THIS SONG WHICH NEVER ENDS

 

Such words, poetry rare

Exulting reality

Into voice           Expression

Into being

Being       into form.

From out of ashes

Out of seasons

Years time and reason

And from out of every man

Woman born

Conceived.

All truths   shadows   And all loves

Destructions and voices

Perceived

Complete and thus returning

Like Angels

Like Gods

Again to tell their stories

Or to tell the tale

The myth, the verse or the prayer

The hymn manifested

Again

For here is your

Hero

Your villain

And your Goddess renewing

The world

And here is your song:

Their song

Our song

All songs

Beginning &

Then ending again

These poems and these words

A dance     A waltz

These songs remaining, returning

Like every prophecy foretold in

The past   The present  & The future

Born from

Every sun

Every star

Every moon

And every daughter

Within every universe

Contained.

For this place, world

Is a universe made up

Of dust & words, language

And resurrections

Hello

Goodbye

Farewell

Love

Death

And sorrows

Vision.

Such words, such voices

Poetry rare

Exulting reality beyond

A human heart

So human, so frail

This song which never ends.

An Interview With Albany Poets :

The Resurrection Waltz – The New Book of Poetry from R.M. Engelhardt

WHERE TO GET THE RESURRECTION WALTZ

WHERE TO GET THE RESURRECTION WALTZ

R.M. Engelhardt is an underground writer whose poetry and writing has been widely published in many online magazines as well as in print magazines over the last  20 years or so. He is the author of several books such as “The Last Cigarette, The Collected Poems Of R.M. Engelhardt” and many others and in style is comparable to such writers as Nick Tosches, Charles Bukowski, Pessoa and even a bit of the mystic and Rimbaud are thrown in as well. What speaks to you in his poems is the crafting of the ordinary and its beauty as well as the gritty, daily reality of life and living in the 21st century. Engelhardt’s poems in this book, ”The Resurrection Waltz” Engelhardt also speaks about the questions and the relevancy of poetry and the place of the poet in a technology driven future age where it seems that the poem and poetry has been forgotten and or has been left for dead (Saint Poem).
There is even a piece in here where the poet turns to the late musician Warren Zevon and a bottle of scotch for answers to some of life’s more romantic questions. Overall? I enjoyed this book quite a bit and am glad I bought it.

WHERE TO GET THE RESURRECTION WALTZ:

 

SILENCE FALLS

SILENCE FALLS

 

Incantations

Psalms of syntax

Sonnets of dust

Stanzas of the night

Travelers by night, Nocturnes.

Silence.

“Silence, the words ever-moving into foolishness

Fading. The silence prolonged, so secretive of thought”

The Silence Falls.

Love, the, the most difficult of phrases,

The man of this phrase out of phase ~ fragments left of

What’s lost, out of time & out of place.

Silence Falls.

The spirit

Is the future,

The spirit is the flame

By the sea, by the light and by the storm

Returning, perceiving the great wheel turning

A vortex.

The past an abstract sky

The true song thru speech

As the veil will have it

All beauty dropped out of time, out of loneliness

Thru body and mind, soul.

These casualties all things

Becoming

Vox Verbum

Postremus Cantus.

As The Silence Falls

Words, Images Fading

Into history, voices poetry

The song an echo repeating

Into the void.

Tick

Tock

Tick

Tock

Tick

Next exit

To the place where

All our worlds meet

And end

And I will

Meet you there.
