and taunt
Seducing my mind to a wreck

This cobbled lane she’s wandering
Fog obscuring her view
She saunters lost, not pondering
This world of charcoal-gray hue

Even the darkest night is followed by day
Even the worst storm ends with blue skies
Even the most broken heart learns to sing again

Nothing to write

My pen lies impotent

So weak in its plight
