~~~ The Seed Of Thought/Hope ~~~

Updated on September 17, 2014

~ Hope ~



I had a dream ….

A sapphire sky blinked as I stood behind the stars,

Witnessing infinity through the eyes of a child,

Staring, upon the lonely Earth,

As she reflected upon a heavenly prism.


Kaleidoscope array of magnanimous beauty

Breached via the embryo of a new day,

Bore the inpenetrable clarity

Of freshly-cut diamante’.

Babies were flying through the clouds,

Racing the swift, aerial morass, for fun.


Flames of love licked the memories

Of ancient passions;

Evil pages were ripped from history, as their

Inhabitants choked upon eternity;

Their vellum scrolls,

Frittering into amorphous, ashen heaps.


Divorced night wept, as her heavy cloak was torn

Asunder; sent away, never to be seen again,

Ushering in a permanent, invigorating sun,

That bled through the twilight, to burst,

Upon a troubled throng,

Quietening that spectrum of clamour, with

A new warmth; a new invention, suckled by

An infant heart.


Deserts filled an hourglass, then inverted,

For their time had come to pass;

Oceans were poured into thimbles,

To quench tomorrows thirst,

As the sky’s lungs inhaled the future,

Of black, red, white and yellow children,

Linking arms;

Angels surrounded the globe,

Touching wing tips,

Commanding the Earth to be filled with love;


Then all was well again, as it was,

Before dreams were born.

The sky’s palette now stroked a new fleck

Inside the children’s eyes,

That shone with new depth, as they

Witnessed tomorrow,

Through the eyes of the one

Who stood behind the stars.

      Thank you for the thumbs up and happy to provide something which you liked.

      Good Evening to you and your family;

      Hello Kind Sir,

      I "Hope" you have not wandered off from HP Town and will soon make your presence known and all is well with you on the other side of the pond? I wanted you to know that the best month here on HP is coming in April, as you may know, and that is Poetry Month!!! A fellow hubber reminded me of such this day. It was a time when I first joined HP and I was clueless that it was Poetry Month, and I thought to myself, my goodness, there are serious poets here on HP. I just wanted you to know in hopes that you would bless us with your magnificent poetry, as always, but especially during April too.

      Hugs,

      Faith Reaper

      I've read Evangelical books portraying convincing testimonies about the appearances of aforementioned Angels, and the Holy Bible is strewn with their visitations, and manifestations of them, but if I didn't believe them, then I would now, as I have just seen one upon this very page, as this magically induced, convex, coat-hanger smile will attest to. : )

      Thank you, Faith Reaper, for your wonderful comments, and glory to God for all of the thought-provoking, and heart-touching work that is produced, and proves to be acceptable.

      With a happy heart, created by the woman who just made my day.

      Sincerely Yours,

      Romeo's Quill

      Very deep and it flowed very well. I loved mainly the following words here......

      '...........Deserts filled an hourglass, then inverted,

      For their time had come to pass;

      Oceans were poured into thimbles,

      To quench tomorrows thirst,...."

      Simply amazing.....the emotional flow was very moving and engaging. Thank you for sharing this one. Shared and Votes all up.

      Perhaps you forgot about the picture,because you became the picture,inasmuch as far as hearkening back to a more innocent time,where hope was the order of the day?Just a conjecture....

      Well, if it's anything like your writing...

      Honestly, I had talked to you for probably a week or better before it dawned on me and found myself giggle at the thought.

      If I revisit this page one more time without commenting on that picture above, I'm going to get mad :-( ... I simply love the picture, it really caught me off guard, in a good way, when I first opened the page, but after reading your piece, I had forgotten about it.

      No,what do they say about my people?(Could it be that they're stuffy,stiff-upper-lipped tight-assed,constipated bourgeois prigs,by any chance? :)

      I love your clown act babe;it's refreshing,and entertaining.Where else could anyone find hot,and funny on the same page?

      ...And the last part,I can't do without turning into Austin Powers.....:)

      Bwah ha ha ha! Funny thing is, when I first read the shirt, I read it out loud and I thought it said "I'm an EMT; I'm hear to save your ass not kick it" ... I laughed for a minute and then the sweet old lady, once realizing I was done laughing, said "it says 'kiss' it"... feeling like an idiot, I said "Haaa, that's even better!"

      As far as the snobby thing... you are from England aren't you? You know what they say about 'your people'? :D

      You don't tear into anyone's comments; all in good fun, that's all. You are very welcoming and gracious on your pages and don't pay any mind to my clowning around.

      Oh... I'm sorry, what was that last part? ............

      It makes perfect sense to me - how many people have ever made a full recovery by mouth-to-ass resuscitation?...but that is one cool medical shirt;you'll have to give it an airing one day,seeing as you're a bit of a joker,and all :) How could you keep a straight face in front of that old lady?I think I would have been rolling on the floor,right about that point lol!

      And no;you never said I was snobby - just pre-empting ,in case you thought that I was looking down my nose at you,because you are an English major,that's all;trying to be considerate :)

      Believe me Cat,I never intend to tear into anyone's comments,but thanks for being a great sport about it,and I'm glad that you think it adds depth to the dialogue.There are many other things I would much rather be tearing into....

      Ha ha!!! Hey, do you know someone bought me a lovely shirt after I first became certified as an EMT (screw the periods by the way :-) ... it read "I'm an E.M.T; I'm here to save your arse, not kiss it" ... without the R of course. Though it generated a laugh, I didn't wear it, not in public anyway as that's not the message I want to send to patients :D ... the sweet old lady that gave it to me used to always say "Why aren't you wearing your shirt?" Ha ha.

      Did I ever say you were snobby? I didn't think so ;-)

      Actually, I like when you tear apart my comments, it adds more depth to the conversation :D.

      Lol! I'm nothing special,babe;I was brought up on the streets in hell's kitchen,so I'm not snobby,but I try to be courteous to all visitors/guests.

      From what I've garnered from your comments,it seems as though it is a mix of your childhood memories,and myself,by the words in this narrative,that have both 'evoked' that feeling of hope within you,but I don't know the proportions of each individual influence,as only you could search yourself to find that answer,if you deemed it as important in your own life,at this time,to put that detail under your own microscope.

      Stop picking on me ya bully! lol!! You're an E.M.T. aren't you? Did you know that if your hand is bigger than your face,you've got cancer?

      R.Q. :P

      I'm only playing... sometimes a word pops in my head and I use it, right or wrong :-) ... to think I was an English major? ha ha... oh well. No harm, no foul... I just like picking on you.

      So how much do you charge for a session of tutoring? :-)

      Cat

    • Romeos Quill profile image
      Author

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      Cat

      No,no...'invoked' is the right choice,if that is how you were feeling,in order to reach that hope...and I know you're tired...you told me by e-mail.....'member? :) (I've been on the go all day as well,as you know).'To cite,or support in justification',also is a definition of 'invoke',so that could mean that I was the source of that feeling of hope,making it even MORE complicated! lol!

      Like I said before,though,only you would know that,and I don't want to pry into a commenters personal motivations for that aforementioned hope,as that is none of my business.

      R.Q. : )

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 4 years ago from New York

      Professor Plumb,

      Ha ha... yes, I am aware of the definition, though I may have used it inappropriately, that's what I thought I was feeling at the time. And, in a sense, yes... previous memories... childhood innocence; I thought so. But fine, invoked. I'll stick with "Nice Piece" and "That's Good" in the future as to not embarrass myself :-(

      Invoke - To call on (a higher power) for assistance, support, or inspiration. Hmmm.... I guess I was explaining what it did for me, as opposed to what mood it created for the audience. I don't know, I'm tired and the more I defend myself, the more I probably show my lack of intelligence... so I'll stop while I'm not ahead :D

      That tomato thing only works in person as I cannot hear you pronounce it differently through the computer :D .... but I get the point.

      Yours Smincerely,

      Romeos Quill 4 years ago from Lincolnshire, England

      Cat

      Well,if it summoned,or called forth previous memories,then I suppose 'evoked' would be fitting,but knowing your 'persuasions of personal belief',I decided that using 'invoke' would be more fitting,as the influence visited upon you as the reader would likely have that source of hope issued by a personal petition to your Maker,inculcating your own latent early religious seed of hope,but I reckon that you would be the only one to know that for certain,so hey! You say ' tomato ',I say ' tomato ' : ) Whatever works for you,works for me,and I won't split hairs witcha lol! : )

      R.Q.

      So what are you really saying? Are you saying I should've used invoked rather than evoked? ha ha... well I think they both work, but who the heck am I?

      That's awfully sweet of you to say; your writing I value as choice gold!

      It was all so beautiful and inspiring, but I just fell in love with this part.

      This poem, is .... I can't describe it..... It's deep, coming form the depth of the heart and mind.... Touching the soul as it soars to the abyss of the universe! Which line should I pick.... The Divorced night, or the Oceans that poured in thimbles?? Or the many others that provokes your senses! Beautifully written, and power to your Quill, RQ!

      Thanks for sharing.....
