Preface


Life is a matter that we all know of, yet a complicated and delicate topic that one struggles to understand fully. How should we go about talking of life? What can convey who we are?

Through writing we express ourselves. My father, Yution Keckith’s second volume of poetry, The Language Of Life, explores the spirit, times, travels and tales of fantastic poets from around the world through their natural and common language of verse, capturing and sharing their lives through their work.

This collection is a glimpse at the differences and many similarities our lives share, no matter what land we hail from or what era we live in. My father has continued bringing together favorite works, an endeavor that he began with A World Of Words: Collected Poetry Of Eath Volume One. In this second entry to the series, he has included poets of The Pre-Reign, First Reign, and Second Reign Eras.

Also within these pages are more of his own poems, such as the title piece The Language Of Life, and an in-depth look into the personal backstories of each writer through the biographies he crafted himself. These follow the poems at the ending of the tome, for those of us who delight in a little historic insight.

Enjoy this journey of poetic life.


--- Quilla Keckith





RL Note


I present this book as it should be if someone living on Eath read it. Except for the cover and this note, of course, and a few changes where my name appears. Enjoy and have a wonderful day.


--- Rafael Lopez



The Language Of Life is the second volume of verse in the Collected Poetry Of Eath series, featuring works by various invented poets who will seem quite real by the end of the book. The poets each have their own voice and style, along with detailed histories presented by Rafael Lopez whose first collection, A World Of Words, won First Place for Poetry in The Royal Dragonfly Book Awards of 2014. The World Of Eath is a fantasy realm created by Rafael at age 11. Some of the poetry in this and his first book were written as a teenager.

The Poetry





Shared Words


by Yenba


In the art of words

In the heart of stories

Hope is kindled

In a world

Conveyed

Conveyed by imagination

By a reader’s own life

By a reader’s own hopes

And a connection

Between writer

And reader

A connection of thoughts

Like shared ideas

Shared words

Shared experiences

Shared life


In the core of characters

The essence of literature

There is a sharing

Of words

By sharing words

We share ourselves

With readers

Friends

With the world

And with our own mind

Perceptions

We ourselves did not even know

We thought

In the heart of stories

Are the beats of storytellers

Giving their best

For you


Share some words

Spoken or written

Seldomly or every moment you find

Simply put or masterfully articulated

Safe or risky

Shouted or murmured

Similar and familiar and unheard of

Small words and sesquipedalian

How ever and when ever

Only ensure

You share words

And that your shared words

Are sincere

Let them have meaning

Let them be a part of you

Share yourself

In

Shared words





Venture Into The Mind


by Yenba


Composing a piece of writing

Is a venture into the mind

Of the author

Words thought

Expressions conceived

Creating feeling

Story

And worlds

One must go within

Search and mine

In the veiled shafts

Of one’s own

Quarry of memories

Mining

For the moments

Buried

In the sands of a day

Excavating such notions

That glimmer of wisdom

Assembling reflections

Of the mind

Life

And being

Of the writer

While reading

Such a venture

Is for the reader

To realize

A facet of the author’s mind





Line By Line


by Yenba


Hours spent

Pondering just the right wording

To build line by line

Layer by reflective layer

A towering poem

Reaching into the blank white

Of a new page

Slow-coming

Do these steeples of expression

Rise up

With great inward seeking

And careful debate

With one’s own mind

With one’s own soul

Impressing on paper

Slivers of oneself

As read

They add up

Individual lines

Of a solitary poem

Form an instance of one’s life

The poems combine

Page by page

Verse with title

Messages and story

To form the poet

And a life encountered





Living In Writing


by Hefmok


I met a man today

His character

Quite the joy

There was poetry

To his movement

A rhyme and rhythm

Of captivating phrases


Paragraphs

Of expressions

Amassing into pages

Of heart

And soul

He, like others,

I met whilst reading


For he

Is living in writing

And not here

With you and I

Yet I know him

Very well

As I would a friend


So who is to say

I did not meet him?

Meet him if you will

And those living as he

By reading such great stories

Where the characters

Come to life

A world is awaiting

Your imagination

To live again.





Inspired


by Desselna Withion


Inspiration

Arrives across all ages.

Little lasting lullabies

Wafting with windy wishes,

Some seasoned

With wild wisdom

Awaiting an appreciative adventurer

To tame their tempestuous teachings.

Find fertile fodder,

Mind-millet,

Watching wild water wend

Through timber tunnels,

Or orchard overtures over outlying

Revered rolling realms,

And all awe awakened

In imagination’s inspiring immensities.

Keep kindling,

Rich resonating rivers

Innocently inspiring inklings,

With warm welcomes

To thy treasurechest, thy

Heart.

Whether writer, Wizard, warrior, weary wanderer,

Intricacies in inspiration

Affect all areas

Of our odd odyssey of

Life.





Greetings World


by Lenda Herrinbon


Greetings to the dew

Amassed out of sight

Yet beaded over

All the facades around


Greetings to the chill air

That my breath clings to
