Poem in Response to Brenda's Wordle ~45~ Heed Not The Drowsy Murmur~

Half covered, half numb, their senses cemented
shaking revealing rhythming away the darkness    
amid subdued lights,
drinks drugs and dance,never cumbersome
straying attraction  entranced
love of all love controls the sights.

It is better to rest to sleep to pray
It is better to thank to weep, to stay

Heed not the drowsy murmur of the bees      
Be not lost in the  honeyed ease
Come find your way on the map
hold it firm on your lap
Time...there is not much water
in the tap...
Birds of Mecca pelted pebbles
from the sky
Reluctant are only the disbelievers
Loss is for the 'all deceivers'

Prayer is better than sleep
Prayer is better than sleep

We all know about the flowers and fire
We all know how to heaven the good went
We know of locusts blood and the flood
But Beware of the dense visible smoke'
Which will be sent forth from the sky'
A painful torment from up high...

It is better to cover to help to give
Stay alive, for 'others', we need to live'


  1. What a beautiful culmination to a lovely poem.. came through Jingle Poetry..

  2. A cautionary piece set in motion by the first stanza. Excellent write.

  3. Dear Brenda Thank You I feel truly honored and encouraged.Waiting for the next wordle, God willing...

  4. The wordle words hide among this piece but your warnings stride forward. I tumble forward in this piece... not quite sure if I grasp it all. Prayer is better than sleep... I seem to do both poorly. Thinking of you.

  5. ...."It is better to cover to help to give
    Stay alive, for 'others', we need to live'" - It is beautiful line. Lovely poem.
