Burning within breath

The city sprawls

Its engines now spent

Loose hurdles

Blood curdles

Thoughts of morrows’ place to rent

The kites within chest

 

The flurry

Birds within the skies

Welcoming

Springtime gait

Treetops where the flowers wait

The fall in summer

 

Take a chance

Open the chimneys

The dust piled

Cleansed with broom

Learn to spell the miracles

Burning within breath

Two to tie

Within is without

Seven flags

Fly about

Rings of fire scorch the trees

Penitent on knees

 

Dragon’s lair

His smell in the air

Wings that lift

Nightly drift

Black holes guide to inner stare

His world here not there

 

Concealed might

Whispers in the night

He gifts me

Second sight

The Northern Star guides me right

My frame in his light

 

Magic tricks

Bosoms split in six

Spells that fix

Feathers mix

Bring together what was torn

One eyed king is born

 

Awoken

I am unbroken

He grants me

Love token

Three times soft words are spoken

His heart in my care

 

Spring has come

Lost weight of winter

Suns rays play

With my eye

From him I will never shy

Eagle of my sky

Rotating

Spirals in the air

Yellow beams

Mellow streams

Kaleidoscope of summer

Springtime in the breeze

 

Sunshine’s bloom

Daffodils rising

Grass growing

Soft and sweet

Lips moving as the eyes meet

Remembrance flicker

 

Eagle beak

Touch soft as feather

Sliding panes

Earthen stains

Twinkling in the sky they sway

The reeds in the sun

Larks that sing

The daily sun bring

Upon wing

Reckoning

The passage of rite of spring

Shedding skins that cling

Winter shrill

The whispering voices marked the pace of slow feet

We crawled into corner that spun shunning all light

We grappled with choices pulsing vein to meet fleet

Like starry eyed mourner death to us more than white

 

In dead leaves the choice is what we win in defeat

The springs did adorn her from green woodlands in sprite

The autumn rejoices courting floors it will meet

Their carpets had borne her she would shower them bright

 

A look through my window to waning springtime frill

The flowers that simmer with a slain chirping tune

The echo rang mellow like on mocking bird hill

 

Snowflakes in land glimmer under silvery moon

His head on my pillow now calling winter shrill

The lights then grew dimmer shadows fade all too soon

Daffodils wither

Alongside the riverbeds

Like bleak blackened suns

 

The waters swirl fierce

They bear weight of thousand griefs

As the shadows set

 

Darkness speaks thunders

The bolts firmly set in place

Rekindle the flame

 

The candle burns bright

Like token of forever

Springs into motion

 

Dying flame belies

Engraved thoughts of revival

Etched within my skin

 

The blindness sets in

Unmoved by extra senses

The hopeless trod on

 

Meet me in July

I will swing to lonely tunes

On the other side

I listen

To chatter of birds

They carry

Your heartbeat

The sound of oncoming spring

Gushing in fountains

 

Hark renew

Millenary faith

In footsteps

Of mother

Sunken grounds bear the mildew

Of past green composts

 

Mark my words

We will dance to bond

Written high

In the sky

Spelling a wit’s exercise

Miss stakes of the wise

 

Feel the touch

It speaks of precious

Breath luscious

Blowing soft

Upon nape crawling aloft

Serpentine pathways

 

Seek the chain

Unlock written tense

Future spent

Past pretense

Words a string of hope and pain

Makers of the rain

 

Rent a room

With a view to buy

Estates grasp

Fingers clasp

Joint prayers to funerals

Of the heaving boom

 

Speak promise

Of shadowed sunshine

Cool mist weighs

Balanced rhythms

Your step foretelling my hip

Between cup and lip

As the Ravens swarm

Slow they show

The shimmering peaks

The love’s hope

Periscope

Looking out of the waters

Rimmed with icy blue

 

The cleansing

Gift of springtime’s sprouts

Dancing feet

Humming beat

Prancing around the lilies

Chasing across Time

 

It blinks fast

The glowing heartbeat

Building up

Winding stairs

Leading down into the wells

Where the blood simmers

Flatline’s trace

When all is balance

Without face

She calls loud

Her shadows like the moon’s hue

Silver and grey streaks

 

We renew

From depths of our selves

Holy chants

Bees’ water

Our birth into mystic skies

Which speak of fear’s loss

 

Of decaying skin

Cleaned so neat what feat!

This absence

In presence

I scrubbed harder than steel nails

This soul how she wails

The moon flies

Over dark rivers

Where men cry

As they die

Their souls steeped in nothingness

The void it calls so

 

In the skies

High above the trees

She glimmered

Slight traces

Aurora borealis

Shimmering portal

 

Pilgrimage

To darker silence

Where the waves

Ride the shades

Of snow falling onto stones

Altars of the old

We rehearse

Death and its shadows

Like bleak slaves

Submissive

Mortality donned like cloak

We once immortal

 

They bind us

With paper names’ codes

Like grey moths

To stark light

We go down without a fight

Our minds bound to false

 

Like dewdrops

The gleaming droplets

Of bloods call

Misery

A notion to overcome

As the Ravens swarm

Life condemns

The flailing fledglings

Cast on limb

Broken souls

Searching for key in other

Inside dwell answers

 

Succession

Of partners flurry

One night stands

Hurried love

Immersion in dark dwellings

Caves for the half-baked

 

Truths simmer

Under the fleeced skin

Wincing taut

Stand at ease

There is light in the shadows

Not all courts martial

 

Immersion

A haunting thought creeps

Diving deep

Into hides

My skin seeks more than the touch

Invading senses

Senseless games

Playing one’s own mind

Losing fast

Hand in sling

All the doubts that they will bring

These pawns that we move

 

Handicapped

One hand claps never

Alone pale

Barely snap

Fingers attempting some joy

Whistle stuck in throat

 

When to learn

Perhaps when skin peels

Efforts lost

Clapping hard

Against chest flanks jagged ribs

Some hands claps sever

 

I aim soft

At moving targets

Illusion

Breach of trust

The steely will now does rust

Red the waste matter

Imagine

Colours of a beak

Glory’s peak

Word to speak

Iridescent mouth hardened

By years of trials

 

The wise ones

They arm with patience

The waiting

Discovery

Going through the kernel’s path

The way to the self

 

You can clean

Arches of doorways

Rid cobwebs

Of spiders

The room’s content lost treasures

Other lifetimes’ hunt

 

Spring cleaning

Relentless forte

I wear it

Bright motto

Speleologist grotto

My search sane and blunt
