In constant arms of changing seasons rolling
as downstream rivers.
Or cascading as waterfalls.
of thrown sludge.
Recycling of poisoned cesspools
moves sloth slow in the minds of children wanting.
Or like a sled speedy
on steep hills towards cliffs
into deep silent darkness
of this unknowing knowing.

For ones in agony aching
or broken down in abject slavery
to paralyzing illness
as alcohol or drugs numbs conscious waning
of time’s precious presence.
though actors or poets command the stage
mouthing previous proverbs or inciting revolutions
derived from famous mentors
canonized or plagerized. Their words or actions rebirthed from books, journals, magazines;
unearthed from dusty libraries.
Individuals old and poor traversingtheir aisles of fossils and relics;
while cafes and hot spots retrieve memorable events
from the clouds
flowered or weedy graves
of human gods
Mists appearing and disappearing.
A sad occurrence in this organic domain.
Astronauts shoot past gravity
into beautiful heavenly lights
Man’s intelligence and persistence,
walls and barriers
But at other times,
our still marvelous earth
greed replaces natural love
of babies born and coddled at a leisurely pace.
Older ones, widows and orphans
many wealthy shamefully overlook.
As, foreclosures and divorces increase sadly,
as loyalty becomes a luxury
no longer a necessity.
Easy to forsake;
tragically the impatient ones forsook
But, our young and naïve
contrive to mimic
Peaking like fireworks.
Be the ones to hire then fire
until the year they eagerly retire; more sooner than later
then their idols.
Yet, like them
to unwillingly weaken, darken, and expire.
Their memories too recorded,
but above the clouds.
Yes, past personalities and endeavors

heart and mind

on an Earth
causing others to stray–
and all in
the Kingdom’s way

Righteous and unrighteous
Will be reestablished.

To be redefined
As they come to know Him
or better know him.
The goal: Him to seek and find
Not in imitation of leaders who
purport sincerity of meekness and kind.
For, like money felt, smelt, scrutinized
by hands, ears, eyes, noses that know
counterfeit fails to pass as genuine quality;
Time reveals all.
Authentic like the moon consistently… Truth Glows.

like the shifting shadows.”
By Him We Want
To BE Known.

I know you’

It is time to develop myself by learning something new.
Your task is to teach me things or aspects I don’t already know about a historical person, who has for some reason impressed you. Even better if the person is someone I was not previously conscious of, but whom I *should* know in order to possess a better understanding of humankind.
The person in question can be an intellectual, an artist, a writer, a poet, a scientist, a political or religious leader, an inventor, an entrepreneur, or anyone else of significance. Doesn’t need to be all famous. But it should be someone particular, who existed and whom I can search for and find information about if I wanted.
Your poem should demonstrate some more insight than what is superficially known of some great man or woman. Preferably, someone whose life or works you have at one point studied to the point of an eerie feeling that his/her ghost whispers memories to you.
Make me feel you wanted me to know about this person. © a year ago, Lucretia Mccloud
