Reborn | Poetry Random Specific Thoughts

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
― Emily Dickinson

The sun has set 
On yet another opportunity.
His last rays
Igniting the dying embers
Of hope and faith.

The shadow of this
Certain uncertainty has left
Us all rotting
In a void of non-existent knowledge
In blissful oblivion of what follows.

Misplaced faith and hopeless hope
Drown in 
Their own regrets, for
A past wasted,
The present lost,
And an elusive future.

The sun rises and sets everyday,
Each ray renewing
Hope that once ceased to prevail.

You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming.
― Pablo Neruda

  1. This poem, D, touched my heart because it could have been written for me. Beautifully expressed the insecurity and unpredictability of human life.
    Thank you.

  2. Have you studied Literature or published any work? I can’t get over how incredible your writing is. The flow of your poems, your personification, and imagery wow me every time. I especially liked the juxtaposition of ‘certain uncertainty’. I have to admit – I read a lot of poetry from bloggers, but it’s rare that they’re at this standard.

  3. This was my most favored part:

    “The shadow of this
    Certain uncertainty has left
    Us all rotting
    In a void of non-existent knowledge
    In blissful oblivion of what follows.”

    One of my friends ( which is very satrical ) used to say “In rust we trust”, and that reminded me of him.

    Is the big type writer in the background new?

  4. I’m afraid it is a no to both, I’m 16 😂 and yet to drive deep into that field.
    Aw.. thank you so much! It makes me so happy to hear that you’re enjoying reading them! Me too! I felt it was a good way to describe our state of feeling at times.
    Thank you very much for your kind comment, Simone!! I’m glad you liked the poem!❤️

  5. I’m glad you liked that part! ‘Certain uncertainty’ was one of my favourite phrases to write.
    That’s an interesting saying, it rhymes too!
    It is. I redesigned my site a few days ago and went a tad crazy with typewriters 😂.
    Thank you for taking the time to read and comment!

  6. Guten Tag

    Vielen Dank für Ihr Poem.

    Die Seele ist der Quell
    allem Sein
    allen Dingen
    aller Welt

    wer hoffen will
    der glaubt sich all zu viel
    wir haben unser Leben
    als ein Wesen
    auf dieser Erde
    als Geschenk

    zu: – Emily Dickinson

    Wenn wir so weiter machen
    werden wenige Blumen
    in der Wüste
    den Menschen überdauern

    der Frühling wird dann
    über eine lange Zeit
    von einer Brandwunde
    über unsere Erde hinweg
    verstummen und verscheucht

    zu – Pablo Neruda

    Herzliche Grüße

  7. Anhang:

    Good day

    Thank you for your poem.

    The soul is the source
    all being
    all things
    all over the world

    who wants to hope
    he thinks too much
    we have our lives
    as a being
    on this earth
    as a present

    to: – Emily Dickinson

    If we continue like this
    will be few flowers
    in the desert
    outlast people

    spring will then
    over a long time
    from a burn
    across our earth
    fall silent and scare away

    to – Pablo Neruda

    Best regards
    Hans Gamma

  9. Good day
    and a wonderful happy new year.

    The soul knows
    man
    it is not enough
    he wants to get out of himself
    out into the universe
    im somewhere
    residents fly there

    The soul is the source
    all life
    of all voices
    of all words

    she’s been doing it ever since
    we have become human ourselves
    and ends afterwards
    after our demise
    so in the descendants
    never open in them

    Answer to – Emily Dickinson

    The flowers
    know in the bud
    their unfolding
    for them is spring
    around the globe
    ready at any time

    Answer to: – Pablo Neruda

    Best regards

  10. Faszinierend nimmt die Eingabeaufforderungen auf! Es ist faszinierend, sich zu fragen, wie wenig wir wissen, wie viel die Natur weiß.
    Frohes neues Jahr!
    ——————
    Intriguing takes on the prompts! It’s fascinating to wonder how oblivious we are to all that nature is aware of.
    Happy New Year!
