His iron heart weighs down
The rays of a golden sun

He is alive yet buried
In artifacts of ancient lives

If only he could renew
Vows of his creative effort
He would not be estranged
From life’s triumphant caress

Perhaps the presence of clarity
Would release his mysterious nature
Into a greater imagination yet unseen

Mountains would cease becoming obstacles
And tides not hold him back from his dreams

Is hope the catalyst
Curing his dismay?

Or is action the protagonist
Delivering his way?

Perhaps a little of both
Will bring upon a new day

A great dream is to live. What if we had no dreams? We learn from the past so that the future may be happier, or at least that's the way it's supposed to be, but doesn't always work out that way. Great write!

Nice work...your thoughts are a view of us as we follow the path of this journey through life...hope and action ot acting upon action ...all in the same as we seek to better or become ourselves at higher levels of life...very nice work and a very enjoyable piece....

"..Mountains would cease becoming obstacles..."

This line reminds me of the ancient Chinese proverb:
"It is not the mountain that wears you out. It is the grain of sand
in your shoe."

Thank you, Jude, for these great poems you post.

"perhaps..." might not be enough clarity, but it's a possibility!
One never knows, or maybe, can never understand the steps some others need to take for their own " day"...we therefore are left with our own dismay and clingings to hope, "Acting upon Action"
You got me thinking, as usual, Jude!
I enjoy reading your works!
Love and Peace~

Such a person is truly dead to the living world around him. We are meant to live the "now" and study the past as a reminder not to repeat old silly mistakes. Excellent as usual. Victor

Hope gives us the reason for all our actions, for without hope all action is lost.

Robert Your Write are deep

When I read these type of writes
they remind me, when I am at a football game
And the offensive is in a huddle
I thnk they are talking about me
Am I paranoid Or What?
Peace be with you

OOOO. I love the iron heart, for personal reasons, can't mention the ex in public.

Puts into perspective the meaning of one's existence. Those ones who enjoy high well-being are the ones with a devotion to some kind of purpose beyond themselves. Acting upon Action reminds us to bring our daily efforts into better alignment. Doing something original and worthwhile will let one end up on the side of the ledger where others will follow with new social ethics to motivate our society...a clear image of the broader man will bring upon a new day, Jude...

"Perhaps a little of both

Robert, you've done it to me again. Hope by itself, will not bring anything about. It's like prayer without action. It goes into a hole of desperation.
