We cope so differently

            Painted mirth

                     Fatigued brow

                               Spiritual songs

                                          Opined seizure

                                                        Times chant

But we can all learn and grow

             Solitudes wish

                        Plague of prayers

                                    Pellucid quest

                                                      Patience narrows

                                                                        Contemplation deviation

Open my heart as I prepare my soul …

                  Sequenced songs

                                    Heart that longs

                                                      Searching soul

                                                                        Open communication

                                                                                          Lurid license

As I add to Greenberg’s charms to stretch our comprehension.
Don’t bow your head … listen learn and love instead!

  2. This is absolutely stellar! I love how the poem echoes the style of Greenberg especially; “Times chant/But we can all learn and grow.” 🙂

  3. You, as I did, did a good job in shaping the poem to ape Greenberg’s style. I agree that you created many of your own “charms”, and fitted them in well.

  4. I like your poem, Kate ( strophe 1 and 3 ) . I am a bit surprised by the second and especially in it by ‘”plague of prayers “. Surprised because your poem looks like a prayer. 😉
    Love ❤

  5. Many years ago I participated in this thing called ‘Hands Across America” – it was an attempt to inspire and create a united front of similarity instead of focus on difference.

    I like your ‘charms’ ….
