Our burdens

The sum of sorrows

We carry

Their dead gait

Knees caving under the weight

Of wasted morrows

 

Open heart

Let the sorrow drip

Like the rain

Kissing Earth

See in their embrace rebirth

Of inner children

 

We were once

The kings of playgrounds

Our chests bare

Laid down hair

The dark stringent marks of Time

Still unwoven threads

 

Soul carefree

We danced with the winds

That shook fierce

All the fires

Within heart carving desires

The mind a wild bird

 

Bleak routine

Settling in with hooks

Anchored us

Rooted feet

Day by day we faced defeat

Of the larky times

 

The dreams dreamt

They are lost in mists

Read in books

Blown in winds

Paper scattered now rescinds

Every magic word

Blue ribbons

Hang from the dark skies

As the rains

Fill the plains

With the remains of seasons

Spent in wasted stance

 

Plush meadows

Once breathed laughter’s lines

As the sun

Shone brightly

Upon yards now unsightly

A blossom of graves

 

They built caves

Within heathen grounds

Released hounds

On the weak

Their kings grovel as we speak

Their battlefields red

 

Newly wed

The bells ring for you

Pealing love

High above

The cries to bring out the dead

As the black tides sweep

 

Put to rest

Soul in house arrest

The moonbeams

Hush its screams

It wanes withers but for dreams

Daily sustenance

Daylight broad

The waking penance

Where I walk

Where I talk

My mind in slow resonance

With the sleeping hordes

 

Iron rod

Piercing my ribcage

They seek rage

Through outrage

The body feels mind repeals

The soul mere stillness

 

Walk along

I will recount lives

Filling you

With wonders

From deep wells I draw splendors

My mouth a brush stroke

 

We relive

Many lost embers

The frail heart

Remembers

Feelings more than brief memoirs

Stories for boudoirs

 

United

The pieces of us

They sing loud

The Swan Song

Crystalline drops that take us

To where we belong

The night wears

My limitless frame

Like a cloak

Of darkness

Concealing the light within

My endless source bright

 

Soul awake

Watches as they quake

Minds clinging

Desperate

To a grey world now dying

Broken synapses

 

Weak attempts

Mending the bridges

Stitching seams

Killing dreams

Pushing dreamers to ridges

End of the journey

 

Infinite

The rays of the heart

They soar high

Into sky

Explosion of truths in lie

Cosmic clarity

 

Scarcity

Fabricated scheme

Enslaving

Paths of love

Clipping the wings of the dove

Of lost abundance

 

We will reach

The valleys of hope

Downward slope

Upward push

Known forces of resistance

All fake rules to breach

The bird on the hand

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

Les distances anoblies aux lisières de l’émoi

Que le cœur étreint fort lors le cerveau médit

Surannées établies les limites de ce moi

Vieil orgueil en soi mort que l’intérieur prédit

 

Règle de base rétablie la fusion unique loi

Enchevêtrement sort que destin expédie

Résistance affaiblie mollesse de bon aloi

Que la danse de nos corps à ce futur dédie

 

Je vis d’illusions fermes flottant d’entre viscères

Des rêves bleus infinis suintant en moi le soir

Si ambigus les termes de ces mots qui lacèrent

 

Paroles creuses impunies le géant arrosoir

Inondant cœurs qui germent comme dans une vaste rizière

De nos chairs réunies éternel reposoir

Of our flesh united eternal altars

(Translation of an Italian sonnet written in French. Original version above or here)

1 May 2016

Distances ennobled in the fringes of emotion

The heart hugs hard while the brain slanders

Outdated established the limits of this me

Old pride in oneself death that the inside predicts

 

Basic rule restored the merger only law

Entanglement fate that destiny expedites

Weakened resistance pliability a good sign

That the dance of our bodies dedicates to this future

 

I live of firm illusions floating between viscera

Infinite blue dreams seeping into me at night

So ambiguous the terms of these words that lacerate

 

Empty unpunished words the giant watering can

Flooding hearts that germinate like a vast paddy field

Of our flesh united eternal altars

Caring much

Flames in heart a pyre

Soul outlet

Part regret

Equal portions of the two

The fear, the desire

 

Climb higher

Mountains may have peaks

Yet they stare

Into clouds

Solace a vision of shrouds

On heavenly frame

 

Call my name

In whirling waters

Abyss stares

Into skies

In between a string of lies

Man-made disasters

 

I fly free

The heart in throbbing

Holds the key

To kingdoms

There are castles in the air

Between mind and flair

 

Implosion

Internal order

Aligned streams

Path of dreams

The world less than what it seems

Dissolving matter

 

Rays scatter

Remnants of the fear

Scorching suns

Raise the bar

Feet walking on liquid tar

Roads of redemption

 

Losing touch

Recollections void

Nothingness

A slow spin

Neither lose nor ever win

Souls in between worlds

Sacrifice

A three letter word

Embedded

In my streams

Your broken body in dreams

As they take you down

 

They walk high

Above wilting stars

Their reign dark

Our fate stark

Destiny written in scars

Etched in our feathers

 

Soul weathers

Many thunderstorms

The heart heals

In the light

From coursing river it swarms

Energy of blue

 

IMG_2541

 

To renew

A leap of blind faith

Dark wedded

Starry skies

Waking souls discover lies

Under white covers

 

Moon hovers

Ominous silver

Lost star’s gate

It dissolves

Within the streams of their hate

As bosoms lay bare

 

Reach within

To morrows’ stories

I hold sight

Of beacons

Soaring eagles beyond might

Of Kings and regents

 

IMG_2532

 

We are Queens

Within our kingdoms

Bold reasons

Hold our heads

Above the valleys he dreads

Renewal our means

 

She gives birth

To our sorrows’ death

We inhale

Holy breath

Woven through the times on Earth

Chosen detention

 

Glory’s wake

Within the surging

Energy

Coursing through

The hand extended now you take

Psalms our intention

Regret to rehearse

Regret to rehearse

12 February 2016

The memory

Pregnant with silence

Fluttering

Inside heart

There is a fork where we part

Twining in futures

 

They speak soft

Of renewed endings

Rising high

Skidding fast

I lurch beyond my own past

Of broken treasures

 

Unchained hymns

Sing to my bosom

Chances slim

Where I meet

The tidings of our defeat

Suspended in air

 

The waves roll

Breaking on the shores

Where they flee

Thoughts that breathed

Invented by you and me

A world sprawled hopeful

 

We kill dreams

Mindless death’s tailors

Sewing firm

Soul will squirm

We merely tighten the seams

Threads pins and scissors

 

My mind blank

A throbbing beat haunts

Heart that sank

Into spleen

While everyday wiping clean

Memory of the taunts

 

Careless hands

They shuffle shaking

A loose deck

Where cards curse

Folly of their own making

Regret to rehearse

Morrows in the Sun

You cast stones

Forgetting ripples

Your mind hard

Tired bones

Every hurt that you discard

Builds a waning castle

 

You can live

You can also die

In between

Nothingness

Even in shadows of Spain

Stories will be told

 

All we see

Dreamtime’s harmony

Oft disturbed

By dark thoughts

Night mares mere taunts in flashes

Of hooves beating sand

 

We will reign

The scars of the past

Into love

Forgiveness

She is deep like the marshes

Bordering mind’s land

 

We hold high

The hopes of our hearts

Yet we flaunt

Shields of tin

We forego the love for taunt

Smarting soul within

 

Crushed dreams

Give but few breadcrumbs

Trails gone cold

Eaten hearts

Oh the wincing how it smarts

When the heart grows old

 

I restore

The blackbird with blue

Fingers locked

Brush ablaze

Breathing out a love so true

Your face in a haze

 

All the lies

Now they’re washed away

Naked stand

With your love

Your blue heart battlefields’ death

Yet the surging bliss

 

Do you feel

The morrows have come

Creeping slow

Yellow glow

Collecting wild daffodils

Resonating thrills

 

You sink deep

Feathered rainbows splash

Across you

Coloured hue

Your body an artist’s dream

The gleam of moonbeam

 

They come fast

The morrows that last

You’re sinking

Heart blinking

Red SOS love’s inking

Splattered in your mind

 

Remember

Morrows in the Sun

When dark calls

And love weeps

Between our bodies it seeps

Glory to be whole

Merry go

Round and round it twirls

This strange world

Leaves nothing

Unturned rocks withstand all times

Even when they’re hurled

 

Easy come

Yet hard to depart

We lonesome

Reinvent

Weird new ways to be alone

Silence of the Heart

 

We are full

Minds saturated

Dream filled thoughts

Milky ways

The soul wincing as it slays

Demons in dungeons

 

Empty hearts

The love forgotten

Banners high

Reason floats

I build castles without moats

Accessible prey

 

Beast circling

The approach an art

Flanks observed

Poise absurd

Learn survival from the herd

Inner voice pleads shrill

 

Lonely King

Sun in skies sets me

Baleful blue

Hues sallow

Earthen mouthfuls entrenched deep

Within I swallow

Heartaches lumps

Stories lost untold

Dark bitter

Skins goosebumps

Crawling through my systems’ breach

Melodies unfold

 

Morrows Queen

I stitch inward seam

Zipped faces

Mouths uncut

Cinderella in a dream

Eyes in wake stay shut

 

Sweep and sweep

Princess rags to stitch

Carriage meek

Fire for witch

Secrets close to bosoms keep

Endings out of reach

 

Pumpkins sleek

Words mere empty pun

Tell a snitch

Favours meant

All the signals that I sent

Lost in trance late shun

 

Dervish whirls

High up in the skies

Keep the pearls

Pigs snort hard

Pick up on the wayward shard

Beady eyes and grunt

 

Choice so vast

Yet mind so tight set

I wiped brunt

You wiped slate

I translate the old regret
