Ravens and Dragons

Two souls within a crowded city, sit and ponder to unfurl 

The way of people who rush around, in illusionary worlds.

Dreamers of another age, they sit on bench, in vision engage   

Invisible to all who walk on by, their minds within another age.

~~

An age of Knights, and Ravens wings, when crest of honour were true

Finding lodgings now in a world of  make, mend, and do.

Wandering hearts and friends for life, whose blankets are the stars

No one stopping to ask how deeply go their scars.

~~

A life of walking through concrete and glass, they escape all that  the world enslaves

A Camelot Castle in cardboard built, to shelter in Merlin’s Cave

Their quest to venture and wander, in a land that never sleeps

Did it ever occur, just how many more have wandering feet?

~~

In a world of Progress, as the Earth cries her many showers

In a world of unseeing eyes, in their high raised towers

The two on bench, oblivious to all,  look above city blocks

As  the Raven Crows and  arches, as Beyond this realm they look

~~

Heaven smiles down, never missing a beat

As a Rainbow lake descends right before their seat

No crock of Gold, except for in hearts Raven’s Song

A Standard flying, showing  where the Rainbows Warriors Belong.

~~

Musing  in a world of both present and past

No longer  held prisoner within  high walls of glass

Dragons return no longer slain, fly  high in their new formed freedom

As two dreamers Dream, creating their own Magical Kingdom

The two images were a creation using PowerPoint to add the silhouettes and alter the the images digitally, A first for me.

The above poem  I wrote is an introduction to GallyBloggers~ Scarecrows One and All.

Some of my blogging friends already know Dewin. He introduced me to this collaboration of Raven’s 12 of which he is part. 

GallyBloggers shares poems and thoughts written and shared on this site by the homeless upon the streets of the UK.

A plight so many are finding themselves in more and more on many shores around the globe. 

Please be enthralled, enchanted and motivated, by the poetry written upon their blog. As I hope you go and support them .. None of us ever know when we ourselves will face Crisis in our lives .

 Homelessness is on the increase, and within our own town I see many who are living on the streets.. So next time you pass by a homeless person, please do not just look the other way.. Each has a story, and there but for the Grace of our circumstances, we could all find ourselves in Crisis and Homeless.

    Lovely poem and imagination Sue. I just started re-reading the Mists of Avalon. It must be fun to live in the land of Lancelot, King Arthur, fairies, and dragons. I’ll check out Dewin’s blog too. Thanks.

    I love this! It took me to a place long ago and far away from the “progress” of this realm our bodies inhabit. We need this escape from time to time. That’s one reason I have allowed so many trees to grow around my little urban cottage.

      Thank you dear Mar.. We are so lucky having a roof over our heads.. Anything that can bring awareness to the plight of many.. I know a friend whom I speak on WP said where she lives in the USA, whole families are homeless, living out of cars.. and how things got so bad in 2008.. When mortgages foreclosed and many were turned out of their homes..

      Here in the UK we send millions of pounds in oversea aid.. Yet fail to support our own.. We live in a crazy world.. ❤ xxx

    Lovely. One person’s falling-apart hovel is another’s castle of dreams. Good point. Here, a lot of homelessness is from the failure of the state to help those with mental illness, placing the burden on families who can ill afford the expense, having their own issues. Some people can’t rely on their families.

    A really nice poem, Sue, that does indeed make you look within the minds of homeless people and see them for the humans that they are, and not just something/one to walk passed.
    And well done on those PowerPoint creations! I love them. It’s a fiddly way of doing things, but a fun way to pass the time! It’s still part of the creative process which makes the time spent worthwhile.
    Hope you have a good evening, Sue.

    I always feel emotional when my mind turns to the homeless, dear Sue. These two lines really chimed with me: “Wandering hearts and friends for life, whose blankets are the stars. No one stopping to ask how deeply go their scars.” — that’s just the thing, everyone has a story, and we have learn to look behind our preconceptions and appearances to see the whole picture, to engage and find the person.

      Thank you Dear Hariod.. I remember one time in our time several years ago now when I was working.. Stopping to ask a young man who was sat with his dog, chatting to him to ask where he was from.. He said he had traveled from Manchester. He was playing a mouth organ.. I didn’t put money into his cap.. I walked on into the shop to do my shopping. But on my way out I dropped into his lap the bought sandwiches and crisps and a canned cold drink. and a pull ring can of dog food.., His smile and grateful thanks were my reward..
      I always buy The Big Issue and over the years a man who regularly sold it in our town got back on his feet again.. Now there is a lady from Romania who doesn’t speak much English, but her smile is solid gold..
      Thank you dear Hariod.. Your presence here is always greatly appreciated <3.. Much Love..

    Sad situations appear daily where people have lost employment, health, home, and even family. Putting their life back together is no easy task. Time spent ‘on the street’ searching for answers grows longer and longer and then becomes a way of life for some. There are countless homeless in the world. Some have just given up searching for help and no longer believe it will work for them.
    Thank you for the kindness you offer these dear souls and all peoples.
    Many blessings to them and you dear Sue, Eddie

    Such a meaningful piece of poetry, and I love you brought together and collided both modern and medieval words so flawlessly. “Wandering hearts and friends for life, whose blankets are the stars” Is my favourite line. Something about it just screams cozy to me. Who doesn’t like a cozy blanket no matter which bed we sleep in, and a good blanket is like one of a kind, just like how each star is one of a kind and unique 🙂

    Brenda mentioned a good point, where someone’s fortune is another’s gain and vice-versa. How true. No two of us will be on the same continuum. Some of us might be still be learning lessons of the past, while others finding their path forging ahead, and some of just simply kicking back and enjoying the present. And so we are all different dreamers but we all still live in this one world and make it all the more beautiful and colourful together 🙂

    Hope you are having a good time outdoors with the garden and soil and the plants. Make the most of the good weather. We are having one last gasp of summer here in Australia, and I am lapping it all up. Take care 🙂

    When I started reading this poem Sue, I thought it is going to be about love and dreams of the ‘two souls’ but the way it proceeds to unleash the agony of those who yearn for the warmth of a home is indeed touching… ‘No one stops’ sums up the dilemma of modern era. The scars don’t move anybody any more…that is the price we have to pay for modernization and so-called civilized progress!

    Hey Sue,

    Hungry having flown northwards, I and Raven’s 12 were eager to be sated by a feast of words. We were not at all disappointed, your table is a rich and sumptuous banquet. Thank you, we knew it would be 🙂

    ‘Wandering hearts and friends for life, whose blankets are the stars.’ Elegantly descriptive. There is such beauty in the tragedy of homelessness.

    Wonderfully penned, imaginative, poignant, sincere and loving, it is a poem of encouragement and support. An artful and creative narrative foregrounding heart felt emotion with truth. The story you tell reflects far deeper truths and real concerns at the very heart of society, issues affecting both individuals and far larger groups. Sadly many still feel marginalised, remain unsupported, and often exist adrift dispersed to the margins of life living on breadcrumbs. Some cannot help themselves change their personal circumstance, whilst others, a minority choose to live independently, whether because it I all they have really known and trust, or because they value freedom far more than convention.

    We are very grateful to have you introduce Raven’s 12 and acknowledge Galybloggers, thank you Sue, your kindness and generosity is always very much appreciated. supportive and expressive of your own concerns. Raven’s 12 seek only to give a small presence to the voices emanating as words from the hearts of its contributors. Each contributor is homeless, the exception being myself. I frequent their company, spend time with them individually and do what I am able to encourage them to write. In return for their companionship and friendship, I provide a little artwork for the blog and administrate it, give up my time freely and willingly, offer cups of sweetly sugared coffee and share a sausage roll or two.

    Very quickly, I have come to readily appreciate and value their acquaintance, and feel enriched by the life stories they share. They are wonderful people although not always the easiest to meet up with, but I hope Gallybloggers will expand as a site as contributions become more frequent

    For those who have already been encouraged to visit Gallybloggers, may I extend my personal thank you. And on behalf of Raven’s 12 say ‘welcome’ and thank you for supporting our honest intentions. Your visit is gratefully appreciated.

    Perhaps the wider world is also damaged, also adrift existing evolving on the ragged margins of common sense. The World feels ill-conceived, convoluted, inequitable, unfair, unjust, and largely ill-fitting for this ‘modern’ world. Governments appear all too frequently to pander to capitalists and bankers at the expense of their people, whilst American Presidents toy with their people as a resource for commercial enterprise and exploitation. How affecting will Trumps vile policies be on the lives of millions?

    The world is shattered and shattering, administered and managed by unwitting souls eager to self-efface, unwilling to listen, absorb, synthesise into effective policy making the voices speaking loudly from the heart of real communities and cardboard cities. The World needs to radically change if it is to be inclusive and progress universally, if it is to ever stop turning on an axis of fool’s gold spun by the false hand of wealth. The evil that is perpetuated under the banner of civilised politics is essentially a propensity to greed, wealth and power and the preservation of fiefdoms of power. The Internet appears alive with people expressing contempt and dissatisfaction. One wonders when politicians will ever begin to actually listen to the people who vote them into power?

    Well Sue, sitting back to perch on my napping branch with a full stomach readily nourished, my mind mindful and contemplative, I await the coming dawn from a quiet treetop in woodland edging your blog. At sunrise, Raven’s 12 and I return to a land of red Dragons and black Ravens. Thank you for your hospitality.

    Thank you also for an excellent poem, thoroughly enjoyed….and excellent artwork! Seems you are a digital wizard as well as drummer, strummer and dreamwalker! Such gifts Sue, always so blessed.

    Namaste 🙂

        Our pleasure Sue. Thank you for a kind reply.

        We relish the fact people are waking up and feeling more able to readily express themselves assertively. Certainly the Internet has opened up avenues of purposeful enquiry so that discerning minds can approach truth seeking from may different perspectives. A balanced approach is essential in a diverse world of varied opinion and constant media incited rhetoric: harmony cannot ever really be harmonious without balance.

        As Dewin Nefol I have enjoyed digital artworking for many years. I find it provides me with opportunity to work, rework and rework again the same image without ever having to start again. I rely on a process that allows the image to develop organically. I am not certain I’d have the ability to use paint, pencil and paper in the same way. I am not a good draftsperson, much better with form than detail, and not patient enough…digital art is instant.

        Thanks again Sue. Have a great weekend. Look after you and enjoy the Derbyshire peaks. Perfect weather for a wander.

        Namaste 🙂

    Hey Sue,

    Hoping you’ll not mind a second comment, it is relevant from a distance 🙂

    With regards to Politics, the state of the world and ambiguous disinformation being fed to the people by governments, a good friend introduced me to this former Canadian Cabinet Minister Paul Hellyer: http://www.paulhellyerweb.com/

    Aged 92 he has little to lose revealing his truth to the world regarding the corruption and scandal of the World’s banking systems together with other commentaries on governments presented by video links. Interestingly Paul Hellyer is also the highest ranking government official to come forward stating categorically that America are in possession of alien technologies, sourced, given and engineered by other worldly entities. I find this fascinating because Paul Hellyer was a former Defence Minister.

    I hope people will give Paul Hellyer a little time and space. His commentary is a meta-narrative for the symptoms we see at see at street level such as homelessness and disquiet, of corruption and government agendas that are failed. I find his thoughts an invaluable resource and mention him freely to others when discussing processes undermining the harmony of our world

    Thank you Sue for space to mention this. Enjoy a wonderful weekend…perhaps allotment free with chance to linger longer creating artwork with new toys?

    Namaste 🙂

It is disappointing when videos are taken-down but by the time that happens most of the interested world have already seen it…the Internet is a powerful medium for expression, a powerful weapon if wielded wisely by those with honest, sincere, and truthful intentions. Curiously the more complex the laws become regarding media, publishing, and censorship, the longer it seems to take to go through legal processes to have them removed. Mostly that involves convoluted nonsense and high earnings for lawyers. Months later when resolution is arrived at, it is too late. Crazy.

        Indeed Sue, we live in a world of make-believe, fairy-tale, illusion, delusion, story, and fantasy. It is a stage upon which we play a part, and personally I think it better to choose the character we want to play than have life choose it for us. Never sheep Sue, Snow Leopards, Lionesses, Eagles, Visionaries and Seers. And proud to be uniquely different. Me, I love being a little crazy 🙂

        Namaste 🙂

    Oh Sue, I like how this poem takes me to a land of fantasy and dragons, while also speaking to the inward soul – it’s like there’s the two themes playing off one another! Wonderful poem 😀 ❤

    Well, what can I say that has not been said about your beautiful poem Sue? Except perhaps to add that we now live back in the land of Arthur and Merlin, so, not far from conscious thought in remembrance of a time when I shared the same space as they did, which I happen to believe is just a stones throw down the road from our little cottage. Needless to caution that dragons took on a different beingness which we would have no difficulty in recognising today. 🙂 Love, David

    This is beautiful, sweet Sue! I realize I’m a little late to the comment box – eep! hehe – but I love how you call attention to that which is unseen and the symbolism of the Raven. The Raven and the smaller crow have flourished “invisibly” because they have learned to blend in as a matter of survival. But, they’re there if you look hard enough. The symbolism between the subject matter of your poem and that of the raven is incredibly parallel and powerful! You are incredible with your word, metaphor and thinking. Sending you big hugs and wishes for a wonderful, wonderful week! xo

    Well, with Canadian average home prices in the million and up range, we will soon be seeing not only dreamers out there. While it is so that we have the social support looking after us, in fact, many people fall through the cracks and they are completely unprotected and forgotten. Mental health as if receives more support now, but it is a big issue. There are so many potential threats that don’t allow the human mind to thrive, but make it weaker and weaker. My personal opinion is that mental illnesses originate in the same place where all other illnesses do: in the 100% chemical and polluted environment and food.
    It felt there is a small bit of nostalgia in your poem. I feel like that sometimes, too. We have lost something along the way. Something big, important and irrevocable. I would not try to define it, but we are not always on the right path.
    The dragons that fly free is a good symbol. Yes, we have been boxed in ahead of time.

    Brilliant poem Sue, I think that has to be one of my top favourites 🙂 I also am a dreamer from another age…one that has not yet happened, at least here on Earth 😉 Your pictures are excellent and your forays into the workings of PowerPoint are very impressive. It’s amazing just what you can do with PP when you delve a little. I used it for a long time before I moved onto photo-editing software 🙂 xxx

    Loved reading the poem, Sue. It is beautiful and so thoughtful in the way you have delved into the world of homeless people, who like the ravens are oblivious to all, though they happen to be very much a part of the system.
    I have not at all been on the blog for some time. I intended to catch up today and this is the first post I read, and am so happy that I did so. Love & Regards, Somali

    Lots of interesting elements here. Eloquently discussed the wandering feet and broadest minds, missing nothing that goes on in the city theater; between the magical skies and selfish homes.
    Please consider visiting my blog, and i would love your views on some of the social issues I’m exploring.
    Happy Easter n have a good time with the family.

    Hi Sue,
    Thank you for such an enchanting poem. Sorry I missed it earlier. Keeping up with the blogs I follow has been challenging lately, but I keep at it. This poem conjures up my current obsession, Game of Thrones. While it is violent and cruel at times, the characters are exceptional and the otherworldly realms capture my imagination and longing for beauty and adventure. So glad you also introduced WP to Dewin’s new venture. I love what he has created, a novel way to help heal the sometimes forgotten in our society.

    Happy Easter with love, LInda

    A beautiful poem Sue. Long ago I found myself in a very different place with too much baggage behind me and nothing it seemed in front of me. Someone reached out a hand thankfully otherwise I am not sure where I might have ended up. People find themselves homeless for so many reasons and their voices and words need to be heard.

    For me Sue that is a sad but very insightful writing, sad because it is true in so many ways, and insightful as it gives us a look into the the progress of Mankind whilst missing the very basics of our living, trapped in a progressive material world while leaving others behind.

      Yes agreed Ian… in our so called society.. In our town the local government said to the local press we did not have a homeless problem in our town.. Yet I saw at least 7 in one place sleeping rough.. those were late rises.. Sigh.. They, the local authorities even stopped a soup kitchen set up on the local market stalls at night, by volunteers, closing it saying it was a health and safety hazard .. While the other day I read £18,000 had been spent on a sculptured art.. Not in our town.. but just showing us how priorities have gone haywire and they would sooner spend on a piece of art than to help the homeless. Sad

    Stunning pictures and heartfelt words, Sue or should that be heartfelt pictures and stunning words? Mmm… However profoundly and relevant issues are brought to our attention leaves no confusion in the mind. Thank you for sharing your beautifully eloquent imagination juxtaposed against harsh reality – it focuses the mind and shows us where our responsibilities lie – to take care of those who are in need and to pay attention to what surrounds us.
    ‘…whose blanket are stars ..’ – I love that!
    Love and blessings dear Sue..
