Life’s mysteries form

A pleat within destiny

Traces of camphor

 

Neatly tucked away

Remembrance a robe of light

My nostrils inflamed

 

Repeated chipping

Eye discovers in the seams

The unknown facets

Familiar – Agnes Obel

Shedding leaves

Shedding leaves

25-26 August 2018

 

She walked through the swarming streets heading towards the beachfront. She smiled at the woman who crossed her path and touched her outstretched hands that were offering her a garland of jasmine woven with small roses. She took the garland and put it around her neck as her hair was too short to weave it in there. She paid the woman, smiled and moved on as the woman waved at her smilingly.

 

The sun was high in the sky but the sea remained grey as usual. She had wondered when she had first arrived at the seaside why the sea was always grey but had got used to it. It seemed like it had to blend with the darker colour of the rocks on the seaside. She thought back to the beautiful sparkling beaches in North Africa and wondered whether it was the pollution here that made the sea turn grey close to the coast.

 

She sat on a rock overlooking the beach and stared at the sea. The waves were making a gentle lulling sound interrupted from time to time by the shrieks of children jumping into the water. It was a joyous sight but somehow she could not help her heart feeling heavy. She could not get over the feeling that something had completely stirred out of control in her destiny, changing her future, and that it was not by chance. Barely a year and a half had gone by but it seemed like it was light years away.

 

Back home to keep the memories of those moments of the future she had glimpsed she had resorted to collecting falling leaves in which she mentally inscribed glimpses of that future. Over time, the future she had seen seemed to be slowly fading into oblivion and she would then take out the leaves to remember. Each leaf reminded her vividly of a place in time where she had been in thought and where she had lived an incredible adventure filled with love and happiness.

 

Her right hand felt for the small basket that was tucked inside her handbag. It was still there and she sighed a sigh of relief. She wondered how it could be so small and hold so much at the same time. She got up from the rock and resumed her walk but towards the canal this time. It was one of the rare places in the city where stagnant water was not necessarily a synonym of stench and rot. At some points it even looked beautiful with profuse vegetation and a small bridge-like construction.

 

The water was a sombre green. She walked to the bridge, looked over the edge of it and slowly emptied the small basket. The leaves fell into the water and swirled away with the current caused by the wind. She watched until they were out of sight and felt as though her heart were leaving with those swirling leaves. Yet she knew that she could not hold on to the leaves as a totem anymore. They had to disappear for what they represented to reappear.

 

Those moments of the lost future she had lived had to be reintegrated within her. They belonged to her and had to be a part of her again, not relegated to the role of externalised memories. Her heart warmed slowly with the returning memories that filled her being with love. It was as if the release of the leaves had opened a dam within her. The images cascaded in her mind like a whirlpool of sunny water as they filled her neurons. Tears of joy streamed down her face and wiping them she lifted her head and smiled up at the skies. It did not matter anymore that it had been steered away for it existed out there. It was forever hers.

Brotherhood

Once raised to do good

Cloaked in hood

Wed the wood

Branded fellows cattle food

Goal misunderstood

 

The resolve

Of star bred absolve

Problems solve

Winds revolve

Magnitudes where they devolve

Humans to evolve

 

Destiny

Oracles that see

History

Law of Three

Wade in waters to the knee

End of my Journey

Bound by oath

Made in code and blood

Knights will join

Tooth and loin

Though it is the mighty Queen

Who leads King’s battle

 

Salt for Toth

Sugar for the bees

I pray strong

Though on knees

My sight restored to Unseen

A snake with rattle

 

Heart in peace

Discovering wills

I float through

Noah’s ark

It rekindles in me spark

Of destiny’s spear

 

We lead crowd

Bonded in fever

They shout loud

Voices hoarse

Blind eyes decoding the Morse

As I type haggard

 

We strip folds

From unseeing eyes

Waking up

Seeing lies

They discover land of Oz

Broken the wizard

 

The King walks

His pace a slow move

While the Queen

Unhindered

Flies high through the battle cries

Sacrifice her groove

 

Openings

Entrenched in our souls

They beckon

To the grapes

High above the wilting shapes

Of trees in the wind

 

Holocaust

Burning apple trees

Violins

Aching wood

Empty stomachs yearning food

Beating above dins

 

Dance to beat

Live die and repeat

Past blunders

Wane thunders

Warning chimes as thief plunders

Plucking from bosoms

 

Hearts turn cold

This was not the fate

We wrote once

With bright pens

The worthy cooped up in dens

Waiting for lions

 

Blue craters

They await the sane

Lost haters

Smothered dust

Dissolves into fading rust

Of forgotten steel

 

She will come

From bowels of Earth

She ignites

My hands gifts

Blue heart throbbing as she lifts

My frame into skies

 

I am two

Between me and you

I hover

Within Grace

She turns towards me her face

Sunken eyes teardrops

We hold flames

With our naked hands

Worded hope

Destiny

They warm our frames or scorch them

One matter twin views

 

A beacon

To follow the strands

Of Phoenix

Purity

We gather feathers fallen

As the bird renews

 

Reckoning

From future displayed

Understand

Glorious past

Misconception a new trend

Gathered momentum

Hold my hand

Feel the energy

My lifeline

Crosses heart

Let me infuse you sweetness

Before I depart

I fear not

We shall travel safe

Hearts in peace

Minds at ease

Swift and soft like summer breeze

Entering morrows

 

Golden sands

Speak of timeless age

Gone the rage

Only love

Look and see the weeping dove

She cries for freedom

 

Addendum

Wistful points declared

Afterthought

In hindsight

As the mind and soul connect

Playing with the light

Le cou est fragile les destins funestes / The neck is fragile the destinies fatal

Toi invisible loi étoile de mon ciel

De ma soif bulle claire ineffable ruisseau

De mon souffle rauque l’air prisonnier de l’eau

Brève noyade en soi drame circonstanciel

 

Egérie ma foi inconditionnelle

Ni l’écrit pour plaire ni clé de trousseau

Sort patibulaire de Méduse radeau

Coule de mon cœur roi stérile ritournelle

 

Oh ma sœur Anne dis vois-tu maître barbu

Le cou est fragile les destins funestes

Le roux se teinte gris le dos las fourbu

 

Cygne blanc fier gracile le vautour moleste

Prières vendredi sur les prés herbus

Vois la proie facile du cœur on sert restes

You invisible law star of my skies

Of my thirst clear bubble ineffable stream

Of my hoarse breathing the air trapped in water

Brief drowning in the self, circumstantial drama

 

Egeria my faith unconditional

Neither writing to please nor key on the keychain

Sinister Fate Medusa’s Raft

Sinks my heart’s king in sterile jingle

 

Oh my Sister Anne say do you see master bearded

The neck is fragile the destinies fatal

The redhead colours himself grey the back is broken tired

 

Graceful proud white swan the vulture molests

Friday prayers on grassy meadows

See the easy prey of heart they serve leftovers
