Desolation’s land

Desolation’s land

It rises

From deep within me

Molten fire

Lava’s ash

Through mind’s eye I see them crash

The colossal waves

 

Tsunami

Riding through the coast

In my mind

I see it

More than it was meant to be

Upon the first look

 

Bodies strewn

Particles of dust

The engines

Steel and rust

The only witness that stood

Desolation’s land

 

Reading of the poem:

Dido – Hurricanes (Official Lyric Video)

Catch me when I fall

Catch me when I fall

The ducks are flying

Their sturdy wings an emblem

Of solidity

 

Wisps of airborne white

Traces of a tree shedding

All springtime’s whispers

 

Bosoms opening

Memories of summer hay

Open green meadows

 

Waterhen gliding

The reed caressed by the winds

Heartbeats in the chest

 

Willow tree rising

The bees humming in the sky

Afternoons of May

 

Summertime blue thoughts

Sprouts springing in rising mind

Catch me when I fall

 

Reading of the poem:

Evgeni’s Waltz – Abel Korzeniowski

Blackbirds fly

In the summer sky

Forests glow

In my chest

Bosom upon which to rest

Your body awaits

 

Flailing lungs

Gasping for the air

Broken nights

To repair

Toiling with my daily care

Replenishing days

 

Dreams to sow

In my memory

Within mind

Count me in

When the hope is running thin

The bliss I rewind

 

Reading of the poem:

Yann Tiersen – Porz Goret

Only you I loved

Only you I loved

Within me

I now find myself

Within out

Without in

Travesty of innocence

I know my own dark

 

The true heart

She wells inside me

Now she says

Remember

Everyone I laid eyes on

Only you I loved

 

Morning’s lark

Wakes in me the light

The nights’ cull

Comes undone

Weaving in chest none to fight

Soul ne’er black nor white

Daffodils

Spilling in the rain

The garden

Now awash

Flowers and fruit all laden

A feast for your eyes

 

Your features

Bright and definite

Like the love

Infinite

Gushing through the sentences

Composed by the heart

 

My shadow

Under your bright sun

Towards which

I now run

Happiness is not mere word

Expression unheard

 

Reading of the poem:

Half the Perfect World – Madeleine Peyroux

Like a faithful friend

Like a faithful friend

I feel you

In the moon’s wane light

When we rhyme

Together

My soul feels like a feather

In melding with yours

 

We sway slow

In intimate dance

The halo

Around us

Trails of the shimmering glow

When our bodies touch

 

I hear you

Your words are like sun

Spread above

In the sky

Your heart meets my every cry

Like a faithful friend

Green foliage

Covering the ground

Seeking eye

Now spellbound

I breathe in the summer’s dew

Seasons brought anew

 

Clouds gather

High above in skies

They rumble

With the seed

Of water mingling with salt

Life breeds a new creed

 

Falling rain

Shimmering raindrops

On my head

They sparkle

They point to a new cycle

Of Love’s wilderness

Sam Smith – Fire on Fire
