Looking glass flutters

Imagination runs wild

Hidden realms move slow

 

The will breaks the want

Clusters of thoughts roam alone

Happenstance strikes heart

 

Adventures beckon

Hearts of dragons follow suit

Maze in mind ensues

 

Flowers open buds

Colours explode in the skies

Codes of nature blend

 

Summertime weds spring

Beginning meets the ending

Meanings spring to light

 

The pathways dissolve

Initiation settled

primary resolve

Whirring soft

the wheels in motion

gather moss

as they roll

They pick up speed, lose control

from the momentum

 

Target lost

Blind aim untoward

they gather

second stones

ready now to break the bones

intention resolved

 

The victim

hair flowing downward

pining teen

chained to Earth

all but chest above the floor

eyes seeing unseen

 

 

In some Muslim countries, the women guilty of adultery or even of having an affair without being married are buried in the ground and stoned with the obvious result being death in most cases. Sickeningly in some countries even the victims of rape may sometimes be sentenced in the same way as adulterers or women having an affair. This poem is written to raise awareness of the conditions under which even a young teenager who would have been free to love in other countries may incur the death penalty and be stoned to death for the “crime” of being caught with her lover in isolation. I chose to accompany this poem with a beautiful video showing elements from the cosmos to emphasize the gulf that separates some people from the vastness of the cosmos.

I carried

the desert landscapes

into mind

All alone

I raised with them paths of stone

that heart will rewind

 

Grey lit dawns

Walks in nothingness

they remind

of my share

of all that I once held dear

vanished in thin air

 

See no fear

My eyes are laden

with the hope

of morrows

when heart expunges sorrows

free of memories

Say woman

They will say demon,

holding tight

rosaries

the breath compressed as it flees

from their seething teeth

 

The blood seeps

Its way onto thighs

Preachers’ lies

escort it

animal to hide away

till the roll in hay

 

Changeling

The bosom upright

till night dawns

into age

the tautness gives in to sage

Silver crests the head

 

Lost the youth

Hymen thing of past

Who to judge

what will last?

When shoulders upright no more

unmarked then the whore

 

Hold the part

An act for two plays

rolls its ways

into world

we hoist up the sail unfurled

Emblem of our heart

 

Pick a tree

Pick a blooming side

They vote for

bigotry

eyes closed to our history

The unleveled ride

Without you

the sun lost its warmth

jaded ball

it slithered

skulking beyond horizon

looking for your face

 

Without you

the rain lost its touch

The moss cringed

under it

as it seemed fire alit

by burning desires

 

Without you

the earth rotated

upside down

reverse spin

I heeded to rising din

all clamoured for you

When you mask feelings

there is no chance of advance

into betterment

 

Take on rapid change

Within heart evolution

aspect of progress

 

In transformation

lies deep the ability

to face moving odds

Come with me

I’ll show you a place

where wisdom

unfettered

is all mind ever uttered

speaking through the heart

 

Walk with me

One nation One pace

let’s replace

all sorrow

with beauty brought by morrow

delving in the soul

 

Fly with me

into worlds of love

overturned

misgivings

driven by the mighty dove

into oblivion

Vivid glance

into depths of soul

Woven threads

knitted hearts

Whole to understand from parts

The wisdom in stance

 

The mind shreds

the knowledge amassed

forbearing

the dire times

when all gathered were but rhymes’

wayward wandering

 

The children

lost in midst of shores

between lands’

sand rivers

Bodies repressing shivers

that the day disbands

Smothered chest

night’s dark reflections

to ponder

I gathered

the dreamtime’s buried landscapes

into wake of day

 

The wonder

Decomposing nights

into day

Through the light

we often recover sight

when the dark is cleared

 

Bosom reared

handiwork of soul

From the start

to the end

it always knows what to mend

when the heart is clear

The garden stretched forth

Leaves scattering in its midst

Grass strewed evergreen

Windmills of my mind stirred slow

Recognition of the light

 

Paper planes flew low

Their noses scraping the dust

The rubble moved slight

The mind composed bleak answers

Call of the heart rising through

 

Clouds pearled lily white

Amidst announcement of storm

A silverlining

The heart contrasted with mind

Choices like ribbons flew south
