Ciaran Quirke Poems
Death Series 5 - Death IS
Death is the irreversible cessation of life. Death is a complete change in the status of a living entity.
Love Hurts - Like a Rose
Love hurts like a rose, Seeming instantly attractive, It too has it's thorns. They hurt, they sting and burn,
The sun yawns wearily and creeps quietly beyond the western horizon, And the moon jumps promptly
Shapely and curvaceous lips, Protruding at intervals to each other, Circling, entranced, around it's nectar eclipsed, They protect from an unwanted interloper.
Life (La Vie - Original in French)
Life In a small home, the family stays. - The children carry the clothes of life.
Death Series 7 - An Ending of a Beginnin...
At the end of an ending, is an ending of an ending, Which infinitely finishes a finishing flourish of a finite resource. At the beginning of a beginning, is a beginning of a beginning,
Death Series 6 - Listen To Me
“No more” I told them, “No more! ” Would they listen... “No more” they cried “No more! ” Would I listen...
The rose stands proud and tall, A sight for all to see, Not one petal will it leave fall, Bringing no action of misery.
Raindrops A Necessity?
Raindrops fall quietly by, While sun shall sleep behind a layer of gray moving through the sky, Moistening the dear crisp air.
The Old Woman
She would sit in her wicker chair, A white apron draped across her knees, Her hands rested there, with rosary beads strung between her fingers.
Death Series 4 - Time III (Snow)
Drifting ever down unheeded, Mere fragments of blanket above, All woolen blankets do untangle As time wears on, remorseless.
Death Series 3 - Time II
To transcend earthly weary chains to heavens beckoning gates, To wait for times unwavering end.
Death Series 2 - Time I
Watch as the sun shall descend upon thee, Making mortal of immortal, Beckoning times end.
Death Series 1 - Life's Essence
Worry not, my son, I shall be near, Though fate permits destiny to win.
