Whisper secret tones

Cast again veil of darkness

End wayward duress

 

Relinquish the day

Shine moon over the sun’s glare

Lessen light to bear

 

Chant the night to me

In soft-spoken melodies

Carried by the breeze

 

Reading of the poem: 

The message – Still Corners

Grey dawns pearl

Pushing back the night

It subsides

In circles

The Sun picking up the strides

Invades horizons

 

New day born

From womb that was torn

Miracles

Pulsating

Within mind’s webs creating

Remnants of her Art

 

The Mother

She anointed me

Moon Petals

Whispering

The moment when prayers ring

To temples in heart

Reach out to the fields

The day lost

Meanings of the night

The darkness

Dissolved slight

Packets of velvet insight

Downloading the stream

 

Consciousness

Velveteen rivers

Soul shivers

As it drinks

From wells of knowledge to brinks

Of otherworldly

 

Meet my gaze

Follow us to maize

Bread brethren

Broken bond

We recompose he who yields

Reach out to the fields

Come out of the Frame

Come out of the Frame

Now behold

The singers shun harp

Bridled carp

Amazon waters

Parthenogenesis Time

Songs without a rhyme

 

Look onward

Images speak word

Hurried speech

Preachers preach

Untowardly practices

Points the mind misses

 

Snake hisses

Venom natural

Antidote

In my blood

The heart pumps despite the mud

Arteries high ways

 

In the flesh

Lies the golden truth

Bearing fruit

Of ages

When the stones speak of sages

Buried under lids

 

The world skids

Out of its axis

New polar

Distraction

The will sinking inaction

Wilting contraction

 

A traction

Come out of the frame

Beat the game

Now outsmart

Giants who live without Heart

Day wed through the Eye

I see you

Wherever I go

This world fades

Meaningless

Shades of light on everglades

Blocked by murkiness

 

The hours spent

Between days and nights

Embracing

Blue outcomes

The keeper’s voice grows in hums

Of the golden bees

 

The honey

Liquefied amber

Healing drip

Within grip

Of my folded palms I sip

The nectar of life

 

Coursing light

Sweeping my body

Mutating

Inner cells

Each change stops with chime of bells

Diligent process

 

Outside me

I replicate frame

Still the same

Yet different

Each copy contains its death

Like a stray still life

 

Frozen Time

Witnesses the flights

Nights embrace

Wane daylights

The tremors of settling in

Back into within

 

We paint shades

Of imagined happenings

Minds’ tremors

Giant playgrounds

Dissonance planted in sounds

Warped Universes

Look at me

I reflect your face

Shining bright

Sketched in me

Your inks an invitation

To discover nights

 

See me through

Light’s mysteries flee

From my touch

Lurching sparks

I reach within owls’ feathers

Gathering fate’s quills

 

Whiff my scent

Pick up on the shards

Embalming

Preserving

Remnants of sunshine and ache

As I exhale dark

 

Smell me dry

Of memories might

Conserving

Observing

The scent of despair and hope

Heady wanderings

 

Voice me soft

I fall like caress

From your lips

To my wait

Where two and two make more else

A fusion of sorts

 

Scream my name

In tattoos that writhe

Through my scars

Like dewdrops

On your hair and shoulders’ curve

The moon will glisten

 

Listen now

I speak of Beauty

Love your heart

Bless your soul

There are landscapes in my mind

Where we fly like birds

 

Hear me out

I will convince you

Of lovers

Who wander

In desert plains bringing rain

Like the rolling moss

 

Sense me bare

With lust and toil’s care

Light me spleen

Luster sheen

A repetition of thoughts

Litany’s prayers

 

Sixth me flare

Where shadows lead way

Light dies thin

Hurt follows

Second skins peel into day

Bright with future’s rub

Hark the Day

Rose into the Sun

Sing o Birds

 

Snow’s flowers

Chanting in my hair

Winter light

 

Days go by

Spring now slight beckons

Jasmine hums

 

Summer sways

The long sun-kissed Days

Crooning Hays

 

The lark shouts

Autumns wing Daylight

The leaves sing

 

Winter sprouts

Days in  short bouts

Nights serenade
