Poetry or More...

richardmurray

1,113 views

I successfully published a poetry book, i entitled, Poetry or More. Now, the original plan I used is to place three year in one book, text side audio. Unfortunately, a 100MB or 100,000KB limit exist on ebooks that can be loaded <that is fair cause that equate to a huge amount from raw text>. Thus, I made four version, one is only text that include all the years. The other three are partials: 2015-2016, 2017 January to June, or 2017 July to December. 
The text only includes all the poem stories, poem of the months or seasons. I placed the links to each Poetry or More variant below, and if you want an excerpt I kept the December solstice 2017/December 2017/December Poem Story 2017/July Aphelion 2017 poem blog entries. All is linked below. Enjoy.

July Aphelion 2017 

Listen to "January Perihelion 2017" on Spreaker.

Farthest from the light 
Is the ancient under water wheel 
Seahorse, crab, anchovy, or like, dance in it 
The last to it's kind 
It's descendent's, kill or betray the old life 
...Long before man, or when dinosaur's began 
Earth made the ancient plant's 
To play side all other children 
But... came a change 
Earth became cloudy, the sunlight distant in essence 
And, nearest penultimate ancient plant's died 
But the heart from Earth, did not want all to die 
And embrac'd the ancient under water wheel 
To usher in the dinosaur 
And, it surviv'd, to today, deep in the water 
Far from the sun , alway's

December 2017 Poem 

 

December

 I hear some speak to maturity 

why am I not convince? 

do I have access to a wise diary 

am I living behind a fence 

nothing literal or from prison is about me 

sole support from my sense 

kin to all common water's  

born from being many schnee 

each winter, the former liquid chime, Never  Again! 

On the craterous surface, will we be sow 

Under only the sky, above all other life, is our remaining time 

... then the sun rise, and maturity prove elusive again 

... I hear few speak to possibility 

why do most shun if sense 

do they have no craft they fee 

are they surround from total absence? 

nothing craftal or annihil they don't see 

all support from their mince 

kin to all warstarter's 

born from inherent malflee 

each winter, the sanguine rhyme, Always Again! 

In the cavernous channels, will we be sow 

Under only the hide, between all other life, is our remaining time 

... then the lids rise, and possibility prove all coming again 

...Can a possible be immature 

Is immaturity a craft from some possible 

to reject all other possible 

Do the questions prove sense?

December Solstice 2017 

Happy December Solstice. Mama Earth in less than a moment tilt her axis farthest from parallel to the Sun, more than any other time save one between the Perihelions. May those in the northern hemisphere, have a collective , communal warmth, may those in the southern hemisphere, have a energetic smooth cool. 

 

A once virgin prince, now white hair king
Ponder to her tomb, the Last Rose, from Hadinchi
On his regal seat, in a cold empty hall
He remember, the fairies dance, on all the jewel pall's
No longer their sprinkle's, in this long fall
He leave his seat, stride slow on broke floor
He see her portrait, made when good time's were more
A goblin weave'd her skin, from hairs on the amber boar
No longer it make step, in this long fall
Open the hall door, and on to the mausoleum
The path shimmer or shine, throughway, to where his woe's sum
From glass depicting her life, molded from dragon fire's, or jitu hum's
No longer they breath or song, in this long fall
Finally, to her body rest, in grandeur timeless
A statue made, from the king mind or hand, to her likeness
Eight ninth from centuries, on the craft, and still a jumble mess
No longer can he remake, in this long fall
And fall... the white hair king, crying My Love! my love...
Time smooth over, and none recall, or only hear whisper, in winter
To the once virgin prince or Tamawari, his lover
...But, the rarest whisper, say a black dove cry in a spring, will end their leter

December 2017 Poem Story 

 

 

Somewhere, or sometime, in existence 
In a temporal expanse 
Tween cluster's from star's or nebula's  
On a planet from like set 
Aside a beach, part to an isle in the caribbean, is waterfall's 
Where she sit 
I don't know her name 
Have not ask'd about 
Been here a few day, and still not approach 
I have no game, or malice play 
A simple joy, watching the sun, shadow, wind, or mist mix, about her, or her dress 
But... time is near done 
The time this somewhere 
Me no romeo, her no juliet 
Nor us two ship, to make a living idol or gret or regret 
Only a woman enjoying the sun, shadow, wind, or mist, mix about her, or her dress 
Or a man enjoying where she sit, honorable distance, no persistence 
Two pleasant, quiet, honest...

@Troy a company as large as Rakuten did not need to change the url's from kobo, I hope they map the old url's when or if they choose to change their addressing scheme in the future

:) thanks brother... haha, well not that many. I know some writers who are very profligate. As a storyteller i overthink plot, so I dont allow for stories to continue on and on, characters move on, they die or they have nothing left to display, in my worlds. For example, I would never write the purge as it is. I would have written, the black character in the first one die outside the house while the white family discusss the purge and the white kid get killed inside, 1/2 hour story maximum. I think too many writers push plots to be longer that put characters out of logic or common sense.

There are times when an artist expresses themselves for the sake of ego & status. Then there times when the artist leaves their body, and allows the soul to do the work. These words that you have molded, not written, have become vessels of wisdom which the reader is able to drink from. Thank you quenching the thirst of many in a dry world.

@richardmurrayThe links are not working for me to see the model to pick for the poll. And your response to @Troy was mad hilarious to me especially the comment about the purge. 😂🤣😂🤣

 

And I wonder what you would think about my plot to my story as mine is a trilogy. 😂😊😊

 

Okay, I voted the one where I can see the picture. Jessica is mad pretty.

@sabine ziya Try now, consider the words too... 

oh thank you:) i am an honest storyteller and I nearly hate filler plotting from what I create. 

 

Well, I don't judge artists from my own philosophy, at least, i don't try too:) I try to see what they are doing

 

oh ok:)

Okay, the image to the first selection still didn't work. I'm happy with my selection as I like the image and words that goes with it.

 

I'm glad you're honest about plot.  Lol. My story has a lot of twists to it and I'm telling multiple love stories as well as intrigues. I'm close to the 80,000 mark and I'm not close to the end yet. Somewhat close, but no cigar yet.

@sabine ziya  Ok, I placed the image at the bottom to this post. Cool:) 

 

Sound like a masterpiece Sabine. Remember, no story ever end, just a part on the infinite road. You will know when you have finished the part you see.

Hmmm, she's very gorgeous, but quite naked.  Lol. I like Lola as well,  but I still like my selection.  Thank you.

 

I don't know if my story is a masterpiece,  but it's a story that has morphed while writing. I hope it gives others the same excitement as it did me. I can't wait till it's done and I can sit back and read it like a reader. I always wanted a story that encompasses a lot of my interests.
