The Week


Wistful waves
of
fronds
released
from grasps
enduring a
myriad of
oppressions

Jubilant and
ceremonious
preparations

Celebra tory
revolutionary
anticipations

Com munal
fellowship
with
cryptic
explana tions

Exhaustion
filled
prayerful
mind
wrenching
supplications

Pointe d
betrayal
Lacing
Passionate
Exhibiti ons

Conflict
and
discord
through< br>willing
extraditions

The torturous
volley
Of influential flexed
muscles
and
reputations

Ba rbaric
pageantry
birthed out of
degrading
and
dehumanizing
occupat ions

Cruelty
personified
through
dark
artistic
expressions

The explosive quiet
deadening of hopes,
silencing
a joy
rooted
in a
quest
For a
tangible
mortal
reparations

Ann ihilating
physical
kingdom
perceptions
Escaping
entitled
human
thought
limitations

Shedding
every
terminal layer
serving as
spirit
eternally held within
soul obstructions

Encrusted
scales
meltin g
earthen
visual
impairments
Revealin g
the glow
of the
reality
of
ultimate
truth

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
