Opera Logic

In opera, wars end
In strolls among flowers,
Coruscating country folk--
Strife flees a jolly
Polka, jokes upon passion, power.
In opera, wars end; hagiarchy
Bends to lovers'
Tears, children praying.
In opera-- fears, betrayal,
Insurrection-- whispers
Snag upon gardens
Over reunion, pardon.
Voices blend --in opera
Wars end.


  1. A truly excellent poem, Geo...I especially like the ending: "--in opera wars end."
    Oh if only in real life too...:)

  2. Perhaps we should write an opera about current events. Wars end.

  3. Helloooo, fellow Poet.

    Nice cycle.

  4. This is a very cool way to express the idea of the end of all wars. Would that we could see this just up the road.

  5. I like how this reads - as if it has the peaks and troughs of opera notes. And "coruscating" is a great word. Very nice, Geo. Thanks for sharing it.

  6. It is amazing how you curve your writing to blend with your thought flow that is towards ending wars. How I wish politicians were poets.Alas.
