The winding footsteps

The winding footsteps

Wherever

I walk to the hiss

Of nighttime

And ravens

I find bloodied safe havens

The riddles galore

 

December

It creeps into Heart

Ice and rock

Like playgrounds

Fitted with the snowbound ears

Readied coals’ embers

 

I colour

The dreams of the lost

Cast souls’ mast

Wild banners

My fingers know not the cost

Of lilies and smears

 

The white flag

Hovering like breath

Under tears

Play do me

Child clay a pool of dark fears

My music a sin

 

Wave the wand

Glory disappears

Magic wanes

Sugar melts

Truth around us how it pelts

Hail to story’s spin

 

Stir the pot

We cook what we dream

Stew and Heart

Spices art

Of broth and the melting meet

Pieces of our selves

 

Eleven

Moons in the wings’ folds

Seven skies

Greet my sighs

We sever what we know not

The winding footsteps

I fly within a dream, a restless nest

Wings fluttering keen, Heart spent in earnest

A wicker and flame, rancid pile of coal

Roaring fire to tame, will consume me whole

Smoothing the feathers that smother my breast

 

Carried from yonder of places the best

Enchanted wonder of poets the fest

Now light me ablaze catch fire to soul

I fly within a dream, a restless nest

Wings fluttering keen, Heart spent in earnest

A wicker and flame, rancid pile of coal

 

Windless the night’s peak, no branch here to rest

Of chatter the weak would keep me abreast

The silence within, a gift to console

The blood that ran thin, a tear that heart stole

A look at these doubts, a moment of test

 

I fly within a dream, a restless nest

Wings fluttering keen, Heart spent in earnest

A wicker and flame, rancid pile of coal

Roaring fire to tame, will consume me whole

Smoothing the feathers that smother my breast

Autumn leaves will fall

As the sun will soon grow cold

And the bark will freeze

 

Did you know I’m blue?

Hues bluer than deepest sea

Ice in heart stretches

 

You fail to see it

You would not know what it takes

To break through the ice

 

Faith in you falters

But if you know then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Winter white will call

As the skies will gather snow

And the bears will sleep

 

Did you feel my hugs?

Tighter than the starkest grip

Sleep its warmth fetches

 

You fail to glean it

You would not feel them these quakes

Tremors I convey

 

Warmth in me halters

But if you feel then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Springtime will blossom

As the robins will return

And flowers will bloom

 

Did you need my kiss?

Lighter than the touch of clouds

Heavier than rain

 

You fail to reach it

You would not need these pink lips

Pressure of my soul

 

Velvet silk retracts

But if you need then pray stay

Dance me to the End

Summer will then scorch

As the sun will rise ablaze

And the hay will burn

 

Did you read my heart?

Transparent like a river

Murky like a pond

 

You fail to breach it

You would not read these blue tips

That pump me brick red

 

Life from Love subtracts

But if you read then pray stay

Dance me to the End

 Dance albertis-window com 3alphonse-mucha-the-four-seasons summer

.

The seasons were gone

Even time came to standstill

We dwelt face to face

 

Did you heed my soul?

Overflowing blue-red lake

It merged ice with coal

 

You fail to grasp it

You merely scratch the surface

That shines like mirrors

 

Soul a soul could mute

But if you heed then pray stay

Dance me to the End

The battles in me

The battles in me

Exclusivity

Privilege of the blinded

Weighing wings as coal

.

Dark possession stills

Infinite movements of rays

That called to all souls

.

The battles in me

Rage with the memories spent

Collecting pieces

.

Relics of lives bent

Hanging like corpses spread out

Between Sky and Earth

.

Words falling from ink

Printing in mind a landscape

Toying black and pink

.

Delving into mind

Fluttering butterfly turns

Moth in the making

.

Heart’s light responds soft

Echoes of feeling paint me

Colours of life’s hues

.
