    Default POTD, at my home poetry site....

    Awarded Poem Of The Day (aka-POTD) at my home poetry site, today, 4-20-2019...


    As I Walk Hard Narrow Path, Dust In My Mouth

    I walk hard narrow path, dust in my mouth
    Just a poor farm-boy, born in the dear South,
    With edges slippery and turns so quick
    Oft so weary, too often so damn sick.

    Trudging on through, into midnight's dark cast
    Praying my courage will forever last,
    And in my dreams, I meet my angel here
    She of sweetest heart and devoid of fear.

    Each new sunset , I watch those red-burnt rays
    Muttering words, as only poor boy prays,
    In wind's soft blows, I hear, "patience rewards"
    Step thee lively, avoid the broken shards!

    I walk hard narrow path, dust in my mouth
    Just a poor farm-boy, born in the dear South.

    R.J. Lindley ,
    July 11th, 1973
    Sonnet, ( Working on the farm before sun-up until after sunset)

    Note: I decided this morn, to bring this one right on out of my private journal.
    Hope you may enjoy it, as I wrote it at age 19..
    Any that worked on the farms in the 60-s, 70's, and 80's, will certainly get this..

    *********************************************

    I can never understand how they choose, as in the last week Ive posted several poems far better than this one-- in my opinion.
    Yet this struck a cord with the selection committee it seems.
    I think any of my 6 sonnets are better or either of my dark bliss poems dedicated to Poe.
    Not griping , just always perplexed at the choices they make when it comes to my poetry being honored.-Tyr

    As I read this early poem of yours I was brought right onto that dusty road with you, Robert. I am from the south too and I know farm life is hard, and it was especially hard back in those days. Who could have known that it would produce a great poet like yourself? Congratulations on receiving POTD and Happy Easter.

    Thank you my dear friend. I wrote that sonnet while looking back at those years of childhood toil on the farm. Now at age 65, I'd give almost anything to be young and on that farm again, even with its very hard work and long days!

    A fine write Robert, bringing back the years as a teenager so congratulations on being POTD. I worked on the farm late 60s early 70s but I'm in Scotland so our fields weren't so dry more a case of being damp and wet. Have a great Easter weekend, Gordon

    Thank you my fine friend. You are blessed to have never worked on a farm methinks. As it is extremely hard work. long hours and even sometimes dangerous in cases of working with heavy machinery, felling trees or not stopping in extreme heat- as oft the job must be done in order to get the full days work in each and every day.

    Love Was Sent, Treasure That Healed Two Crushed Hearts,
    A Collaboration with Susan Ashley


    Life shattered, soul crushed, another one has perished
    once gone from this world was all she ever cherished
    No amazing and joyful tales to tell the kids
    just naked silence, from raging of black rapids
    From heavens above, truest of gifts handed down
    romance sent, from He that wears faith's eternal crown.

    In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn
    Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn

    Love, its Lights flamed, happiness needs no explaining
    summer warmth came from darkness rapidly waning
    O' what glory, shall your heart forever hold mine
    our sweet blessing, came from angelic hands divine
    Within nights, kisses that sated our hot desires
    came oaths of eternal love that never expires.

    In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn
    Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn

    Our soaring passions’ pure as nightingale’s song
    enrapturing seduction righted what was wrong
    upon our heartstrings’ twilight music we did fly
    as supernova lusts did unfurl ‘cross the sky -
    scintillating stardust showered us with magic
    our souls’ kissed in sparkling bliss since events tragic.

    In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn
    Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn

    Dreamy nectar - ripened wine, whetted revival
    as I sipped upon your essence for survival
    rousing the wild-honey luscious look in your eyes
    behind ambrosial mist passionate beauty lies
    on thirsty tongues of fire we burned ‘till morning’s light
    melting past the pain in moonflower swirls of night

    In that gloom and doom came our Spring's resplendent morn
    Love, joyful sound of Living, thus we were reborn

    Robert J. Lindley and Susan Ashley

    This new poem, has been awarded Poem of the Day, at my home poetry site-- 7-21-2019...


    Prayer For Her, This Wounded Heart Healed


    Please keep this dream in my lost life
    remove painful sting and life filled with strife
    Let her dance and sing another sweet tune
    as I hold her under this, merciful God's moon.
