john hardesty Poems
Creation Of Haiku
There is no brilliance in creating one Haiku my dog composed this.
Long ere creation spurn The stars shone in the heavens, Billions of years they have burned To musing eyes
Custom of truth valued by all, Lies are lies, great or small; Where thy tongue spew in contort, An angel vengefully hears distantly amort;
An Existential Sigh
The freethinker peddles his thoughts of conflicting matters and disillusion distinctions eventually, confronts endogenous distraught.
A man's mistress is paid in modesty, though, a man's wife is paid
The living object basks under the solar dome punished into earth.
The Mercy Seat -new-
The trials of one's squalor So grim and pallor, My anxiety followed me through the door Filled in anguish, subdued and pardoned no more;
The Musician's Pact
Plucking strings, from an ancient instrument invokes a chord of mysterious rhapsody, conjure melodies of distant land, an aria stirs about the lost decadence,
God's Infinite Task
Overwhelms the immoderate mortal, Where He keeps our memories that have passed, When they are buried in that forgotten portal, His omniscient and gathering grace,
An Engram Of Blackness
Firm in my stance, vintage in thought, secured in flesh and bones, never swaying to influence,
The Vigilant Enigma
The riddle of life, a constant game, We live and breathe, only to die in vain, Theosophy sports an interesting view, A Heaven, A Hell, separated by two,
Efflux of Grief
Loam was filled the earth, Millions of years precede her birth; Evolution spirits a cocoon, The chrysalis waits to bloom,
