Imagine May Day


They say the witches arise, fly
dark Moon nights, stealthy, silent
in their joyous revelry.
Bonded to the Earth, creation,
learning at mother's breast
to manage life's gifts and lessons.
Man may proclaim, may murder
for fealty, to swear allegiance to
their hunt's command.
They may elevate their One True King
to kneel and obey. They may employ
counting measure, ceremony and sacrifice,
taunting and torture or other trials
thus finding for each loyal swan a pond
to plunder, to parade in royal colour,
their place of pride.
Yet men, on real ground, work companions
to soil and rain, engineers trained to each
moment's urgencies, philosophers of stone and mud,
reason and toil, persist. Their sinew and bone feed
the ages, build clay and richness on which
wealth relies.
Wisdom knows the sweat of practiced movement,
flexible to unexpected barriers, able to modulate
quiet or loud as the crowd ebbs or grows in credulity.
Cruelty is more than tactic; it is the enemy of joy, of
bonding, of works of love and honor.
Arise, lovers! Better days are ours to play in revelry,
to enjoy as neighbors our labors and our fruit.
Accept truth of magic; imagine life into this world.

Thanks, libra. I'll toast to that.

Re: call and response


30th day of Poetry Month


Resonant words align.
Mystic energies manifest,
call to neural chambers: "Come to play!"
Sparkling children firefly dance.
Innocence against a random nightscape
(humbling the wise with unknown unknowns).

The moment flown, eyes carry to the next entertaining bit.
We've had our fun, perhaps an epiphany or two.

Inner ears listening,
merrily engaged in lingering song.
May dance displayed as heady words
sparkle.
Mystically lit fireflies
resonate without end.

What a wonderful way to end the month, Libra. I get the sense of mystic minstrels. Love it, and especially these lines:

"Innocence against a random nightscape
(humbling the wise with unknown unknowns)."
