Poetry There are a number of poets among the Ovi team, so we have gathered the together here.
Next to my surprise did I realize,
life is best served in compromise,
| ||Healing an old relationship|
On the wings and prayer of a dove
Leaves falling to the ground.
Poet first and writer second.
Door swayed as
Streams of yellow light
| ||Adventure |
Mountains there are
To tooth the horizon,
And lakes to trap the sky
In between the forests.
| ||To Burn|
Beset by demons, driven wild, dreams disconsolate.
He sacrificed himself to his own broken dream.
| ||Wild Bill|
Wild Bill died
the day I found it
| ||Irresistible Surge|
I feel that irresistible surge,
The ocean, the wave, the
Rock on the hill, the fight of free will;
The push from beneath,
The slashing and burning
The lava was turning.
| ||The path of a woman|
No anchor for this paper tiger empress.
No age of iron for this literary orphan.
| ||Your life against mine|
You wake up at dawn,
your eyes adjust to the pale light.
I wake up in the middle of night,
| ||The Burial of the Dead|
The cenotes led The Fathers of Us All to it:
at the bottom of the waters there is a cave,
with land one can walk on, and breathe.
