~ Think; Say; Do ~


Let not thy harsh lips be the gates where truth goes to die; for tongues splice verse yet words ne'er lie. Rather, part their curtained horizon to issue time and latcheth souls eternity bound, to rest in their hearts your imperial sounds which sow thoughts through a language yet untaught.


Thoust changeth nought if not your own world be changed to lifteth heaven's still voice to fell the idols of remontant hearts; for even the sky wends a wreath if it reacheth not for another sky, aye, e'en to an audible light where the sacristy of heart strings abide with unseen harps in an orchestra that never sleeps.


Raise portcullis of marrowed cage and finally, becomest the bidden fruit in the apple of thy Father's eyne, for tomorrow must swallow love's yestreen woes and nights shall weep each day ye sow.


Yet here today, flickers of noon are guillotined by velveteen lids and their chiffony blades clip time in a crowded hour wherest rain in Paris and crumbs in bed regale their tale of bliss unsaid, for lo; when the last note falls from us all and tyrant shadows reside in our own music box which maketh sound no more, muffled by God's footstool inside an earthen pocket afore His speckled cape, dusk shalt still draw swart hem to enter Lewis' secret wardrobe and trade lineament with a yawning morn; yea; spirits shall blink a sleepy orb and suspire aghast at strawberry quartz, auric pavements and reigning sapphire blue to inhabit another world and wave valedictory victory of sayonara to a jaded public who wipeth mud from the teashade glasses of their paper hero to live in their own universe beneath Lennon's feat.


THE END

      Hey it's young Flasheroo!! Lol! I've missed you too on here and your great writing. I hope everything is going well for you. You had written so many pages when I last heard from you that I'm suprised something didn't fall off :)

      Are you still living in Minnesota?

      I love 'Paris in the rain and crumbs in bed'. Great tribute to Lennon; your poetry is always beautiful and you play with words so well.

      Hope all's well in your neck of the woods.

      Good morning, Romeo: This verse sends me to the Book of James and his admonition concerning our tongues. Then to the Book of Proverbs which counsels us that life and death dwells therein. We as writers pen because something great has been revealed that is beneficial to and through us and can be beneficial to others. The opening verse is instructional if you are listening and ready to change.

      Let not thy harsh lips be the gates where truth goes to die; for tongues splice verse yet words ne'er lie. Rather, part their curtained horizon to issue time and latcheth souls eternity bound, to rest in their hearts your imperial sounds which sow thoughts through a language yet untaught.

      Continue to beautify our hearts. Have a great week. Voted up!

      Hello Mabel;

      I'm happy for you that this short piece helped send you to better places and also tried to underline the impetus visited when we try to set up those idols in our heart which I'm sure most of us do at one time or another.

      I love Lennon's music and his unique abilities and some of the things which he stood for in life but realize that there is always a danger of setting great men up like him as gods which cannot take one past this life into the real heaven, hence the picture of Christ above him.

      Thank you as always for your valued insights and encouraging input.

      Sending Warm Regards for a peaceful week;

      R.Q.
