Spiritual Vessels - Our Voices Day 15

Updated on August 4, 2013



Seeking refuge once empty containers
Bodies in desperate need of nourishment
Requiring fuels that aren't physical in nature
Reaching for internal assistance solutions


Public persistence funded by labor pains
Consuming others each earthly revolution
Mere Numbers in search for love from mothers
To impregnate uploading hard wired contents
Contextually out of synch feeling no nonsense

Gravitational pulling the outer forces
Vocational tools pushing the inward sources
up and down pumping motions
Like 2 jack hammers making love
On a naked beach over viewing the ocean


Emotional overload with less movement
Moments of inertial fortress
Coexistence intermingled with new age losses
Iron rod and reel body of internal bosses
Thirst hunger needs wants greed’s stunts
Fueling a steeds desire for lunch



From this freeform poem of spoken word, produced the one up above and was a source of creatve poetic release for me

      Random thoughts are a great way to trigger more thoughts. In a sense, its very abstract. Abstract arts of all kinds really allow others to create in their minds while trying to piece things together. I think its fantastic.

      @SkySlave, thanks for much for truly digging deep into my poem here. I don't even remember the inspiration to write it, but I read it just now and it felt weird to realize that these are my actual words.

      Its a Freaky kind of feeling, and after reading your comment about it. I never thought it would have any effect at all, its just random thoughts thrown into a sort of collage I guess :)

      Hubpages needs a "Mind blowing" descriptive button for occasions as this. Belting out pathways of possibility. This poem didn't drag me along on its journey. It jolted me into a journey of my own. I thought a few things that i don't remember thinking before. Some expressions of poetry keep my mind on a bus at a steady speed, soaking up the scenery that i see out of the window, so to speak. Poems like this wake me up in a bus station where i hop on all of the buses at one time heading in every direction. Can't tell you how much i dig this. This ones not just a spark, its a raging fire that puts itself out to ignite again in minds of those that will receive it and beyond.

      Thanks Ruby, yeah the Jack Hammer line fun to write too. I don't know why I threw it in there, maybe I was thinking about all the sexual stuff thrown at us visually online, in TV, and in the movies :)
