Poetry There are a number of poets among the Ovi team, so we have gathered the together here.
| ||Talk All Tranforming|
Those obstacles that our paths do harrass,
At each turn rise of newest plot contrive,
Bring in line, override tactics crude crass
And from the whole only pleasure derive.
| ||How To Resolve a Self Contradiction|
I pray to God
but don't believe
believe in me
| ||Dormant Emotion|
The smallest infringement is a ruse
Where I am entertained in laughter,
And tied by the bonds of sorrow,
But where is my enlightenment
That kindles each parting gift released?
Where then is my muse?
While waiting for the sun after a midnight rain
my dampened dream conspired to put forward
a stream of colorless schemes immersed
in the running time of lost persuasions.
It is inevitable, after sixty years,
And my eyes are on the ground,
Search the forest,
Among the bushes behind the humps
| ||Desert Valley |
An orange sky
Over a desert valley.
| ||Where the River Bends|
Our memories were
Once possibilities of
God's timeless perfection
| ||To a Friend Who Died in the Swamp|
Rivers meet in my eyes for you. Transfixed on the veiled Mound of the swamp, Lone Beholder of unsteady opera On rotten marble, You saw the reeds dancing To unknown winding plight, Smothering storms broken At your feet.
There is no blood
on my hands;
no blood-lust in my heart.
| ||Thoughts All Forthright |
How many times do we seek so at the highest
Their thoughts opinions on matters of our concern
As though age or position makes them much the wisest,
Able to take stands, magically matters discern.
