The Poetry Corner featuring Ed Ireland

Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of the Poetry Corner! Please join me in welcoming Ed Ireland and a poem from his book, Forgotten Treasure. 🙂

Passion’s Wings by Ed Ireland

On golden wings of promise,
like a ship that crosses the sea,
my heart longs to be with you.
Unburdened, full, and free.

Twas in the dawn of my time
brought from ash and fire.
Your touch guided my path
and found my secret desire.

Through sword and talon of steel,
illuminated in heroic flame.
Together we conquered all we saw.
The Gods called out your name.

Glory was ours but a faithless act,
allowed the enemy to take my heart.
Imprisoned it in a snowy globe,
To keep our love apart.

But a stranger came, a thief at night,
and stole the globe away.
Bringing it to a distant shore,
in the warmth of a brand new day.

And so it was the sun touched me,
With all its warm, healing rays.
And soon my fires lit once more,
ending my prisoned days.

So now I search the wide, wide Earth,
Trying to find where you can be
On golden wings of passions flight

About the Poem: Your Phoenix flies to your memory. The story of the Phoenix. The mythical firebird becomes the symbol of the passion between two lovers. When they separate the fire dwindles and flickers out. The Phoenix was lucky when his prison was returned to the sun but now spends his days looking for something gone forever.

Awesome poem! Thanks for sharing, Ed! 🙂

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
