‘Noname’ by Richard C Richards

‘Noname’

The moon sits on the owl’s shoulder.

The moon sits on the mountain’s shoulder

On this most unnatural night

As I feel my way among the images.

The owl is made of fire,

There is fire inside the owl,

His feathers sparkle with it.

There is fire within the tree.

The images blur and coalesce

With moon, owl and fire

Until there is nothing,

No image at all.

In the dark clear light of blankness

Only the sound of the owl: When?

When will the images coalesce?

Being a seer with no sight,

Being a god with no right,

Being a bird with no flight

Is damned hard work.

If I had known it was like this

I wouldn’t have gotten into the racket.

Richard C. Richards, circa 1970

‘The Question’ from Poetry MS Volume 1 by E. Reenah McGill

Price: Check on Amazon

‘The Question’

How long do you run the eternal mile?

Do you reach an end?

Is every step a cry against the sky?

Do you reach an end?

Can you reach out, run without a doubt?

Do you reach an end?

Is every post a sign to run and run anow?

Do you reach an end?

Can daisies hold you?

Do birds enfold you?

Even now do you know the end?

They dance and play throughout the day, without a care, joyful of their very existence. Time is suspended, until nightfall…when Sun must go away. Fearful, what will World do in the darkness? Together, a solution is found. A new meaning of life discovered. Will World be triumphant?As World and Sun continue to ensure our survival through their love and light, are we doing enough today to sustain our very existence?
