as our voices rise

a wavelength of despair

hums of burdens thrust

mankind ungathered

tranced in hypnotic ideation

woeful eyes swell with tears

the last stanza sung –

soul-to-soul self-seeking

crow with the dawn

rejoice in truths of

love and kindness

as our voices rise

wedded are we unconsumed

from sunrise to sunset

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #272

What do you see # 177 – 13 March, 2023

“ Love is patient, Love is kind. It does not envy or boast. It’s not proud, rude, or self-seeking. It is not easily angered and keeps no record of past mistakes. It does not delight in evil. It rejoices in the truth”

    This poem is SO-O deep & so meaningful….I could relate to every word….
    You captured how I (& I suspect many of us) feel about this time in History as things spiral out of control.
    Thank you for a new ‘masterpiece’ poem dear friend!

  4. May our blind eye open to become witnesses for the good of all living things –
    Human and other…

  5. Acting in the now, we have a purpose to fulfill.

    Eugenia, your lovely poem reminds us of the passing of time, and the concluding lines are somehow so satisfying. Each new day arrives with its promise and opportunities. <3

    “Turn, Turn, Turn” is a favorite from my high school days.

    1. Thank you, Cheryl, and I’m glad you could relate to the song. 💖

  6. That poem certainly is a wake up call

    1. As was intended. Thank you, Derrick.

  7. I stopped at ‘last stanza sung’

    Then the intensity of the last two lines brought in a sense of despair.

    1. Thank you, Reena! A sign of the times but there is still hope.

  8. “wavelength of despair” & “tranced in hypnotic ideation”, brilliant lines Eugi! 👌👌👏👏😁😁

  9. If only, it’s true, that the sunrise can, bring about that needed change for a brand new day in this world, but, it, really, doesn’t, because, we humans are, too set in our ways, and we refuse, to, change…but, we can, still, hope, so…

    1. Yes, sometimes we don’t appreciate the beauty around us because we are too busy with ourselves.

  10. Well done. And I love that song. XO
