Washed ashore

Attempt to restore

Witness fore

Evermore

Breathing within clouds galore

Beat of throbbing core

When Raven claws the sky – Nevermind the Name

Clouds – Nevermind the Name

Washed Ashore – Nevermind the Name

Feeding herd

Revolves around me

Claws of Hawk

On the fish

The lamb is opening dish

In supper of wolves

 

Spilling yoke

The hen rescued egg

Wisps of smoke

Ribs that poke

Talismans that we invoke

Through Truths that we spoke

 

The chatter

Subsides with the winds

Flying South

Closing mouth

Face racing against the clouds

I follow the birds

The days of the bloom

The days of the bloom

We designed them slow

Mountains in descent of glow

Pinnacles of grief

 

Steps a downward slip

Grasping understanding lip

Speech an upward myth

 

Falling into clouds

From skies heavenly blue shrouds

The fog revealing

 

Counting the mistakes

Piles of hollow riddled stakes

The game show of minds

 

Never mind she said

We’ll play moving pawns instead

On board black lilies

 

The days of the bloom

Your eyes white pearls gave them room

From cheek to the Heart

The rain falls

Coloured black and blue

On my sides

Tanning hides

My pores all welcoming spots

Blue forget me nots

 

Slowly flow

Blue lakes inside me

Silently

Hidden skies

Whispering realities

Lift them to the clouds

 

I gather

In the rain that falls

Falls falls slow

On your lands

Blue and green blended mellow

Under desert sands

Withered leaves

Pages of the fall

Skies that shut

Behind clouds

A lone voice among the crowds

The haunting whispers

 

Sun shivers

The warmth receding

Into dark

Broken lark

Searching for chirps in bosom

As flow runs crimson

 

Eyes open

To the wilderness

Looking glass

Mirrors sight

The purple rays of twilight

Suffusing the night

Where Earth sprinkles Air

Where Earth sprinkles Air

Unanswered questions

Float in tense expectations

I move in freefall

 

We seek not defeat

Our hands workers of new fates

Our minds connivance

 

Do you seek heartbeat

Or stillness of the silence

Obliterating

 

Float with me through clouds

They sizzle from the sun’s touch

When rains cast their spells

 

Throw yourself in flames

Lose yourself to find yourself

Unplanned are the games

 

Do you hear the drums

They beat tomorrow that comes

Flowing in the heart

 

Stillness is heartbeat

Motion in motionless thrives

Together apart

 

The path winds and dives

The diver divine dancer

Question is answer

 

The wind blows sparkles

The lark and nightingale pair

Where Earth sprinkles air

Wrapping up

Tying the loose ends

In firm knots

They align

Their drooping figures a sign

Of the oncoming

 

Move further

The day’s labour calls

Diligent

Hands obey

Scales for the future they weigh

Disappearing mass

 

The sun sets

On valleys that sway

In tall homes

Preachers pray

Their rosaries a staircase

Between me and I

 

The night breathes

The scent of days churned

Through fingers

Still counting

The total bill amounting

To gate keeper’s fee

 

I fly lone

Through sunrise within

Moon and sun

Face to face

See me through deepest disgrace

Until I reach skies

 

The journey

Carries me through clouds

White and pure

Like his shrouds

He is King of my castle

His light my Kingdom

The bird on the hand

Grey dawn awakens

Sleepy grasshoppers stretching

In drizzle of light

Idle thoughts in the half-light

Stir lazily in my mind

 

Silent butterflies

Flutter in the morning rays

That slowly emerge

My restless hands stretch outwards

Craving gift of the sun’s warmth

 

Silent observer

Tiny sparrow lands promptly

Perched on my fingers

Turned master of life and death

I lift my hand gingerly

 

The bird on the hand

Watching clouds fly in the sky

Blue dreams of springtime

Within bosom hopes of sun

Spiral towards lost freedom

 

Wanton prisoner

Delaying its onward flight

The sparrow hops twice

Curious mind discovering

I repeat the lost trials

 

The clouds gather dark

Their rims stripped of all linings

Stand dry tone on tone

Knaves take shelter the soonest

While the brave dance in the storms

The spiraling flights right into the sky

The wuthering heights, the children that fly

The sweltering rain, the dark clouds that weep

The simmering pain, the angels that keep

Farewell into lights the soul that flies high

 

The thunderous nights of hearts that deny

The weakening plights of stories that try

The innocence slain downward paths too steep

The spiraling flights right into the sky

The wuthering heights, the children that fly

The sweltering rain, the dark clouds that weep

 

The unearthly sights of the Gods that cry

The unwritten rights the rumbling outcry

The darkening stain of the flows that seep

The memories that wane though stirrings run deep

Dry foreboding writes the shrill and the wry

 

The spiraling flights right into the sky

Inside clouds

Upon rim of skies

The trees grow

They flow life

Within fluffy boats’ cotton

Spin of a lifetime

 

Within leaves

Clinging to the trees

Lies rustle

Talkative

Voices rumble with the change

That shakes within bark

 

Over shades

We cast light and dark

Unbridled

The heart spark

We seeded every light heart

The fruit of morrows

 

Upon ground

The apples fall stale

Like cherry

Picked random

More than crown is the kingdom

We devised in airs

 

Under breath

We talk to the mind

Voices loud

Pregnant hues

From loans we collect all dues

Time always settles

 

In Twirling

The dancers spin roots

Of new worlds

Cast in dreams

You cut we sew again seams

Repetition Time
