I Specter Eye

I Specter Eye

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)

__I Specter Eye__

 

Muses mulling my mind’s eye

Views the culling of time nigh

Grievous lulling of crimes cries

 

Crave yearn I

Carry courses cast

Parry forces lashed

Yet still I stand

 Aghast

 

Chronos captured divine sigh

Onus fracture my decry

Opus rupture entwined spy


Hearts awry

Wary ghostly grasp

Weary lonely gasp

Yet I can’t hold

Enclasp





 


I specter eye

This was rather interesting and unlike anything I've witnessed before on this site. I loved the weaving of philosophical literature throughout. It heightened the theme of time. Often, time can only gaze onto us with a hearty sigh as we fight the inevitable and long for what's gone. The inward eye can comprehend, often, what's amiss versus the heart. The "Wary ghostly grasp," is the attempt to grapple with what was and the, "Weary lonely gasp," is the lingering epiphany of what is. I enjoyed reflecting on this piece. Great read.

I spy your specter eye B.Bunny! You discern the space between time, responsibility and one’s life’s work - Chronos..Onus..Opus... contemplative, philosophical, a seer of dreams are you my friend. Uniquely, spectacularly “Bunny” construct. The twists and turns, backwards and forwards of your lyrical lines, like will-o-the-wisps or fireflies, glow with poetic radiance. The beat, rhyme and beautiful alliteration carry us away, softly, musically, to find your personal truths. You let us know you, and for this, we are eternally in your debt. Master Class write Sir Poet.

Your poetry always has a strong beat Bunny and can be recognised anywhere. You have such a unique style and first rate alliteration and choice of language. This is yet another interesting philosophical piece. All power to your pen. A great read for me this evening.

Hide and seek. Does your voice play games with you Bunny?

always scurrying about
can i capture what i see with the pen? not always...there is a trick to it, like catching a trout fly fishing...
timing is everything...inspiration is everything...your style is unique, Bb...i could spot your pieces just from your alliterative style...and almost constant backward phrasing...this has that..sort of like the reverse beat of BTO's "Let it Ride"----
good stuff,
j.

The ghost of people and past times can be front and center in our mind reflective in our eyes. Seeing is believing but musing is wondering. You are a unique and talented poet.

Riders have to experience the journey as we poets experience life...
Such word play as a lyrical and flowing and intreresting piece that makes the reader stop and contemplate and wonder. It feels like time passing as one muses over nothingness with an inertia brought on by boredom perhaps.
