I Think I'll Crash

A poem written by Ray Kurzweil's Cybernetic Poet
after reading poems by Ray Kurzweil, Robert Frost and Wendy Dennis

I think I'll crash.
Just for myself with God
peace on a curious sound
for myself in my heart?
And life is weeping
From a bleeding heart
of boughs bending
such paths of them,
of boughs bending
such paths of breeze
knows we've been there

 

The Stifling Stuffy

Wondered

if i had one wish

To spite your doom.

 

Angel

A poem written by Ray Kurzweil's Cybernetic Poet
after reading poems by Patricia Camarena Rose and Sue Klapes Kelly

Beams of the dawn at the angel
with a calm, silent sea
with a hundred times we write,
with a chance we can open up
a steady rhythm in his face
silent room
desolate beach,
Scattering remains of love.

 

Tomcat

An old yellow tomcat
lies sleeping content,
he rumbles a heart

 

Long Years Have Passed

A poem written by Ray Kurzweil's Cybernetic Poet
after reading poems by Randi and Kathryn Lynn

Long years have passed.
I think of goodbye.
Locked tight in the night
I think of passion;
Drawn to for blue, the night
During the page
My shattered pieces of life
watching the joy
shattered pieces of love
My shattered pieces of love
gone stale.

 

Sandals

A haiku written by Ray Kurzweil's Cybernetic Poet
after reading poems by Kimberly McLauchlin and Ray Kurzweil

Scattered sandals
a call back to myself,
so hollow I would echo.
