Hush

Hush

15 May 2018

Hush George Redhawk

 

Hush she said and the woods were silent. The pitter-patter of raindrops a deafening sound covering her waning heartbeat. Hush she said and the rain softly subsided, an occasional drop on a leaf resounding like a thud in her head. Hush she said and the leaves ceased caressing the wind, their whispers fading into the rising dusk. Hush she said and the blood in her veins slowed tenfold until she could hear the drip like a background music to the occasional flap of wings of a cawing crow shaking off the rain. Hush she said and the darkness engulfed her with its palpable silence like a long forgotten and well-worn cloak. Hush she said her eyes finally closing, her soul softly embracing the dark night.

My lover’s dances

They are petals of jasmine

White across black tar

 

My lover’s dances

They are mute conversation

Speech all red matter

 

My lover’s dances

They are the song of the lark

Singing through night bird

 

My lover’s dances

They are the wings of the hawk

Totem swoops on seas

 

My lover’s dances

They are the heartbeat ancient

Of void and matter

 

My lover’s dances

They are the blue symphony

Of purple blooming

The Hierophant – Ben Leinbach

Je revis le trépas d’un sein qu’on engorge / I revisit the death of a breast that is choked

Je revis le trépas d’un sein qu’on engorge

(Poème écrit en Alexandrin sous forme de sonnet occitan. Voir traduction ci-bas ou ici)

Dans une vision tonneau chercher grands horizons

Un tour de cœur refaire pour un monde visiter

Créer un monde de beau au-delà des chansons

Désillusions défaire pour cœur ressusciter

 

Tenir au doigt l’anneau feux sacrés étalons

Un cœur rouge à parfaire de nacre à imiter

Cygnes graciles là sur l’eau ; leur pure beauté hélons

Rouge dans blanc fait roseau bleu spleen à limiter

 

Dans clairière endormie je vaquais aux besognes

Sous un ciel de lilas qui me prenait à gorge

Refaite taxidermie lasse livrée aux charognes

 

Je revis le trépas d’un sein qu’on engorge

Pilule hyperthermie pour cœur qui par trop cogne

Marchand de rêves sépias belles couleurs qu’on égorge

 

Lecture du poème: 

Les roses blanches – Berthe Sylva

I revisit the death of a breast that is choked

In tunnel-like vision look for great horizons

A tour of heart remake for a world to visit

Create world of beauty beyond the simple songs

Disillusionment lose for Heart to Resurrect

 

To hold at finger ring sacred fires measures

A red heart to perfect mother-of-pearl to mime

Graceful swans on water; Their pure beauty we’ll hail

Red in white made a reed for blue spleen to limit

 

In a sleepy clearing, I set about my task

Under a lilac sky that seized me at the throat

Renewed taxidermy delivered to carrion

 

I revisit the death of a breast that is choked

A hyperthermia pill for heart that beats too much

Merchant of sepia dreams lovely colors slaughtered

Genius

The light in the mind

Two of kind

Blood rewind

A twin bird from a dark cell

Ripping cage corners

 

Ravenous

Brittle Heart’s outcry

From the split

Of close knit

A chest breaking teeth to grit

Skies path candlelit

 

Gracious

Punctuality

Kings respect

None to fret

We hasten to seconds met

Within Earthly Times

 

Radius

Mid of my circle

Riddled Pi

My mind’s eye

Takes me places where I lie

Within God’s bosom

 

Glorious

Unveiled symphonies

Mind at ease

None to tease

Cradled lion on his knees

Master of the breeze

 

Rapturous

Final encounter

Your footstep

In Heartbeat

The bells ringing as we meet

Blue kingdoms my fleet

Pulse at jawline ring at temples

The anger rises in defeat

Designs in blue waves now compete

Child of chatter cheeks in dimples

 

Promise lost the paper crumples

Shards of splinters in my eye meet

Remnants of the yonder heartbeat

Trodden feelings deadwood samples

 

Reaching through the timeless spaces

Vain wane invented memories

Waking sleep for Earthen traces

 

Discovering the height of trees

Movements halted muddled laces

Of weights unpacked the Heart mind frees

Three fourteen

Shortened rendering

Measured sigh

Breath of Pi

We broadened dainty patchwork

Fractals encircling

 

Silence grows

With the throbbing beat

In Heartpath

We renew

The old ways lost in the crude

Like trees in concrete

 

Regal cloaks

Flow from the shoulders

Of Elders

Walking nude

Revelation of the flesh

The delicate mesh

 

Painted frames

Of haunting descent

All the pains

Underwent

They glisten in moonlit night

Awash in the light

 

The practice

Silver clad moons sight

Surgical

The new flight

Precision of the target

On shores we forget

 

No malice

In heart of the child

Elm tree bends

Blood chalice

Carving through carmine lifetimes

Morrows twining suns

Spreading beak

Welcoming sunshine

The lark chirps

Reaching peak

Towering above the days

The Heart the mind sways

 

Yesterday

Was but jester day

Overkill

Of dark clowns

Greed envy hate ill that drowns

In blackened rivers

 

I float high

My wings Hearts’ vessels

Energy

Of Heart beats

Power coursing through my veins

Never corrupting
