Quietude's repose...‏

Quietude's repose...‏

A Poem by Frieda P

Raining upon my soul's salvation
    spirited winds breaking their levy
agonizing reign of quietude's repose
    whirling typhoons of despair
upheavals of dither's agitation
    fluster'd turbulence plays havoc
      flooded of overflow's emotions, 
mind in a free fall fracas
    blustering temperatures rearrange
            atmosphere's pressure under 
  braggadocio's storm siege      tease
    mood's gauge bent of salvag'd tranquility

Quietude is not always what we hope it to be. It is in the quiet moments that our minds, not otherwise occupied, are as you say:

fluster'd turbulence plays havoc
flooded of overflow's emotions,
mind in a free fall fracas

There is no winning for losing I think.

I love the paradoxes. :) Your poems are too intellectual for me. You need to dumb down sometimes, you know? Haha. I adore this poem, mother nutter.

mind in a free fall fracas... This is a great line, and describes the tone of the whole piece - in the midst of upheaval, we must find the calm...

Thanks so much Rita.
i find this really interesting in an ironic way. When all of these things are actually happening, we forget our own troubles and focus on the destruction (physcial and emotional) that is happening all around us.

when it is peaceful and tranquil nature-wise, then we seem to have too much time to dwell on the raging storms within us.

Love the lines:

flooded of overflow's emotions,
mind in a free fall fracas"
