The other side of me

The other side of me

15-18 March 2015

  sleeping beauty14

Wild birds called on shrill

Their voices seeking out sun

That shone stonily

Mind etched in marble silence

Hears not the call of the wild

 

The daffodils sang

To power of life that rang

Through their green slender bodies

Frame of green enveloped me

As life coursed through my blue veins

 

Between dark and light

I balanced every ion

The border stayed tight

Years as Pandora passed through

While I slept in oblivion

 

Half cast in moonlight

The other side of me woke

To a new dawn’s sun

New beginnings sparkled bright

With stars of recognition

I see fire

I see fire

17-18 March 2015

 

fire1

 

Fire’s embers burnt

Strong and powerful forces

Primal signs of life

Throbbing mind set colours true

As all shades to red seemed wane

 

Hissing sound of spark

That once before fought so brave

Yet drowned in water

The tank brimmed with pictures there

Yesterday kept resurging

 

Ice cool breath faltered

In between mist and cold rain

As fire now blazed

Memories alit in flames

Found no respite in water

 

 

Icy fire raged

On the brink of tomorrow

As coal chips broke off

Mind to the heart is a trail

I see fire in its Wake

 

Earth in me

Earth in me

The grasshopper sang

To the revival of Earth

Its voice clean and fresh

Fresh beginnings stirred in mind

As the path lay ahead raw

.

A snake crawled silent

Slithering frame shedding all

As it renewed skin

Skin deep regeneration

Would lull not wandering soul

.

The river flowed still

Glistening streaks of light gems

That shone unrivalled

No parallel for the sane

Earth’s core shone in pure white light

.

The wind danced in sails

That filled to the tune of woods

Like elves on a plain

Out in plain sight I bore mind

Which shook with tremor of now

.

Neutron bombarded

Clouds gave forth rain and tempest

Drenching parched dry soil

Relief overcame dry eye

As tears joined with raindrops

.

Shrubs grow sparkling green

Voiceless witnesses of Earth

They renew in me

A new dawn thus finds me now

Watching tide of change ebb flow

.

Springtime blooms steadfast

Carving red roses in rocks

As white lilies played

Teasing starry-eyed watchers

Strewed the sky with crimson signs

.

Beating lively drums

Set pace to throb of living

While waterfalls gushed

Stirring emotions rushed forth

As Earth in me clad green robes

.
