lifetime, Poetry by catherine hsu

Genre: Sad, Hurt, Life, Hope

lifetime
catherine hsu

it’s six o’clock
she hears the whistle
a pause in time
it speeds past
in a flurry of smoke.
she closes her eyes,
waits for the wind,
and leaves it behind.

another day
it’s three o’clock
she feels the metal
bare feet on iron
she dances alone
to soundless music.
she picks up a pebble,
puts it in her pocket,
and moves along.

another day
three thirty this time
she shields her eyes
against the glare
it is almost beautiful.
she gives a grim smile,
reaches for a pebble,
and walks away.

another day
it’s four o’clock
she treads lightly
on the rocky path
the stones dig into her feet
blood or sweat she cannot tell
but she hobbles home again.
with a pebble in her shoe.

another day
four thirty now
she only walks
with shivers and chills,
but before she goes,
she pauses and thinks,
and takes a pebble.

another day
now it’s five
she sits there quietly,
and stares at the track,
she almost does it,
but at the last minute,
she picks up a pebble,
and leaves once more.

another day
it’s five thirty now
she sits there again,
but then she lays
down on the path
and stares at the stars
and if only for a moment
she is gone.

today is it
it’s six o’clock
she hears the whistle
a pause in time
it speeds past
in a flurry of smoke.
she closes her eyes,
waits for the wind,
and leaves everything behind.

To Timothy, Poetry by Axane Sand

GENRE : relationship

To Timothy by
Axane Sand

My feet, my feet
Are always borderline
Never able to choose
If they should fall or climb
To the right, to the left
Up or down there’s no sign
No little help to show me
Which way to decide

My eyes, my eyes
Aren’t along the same line
Not able to agree
If they are blue or blind
To the trees, to the sea
Over and here, there’s no light
Not enough golden green
To open my pupils

My heart, my heart
Can’t hear you on the line
Not able to debate
If you are wrong or right
Through the voice, through the sound
Empty or full, nothing’s bright
No good intonation
To restart inner beats

You have taken
What was rich inside
Leaving me my lonely poor side
That’s why I’m standing on the line
I’m standing on the line

Hoping you are borderline too

Golden Legend, Poetry by Richard Van Holst

Genres: Funny; Religion; Cats

Description; Suggested by a poem called “Pangur Bán” found in the margins of a manuscript and written around the ninth century by an unknown Irish monk.

Golden Legend by Richard Van Holst

I used to like the noise

and stalk his stirring quill

and he would smile, until

the day I stepped in ink

and pattered golden foot-

prints down his page. And then

my monk was cross and grabbed

me with harsh hands. But soon

he took a rag and wiped

my yellowed paws—he said

it looked as if I’d fished

for sun‘s last light in pools

at vespers. Then he stroked

my fur with kinder touch.

He kept me a long time

from climbing on his desk,

but now we both have learned

our passions to restrain.

Now I am much more calm,

wise in the ways of words,

content to watch him scratch

with merest twitch of tail.

I sleep when I get bored.

Then I get up and stretch

and wander off to see

what Brother Cook has in

the pot. Mayhap there’ll be

a bit of Friday fare.

Of course I take good care

then not to get too close

for Cook, he kicks sometimes.

But I am swift to dodge!

He got me only once

and then the Abbot frowned

and made him read to me

out of a gilt-edged tome.

It was about a monk

who preached to all the birds

portrayed in vivid hues—

you’d swear those fowls could fly

but there they stayed to hear

as still as roosting hens.

Oh how I wish I’d been

to hear that holy man,

for such a homily

would much improve my soul.

But soft! There goes a mouse!
