L. B. Mek

“We”

 

Just the sound igniting tidal waves, deep inside

Spring’s refuge syllable, against a life of Winter’s solitude

hollow splinters glued whole, within a vowel

soundtrack letters to impossibility’s demise

word of unassuming innocence, invading

fortified hearts to unmask pulsating paths.

A reinvigorating rainbow breath for affection parched ears 

when breezily whispered: by your hallowed lips, my dear.

      A mesmerising octet here, L. B. Mek, your words cascade like a thunderous; yet serene waterfall.

      Bravo, and I hope all is well.

          soundtrack letters to impossibility’s demise...
          very clever indeed.

          • L. B. Mek

            thank you, that's my favourite part as well, although sadly
            'we' is used more and more as a tool for tribal segregation or rather modernity's 'identity politics',
            exploited by goal orientated media and reactionary activists for its polarising effect,
            a century ago 'we' waged wars as countries, next world war will probably be fought between next door neighbours,
            righteous woketivist culture divisiveness consuming us all, street by chaotic street...
            (how absurdly dramatic our words can read, until they're belatedly viewed as prophetic) lol
            or more likely, that greater good 'we' of togetherness: will once again bail us out by giving us a collective target for all that innate hate, 'we humanity' love to accumulate

              • L. B. Mek

                thank you, glad you could relate or at least connect with my worded vision for the concept that is: 'we'

                • Fay Slimm.

                  Wonderful imagery L.B. and with such a moving last couplet - a read to read over again hence into my treasured list of favourites.

                  • L. B. Mek

                    wow, what a highlight, so appreciated!
                    just hope my feeble efforts may inspire another
                    like your poetic brilliance pushes me to aspire - higher
                    what a gift you wield dear Fay

                  • Poetic Dan

                    Wow.... would love to know if you had a beat in your head while writing this or just that silence in a tone that wrote this pure magic!

                    • L. B. Mek

                      just going with the flow, as your own words: so often - inspire us to do, dear poet
                      glad you liked this feeble effort, at scribbling a mellow hum of worded solace..
                      always appreciate your support my friend!

                    • Teddy.15

                      "we" I like this play on words very much.

                      • L. B. Mek

                        thank you, an important word in modernity's reality of polarising divisive tensions, may the 'we' of unity ever prevail over that 'we' of segregating tribalism
