Germs in each corner

Germs in each corner

New virus attacked
Roll of thunder announced it;
connected minds roared

The disease flared through
Decay spread through synapses;
infection rumbled

Head counted microbes
The future resounded through
the boom of the bugs

Germs in each corner
Spelt name of a new species
that grumbled through space

The winds carried me
delicate wings fluttering
in ascent of skies

Dark clouds gathered tight
In graceful touch of the night
while the moons surged sleek

The days’ rise upturned
sunlit landscapes glittered white
The tides washed the beach

Sparkling sugar straits
reflections of sandy slopes
swell under the sun

Bright eyes stretch inwards
gathering the suns rays’ kiss
irises spotless

The sea progresses
my body in solemn vow
meets dizzy waves’ pull

A goodbye to royalty

A goodbye to royalty

Dwindling spot of light
sinking in the skies
Ebb of the sun’s rays
  
Wane moon rises high
Dribble of silver oozing
a stream runs through night
  
Reflux of the breeze
Bubbles of air in river
Flow of the current
  
Three weave the stories
Their fingers points of flux gush
with oncoming rush
  
The stars now retreat
The winds drop on rising tides
The throngs flood the gates
  
Drift in the bees’ hive
A goodbye to royalty
stages in decay

Serenity sweeps

Serenity sweeps

3 October 2020

A lark calls morning

Waking my mind from slumber

sunshine stirs all frames

`

My eyes now gather

your face falling into place

behind closed eyelids

`

Serenity sweeps

into my beating heart’s cage

its throbs flying free

`

Reading of the poem:

Adrift on the Sea of Tranquility – Riley Lee

Stillness of my breath

Stillness of my breath

Summer turned lazy

It watched the path to waters

sizzle under rain

 

My footsteps left stains

of earthen recollections

green grass and brown dirt

 

The winding path led

To where waters encountered

stillness of my breath

 

Reading of the poem:

Beethoven – Sonate au Clair de Lune + 300 Peintures

Smother not

The wilful intent

It breathes low

Remedies

For the dark venture to cease

The mind none to tease

 

Pursue Art

Within mighty heart

The power

To harness

Kingdoms beyond the darkness

Where brave stand duress

 

Look beyond

Written in the skies

The hearts paired

The souls spared

The breach a keen reminder

When the mind despaired

They run through rivers

Did you feel

My waking anthem?

It speaks not

It fears not

It crawls alive down mountains

Measured in sentence

 

The wet tides

They crave beaten shores

Where I dance

Unison

Downtrodden path of danger

The will a stranger

 

I heed not

The hushed countenance

The words packed

In bosom

Now descending in quivers

They run through rivers

Hush now don’t explain – Billie Holiday

Shower me in rain

Shower me in rain

Have it all

Bursting seams whispered

Pack in bulge

We indulge

Preserving by ingestion

All the holiness

 

I confess

In moments of sighs

The respite

In the might

Of the ghastly paths trodden

Forgiveness lengthy

 

My scream hurls

Off dilated chests

In plenty

Agony

Breathing in toxins to speak

What bosoms bore not

 

I claim eye

Redemption in sky

Words ripped off

The shorn back

Whip up a back to redeem

What I may then seem

 

Perfection

Art of plentiful

Nuances

Beautiful

Look within the chest that heaves

Nothing for the mass

 

Land of Perth

Rekindles the birth

Of the Love

Infinite

Take mind off woodlands ablaze

Shower me in rain

Prosopa – Spanatis Spanoudakis

Peach in him

Peach in him

Wasted time
A circus that wound
Colours blind
To the Grey
A path leads under waters
Thundering in skies

Hark to tell
What ears comprehend
Through the well
Of light streams
Stories uninterrupted
In the mind that flies

The lips spell
Tonalities fused
Peach in him
Orange hue
Cobblers mend uneven shoe
One a pair of none

Seeping water moves

Cracks in the building’s basement

The shivering frame

 

Walls disintegrate

Particles float around me

A way through rubble

 

Edge of the cliffside

Six daffodils greet my sight

Burning memories

Open water – Javier Navarrete
