We bask in the light

Summer suns a safe haven

Winter a shadow

 

Within chronicles

Yesterday’s dreams are waning

Particles of dust

 

Wandering crows meet

Blackened rooftops gain a shade

Crafty black in black

 

Blue ribbons scatter

Red garlands will drag along

Skies a jigsaw frame

 

I gather moonbeams

Pale lilies in the pond glow

Infinite glitter

 

Show me an arrow

I will show you bleeding bows

Harvests are meager

 

Fingers summon years

Tireless practice in the aim

Center of the heart

From dim skies

Grey landscapes emerge

Purge of white

Faltering

The dark clouds in the skies surge

Backdrop upheaval

 

Flying kites

Shaking in the skies

Black ribbons

Unwinding

Pitter patter reminding

Of mice alike men

 

Lightning strikes

Hearts flutter a while

Blood curdles

Ravens swarm

Above plains drenched hereunder

In rolls of thunder

Image cut

On landscape of white

Sleek black ink

Trickeling

Down the white quill gyrating

Paper plane grating

 

Sink my thoughts

Tight little black knots

Chinese art

Subtle part

Finding the bud in the spots

Bloom of the morrow

 

Bring me snow

From ever rest bones

Pupil hones

Teacher’s tones

Valleys of music notes fly

The deserts’ ally

 

Wisp the hair

Starker the lashing

We will sing

Remedy

Voices between you and me

The chilly winds free

The sunflowers hope

That mornings will turn brighter

So they stay in sun

 

Sunflowers hasten

Their desire locked in black

Seeds that stay inside

 

Morning optimism

Meets midday where sun will stride

To point of sojourn

Black rain fell

Like coloured concept

Our hearts ink

Sinking pink

Moving to Chinese landscapes

Mock land of the One

 

Children tell

Of stories now swept

Memories

Moving trees

Sometimes the Mind the Heart shapes

Removing the fun

 

When hearts sell

The brides maids that wept

Fallen leaves

The mind grieves

The soul heart and mind escapes

Deleting the Sun

Tick me strikes

Clock me from afar

Withered hands

Grasping Time

Gone though we have come this far

Ending in blind war

 

You paint me

In feathers and tar

The joke spent

The dream dreamt

I have no reason to sleep

Eyes express dissent

 

Blazing rays

Ignite fading scar

Is this all

That we are

The eyelids scorching now weep

For more we were meant

 

You raised me

In black chains kingdom

The mind stilled

Overkilled

Paper joys and lies distilled

Like venom of dark

 

Hidden spark

A love shining bright

Heart’s delight

Out of sight

Ringing through my brittle night

Cradle for the right

 

Hark now hear

The oncoming rust

Red powder

Speaks louder

Voices nearer to the crust

The rumble now clear

 

Nurtured talks

My flailing embers

Bringing flame

To my name

Sacrifice the worthy’s fame

Rewinding the clocks

Heart given completely yonder story untold

Heart given completely yonder story untold

In circles concentric on blue shores that unwind

Green grass for the meadows sun fed light for the trees

The mindset eccentric sees where normal is blind

Black tears for the widows that in the bleak night freeze

 

In the cold of the dark sad women stitch a path

Where lilies grow whiter than snow in the prairies

Where the walk in the park ends in waters of Bath

A pool glowing brighter than wings of the fairies

 

From the waters that split we will see the Gods rise

Lurches from blue oceans swallowing all the lands

Save the throne where I sit entranced by the sunrise

Forgotten all my sins as water seeps into sands

 

The breath that defeats me lies within chests of cold

Heart given completely yonder story untold

Pitch black hurts

The sensitive eyes

Reeling move

On blackboards

Revealing tempo of groove

Distilling the whites

 

Flying kites

Hover above me

Thin slices

Of glories

They regenerate delights

Of childhood stories

 

Hold with me

My grasp on them weak

I dare not

Even speak

As the ropes pulsate with throb

Of the blackened mob

 

Body loss

Puppeteers rewind

In twin peaks

Riddled streaks

Measures of hue man eat he

Shredded dignity

 

Lines to cross

In between jigsaw

Puzzle me not

We forgot

The clear-cut lines of the law

Lesser of evils

 

Weigh me down

Burden of anvils

Beat upon

Lost forlorn

The making of the sword less

Soulful from soulless

 

Talk to me

From withering caves

Your mouth shrine

Frozen times

The words fed to the wordless

Soul forever mine

Clay pigeons

Rise up to my height

They fly high

Beyond sight

Artillery drawn reckons

The other beckons

 

Stand it off

The weight of the knees

Weary eye

Sees double

Compression of dimension

The folded bodies

 

We scare we

A game of two darks

Shares no light

Display might

It dissolves in the black marks

Streaking down my chin

 

Lower din

Your voice laminates

The whispers

The answers

To riddles we have become

They sail in monsoons

 

The three moons

They speak of shadows

That light smite

Pure de-light

Execution of the rows

Taking over night

 

Shifted poles

Stall my vibrations

They shiver

They quiver

Through contractions deliver

The inverted roles

September

Month of the nine trees

Grows branches

Into skies

The Angels now hear the cries

The deafening tides

 

Tree trunks float

On rivers of hope

The mind copes

In sawing

The thoughts that pervade clawing

The glimmering leaves

 

Bark and leaf

Two to a third birth

We pluck them

From the hearth

They grow in wasteland marshes

The city harsh is

 

Countryside

Landscapes of the fall

Beckon slow

To soul’s call

Finest grass for the reaper

Green is the new black

 

Oxygen

Failing my two lungs

They gather

Communion

Of pairs they will be but one

Fate of the changeling

 

Uprising

In waves of morrow

Destiny

Aquatic

They move underground frantic

The stone is their tomb
