Literature In Verse
I am by no means an E. E. Cummings, Maya Angelou or William Shakespeare, but I do enjoy the word play and literary expression of emotion.
As alluded to in the above Tweet, my latest poem was inspired by the music of Ulrich Schnauss, which I find to be beautifully dream worthy. With that said, the poem is not about anyone in particular.
If you are interested, my latest poem is featured right after the jump.
A Single Drop
In the beginning there is but one solitary tear,
that escapes from the lines of laughter,
lines which yearn to prevent its travel.
Slowly it begins to glide over a mound of soft cheek,
until finally it reaches the end of a cliff like jaw line.
There it waits, contemplating its fate,
until finally without the support it previously garnered,
it loses contact with the warmth that once gave it life.
Complying with Newton’s laws, the liquescent entity
makes its way to an unavoidable fate.
With memories of laughter, happiness,
love, friendship, secrets and compassion,
each searing away the pain brought on by an irrevocable loss;
the final part of its journey will be reached.
In its final moment, a moment of inscrutable triumph,
all coiled emotions are unleashed
and thus the single tear calls upon its brethren to follow.
It is then that one realises the real loss
that now befits their perpetual existence.
I have some poetry that I have written, even as far back as Standard 3 (Grade 5), and have decided to post some of my ‘work’. Please do not use/distribute any of my ‘work’ without permission. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone who visits could comply with that simply request.
With each poem I will offer a short blurb that highlights the emotions, settings and reason for why they were written. For future reference, each post containing a poem will be under the category ‘Literature In Verse’ (aka Poetry). There have also been a few changes to Hans’ Milieu that a few people may not know of…
Overall each MSN space has been updated ever so slightly. For example the photograph album no longer gives a Space visitor a graphical representation of the photograph albums currently present on each Space. The graphical representation of each album is now contained within a Drop Down menu located near the Album Module of the spaces. Basically what I am trying to say is, if you are new to Hans’ Milieu, or have previously visited and would like to review a picture, just note that they are still there. Every picture since Hans’ Milieu’s conception is still present but will need to be accessed via a drop down menu located by the album module. With that said two of the Albums have been updated:
Death By Degree’s – Xbox 360: This album now contains pictures of my actual Xbox 360. I stated in a previous post that I would explain the troubles in obtaining that elusive console, yet in this very post I have said that I would like to only focus on the here, now and future. For fear of contradiction, I will make an exception for the story of my Xbox 360. It will be something you want to read!
Personal Plates – Are you listed?: This album has been update with more photographs of South African drivers’ personal number plates. So, if you are a South African visitor, why not check to see if you are listed?!
Well Milieu Pals, there is obviously more I wish to tell, but that will have to wait until a further post. That way I have enough information for people to continue visiting Hans’ Milieu. Please feel free to share my space with any of your friends. The more, the better!
Until next time…
