I see you

Wherever I go

This world fades

Meaningless

Shades of light on everglades

Blocked by murkiness

 

The hours spent

Between days and nights

Embracing

Blue outcomes

The keeper’s voice grows in hums

Of the golden bees

 

The honey

Liquefied amber

Healing drip

Within grip

Of my folded palms I sip

The nectar of life

 

Coursing light

Sweeping my body

Mutating

Inner cells

Each change stops with chime of bells

Diligent process

 

Outside me

I replicate frame

Still the same

Yet different

Each copy contains its death

Like a stray still life

 

Frozen Time

Witnesses the flights

Nights embrace

Wane daylights

The tremors of settling in

Back into within

 

We paint shades

Of imagined happenings

Minds’ tremors

Giant playgrounds

Dissonance planted in sounds

Warped Universes

Look at me

I reflect your face

Shining bright

Sketched in me

Your inks an invitation

To discover nights

 

See me through

Light’s mysteries flee

From my touch

Lurching sparks

I reach within owls’ feathers

Gathering fate’s quills

 

Whiff my scent

Pick up on the shards

Embalming

Preserving

Remnants of sunshine and ache

As I exhale dark

 

Smell me dry

Of memories might

Conserving

Observing

The scent of despair and hope

Heady wanderings

 

Voice me soft

I fall like caress

From your lips

To my wait

Where two and two make more else

A fusion of sorts

 

Scream my name

In tattoos that writhe

Through my scars

Like dewdrops

On your hair and shoulders’ curve

The moon will glisten

 

Listen now

I speak of Beauty

Love your heart

Bless your soul

There are landscapes in my mind

Where we fly like birds

 

Hear me out

I will convince you

Of lovers

Who wander

In desert plains bringing rain

Like the rolling moss

 

Sense me bare

With lust and toil’s care

Light me spleen

Luster sheen

A repetition of thoughts

Litany’s prayers

 

Sixth me flare

Where shadows lead way

Light dies thin

Hurt follows

Second skins peel into day

Bright with future’s rub

Hark the Day

Rose into the Sun

Sing o Birds

 

Snow’s flowers

Chanting in my hair

Winter light

 

Days go by

Spring now slight beckons

Jasmine hums

 

Summer sways

The long sun-kissed Days

Crooning Hays

 

The lark shouts

Autumns wing Daylight

The leaves sing

 

Winter sprouts

Days in  short bouts

Nights serenade

The Lisping set Flames

The Lisping set flames

7 November 2015

 

A part of me large 2

Weary is the soul

That tireless travels between

Fires and Waters

 

Icicles will form

On the tips of my eyelids

For brethren washed out

 

The fire cleanses

Shards that shifted in morrows

Between Blue and Red

The clock stuck in twelve

Struck more than the midnight count

When spirits would roam

I floated in air

Circles bound me to nowhere

As the river flowed

 

Rotating in trap

The core shifted towards more

The Lisping set flames

 

Seven spelled the days

Four and four faced the seven

Infinity flew

Rumi Poem, Iranian Music and Divine Dance

In Peace with the Flames

In Peace with the Flames

15 September 2015

come rebellesociety com Isabel-Bryna-e1392002267291

.

Seven days and nights

The task had me in waking

My feet bore no sole

.

I roamed wilderness

Through the thicket and the thorns

Gathering all fuel

.

Building the Bonfire

The twig like the log will serve

Awakening sparks

.

Rapture turned desire

Desire spent itself in Love

Making Light shadows

.

Human sacrifice

I threw myself into fires

Agni wept my Soul

.

As the fire soared

Hands extended in ashes

I dissolved in void

.

In Peace with the Flames

Bodiless and soul flying

I merged with the One

What is this madness?

What is this madness?

I wake before dawn

Having slept at its onset

Verily refreshed

 

If you are handler

Let my body be handles

That you may hold me

 

Thoughts of you suffuse

My very core as they light

Every handle’s fires

 

I became candle

That you may see in the dark

During your journeys

 

I became your feet

That I may lift your being

To the highest states

 

Elevated, free

You trod upon me never

We flew in heavens

 

Like your cloak of skies

I sleep with your sweet setting

Within me you rise

 

The suns wilting, skulk

At this radiance of you

As your soul unfolds

 

The moon unabashed

Held mirror to your image

And stole your silver

 

Sun and moon conspired

In wake of your glorious light

To cast you shadows

 

What is this madness

That day is night, night is day

And you stay the One?

Every time I doubt

Every time I doubt

In mind you described

Every single emotion

That would bind us thus

 

I heard your voices

Like waves of a raging sea

Scourging through my mind

 

In unseen dark waves

Your voices amplified space

Within very soul

 

Could thunder be soft?

Loud it raged on but so slight

Between light and might

 

I knew you never

You recognised me no more

Yet we both knew us

 

In days’ giddiness

In nights’ fervour we glistened

To every moon ray

 

I walk uneven pace

Your hand on my shoulder

Rectifies my gait

 

I fear not I know

You will catch me if I fall

My pace regains grace

 

The road winds in time

As the winds of change blow hard

But your sails steer me

 

Every time I doubt

I feel soft your lips’ pressure

And Heart finds solace
