Sin and Retribution.

A little bit of fun below. I wrote a Nonet for Colleen Chesebro‘s Weekly Tuesday Tanka, and my very talented friend Jane Doherty wrote me a really smart reply in my comments.

I think it works well as a collaborative poem.

Sin . willowdot21

When it all started there were just two

All sparkly, wonderful and new.

They had eyes for eachother

Such joys to discover

Snake then wriggled in

Try this apple

It’s good, she

Ate, too

Late.

Retribution. Jane Dougherty

Too late.

And so it came to pass

Eve was the one got the brains

her punishment

to be the slave of the

ditherer

the unimaginative

yes man

content in his ignorance.

September Music 30

For the month of September I am going to choose a piece of music or song and write a poem or alternative version. Jane Dougherty is doing a September Stanza here. And Kat Myrman is doing September a poem a day Here.

Last day today.

Today’s piece of music is Breathe me by Sia.

My interpretation

Slowly dripping red the droplets of blood hit the ground

The deeper the cut the more relief there is to be found.

Always careful to keep the cuts out of sight

In the bathroom or the bedroom in the dark of night.

The secret kept, the truth unknown

Always the hidden and worsening a darkness grown.

Hassled and bullied all of the time

Slipping under the radar …. left to suffer this insidious crime.

No one understood, no one could be told or trusted

This dirty secret is kept, must tell no one, don’t want to be busted.

Finally no more pain can be taken, it all gets too much

Cut, and cut again, end the agony end the pain. Laying there all night. Found cold to the touch.

Today’s piece of music is Only the Winds by Olafur Arnalds

My interpretation.

Our love transcends all
Through time and space we fall

We are meant to be together

Our love is not just now but forever.

Our eyes meet across the ages

Our story is embossed on its pages.

We pass through hell and glass

We spin through eternity locked in a clasp.

We are now, then and forever

We are one to be apart never.

Today’s piece of music is Mars, from Gustav Holst‘s The Planets.

My interpretation

Heed me I bring war

I shall smite all in my path

I am the War God

I lay waste to all planets

Showing no mercy at all.

Today’s piece of music is Thank You by Alanis Moressette.

My interpretation. A mirror Etheree

Life

We have

Only one

Chance to fulfill

We owe it to God

To do the best we can

No one else lives it for us

Be grateful for the chance to shine

Know that what you have is so devine

This is your only chance to let it work

We are all responsible for our fate

Is that too damn hard to contemplate.

Don’t blame it on everyone else

It’s my life and I’ll own it

Thank you God for letting

Me see the whole truth

You have opened

My closed eyes

Now I

Know

Today’s piece of Music is China by Tori Amos

My interpretation.

I step forward you step back

Dancing around each other, loosing track.

Fingers brushing

Thoughts causing blushing

I step forward you step back , the rejection is crushing.

Too many people here

I shall look the fool I fear

I reach for you but you’ve already gone

I bow my head in shame,

Cover my ears they’re play our song.

Falling slowly from the tower

For a second I feel a rush of power.

No pain yet, maybe I’ll sprout wings and fly

Sadly this real life you will not catch me . You’ll go and let me die.

OH! OH! THE PAIN, ALL PAIN NO GAINS

I am feel the blood leaving my veins.

Will you turn back will you run and take my hand

Will you hell, you barely acknowledge me,I don’t register in your plan.

I step forward you step back

Dancing around each other, loosing track.

Fingers brushing

Thoughts causing blushing

I step forward you step back, rejection is crushing.

Today’s piece of music is In Memory of Trees by Enya.

Mighty Forrests once covered this earth

Nature was green and she knew her worth

Then came man, the trees remember this.

The trees gave us shade and cover

They protected us like a mother

Giving us air to breathe

Yet we slay them, that’s hard to believe.

Trees live so long they hold their memories safe

Sadly they are being killed at a pace.

To fly

Break free from earth

Escape into the sky

Be the best I can share my worth

Aspire

Today’s piece of music is Landslide by Fleetwood Mac.

Here is my interpretation

Age brings more than just aches and pains

The hope is to have fewer losses and more gains

When you’ve climbed the mountain fate brings you down.

As you reach the summit the landslide brings you down.

Your body no longer seems your own

Your youth and vigour seem to have flown.

You just reach the pinicale of your life

You’ve been lover, mother, grandma and wife

When nature brings you to ground

And the landslide gets you down.

The story of your life can’t be changed

There is no going back to rearrange.

We all reach the Autumn of our time

We all tell ourselves all will be fine.

When nature brings you to ground

And the landslide gets you down.

Today’s piece of Music is The Whole of the Moon. By The Waterboys.

My interpretation

You have have eyes that see

Life in all its glory

In the shadow the view eludes me

I have only half the story

Grabbing life you take it and it grows

I am wading through the mire

You float where the river flows

Like you I was once on fire

Life a thing to be won

Keep as you are my son .
