Poetry There are a number of poets among the Ovi team, so we have gathered the together here.
| ||I beg|
I beg my will to show me still
the simple strength from within,
that I may hold on beyond the end
and not fall weak to wanting trends.
| ||We Dreamed Ourselves Awake|
One day we all woke up.
Every one of us really woke up.
We dreamed ourselves awake.
| ||Wisely On Cue|
All kindness comes from instant recognition from afar
Like strict geometry is altogether accurate
Of this wide world and its people as they drawn are;
| ||Self Portrait as a Froglet|
first I feed
on mother's yolk
attached am I
to her algae soft fingers
| ||I am alive|
Listening to Brahms very loudly,
Drinking a deep lusty red wine ,
I can hear the rolling waves
Of the ocean crashing
| ||Collapsible Chairs|
lie in confinement, arms folded, without complaint.
They are not like other chairs.
Uprights are so stand-offish. Unbending,
There is probably no way to puzzle into that dismay
I must have felt when pulled to the light of day.
Being born, the shocks of light, of sound, necessities to suck in air,
| ||Give Us Leaders Who have Suffered......|
Yes, Give us Leaders who have Suffered
The Darkness Outside and Inside ThemSelves
With the Light and Hope Energies of
Grace, Understanding, Discernment,
| ||Lazarus |
Like a dark Lazarus
I rose from the depths,
An immovable object
Of flesh and bones.
| ||Pear country during Easter|
You're just a boy and I'm
just an invisible girl. You're
tenderness, light, angelic.
You're a still life portrait.
