This thread is actually inspired from the other topic "Favourite Poems Of All Time" by KhaleeqaIDRUS.

But the difference is that here you enter YOUR OWN CREATIONS!!!
Please enter only your genuine creations!

So let it begin! Boo hoo!

Here goes the first one -

Eternal...none?!!

Beauteous rose! So elegant you appear,
Symbol of friendship and love you bear,
But with time...your beauty shall sear!

Supreme sun! Your fire blazes the sky,
Honor and glory you signify,
But at the end of the day...you shall die!

Silver moon! Your pearly light adorns the night,
Behold great beauty and grandeur you might,
But fade away you shall...within a fortnight!

Sturdy rock! With stupendous grit you stand,
And your strength is not unknown to us,
But with nature's lashes...you too shall weather!

Things these are, of great strength and beauty,
Yet, they can't eternal be!
Ultimate truths, if these are not,
Then what is the truth, which eludes me?

It is then in my ear, a voice whispers -

"What value hold, strength and beauty,
If they eternal be?
Eternity weakens the strength and uglifies beauty,
And I AM the truth, which you fail to see!"

I wrote a poem some years ago and put it on a site. Here it is:

Winning is fierce and losing is a force
to let your enemy out of the course

You don't take a risk to let them win
you always win since you begin

What is the reason to be so brave?
Just to put them all in the cave?

To set a hit you need a blame
so that others would not claim

No matter what the scene of blame,
how well-fitting is the frame?

A reason, a chatter; a set of matter
a blame you claim proves you better

I was just trying to make one ><" Kinda of bashful but I won't miss this interesting topic for the world! ><" Hehe.

By : Khaleeqa Idrus - Do you see?

Back then you see,
Clouds looked fleecy, bluish,
Matter-of-factly there were,
Birds flying, freely, energetically.

Back then you see,
Right to left,
Back to forth,
East to west,
North to south,
Did you see the greenly beauty?

Back then you see,
Honeysuckle all over the place,
On hills there you see,
Greenish firs, evergreen maples.

In 20 years, 50 years to come,
Could you envisage how the world would be?
Do you even already realize?
The world is stoning?

In 20 years, 50 years to come,
Could you imagine how the world would be?
Do you even realize?
Birds are there,
In the dark and dusty cloud,
Flying unhealthily?

Stop whining,
“Oh the world is so hot!”
Stop buzzing,
When you never thought of working for the antidote.

If you know Sathya Sai Baba.. I read a book of his discourses named 'Mind & its Mysteries'. It has a famous line 'Mind is a bundle of thoughts'.
On that base I composed a poem. This is how it goes.

Mind is a huge bundle of thoughts.
Thoughts of all bonds & all knots.
With tremendous speed & fluidity,
It becomes a sun or a spot.

Mind is stream that flows all time,
With no specific way or line.
Its all the things you remember,
& all that you forgot.
Mind Is A Bundle, Bundle Of Thoughts.

Mind is the mirror,
Mirror of all influences,
Of all the happenings,
& all the experiences.
Its all that you missed & all that you got.
Mind Is A Bundle, Bundle Of Thoughts.

Mind is like a coin,
With its two sides.
Sometimes it helps,
Sometimes it misguides.
Mind is the shelf of both evil & God,
Mind Is A Bundle, Bundle Of Thoughts.

Mind is the proof
Of how much you have evolved,
Of the success,
& the queries unsolved.
But mind is a mirage that exists not.
Mind Is A Bundle, Bundle Of Thoughts.


Hope You Liked This One.

Good to read all the poems. There's always one more...Here is a tritina I wrote recently...It involves a formal sequence of 3 sets of 3 lines and a last line called an envoi...end words of each line are repeated in the following way:
1 2 3 - End words of lines in first tercet.
3 1 2 - End words of lines in second tercet.
2 3 1 - End words of lines in third tercet.
(1 2 3) - Words contained in the final line.


SOLITARY TRITINA

A life of solitude
The chosen alternative
To corporate power.

The struggle for power
Ending in the solitude
Of a prison with no alternative.

Accept the alternative
While you have the power
To enjoy a little solitude.

Be solid in solitude with alternative selections of solar power.

In This Day

In this day, we must do well,
this we must do for ourselves,
we must do well for others,
and we must do this because,
we are the people who would be true.

In this day we must do well.
this we must do for there is much ill,
we must do this without fail,
for the ill that is, is lie
we are the people who would be true.

In this day we must do well
we are duty bound, in blood honor,
for people to suffer is loathsome woe,
we must rise above what was, to become what can be,
For we are the people who would be true.

In this day we must do well
for we would dry the tears of pain,
lay rest the fears of change, reach for the future,
for ourselves, for each other, and for our children,
that we may be, and be becoming, all that human can be,
For we are the people who would be true.

In this day, do well, we must,
we must learn again, each other to trust,
we must rekindle hope in our hearts,
we must fill our eyes with this vision
and with faith, through conviction, in love,
free ourselves from the lies of the dollar sign eyes,
for united we must stand and bring change to this land,
for many to suffer, for the greed of the few, puts lie to.
We are the people who would be true.


For the unjustness of the suffering,
for the love of our lives,
and for the sake of the children we doom by our slothful inaction,
allow the winds of change to once again bring power to the people!

I'm not sure if I should leave it stand as it is in blue, I originally included the above but, came to feel it needed reworked it it were to be included.

MUSINGS ON THE PENDULUM OF LIFE
While on an imaginary train journey and to the beat of a train
from verse two…vary tempo.
.
by Peter Hewett 2002


Warm blows the gentle breeze across the new mown grass
Cold lies the form beneath.
Bright shines the early morning sun o’er the graveyards past
Dark the coffin in its sheath.
Light and dark warmth and cold, Life and death young and old.
Ceaseless change, boring routine, Athletic body crushed spleen.

The pendulum swings the pendulum sings. Back and forth fail and fight.
The pendulum swings the pendulum wings. To and fro, black and white.
Peace and war rim and core. Joy and sadness health and sickness.
Want and plenty less and more. Kind and cruel curse and bless.

Back and forth, back and forth, To and fro, to and fro.
Unrelenting no recourse. Constant movement constant flow.
Love and hate, save and waste. Brash and mellow red and yellow.
Slow and haste set and paste. Growth and fallow kind and callow.

So it goes with this and that. Him and her clear and blur.
Dog and cat gloss and matt. Smooth and burr leave and stir.
Weak and strong short and long. Constant motion constant rhythm.
Pain and pleasure right and wrong. Mend and join split and schism.

Tick tock delight and shock. Ding dong here and gone.
And again and again. Pleasure and pain pleasure and pain.
Life and death life and death. Faith and hope faith and hope.
Life and death life and death. Try and cope try and cope.

TO AN ETHEREAL MAIDEN

By chance we met, though our visages a mystery remain,
The words we exchange like an ambrosia tastes to our lips,
And I can't barely wait to ogle your slim and gracious form.
I despair when you delay the pleasure of your messages,
And then like a shipwrecked sailor I head for the shore,
In search of the utopia of a lost bottled letter,
tossed by the sea to reach me by the sheer force of chance and love,
What a sweet-sour spell have thou cast upon me?
I remain intrigued as to what the future may have in store for us,
But that uncertainty is a most delightful incentive,
To live, to die, and to ascend the blissful stairs towards the heavens of your lips,
I will go to any lenghts just to slightly feel the breath of your soul caressing mine.

Anyone in love, no matter how illiterate, can be a poet, if not of note a least of heart. But pain and suffering are the spurs upon which most writers are incited to pen their creations.

And here is my own write on love -

An Angel from Heaven

One evening, i find myself dreaming on pleasant shore,
Thus in a state of bliss i compose this score.
Sitting here about an angel i dream,
Who is leading me into the heaven's realm.

Her smile is like a crescent moon,
Which can make any guy croon;
Her eyes twinkle like a star,
Huh...they are the biggest puzzle from afar;
She moves so gracefully, just like a slender river,
That sends my heart into a wild quiver.

In her full bloom she looks like a pretty mermaid,
In whose presence an aura of breathtaking beauty does pervade.
Looking at her to me my thoughts do evade,
And from then on raging in my heart is this epic crusade...

That one day i know...
The power of my sublime love to her will persuade,
One day i know...
That this day dreamer will marry the beautiful mermaid!

On the same lines...

Lesson of Love

Lessons in my life though i had learned many,
But not the one that was more important than any.
Yes, still a lesson there was that i had never learned,
It was that of love which in my heart had never burned.

A seemingly meaningless life i lived,
In woods of loneliness i did dwell.
Yes, my heart still lay in dark,
For love had yet failed to make its mark.

Then one day...
In this withered garden flowers of love did bloom,
Which wiped out all of my life's gloom.
Yes, i met an angel who conquered my heart,
And hence my journey with love did start.

From then on...
My heart doesn't beat...it just chants her name,
And my breath whispers the same!
My soul, that i once owned, is now her's,
Sublime love for her in my heart, now i do nurse!

Oh lord!
I thank you for teaching me...
A lesson which i always wanted to learn.
And giving me...
A treasure which i always craved to earn.

MUSINGS ON THE PENDULUM OF LIFE

Quite an intense poem! I like its rhythm and the way you focus on the inescapable eternal structures of life - without leaving out faith and hope as being the driving powers that urge us to go on. Well done! Have you got some more?

Sunshine. Thanks for your observant remarks. I have many. Here is another

INNER BEAUTY
By Peter Hewett 2001


When first a weathered leaf does fall
Upon earths carpet green
And subtle changes work their way
Through hedgerow field and dene
Tis’ then we see our aged summer turn her face
And welcome sister autumn with all her grace.


There, see how gently summer gives up the race
And cedes to autumn her life and place
Then she, with rich adornment and outward beauty,
Covers death with her mask of gloss
And with glorious shades of red brown and gold,
Pays recompense for summers loss

But now when winter puffs her cheeks
Frosts come and rains pour down;
That fragile garment soon floats away
And summers seen in true light of day
Tis’ then we see the death of season in clarity
And understand old age and death in its reality.

How different the face of man’s old age
And troubled march to death
No outward beauty to attend his dying days
Nor glorious splendour to herald the passing of his ways
For him no gentle ceding ones earthly place
Nor entering through death’s door with grace.



But now every line and every furrow
Upon the care worn face
Steals beauty’s gifts of pearly skin
And soft and gentle curves.
Then youth’s loveliness decays on living frame
And upright body becomes bent and lame.

Wherein then lies the beauty of man’s old age
And the softening of his loss
What fruitage like unto autumns glory
Shall accompany his passing days
Inner beauty. Wrought upon the forge of life’s lessons
Wisdom. Gained enduring bitter sessions.

These give to men who yield with grace
A glorious upright inner face
A beauty down beneath the skin
More to autumns dress akin.
Humilities triumph over arrogance and pride
The outward garment of old age cannot hide.

So you so young who see the aged and the lame
Look not upon the outward signs alone
But see beyond and look beneath
The bent and wrinkled frame.
Then. See autumn’s beauty in all its glorious hues
And give to those who walk to death; the honour and the dues

Mysterious child of the waves,
your appearance overwhelms
even those most hardened men
above your ocean realm.

You swim among the dolphin,
and splash beneath the sea.
Your world is one of mystery
unknown to those like me.

You know not of the dangers
the world beyond you yields,
and never dream of walking
on sandy shores or fields.

Gliding softly with the swells
of blue and green below.
You frolic with the jellyfish
in their luminescent glow.

The jewels and glitter you adorn,
found treasures that you reap.
Trinkets, shells, gems and stones
scattered remnants of the deep.

One finds it hard to fathom
the freedom you must feel,
clinging to the wings of rays,
playing tag among the seals.

A world of beauty, none compares.
No need to conceal nor disguise,
the innocence that lies within,
this girl with ocean eyes.
