Like a twin answering me

Like a twin answering me

Birds flocked together

Wings outstretched soaring so high

Dark dots in blue skies

Cyan thoughts in indigo

Roared to the front of my mind

 

Its boughs vibrant red

The bougainvillea awoke

Flowers bursting through

As spring blossomed so did I

In rapture of oncoming

 

Eyelids closed looked through

The curtains of the unknown

To worlds beneath wraps

Hidden universes leapt

Into mind’s inner callings

 

Birds of paradise

Within struts of many choose

Calling to their mate

You hear my call and call back

Like a twin answering me

 

Questions, anger, pour

Like salt into bleeding wounds

Scorching births twin selves

Amidst flames of remembrance

Souls’ eyes meet unwavering

 

Sun soothing cast rays

Of mellow and healing warmth

Birds sang merrily

Time came for celebration

As dark and light united

Green nails raked the ground

As the gardener combed on

The moss-ridden land

Covered in nebulous clouds

My mind sought to soar above

 

Stone split in splinters

As hammer drove on heavy

Heaving with the might

Chest weighed down by force of mind

Imploded into ashes

 

Woodpecker carved on

Its beak relentless into

Soft bark that bled red

Delicate core oozed crimson

While iron cage survived time

 

Dark whispered to light

As crying voices withered

Out living a lie

Stale truth in form broke feigned bond

As mind outlived memories

And the river flowed

And the river flowed

Tree recovered leaves

Wringing hands it tossed them out

Of barren brown trunks

A sterile dull mind would cope

Changing not the weather’s course

 

Lily pierced the ground

Shy head crowned in white shimmered

Breathless she panted

Lungs fighting for air I sang

In unison with her plight

 

Bougainvillea stood

Wearing many a colour

On one single bough

Not one but walking many

A path hummed for me a path

 

Plumbago weightless

Whispered to rose that sighed low

Covered in purple

Crimson hues engulfed my frame

As rose touched my indigo

 

Earths banks sat weeping

While the mountains fed the source

And the river flowed

Thoughtless I followed the light

No shadow caressed my toes

  sleeping beauty14

Wild birds called on shrill

Their voices seeking out sun

That shone stonily

Mind etched in marble silence

Hears not the call of the wild

 

The daffodils sang

To power of life that rang

Through their green slender bodies

Frame of green enveloped me

As life coursed through my blue veins

 

Between dark and light

I balanced every ion

The border stayed tight

Years as Pandora passed through

While I slept in oblivion

 

Half cast in moonlight

The other side of me woke

To a new dawn’s sun

New beginnings sparkled bright

With stars of recognition

I see fire

I see fire

fire1

 

Fire’s embers burnt

Strong and powerful forces

Primal signs of life

Throbbing mind set colours true

As all shades to red seemed wane

 

Hissing sound of spark

That once before fought so brave

Yet drowned in water

The tank brimmed with pictures there

Yesterday kept resurging

 

Ice cool breath faltered

In between mist and cold rain

As fire now blazed

Memories alit in flames

Found no respite in water

 

 

Icy fire raged

On the brink of tomorrow

As coal chips broke off

Mind to the heart is a trail

I see fire in its Wake

 

Earth in me

Earth in me

The grasshopper sang

To the revival of Earth

Its voice clean and fresh

Fresh beginnings stirred in mind

As the path lay ahead raw

.

A snake crawled silent

Slithering frame shedding all

As it renewed skin

Skin deep regeneration

Would lull not wandering soul

.

The river flowed still

Glistening streaks of light gems

That shone unrivalled

No parallel for the sane

Earth’s core shone in pure white light

.

The wind danced in sails

That filled to the tune of woods

Like elves on a plain

Out in plain sight I bore mind

Which shook with tremor of now

.

Neutron bombarded

Clouds gave forth rain and tempest

Drenching parched dry soil

Relief overcame dry eye

As tears joined with raindrops

.

Shrubs grow sparkling green

Voiceless witnesses of Earth

They renew in me

A new dawn thus finds me now

Watching tide of change ebb flow

.

Springtime blooms steadfast

Carving red roses in rocks

As white lilies played

Teasing starry-eyed watchers

Strewed the sky with crimson signs

.

Beating lively drums

Set pace to throb of living

While waterfalls gushed

Stirring emotions rushed forth

As Earth in me clad green robes

.

A deathly pallor

A deathly pallor

 Pulse18

 

Night’s sky breathed aloud

Jasmine like a streak of light

Called to the wild side

An intake of wilderness

Throbbed in my mind’s eye again

 

The owl hooted once

Its cry silenced by the night

That prepared for doom

The knell rang on as I knelt

Neither submissive nor wild

 

The rose felt its thorns

Through darkness that hid its gait

In reminiscence

Pictures against my mindscape

Shuddered with stark remembrance

 

The lanterns hissed out

As storms danced into their lights

Darkness then prevailed

Cloak of night like a fog reigned

A while as I let it creep

 

The winds blew their hearts

In clouds that scattered silver

Like coins strewn in sky

Pennies would have outweighed thoughts

As they roamed without purpose

 

Remnants of us glowed

Ghostly ink against pink flesh

A deathly pallor

Gaunt cheek though pale stood firmly

Its twin it offered no more
