The sun sulks, eclipsed,
denying us another day.
In a series of silent nights,
a fluorescent moon hovers overhead,
our eye in the sky…
then blown aside by winds of ire
from stirring Giant on high.
Timid raindrops crawl across a telephone wire
like cautious children anticipating a slide…
as the heavens unfold pounding its wrath upon us–
angry thunder in rolling arpeggios
storms down with vengeance.
It took thousands of years
for the universe to arrange for us to meet by chance
–a chance of a lifetime;
Then a lifetime of chances
squandered by our witless folly and misdeeds.
Callow youth and shallow beauty
fading into senescence and sleep.
The city mourns. Autumn tolls for her dead.
Summer has been slain–
her fruits lay lifeless, deserted in decay.
Soon Winter shall come to cover and conceal
silently effacing all traces that we ever were.
Coming soon – The upcoming release of Ronaye’s book by British publisher in London, England; to be available on Amazon.
…with a broken wing
the Human Spirit
poems by Ronaye Hudyma
Whether contemporary, classic, or peppered with Elizabethan eloquence, this profound ensemble of 130 poems is not stationary. They move as if conducted with a maestro’s baton –fluid between the euphoria of life and love, the drama, the anguish of death and loss, with every nuance of human emotion spilling upon the pages.
They are poignant words written with the transparency of youth, gathering maturity and experience, evolving to wisdom, into the spiritual realm.
This is not just poetry. There are a million stories in each poem. Once for each of us. From the teenager discovering their individuality, the young adult challenged by relationships and the world around them, to the Elder denizens of Earth, who cherish their memories as veterans of life, this is a book to be read and reread, a keepsake to console, embrace and affirm your recognition of the truth within yourself that is already there.
