9 by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 27. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,290. Language: English. Published: April 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.

A Respite From Clarity by Rori O'Keeffe
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 4. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,410. Language: English. Published: July 16, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Not knowing is to see clearly; knowing is to see without clarity. In these eight poems I drop back to a knowing point of view, in the hopes of understanding the world and how I fit into it a little better. Written with hesitancy, and comprehensible in only the slightest time, I draw a world in these poems that is doomed to obey the laws of Nature, regardless of what we may wish. (Mature themes.)

There would be no need for hope, were it not for the tragic dimensions of life; and so we hope for many things - and love is at the crux of all we desire. No life can be lived without tragedy; yet, sadly, hope can be lost. To hold onto hope it is necessary to recall what it is we hope for most in this world and beyond - a connection with others through love. Enjoy these four poems, and ponder.

I have not submitted my poetry for publication before. It was written for myself, family, and friends. Now that I am 75, I thought I might see if anyone else liked it.
