The restless hornets

The restless hornets

The wavering tides

Gather on uneven shores

Of sand the dune stores

 

We count the seconds

Instilled in time-riddled grains

The waves a backdrop

 

No time a full stop

Washing over and over

The frothing horses

 

Fusion confusion

I walk within Time’s bubbles

In between the worlds

 

The summers spent hay

Burning memories now doused

In half-light of cloud

 

I remember day

When the night was clear in sun

When candles rewound

 

Ticking chronicles

Fallen happenings rebound

Broken jar upright

 

The splinters ride past

Whirlwinds summon the keepers

The day’s grim reapers

 

The restless hornets

They pick on the flesh exposed

Disclosure in Twelve

  1. I loved the poem, I loved these lines:

    “The splinters ride past

    Whirlwinds summon the keepers

    The day’s grim reapers”

    You always end up getting me with one stellar stanza. And really enjoyed Dream 13 as well. Thank you for your gift today!
