Taming This Tyke's Voice Since 2007

Jeques’s Art Portfolio (page 12)

~

On the steep cliff at the edge of the coast,

Lies a vine that bears a rare white flower ~

Hanging in wait like a forlorn soul, lost.

The sirens of the calm ocean whisper;

Echoing with the mountains’ dirge like ghost.

These plangent cries pervade the dawn’s zephyr:

 

Let go of your clinging grip; it is time.

Your fate beacons from the unknown distance.

Hear the ringing of your destiny’s chime,

Answer the summons of this tenuous chance!

(The art piece is a prologue to Jeques’s next painting collection with the working title: “A Traveler’s Soliloquies”  Poetry is the prologue of the poetry series: “A Traveler’s Soliloquy” by Jeques B. Jamora, 2006) 

 

The flower’s ineffable faith in life

Propels its heart to will to face its fears;

To transcend many generations’ strife,

And to fulfill the tales oft told by seers.

 

So, in the young hours of the morning,

Along the threnody crooned by the wind

The flower cut its thin fiber clinging.

To seize its future, this passage’s end ~

    Hi Jeque, hope you’re doing great. Congrats on the upcoming book!! You are such an inspiration! I want to ask, do you sell your artworks? It would be really nice to have one of yours. I don’t really know you but I feel like I know you through your writings. I like to have art pieces that I can feel a connection with.

    Best of luck and may God bless you always!

    • Thanks Mary Ann! My Art Collection are not for sale yet, the up-coming release of my book, A Traveler’s Soliloquies will showcase some of my artworks because it’s an illustrated poetry anthology and most of my art pieces are inspired by poems and are included in the book. I hope you get a copy of the book when it’s out in the market. I dream to show my works in an art exhibit to reach more audience for my works perhaps some time after the release of my book. Visit my page on face book and hit like to get update feeds about the book, coming in Fall, 2014! https://www.facebook.com/JequesBJamora

      I wish you well.

      ~ Jeques
