‘Edenbray in Exile’
A Retrospective Anthology of Poetry, Articles and Essays
… … …
How good this carnal fire?
Where the liberty flag flies
The morning sun rushing hope
The turn of our innermost feelings
Please assemble on the tarmac
Let the firefighters wrestle the hydrant
Form an orderly queue and listen
The peaceful narrative soliloquy
The band-aid, the mountain jagged
And sleep – a courtroom jester
Mocking both our reason and our tact
Within the folds of distress
A window open leaning where
There is a soft bird yearning
A faint hope burning
#Authors Note ~ After enduring Day 26 of my Isolation during CV-19 pandemic EDENBRAY in EXILE launches a 22nd Retrospective piece.
Tonight I watched the Sidney Lumet classic movie – #NETWORK for the very 1st time – 40 years after it was released and somehow it is hard to believe that film was anywhere near as relevant or amusing when it was 1st released all those years ago despite winning 4 – Academy Awards. It would make great #essentialviewing for this LOCKDOWN audience – so relevant – so funny! … so to the point! … … and then theres EDENBRAY’s – Turquoise 3 similarly appears to fit like a latex glove and ‘live’ in the present paranoid, virally challenged but conversely loving era that we are currently living through!
Maybe what I had had feared most, all along, is coming true – that I really wrote all my verse for such a tragic & sad time as this – when we are all feeling unlike ourselves and choosing or should I say turning into characters out of the Walking Dead in a kind of huge role play. edenbraytoday
#Footnote: LOCKDOWN ROLEPLAY
DURING LOCKDOWN – WHICH WALKING DEAD CHARACTER ARE YOU TURNING TO ????
I’m turning in ..to Hershel Greene
… calm, solid, wise, dependable, experienced, spiritually mature and with *2 beautiful daughters … (also deluded!)
PARENTAL DISCLAIMER: *NOTE – not deluded on this final point by the way!
