The Maze of Truth
by Lamar Yousif

Hello, I'm aiming to get better at writing poetry. So, I decided the best course of action was to write whatever came to mind to the best of my ability and then get personalized guidance rather than the generic and repetitive "helpful tips" I find on websites. Be as mean and brutal as you see fit, as long as it's honest and helpful. If you can, give me tips on what to name this thing, I think "The Maze of Truth" is a bit bland. Anyway, here it is:

The Maze of Truth

We all jump often, and leaves glide down, but birds are the ones with flight

Humans try so hard to dream away,

As from reality, we all try to flee.

Paraphrase on Anacreon: Ode to the Swallow
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Thou indeed, little Swallow,
A sweet yearly comer.
Art building a hollow
New nest every summer.
And straight dost depart
Where no gazing can follow.
Past Memphis, down Nile!
Ay! but love all the while
Builds his nest in my heart,
Through the cold winter-weeks:

Gulls
by William Carlos Williams

My townspeople, beyond in the great world,
are many with whom it were far more
profitable for me to live than here with you.
These whirr about me calling, calling!
and for my own part I answer them, loud as I can,
but they, being free, pass!
I remain! Therefore, listen!
For you will not soon have another singer.

First I say this: you have seen

Twenty Four Crows
by Gonzalo Mendez

With my hand to the sun
I count them from left to right
Oh, how they scream
this murder of crows.

They dance and clamor
encouraging the sun to set faster
craving the arrival of shade
to offer rest for their tired talons.

Fest Dressed
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Colors in the trees
They're decked out for summer fest
in raspberry days
At last the get together
Seasons come but once a year

Here comes red robin
for the sunshine singalong
as jay sings the blues
amidst dark berries galore

Mirabilis jalapa
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

All the hot summer days I am found, sleeping late in my bed,
Dreaming of dusk and getting beauty rest, before sunset red;
For I'm an opal night owl, my scent blooms open all night long.
I am called Mirabilis jalapa, or four o'clocks, adoring birdsong.
I am yellow and deep pink stripes, beloved by hummingbirds,
And grape sun butterflies, when time seems to go backwards.
I keep a daily appointment with destiny, at about four o'clock,
As I love pearly moon more than sun, when dancing in my frock!

Dancing With Daisies
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

whirling in daisies
multicolored blooms in hair
summertime affair

Caressing petals
Light steps frolic in beauty
as breezes chase blooms.
Raspberry days so fruity
Clouds stand still for yellow sheen.

the fair den o' alyth
by J. Burgess

plant me somewhere nice,
somewhere up the fair den o’ alyth
next to a pine tree or hanging willow
just plant me somewhere nice!

i’ll absorb and swallow
through my eyes and mouth
i’ll spring out soil -
pleading out my hands
touching the sky.

Fly November, Fly
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

Rich
colors
fly away
Southbound birds too
Lovely November
of lonely skies
pink clouds glide
Sun sinks
rich
