Eastertide The Hushed Lament The Poet


JAN OSKAR HANSEN
Eastertide
A cloud of polished steel hangs over The village, hollowed eyed people Look up to the sky Where is spring this year? Like the man on the bridge they can take no more. For Paulo, the old carpenter it was all too much, no wine could still his angst of not seeing another spring and his nightly screams echoed till dawn. Dogs barked his time was over hanging in the shed between his tractor and work-bench. This shook the village out of stupor No more waiting for what may never come, a pig was slaughtered its blood an offering to life itself. The feast lasted for days.

CHELSE ELLIOT
The Hushed Lament 
(everything)
The hushed lament of my broken heart Resonates in the mouth of the blue whale Sighs whistle sadly within granite cliff crevices And whiffle across yellow-stalked grass Mournful whispers of summer Swooping swiftly toward the rock strewn shore The hushed lament of my broken heart Scatters on wings of churning waves Brittle plumes of salt spray Reach with shimmering brilliance toward The weightless crest of hopelessness Indulgent memories whip Across my face in wet tendrils Of faded clinging curls, salty tears swell The hushed lament of my broken heart Carries me in determined arms fearlessly Floating, floating The sea swirls sweetly, alone Floating, floating The hushed lament of my broken heart Resonates in the mouth of the blue whale And somehow it resonates in you, my love Encompassing everything, everything And the sea swirls sweetly, alone
