All the days of our lives are swept onto god's bonfire...


Shadowed not by sickened thought

He sweeps the debris of our days

Onto God’s bonfire

No conscience has he

 

Heedless of our bitterness

Vitality leaches into time's indecent flow

Leaving only the husks of haunted lovers

Fuel for god's bonfire

 

Those years he sweeps away

Dead leaves of corrupted love

Whispering of passions spent forever

That sigh death amid the flames

 

First kitten’s cry

First meeting eye to eye

With she I love so dearly

Let these tears be my death

 

First home we bought

And filled with love and laughter

Which echo still through solitary bitter nights

Memory is cruel

 

Gathered, sown and spent

The withered days of joy play around our feet

Rustling flotsam-fuel for god’s fire

 Winter comes

SPRING, SUMMER, FALL...WINTER. FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON. IS THE GLASS HALF FULL OR HALF EMPTY? I GUESS IT'S HOW ONE LOOKS AT IT. IN THE BOOK OF JOB...DID GOD 'ALLOW' THE SWEEPER TO DO GOOD OR BAD?...I GUESS, IT REALLY IS HOW ONE LOOKS AT IT. GREAT IMAGERY AND PHRASES, THANKS FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Oxidation works well, and the wind sweeps everything clean in time. Finally, our dying sun will burn it all.

I think this is fine poetry, Keith; it evokes so much and it stirs my spirit. Love and peace to you,

Father time, the bone man, the can can, the dance of gnarled, twisted, carved, skeletons, their minds burning, mine too, there is a whole lot of kindling to carve on Keith. Bless you!
Reviewed by Lily of Lough Neagh C. Dennis-Woosley 9/14/2012
Hmmm powerful poem indeed. And what I get from it is
if you cannot let go of past as a life experience,
which all go through to some extent, you view yourself
as fodder for the fire. Sad that it was only a memory
and cannot be kept in the mind as a treasure for all
the good that came from it.

Perhaps I'm off the mark, but yes a very powerful poem Keith

Love and Light

Well Keith I do believe I've never pictured God with a broom in his hand. But I must admit His Church needs sweeping out.
Like Ed said "A powerfully sad poem"
