Summarily Missing …

(This is quite long. For those who tire easily, I apologize. For those who enjoy long pieces, enjoy!)

Fraternal continuity
Where, oh where?

As we pursue our wayward lives

in rain and sun’s suspended reigns

what we do and where we go

is summarily missing


Stranded on beaches of never there

where swimming hard in ocean waves

caress of warmth and cold enhanced

births absent minded thinking


Flowing strongly through battling breezes bottled to explode

beyond mountain’s cresting and hollow field

traversing passageways unpaved paths

leading to and from expected gold


Missing empty air as empty air is filled

head and body sectioned as different beings

in errors time when clocks are struck

reaching incredible height on nature’s way


From one burgeoning spot through splitting winds

upon one hesitating step after another

eyesight sees what is seen at first

extracting that which delights the senses


Missing from one golden sense in graying garden

entwining forms come together in anarchy

where seedlings of furious favor begin

in legion ever searching for strengthening hands


As screaming trains collide from urgency often felt

tracks intersection gets overly remote

erasure combines with replanting vigor

where collision and coercion are minuscule


Auto play rewinds as patterns coexist

paying tolls to former raging thought

passions come to ride the inside

where celibate remuneration is missing


Seasoned and re seasoned with actively brought spices

as they of their own accord entwine

be-knight of Kings and Queens giving guard

as rallying in staying dance they play


Celibate skies range over canyon minds

where mind and brain and eyes enjoin

coercing that which was never thought

to be born among skeletal misty images


Reigning resistance becomes of and with itself

missing those flagrant inconsistencies

before as well as after noted scenes

pulverize pacification in darting darkest eyes


Behoove that which visits come

throughout misty paths occurring

birthing passive partiality run

beyond words so vain so slurring


Outside where fancy revalues itself

creaking craving willing well

solving interruption in all dissolves

its passions interpret some sweeping quell

I have been writing since 1967, basically as an emotional release, but in the last few years I have become interested in creation of forms as well as being socially accepted by my peers. So, here I am. Relate to me, please!

    Nicely penned work Donald. It is not too long, in fact it is the normal length for posts here. A minimum of 300 words is strongly suggested for a good SEO score, so you did well since you are just a little over 300 words. Well done.

    PS: I changed the category to Poetry with the sub-category Free Verse. You had Creative Writing, which does not include poetry, and Contemporary/Alternative Poetry, which is the wrong sub-category for this post.

      Thank you, Phyllis. And for your help, also. Categories I don’t know from categories, so the help is appreciated.
