Poetry with Parm

Writing is a passion many people experience after reading Tolkien's works. Come here to discuss and share your experiences with writing.

Poetry with Parm

Postby prmiller » Mon Dec 22, 2003 5:50 am

I have long used a thread by Evenstar_of_Imladris "'Tis True, No More Limericks"
and continually felt that niggling feeling that something was wrong in doing so.
Therefore, I have set up this thread, not merely for my own poetry, but for others
as well, that they will bring poems that we can enjoy together, and to see the ones
that life brings to my heart and then to this place.
Coffee, tea...and other delectables... will appear when imaginations bring them
to pass :-) !
This is a big step, a risk that may intrude on the goodwill of others
who have made threads for others to share.
If it turns out to be so, then I will acquiesce and take up
the task of posting poetry elsewhere.
Here, then, I present for all...

Poetry with Parm.

When Holly Decks Our Hearts

Bright green, as exclamation marks,

to brighten up the greyest spots.
Grim wars and crises surge and swell
cold crushing calm and piercing peace.
Yet in the heart where Christmas reigns,
no war, no grief its joy can cease.
May each of you, be thus endowed,
with joy so like the holly green,
be ever fresh and punctuate
your life with life by Life unseen.

Bright blessings,
Parm :)

Early Christmas Morn in Japan

Postby prmiller » Wed Dec 24, 2003 12:02 pm

Early Christmas Morn in Japan
Now all the trains have ended runs,
the bakers start their loaves and buns,
the Truckers find convenience stores
while I am hearing sighs and snores.

Out on a special midnight trek,
to warn us all how fire can wreck
the strongest home, a block patrol,
chants the motto -- bell-like toll.

The ramen sellers, in their vans,
are swift to gather pots and pans.
Wend back and forth down every street,
while officers survey their beat.

Some doors and windows here and there
now glow with colored lights and wear
their mantles made of wreaths and bows,
while we wish for Christmas snows.

At half-past three, the clock ticks on,
then back to bed to wait for dawn,
and fete that festive mood newborn --
and all of this on Christmas morn.

Bright blessings,
and a most delightful Christmas!
Parm :)

Mrs. Parm writes:
To Parm's friends at TORC:
At 12:30 p.m. Japan Standard Time, Parm was injured on his
bicycle by a motorist who did not see him going across a
crosswalk. While Parm's bicycle was completely mangled,
Parm himself was mercifully spared death, even though
the collision caused him to roll across TWO lanes of traffic.
Police called it miraculous, because we are in New Year's
rush, and traffic is heavy all over the place. What are Parm's
injuries? A badly swollen right knee...and that's it!

We are MOST grateful for this and I think it is important for
all you guys to know that, too, because he will not be online
for several days in order to rest.

Parm will be off his feet for three days, and go back for X-rays again.

The "other guy" is totally at fault and will pay for everything.
In Japan, usually foreigners get blamed for accidents, but this
time, because I was there, they were not so quick to point fingers
(I'm of Chinese/Japanese descent).

So, if you are saying your prayers tonight, thank the Lord that
your Lighthouse Beacon narrowly missed death.

Mrs. Parm
(sorry no smilies or anything because I'm new at all this)
Parm let me go online to talk.

The Unfairness of It All

Postby prmiller » Thu Jan 01, 2004 9:31 pm

The Unfairness of It All
While I may bring poetic joy,
today such rage flames in my heart
for I have found, when all is said,
I bear the blame, the greater part.
For I was not where I should be,
despite the signs or lack therein,
stay on the right, despite the signs,
>and I stay clear of pain and sin.
Each day, each month, each year I see,
where people go, and what they do,
follow signs and when they lack,
I ask police and see their view.
Yet, now! Yet, now! I'm in the wrong!
And why? "I am a foreigner" they say.
How could I understand their laws
and live my life the righteous way?
o, even though she did not look,
and even though she struck me flat,
they are exempt from any fault,
and once again, I hold my hat
and go contritely, now to beg
forgiveness on my wounded leg!

Oh fury!
Parm

The Thorns of Forgiveness

Postby prmiller » Fri Jan 02, 2004 9:30 am

The Thorns of Forgiveness
Christ wore, for me
upon that tree,
each thorn,
sin born.
in human plight,
through anger's night,
I raged and kicked
from thorns that pricked,
to claim my fruit
from anger's suit.
Good sister-saint,
I broke restraint
and let my stress
curse more than bless.
Tears prompt the task,
and praying ask,
"Lord take my thorn,
that I be shorn,
and slice apart
my sinning part;
take purging knife
that brings true life
and pruned, I live
to then forgive."
My tinselled crown<
I thus lay down
of self-served pride
that raged inside,
and take my place
within His Grace,
to see once more,
the thorns He bore.

Contrite I bring
this simple thing.
Good folk, I sinned.
Come healing Wind
and truest Fire
cause a pyre
of purging flame
to cleanse my shame
that Christ Divine
shall purely shine.<
Forgive me, all,
from such a fall.

Mea culpa,
Mea maxima culpa.


Parm

I Wonder If...

Postby prmiller » Mon Jan 19, 2004 10:37 pm

I Wonder If...
I wonder if performers read
the poems made and paeans sung?
I wonder if the the ones we love
know just how much our souls are stung
by honey bees of fleeting fame?
We know these souls and all they do
that rivals any private thought
that I may have regarding you.
Hooray for all such friends who clasp
such loyalty, like hoops of steel
around their hearts, and ever sing
about their stars and how they feel.
I truly hope they venture here,
to see such poems and such praise
to spur them on to greater deeds<
and wisely spend their nights and days.

Bright blessings,
Parm :-) !

Hello all , I was given directions that brought me here , as I was told it was a good place to post a poem I wrote this morning. So here it is:<BR><BR> TEARS OF THE SUN<BR>If the sun had a thought what would it be ,<BR>He rises every day strong and mighty.<BR>But even he has dark days,<BR>Sometimes he can not pierce the cloudy haze.<BR>He has seen all from the beginning of days ,<BR>What are his thoughts now of what he views with his gaze?<BR>Does he look upon us with dismay ,<BR>for what he saw on that day?<BR>We have marched with armies ,<BR>Killed and made laim ,<BR>scourged peoples , and took their homes with our claims.<BR>Many past peoples have paid him tribute ,<BR>But mostly ignored now , for he is mute.<BR><BR>We do not marvel at his endless power ,<BR>But we can not last to see his last hour.<BR>For in that hour we shall be long done,<BR>we shall not shed any tears for the last passing of the sun.<BR><BR>For when this prophecy is done ,<BR>The last to shed tears will be the sun! <BR><BR><BR><BR>

After hearing about htis place, and being asked to check it out, I’m finally here.<BR><BR>Nice poems, PRM. You’re a good poet as usual.<BR><BR>Rwhen, I read your article in the Reading Room. It’s a good one, and I like your poem as well.<BR><BR>Thanks for the compliments, Aglanor! You gave them in a nice poem.<BR><BR>Many of you showed care and concern in a nice poem. Sorry I missed out on the accident, PRM. I didn’t have computer access during that time. Don’t feel responsible.

I like you Reading Room poem as well.<BR><BR>Nice poem, Lothloriel. You should submit it for the Reading Room.<BR><BR>That’s a nice winter poem, Ring.<BR><BR>A good poem about faith in God, Old_Begonia. It got me near to tears.<BR><BR>Nice poem in appreciation of PRM, Elengil.<BR><BR>A good poem on going to bed, Jil.<BR><BR>Jaspur, that is an unique topic. It’s beautiful.
