Kens poem - poetry
How wonderfully sweet to be a dweller
dwelling on the road of goodbye.
Bittersweet tears fall as I think
of all the spaces I'll never see,
all the faces I'll never know,
all the joys I'll never share,
as I head for the unknown.
I have lived life as best I could,
met challenges head on,
drawing dilution from an unseen source.
You cannot come with me on this journey
you can only stand and watch,
sometimes the more arduous task.
I know what I must do
and I will give for my part a voice
drawn from the hidden depths of my being.
June 1, 2003

"I heard what you said, Red. Yet, I have to disagree.
Poems have another cores, or so I believe, and can only be structured well for a variety of abstract language-heart beats; like all counselors are not made for all clients, so all poems are not made for the same person, or purpose; when we read we all have our likes and dislikes; I do not essentially know what poetry is per se, but I do know what the excellence of poetry has, and great poetry is close to an illusion?it carries an echo I do believe-figurative yes, at best, and questionable yes, by far. Here are five poems I've in recent times wrote, all with a another core, focus and style.

Memoirs of a Wastelands Rim [a Poem: now in Spanish and English]
Memoirs of a Wasteland's RimIt still was light when she paused at the wasteland's rim- Over, the rim rest like a sleeping brute, a stiff frame Adjacent to the blue where early stars hung like oil lamps Hanging from old beams and shade?the impassive frame Her foothold jammed the beams, as she had fallen onto it Alone, she watched the forenoon, climbing about her A rolling stone woman, discernible by life, and at an angle dreams With advent of hurt and molded muscle on her face Her be included carved anti the made of wood frame, She tried to jump, and lost her balance, execution like a bird Now sipping the gloom in the ledge and devastated hopes She yielded ahead of the lethargic early payment of sunset Blood dripped, with her dying darkness And a red moon hurled a flame across The dark clouds, burning during the sky The littered sky above her?Crossing the valley's floor her eye absorbed it Rocky images, main points Thrusting herself up audaciously from to the ledge The painted break of day blushed over the rim Her brows and nose, face aligned with the sandstone stone Massive injuries was charming form, Her profile hovering so languidly crosswise the sun It was too great a task-to die alone?she wished now She had not jumped?a thousand feet below, yet to go. Too much for any woman in a lost world Out of the weak wood her mind had peace; She knew soon it would all be over-alas Mute and protesting adjacent to life's uselessness A narrow path lay below her meager body Between death and attainment, a careless foot The rocks beneath her weakening, she plunged Plunged to her death, in the statue hands of the valley Thinking of it, as she fell, assessment with a smiled, Saying, looking up-dead ahead of her echoes: 'Time is short?time is short?time is short!' When they found her, her face was brave of falling.
