Light in the night

Light in the night
20 December 2013


Dust it came spread its might
A seemingly normal weather
But in it armies swarmed tight
Packed like moss and heather

Unprepared my heart in fright
I gazed upon steel and leather
And as I braced and flew in sight
Wings shed more than feather

Stars that shine burning bright
Bring my heartbeats together
Make the fears fade from light
Shine path above world nether

Tall it stood through the night
A maze of dark sleek and clever
Stark and tense was the fight
Millions more sprung by lever

On it went the somber plight
A thousand sprouts whenever
Cutting through left and right
Ten monsters’ heads I’d sever

And as once I slew I now write
In pens bright swords as ever
Heaven’s skies mind’s delight
Where soul flies free forever

Mort d’un cygne

Mort d’un cygne

19 décembre 2013


Blanc de nacre si vivifiant

Fraîcheur à jamais égalée

Nu doux pâleur s’exposant

De tout temps demi-vérité


Un pas deux trois refaisant

Six en dix temps dévoilée

Vol ne vient qu’après élan

Ailes battant bleue liberté


Lourd de corps s’assumant

Poids de retenue las inhibé

Frêle de vrai le retrouvant

Cou croix blancheur exhibé


Blanc de jour le mortifiant

Halte là un geste trop zélé

Ailes déployées se fermant

Enferment en soi rêve ailé


Las le pas en demi-devers

Entre le doute malheureux

Fastes réels en mot de vers

Résistants en trompe cieux


Bat la mesure en toc pivert

D’un écrit rouge amoureux

Bois de sec lui repeint vert

Temps d’un en fin de deux


Réveil chancelant d’Univers

Un pour un et l’être heureux

Deux de trois pas en arrière

Silence clôt de cygne le vieux


J’ai écouté un soir d’hiver

Un chant de cygne glorieux

Et comme dans un fait divers

Mort il gisait à mes yeux

To judge NOT walk on

To judge NOT, walk on

December 10, 2013


To listen oh but to listen!

To tales of glory untold

A gift of love will glisten

Within a pure heart of gold


To harken oh but to harken!

To skies of soul never sold

Cloud a sky will never darken

As old memory will unfold


To judge, oh but to judge?

On vague incentive for morale

To bring forth inner grudge

Weighing is but for the scale


To live oh yes but to live

Is a path of years just spent

As you give and then forgive

Walk in peace, head unbent


Take a lost piece of eternity

A tickled spot of willful glee

Add a teardrop of humanity

Walk on compassion’s spree

Tell me you were here

Tell me you were here

1 December 2013

you were here

A last sorrowful parting kiss

Pale are your cheeks

And darkened your eyes

Before grey of death blinds them

What dark magic? You are no more


You are no more but were

At the brink of every memory

Beyond my wildest dreams

A brief fleeting moment

Captured in my loving gaze


You were but now are no more

A thought flutters in mind

Of your dark hair a field of chaos

Strewn close on my cushion to taste

Of your sighs I avidly drank


A chain rattled and locked inside

Clearing the mere memory of you

Dawn white brings to mind something

That long ago made me quiver

But were you really here?
