To cradle of light

Mind’s tendrils
nailing the target
course reset
no regret
The hand on my heart measure
of pulsing leisure
  
Within eye
the whispering trees
build gardens 
of morrows
bridges of new intentions
my bosom crosses
  
The journey
a flight within reeds
Ticking clock 
awaits none
Elementary treasures
growing from the shrubs
  
Untangling
sister’s weaving spun
through the heat
that melts all
A riddle for mind to fall
A tale to recall
  
Adventure
the soul has begun
within joints
it anoints
hands drawing cardinal points
spaces the eye seeks
  
The light flows
within my body
It quivers
in rivers
messages it delivers
to cradle of light

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

Music flooded head
13 November 2020
  
In the beginning
the rhythm set to basic
primordial human
  
Melodies renewed
Frontal lobe early signal
of evolution
  
Healing sounds soothed soul
Leading out of deep caverns
where darkness fought light
  
It mends in two keys
reconciling opposites
the rift now repaired
  
Prime numbers plotted
a pathway to fixing scores
for blindness to treat
  
First light restored sight
Reviving sounds tickled ear
Music flooded head

Pray fall into heart

Pray fall into heart
5 November 2020
   
 Bitter happenings
 of bleak landscapes of the mind
 frozen in the core
  
 Crisp thoughts of morrows
 numbing the flow of heartbeats
 biting raw of flesh
  
 Icy winds swept fast
 through the ebb and flow of time
 They spelt love’s decline
  
 Cool winter mornings
 Chill of a frosty sunshine
 dawned upon our souls
  
 A dip into hope
 Drops of wonder cut through doubt
 A dive into faith
  
 Your hands are so cold
 Warm them upon my bosom
 Pray fall into heart

Wet grass tickled feet

Wet grass tickled feet

30 October 2020

 
  
 Children of morrows;
 their cries ringing everywhere
 soaking Earth purple
  
 Foggy landscapes met
 teary eye saturated
 with pains of fledglings
  
 Stormy weather formed
 flower of life in my chest 
 that drenched my heart red
  
 Pouring rain renewed
 hope in another Earth’s rise
 The bud of my thoughts
  
 Petals bloomed in mind
 blossoms of tomorrow’s world
 that dewy drops spelt
  
 Misty skies breathed soft
 whispers of promises kept
 Wet grass tickled feet

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

Humans united

Humans united

2 October 2020

Clad in iron frame

weary from the highs and lows

the traveler weeps

`

The separation

sum of all our misgivings

undulating pains

`

Look into my eyes

see the rivers of my soul

piercing into black

`

Unchained, flying free

a bluebird sings in my mind

melodies that haunt

`

From dead plains they rise

the songs of togetherness

echo of the Love

`

We come together

Breath of you through Heart of me

Humans united

`

The waters flowed calm

The waters flowed calm

The elements raged

Pelting rain tore at my cheeks

The storm’s pace quickened

 

A raven called hoarse

a mild reminder of death

beak lost in twister

 

Rising in the skies

Gusts of wind shook free my frame

I recounted time

 

A single line drawn

across my heaving chest’s throb

The tempest, silenced

 

Soothing thoughts surfaced

As hurricane receded

into oblivion

 

The waters flowed calm

Monsoon surge a memory

Its downpour wasted

A thousand answers

A thousand answers

25 September 2020

 

The question mattered

unanswered it dug away

into my mind’s eye

 

Port to port I roamed

a deeply drunken sailor

veiled knowledge my quest

 

The ship sailed onwards

a ghostly trace of itself

against moonlit skies

 

Cells resonated

reverberating thunder

Lightning struck in soul

 

New realms unfolding

in the space within my heart

rose up to the helm

 

A thousand answers

spilled into my yearning mind

tracing shining lines

 

Reading of the poem:

Hammock – Circular As Our Way (Silencia)

All rage now vanquished

All rage now vanquished

23 September 2020

Seething energy

the fury of elements

breaks into a storm

 

Heavy lightning strikes

Nature no longer passive

shares its violence

 

All furor unleashed

in sync with nature’s madness

heavens turn ink black

 

Churned into frenzy

seascapes heave with creeping waves

overcoming land

 

Waters once stagnant

restore passion of their roots

Marshes spill over

 

Ferocity speaks

intensity at its peak

in quaking mountains

 

The heart follows storms

A pyre for minds alights

magmatic, alive

 

Wistful rain falls fast

upon the brooding landscapes

reluctant soothing

 

Gradual easing

Slow trickle of honey flows

into my bosom

 

The quiet restored

Ire a ghost of the past

All rage now vanquished
