Robert Trakofler&lightsong



 *



How can I tell you

when my lines lack the locution

and my whisper is as effete

as the words to my ghostly outline

is it enough

to touch your brow

with my ethereal fingers

and relish in your visage

when mine is

but a cold chill

a glimpse of déjà vu

like an oddly familiar fragrance

from a fading memory.

 

At this moment,

what I see is the beauty

from those precious whispers

that make me now

word the memories.

Tell me of grace

through a heart that beats with gratitude.

I love violets and the leafs

They remind me of You,

The You, kind and mighty

more and enough,

like my mornings' view.

 

I am here now… as I was then

Animate is my sway.

Yet my touch is still as ineffectual

As my pen stroke

But not my resolve

nor the intimation

of crave

that brought me back…

 

Here is me, now is You.

that's how

our pens come alive.

think not of loss

nor of lack

a fragile touch can be as genuine

as the first buds

craving spring

growing you back, in slow

earnest paces.

 

That ubiquitous crave

empyrean and earthly

between life and the grave

it exists universally

the root of all divine

is an insatiable mercy

and I stand here now

as I did then

and I reach for your brow

that was heaven sent

and for a moment

I fill the yearning…

 

My brow glows

my poetry animates,

to blossom for you;

“Women give birth,

and in their men’s rebirth…

they resurrect."

There is a poetic duet made in heaven. The softness of this piece, the power, which I know is a contradiction, but it is there. The want soaring above the clouds whispering to those below and the comfort, the safety of being held within the arms of one who would defend you to the end. A wonderful collaboration of two amazing poets.

between life and grave...yes. We almost lost our dear Bunny...my brother Bunny...
but he has revived and with your collaboration, has ascended to write beautiful poetry.
This touched me deeply...two voices as one...a spiritual connection to each other and to the readers.

The vernacular of poetry is vast! I could almost visualize Robert reaching across the distance to wipe your brow of the sweat of life and death in the labor of re-birth. Takes two to consumate the union of pens in poetic intercourse. You almost lost your friend and the 'bad bunny' hopped back to life. Just a coincidence that this is posted on a day we give thanks for what we have? The interesting thing about reading this poem is assigning each of the stanzas to one or the other and how each could have been written by the other. The thoughts join to become one. This is a powerful poignant poem!! We crave life and friendship. Happy anniversary to both of you!

Wow! Just wow! This poem is written in such harmonious way that takes the reader into the depth of a strong friendship. There were many words which I had to check the dictionary for and it reminded me of a couple of years ago when I wanted to read some of Shakespeare's plays in English. My vocabulary was upgraded:). I'm like a child looking at Homer's Iliad lol .
Happy anniversary to your friendship guys.
Wish you two all the best

Your part is pure poetry but that other guys stuff is just horrible! Lol this was a fun write:) I love that song too and your porch’s view makes for a beautiful combination!!!! The one thing I do remember about being dead is that the only sense that I felt that was the same as being alive was the sense of crave and strangely writing this brought out that memory:)
