they convene
 
blackness impinges upon wet night air
the moon sinks its spherical profile
into the tremulous vibes of the heavens
universal progenies chant to alien bids
 
discovery blesses their assessments or halts
rites of passage they pursue subjectively
wind shaped and time honed kneeling forms
purpose drifting upon seas of wonder
 
what covenant draws them to so convene?
solutions are not within the realm of ritual
for cause holds tightly to the hand of objectivity
while the heart beats with no promise of another

Thought provoking and so well penned Jon.

...when shall we three meet again... this has the mood of MacBeth's witches. However, I'm unclever, so i'll never understand this poem. It feels dark, halloween dark, wiccan dark.

That reminds me, this weekend the moon is going to look amazing, to those who don't live under a nation cover of cloud.

How philosophically rich!
The passage to the rites may be open to all, but few seem to be called to enter thereupon. Do I have this at all right, Jon, or am I way off the mark?
Blessings Always,
Christine

Promise is a word I take seriously...but must admit I have failed within the scope..but how we learn beneath that nigh air~

A covenant of marriage vows
upon an alter, but perhaps
the document not needed?

You have a way to go with words my friend. May God bless you.

Your sharing is worthy of much more than a single reading as it awakens much thought and reflection, Jon. Love and peace to you,

Straining my mind for metaphorical meanings,
many are called,
but few are chosen.
We want to see what we want to see,
but you make us look further.
Well done Jon.

powerful truism, Jon ... "the real of ritual" does preclude the possibility of seeing clearly ... the objective is overshadowed by the subjective longings and language, implied and lived up to by the covenant ...

thought stimulating work ... enjoyed ...

I AGREE WITH YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY; EVERY PERSON SHOULD HAVE A 'CAUSE' THEY ARE WILLING TO DIE FOR...NO MATTER HOW MANY 'CONVENE' AGAINST THEM. SO WELL DONE, JON AND THANKS FOR POSTING A WORK THAT REFLECTS THE DEPTH OF YOUR REMARKABLE POETICAL GIFT. ENJOYED...MUCH. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

jeezlouise....i need to go get a ladder and come back to this one. i do love the sound of the words though...just not tall enough to quite grasp

For a moment there I thought you were writing about vampires! But, thanks to John Flanagan, I guess you're writing about rituals. You sure have a way with words that surpasses my understanding. It's good to see you back writing poetry after your hiatus.

literary pemmican, Jon, My Friend,
condensed but not suppressed evaluation
of spiritual forces and ritualistic behaviour..
challenging both in thought and understanding,
poetry of a high order forcing language into meaning
kudos!

I'm straining to see who it is convening on this dark wet night... the universal progenies that chant to alien bids and what covenant calls to them while cause holds to the hand of objectivity.
Thought provoking Jon.

the covenant - god's promise to the human race, in the bible, or a binding contract, the offspring of evil, begotten of judgments and personal prejudices, yes they convene in ritualistic fashion in genocide agenda, or as rewritten, let's view "they convene" once again, the covenant - god's promise to the human race, in the bible, or a binding contract, the offspring of good, begotten of free will and diversity, yes they convene in ritualistic fashion in a neighborly agenda, like beauty it's all in the eye of the beholder and some of those eyes focus on ugly deeds because of lesser morals...thought-provoking Rumi-esque poetry, Jon...I leave you to ponder this review...

-solutions are not within the realm of ritual-, indeed my friend, but it gives comfort of abstract prepositions,don't you think. A well versed tour, of heart and mind, and universe. Bless you Jon!
