Two Poems, with Figurative Language
Says Mr. Dennis Siluk, when asked to review his poetry somewhat, for he hesitates all the time when I ask him to so; I can tell you. Anyhow, he said to me (responding more on poem #728, "Derivative Echoes"): "Figurative language, meaning words used to refer to something that you don't really mean, is used here to make noises, as are metaphors sometimes. Probably the reason I used figurative language imagery here was to tie the ideas and feelings my poem [s] expresses [ness] to the physical world in which I want it to exist." He lost me somewhere along the line, but it sounded good when I read the poems. Rosa Penaloza.
The Bear-men of Qolqepunku
High up in the Andes of Peru
Glacier, frost and snow
Dressed in furry clocks and masks
Of sacred healing powers
The Bear-men, they are called:
Guardians of the ice
They cut the ice in solid blocks
To family, friends, and livestock
Ah! Sixteen-thousand feet high, comes
Year, after year, after year.
The Bear-men-, silently watch
As if in thin air!...
They've now decide to leave the ice
As warming temperatures rise?
This is helping the Ice Cap
Perhaps this is a whisper?
"Is this the world's end?"
I would show you love in a handful of clouds-
Could I find the clouds, and find the love;
Fallen angels had love from heaven,
In hell one loves lust and thus, would be
Unhappy in Heaven I imagine?;
Looking for?? We're living for?
?with aches and pains in the mind
Fear of death-nymphs (well dressed)
Light; perfect pitch, more questions than
