So Many Words Spoken Over Us

20160514_175924

So many words spoken over us, at times unseen

as if they gently rested

on our shoulders, whispering

into our spirits, both

hawks and doves,

so that in our peace we can

pull down every particle of grey

and black smoke

drifting,

creeping in from our ruined history.

Until finally

there is enough glory

to write a poem,

pulled down

from the sky.

  1. Pretty sweet…..takes on a journey…..similarly….I often feel like an antennae receiving signals….the art is to ‘pull it down as you say’….. ex nihil….exnihilio…..something from nothing….almost…..we create…Thanks…littleraventhepoet.blog….

  2. Grains Of Sand……Did you leave your silken throne in heaven….for an earthly mission….BOUND?…Did you come to ordain my eyes to see ?…..my ears amplify for sound?….I know you left your Fathers mansion…winding streets of gold…to come and wear a thorny crown….I know you’re higher than the angels….super natural God…beyond the clouds…..my need is that you’re super-other….sent from the all high hand…..to come and dance on my ocean….and remove the Grains Of Sand…..from my eyes….littleraventhepoet….or Coy Payton…(Frank)…..my first just above vanity publishing was called Inner Skies…FYI…only mention in passing…..love your Ancient Skies…name….

  3. Hello…..I guess Frank…..Coy is my legal name…..but I’m not really a Coy….it was my dads and his fathers name……im neither of them….. I am interested in writers….like you….who have a different connection….and something in common…..the higher language of Poetry…..not that I think …I….or me and you….or any poet is BETTER….because I don’t……just different……”Birds Of A Feather”….comes to mind…..if I may….how long have you been writing…..how many pieces of work….?….

  4. I guess I want to offer a bit of an insight into my writing…..because you will find some …what might be called CONTROVERSIAL….pieces in my work….controversial in the sense of ….should and why would a professing…Christian write of some matters?…..I had a dear friend ask me the same years ago…..my reply was….I try not to filter it out as it comes….maybe I should….but I don’t…..I went on to say that…..’just because I write about something and it might be perceived as how I really feel or believe about something…doesn’t mean I really do or feel as expressed…..maybe I am trying to say…..its something I have observed….any way keep writing…..Frank……furher something I have observed and is out there….

    1. Thank you Frank! I think I can understand this. There are times I would like to write a certain way but don’t. In my case I do put the filters on. Peace to you and be blessed.
