    Post Spectrum -- A Poem

    Spectrum
    by Gerard Bechard

    The ember glows red
    Like the conscious presence in my head
    Spectrum of light
    A beacon, shining bright
    Culmination of things said

    Still life reflects green
    Of these things seen
    Only faintly aware
    Nor even a care
    Of where it has been

    Devine eminence permeates blue
    In all things, through and through
    Visible with thy mind's eye
    Lowly one cannot see, nor nigh
    But a gifted few, it shines true

    There is another
    An odd kind of color
    Though it seems strange,
    It is given the name orange
    It is not alone, but made of two, together

    Of things all yellow
    Brightly intense, softness mellow
    Strongly it stands and stands alone
    Like sunlight, intense in tone
    Yet it is a kind, kind of fellow

    The noblest of capes worn
    From blue and red, it's born
    None would dare annihilate
    The one and only known as violet
    Kings and Queens adorn

    Together with all their might
    They forge a heat to destroy the night
    The hottest of heat
    It can't be beat
    The one known as white
    .

    I like that a lot :-)

    What inspires you to write poems?
    I envision a world where people dawning long white robes and elaborate headdresses run rampant down the streets, waving their arms in the air while screaming "we've gone mad, we've gone mad", like defrocked monks breaking the silence of ages past.

    A bit of an aside and speaking of poems...did you write the untitled Ode to Bundy that's your signature Vanessa? It is kind of creative in a quirky way. ;-)
    Turman found a copy of The Graduate, and thought highly enough of the story that he made a movie he considered to be 90-percent faithful to the book.

    But Turman and director Mike Nichols made one key adaptation, changing the Braddocks from WASP-y blonde characters into a dark-haired, more ethnic-looking family.

    Geez...it's actually a variation of Jingle Bells. I suppose it could be a poem if read the right way. Could probably do well at a coffee house on poetry night with bongoes as backup. :-p

    I'm not going to say what inspired me to write that one. I wrote it last night. Took about an hour.

    Oh yes, I wrote it. :-D

    I didn't even mean for it to go to "Jingle Bells" LOL I had planned for it to be to a xmas song, but I thought that it wouldn't work. I guess I was wrong? hehe

    btw, I wouldn't be caught dead at a coffee house, especially on poetry night! hehehe Well, maybe if I cooked up a super-offensive poem! >:-)

    Of course it works! I saw the Grinch the other day and I could see the Mighty Green One reading it without blinking an eye.:-p

    As for coffee houses, you are probably better off not being caught dead or alive in one. I went to one not too long back, and I thought it would be kind of cool like the origonal coffee houses of the 1950's with the beatniks (yes, am aware a lot of the stuff then was rad-lib, still there was a certain style about them). But instead all there was present were some way past their time refugees from Woodstock, a he/she character, and just a few poems any good, and too, the heavy dose of rad-lib stuff, naturally.

    The rad-libs have ruined a lot of culture by having to insert their crap in it and using it for their ends, just like a virus. Politicizing poems Good Gawd!:-(

    Yeah, I remember being at a bookstore one day, just browsing, and I heard some feminist poem about The Patriarchy being read LOL

    I think politics and poems can mix well though, but it is sooooo over-done by the liberal arts students! Why do people want to fill their stereotypes so bad?

    The rad-libs bought into the idea quite a while back of the ends justifying the means...ie being that they are of the opinion that they are going to bring the world paradise it is okay that to do so they lie, cheat, steal, murder, politicize culture, sell their own mothers into whoredom, whatever and anything to obtain power. The ends justifying the means (excepting in life or death situation and for short duraton, and even then, if anything else is possible, that's better to do), is a devil's bargain.

    They do have a great deal of power, for the moment, but they sold their souls to obtain it.

    I'd rather keep my soul!
