Star North

Days are long, pushed on strong,
The year, nearly done.
Darkness reigns, wisdom gains,
A year, clearly won.

Remember back, reflect, relax,
Love ones, of your choice,
Take things back, you can't retract,
Use more ears, than voice.

Cheer the ghost, make a toast,
Tonight can't last forever,
Make the most, stand a post,
You've seen harsher weather.

  1. JBangin,

    I just re-read this poem and now think its meaning is entirely different than my initial interpretation. Perhaps we can discuss its meaning?

  2. Maybe over a bottle of red or white wine? This poem carries a ton of meaning to me, and has more depth than at first glance, at least to me it does, because I know why I wrote it.

    I surprised myself with this one a little bit, and I hope you enjoy, and come back to it. The redundancy, and contradiction, in the 2nd verse adds that depth I was referring to, and the complicated structure adds a degree of difficulty. Not to toot my own horn, but this is my favourite thing produced from my blog so far. Someone could read this post to their family a thousand years from now, and the message would still hold true.

    Thanks for reading.

  3. Mmmm...I think a bottle of red wine would do. Wine and poetry sound like a decent backdrop for an interestin' evening.
