Ekphrastic poetry done with Triolets.
'Artless on a raging sea'...


I知 not the one I used to be
Who broke the rules and pushed the bar
Who never wavered, can稚 you see,
I知 not the one I used to be,
But now since much has changed in me
I値l dream but never go too far,
I知 not the one I used to be
Who broke the rules and pushed the bar

I知 not someone of nave quest
Espousing all that痴 given me
Nurturing all my hearts unrest
I知 not someone of nave quest,
But if I致e not somehow possessed
The art of sweet simplicity,
I知 not someone of nave quest
Espousing all that痴 given me

I知 not the one I used to see
In stirring flames and mountain streams
Artless on a raging sea
I知 not the one I used to see,
But if I致e struggled just to be
A somber shawl of unsung dreams,
I知 not the one I used to see
In stirring flames and mountain streams

I致e become withdrawn with age
Beguiled with simple fare
Inspired more to disengage
I致e become withdrawn with age,
Nevermore to war and rage
Against this life unfair,
I致e become withdrawn with age
Beguiled with simple fare

a wise poetic tour de force ... admirable in effect as well as affect ...
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 1/24/2015
The idea of a simple life appeals greatly to me. However, there may come a time, even at advanced age, when one must face the raging sea that life can sometimes, become.

In total, the poem emotes wisdom.

Espousing all that's given me. Beguiled with simple fare.
A heartfelt read.

Richard, What a difficult rhyme scheme you chose to write this message of loss. "Artless on a raging sea" opens out to so many interpretations. Keep on writing because your words reach out to touch others you will never meet. Well done. Eileen
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 1/23/2015
I'm not the one I used to be either,
Then when I got mad I'd reach for a cleaver,
Now I do the right thing,of both, neither,
I just sit right down, and initiate a personal breather...

The strength of your writing rises far above the crowd,
and you write so well in telling us of who you are not.
Expertly crafted.
Reviewed by Jansen Estrup 1/23/2015
So well said, and so sad to become withdrawn with age. Simple fair is fine but becoming resigned to the notion that I wasted too much time caring about the sorry state of things and invested too little enjoying what was wonderful is a deep regret. Don't withdraw too soon, Richard, or too far.

Best, Jan
