Blowin' in the Wind (a wind blown away)

A Poem by Gary H

written for Chloe's competition.

Photobucket


life flies in the breeze
letters of love
find themselves muddled
elov
oevl
voel
hoping to land
seeking peace


angels fight devils
devils fight back


war floods in like rain
hurricanes of torture
frighten us all


in a sky of reply
clouds of doubt float by
decisions incomplete
hidden by money
leave sad reflections


thinking back to Bob
singing his song -
answers are here


'blowin' in the wind'


now blown past
in a whirlwind of time


leaving a jangly melody
memories of hope,
freedom, peace
where a breath of air
could once have saved us
now we are too late


judgement day beckons......

This was really awesome, man. It truly reminded me of my past poem, 'Two Ghosts of the Mind.' Battling the thoughts of evil and angelic; going in and out of things, and trying to be stable in the rest of the process; hoping one day it will all just go away, and that you have finally won the huge war. Everything intertwines and comes together in this piece. Beautiful job, i must say, as well as the picture, too!

This is an excellent poem. I especially enjoy the fact that it mentions Bob Dylan (who I believe is arguably one of the greatest lyricists of all time). Nice apocalyptic tone...I agree with it. Great job.

Not sure if this was intended, although from your verbal acumen I can assume it was, each stanza seems to be a complete thought - carried aloft through the poem like leaves scuttering in the breeze - it gave the poem a transience that was delicious, as though if I looked away - I would miss the profound image flitting by...and then....you dropped anchor with the last line. Awesome write.

I love the way you intertwine environmental realities to relate the feelings you have expressed so beautifully. You have a strong, but gentle touch with your words keep up the great writing! ~ Jude xo

CENTRED TEXT LOOKS GREAT TO MY MIND...NICE N BALANCED. I think the first verse is the best and tremble at the thought of being judged. But on the other hand I don't know why. The more we know the less innocent and fresh life seems.

Interesting poem, with an air of almost sadness, but I'm not sure why. I like the way it is written, and the centered font. It fits the poem better.
