How to Leave the World that Worships should you ?
by Ros Barber British Poet (Born: 1964)
Let faxes butter-curl on dusty shelves.
Let junk mail build its castles in the hush
of other people’s halls. Let deadlines burst
and flash like glorious fireworks somewhere else.
As hours go softly by, let others curse
the roads where distant drivers queue like sheep.
Let e-mails fly like panicked, tiny birds.
Let phones, unanswered, ring themselves to sleep.
Above, the sky unrolls its telegram,
immense and wordless, simply understood:
you’ve made your mark like bird tracks in the sand -
now make the air in your lungs your livelihood of Land...
See how each wave arrives at last to heave
itself upon the beach and vanish. Breathe.
Ros Barber (born 1964) is a British poet and writer. Barber was born in Washington D.C., where her father was working for the US government, and grew up in Essex, later moving to Sussex to study for a Biology degree. Both parents are physicists by training, and Barber has a strong interest in science and mathematics which comes through in the formal aspects of many of her poems. Her first full collection of poetry, How Things Are On Thursday (Anvil, 2004) came after seventeen years of appearing frequently in anthologies, poetry magazines and prize shortlists. Not the Usual Grasses Singing (Four Shores, 2005), the result of a public art commission, is a book about the Isle of Sheppey written entirely in rhyming couplets. Her next book from Anvil, Material, was due to be published in early 2008. She also writes fiction.
Quote: “It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.” “Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.” –Erma Bombeck
The highest person is he or she who is of most use to humankind. -Alibin Abi Talib , “Master of the Path”
Thoughts are things and powerful things that when mixed with purpose persistence and burning desire translates into riches and other material objects. (Born: ? ) R & B Soul Female Singer Courtly C #459 &
