threnody

Published by ArtingArena on


i scribble in my face, my father_ who found strands of 

my hair in the teeth of my comb,

i remembered when he sewn in the heap in my yard, roses,

bougainvilleas, hibiscuses with their sprouts and petals of reds & pinks.

but that night, he breathed hope into the tomb in which he entombed his face,

his face, kissing the grains of sands & i wrote him a threnody_ a poem, a requiem

which he carries on the crucifix around his neck.

that night, i engraved my face in the mirror which hangs on his tomb, 

i kissed the brittle that lurks there, i knelt & prayed for his portrait to fade

from the lines of my poem.

Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day. It’s always interesting to read through articles from other authors and practice a little something from their sites.

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance.
I must say you have done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads
extremely quick for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!
