Parsifal Rhymes Forever

Parsifal Rhymes Forever

INTRODUCTION

This book was written in the late nineteen eighties and early nineteen nineties and most of it is a reflection on the lonely days and passing seasons, through the days and nights of boredom and time, where by writing poetry, it was a pastime of expressing ideas and thoughts from the changes in the weather and long and lonely hours of self dicispline, reading, learning and extracting meaning from deep dark memories of the past and predicting the not too distant future in passages of seasonal change and time patterns. The fact that the natural laws of the seasons and loneliness of trying for independence, which is self supportive living, is a challenge and was then a much sort after theme. The hard days of self denial and wanting love and marriage, but not being allowed to enter in to the beauty of the relationship brought out and made use of time by spending hour upon hour in writing more meaningful and colourful words to mean something in rhyme. What seemed like endless nights of reading and writing is in this, what turned out to be written in a book, which has come about from that and now I have called Parsifal Rhymes Forever. This book of poetry which is really a reflection on the weather and the whether a rhyme is clever enough to rhyme forever or just ends in a forgotton memory of some dark distant thoughts passing in the midnight hour to lose themself. In the middle of the black hour of the night and the dismal thoughts that come or go form what seems like the medievil days and times of knights, which are able to get into a book that is published and worth while reading. In the now, not to distant future of the past, the passed and failed, the nights and days of literature, of both reading and writing and the paradigm shift of two to three decades of time, that has been kept to reveal the memory of what the days were like and the life-time since.  What would have never been, or come about, has been reflected in transcending verse, that is expressed in poetry for you to read in the here and now. So I longingly anticipate and look forward to the reflections of the book of verse of what I have called Parsifal Rhymes Forever. The Autumn and the fading red, yellow, orange and brown falling leaves, the new life of the spring, the hot sun in the summer and the cold and chilly nights of winter all have different meanings and are a poets ideal source of inspiration, in time and rhyme through the physical reality of the emotional seasons of life and what a soul dwelling on God continuously can do to entertain himself or herself in the hope of a marriage in heaven. When the ideal uptopia of the real message and meaning of life, are relationships with the almighty God to refect upon in the past, present and future and for family reraltionships built on that love, then there is peace. Therefore things are not dead and dismal but bright and happy, from urban transending and transcribing for community living, free from fear of war and hate, in a meaningful and loving, rhyming season of life and the liberty and rhyming poetry becomes a heaven. Please enjoy the new book of what is just the book from the past times in writing of  some of my work that is yours and mine in Parsifal Rhymes Forever. Darel.
