Poems by Jan De Raeymaeker

-- EMERALD AND BERYL -- Then life comes back On the limbs of the lost and gone Criss-crossed thousands Finding slow decay On the bones of Beech The tomb-teeth of Pine Feeding from the fallen And bowered stumps Reaching skyward, bit by bit Its innocent stems Topped in emerald and beryl Alive and vibrant, and so delicate

The Stranger

By: Felicity Earnshaw; Jacomien Souverijn, Illustrator

Communication among individuals, between the individual and the world around is hemmed in, and one resists the agent that might open it. Again and again, the means come to a person's attention. Another's hurt, injustice, rejection, responded to in a way different from what would be expected assist in an opening, until the prison dissolves.

A scanty sunlight falls through thin slits into the room. Its floor, walls, ceiling—stone, outside no sight of verdure, the dank earth below isolated, the piece of sky above cold, the air around desolate, the voice within untrusted— as the cry of one insane, the heart’s love disconnected by force diminutive ruling wide to raze the link of hope, poke out vision— for there to be none to lead out from deafening lies, beauty—this not— so deep the chasm, so sharp, so final the cut.

Another's hurt, injustice, rejection, responded to in a way different from what would be expected assist in an opening, until, at a given point, the prison dissolves.

Bird Bomb

By: Jan De Raeymaeker

Poems by Jan De Raeymaeker

--- MALIN HEAD --- So old these grey bones; so old, and so alone Shrugging loose their soiled coat To dip the salt caress, its wet brush Flayed by the icy crush Hungry wails and relentless howls Circling, lamenting the ravenous chill Their cries stolen from the waves and passed west Out over the empty depths

Poorness

By: Jan De Raeymaeker

Poems by Jan De Raeymaeker

--- SOUND ME --- Sound me. Am I not round in your mouth? Do I split your lips? Make you spit? Do I make you bite your tongue? Push the syllables out wrongly? Do I make you gnash? Tangle you in a toothed trap? Sound me. I am round in your mouth. I make yours’ open with a pout. Make you lovingly form me And long to breathe me out.

The Butt

By: Jan De Raeymaeker

Poems by Jan De Raeymaeker

--- COME THE DAWN --- As night's crisp breath settles The aroma of rot whispers Of beaded milk-flesh sunken That awful stillness at the end A stiff trapped stare fixed Cavities bloating to maggot feed Death lingering by fingertips Slipping as dawn’s life takes up Leaving a mottled corpse behind Letting sleeping dogs lie

The Glad Woman

By: Felicity Earnshaw

"Tattered, dusty, broken, light as birds, we wander in the rich pansy dark among the stars"—More vital than the roles, here mostly of woman, spoken in the voices of daughters, sons and others, and ranging from scientist, friend, dreamer and peacemaker, to mother, teacher, worker, helper, seeker and listener to spirit, nature and art, the focus is on glints of world peace, not brilliant but shining, not complete but requisite: However tired we may be of the dead end of...

...enter into the process quickly— the swiftly softly pealing notes of long flowing ribbon-in-the-wind scales— sentences in which we move into new realms, and then feel the nudges and booms of adjustment amid deeper structures, as if they applaud those cheerful graceful light-running rapidly graduating songs sung—danced—so perfectly; that youths return after their adventures, tell stories of pure celestial handshakes, brotherly, sisterly embrace of two wh...
