Grasshoppers’ clamour

Enchanting tunes in the wind

Green grass their stronghold

I knelt to the grass level

Mind connected with the Earth

 

Fallen leaves crunching

Pathways strewn bloody green trace

End of the leaves’ life

Thoughts roaming to other ends

Life and death in pendulum

 

Trees whisper in wind

Language of mother to child

Bark oozing shed tears

Motherless, childless I roamed

My balance above all odds

It rises

From deep within me

Molten fire

Lava’s ash

Through mind’s eye I see them crash

The colossal waves

 

Tsunami

Riding through the coast

In my mind

I see it

More than it was meant to be

Upon the first look

 

Bodies strewn

Particles of dust

The engines

Steel and rust

The only witness that stood

Desolation’s land

Queen of my kingdom

Queen of my kingdom

When dawn wakes

Meet me in valleys

Where kings walk

Unbroken

The look of love a token

Riddled with the night

 

The stage fright

Through loss of the mind

Settles score

With the past

Memories hidden to last

Beyond the probing

 

Sceneries

My frame enrobing

When I walked

In the fields

Renewed I am now revealed

Queen of my kingdom

Blackbirds fly

In the summer sky

Forests glow

In my chest

Bosom upon which to rest

Your body awaits

 

Flailing lungs

Gasping for the air

Broken nights

To repair

Toiling with my daily care

Replenishing days

 

Dreams to sow

In my memory

Within mind

Count me in

When the hope is running thin

The bliss I rewind

 

Reading of the poem:

Yann Tiersen – Porz Goret

Only you I loved

Only you I loved

Within me

I now find myself

Within out

Without in

Travesty of innocence

I know my own dark

 

The true heart

She wells inside me

Now she says

Remember

Everyone I laid eyes on

Only you I loved

 

Morning’s lark

Wakes in me the light

The nights’ cull

Comes undone

Weaving in chest none to fight

Soul ne’er black nor white

Daffodils

Spilling in the rain

The garden

Now awash

Flowers and fruit all laden

A feast for your eyes

 

Your features

Bright and definite

Like the love

Infinite

Gushing through the sentences

Composed by the heart

 

My shadow

Under your bright sun

Towards which

I now run

Happiness is not mere word

Expression unheard

 

Reading of the poem:

Half the Perfect World – Madeleine Peyroux

Trickle of honey

Trickle of honey

Flatter me

With your attention

Raw passion

To ignite

Teeth invitation to bite

Into fleshy sides

 

Seek and hide

Secrets to confide

I roam free

In your soul

Neither of us to control

Outcomes of the love

 

Your kisses

Trickle of honey

Embalm me

With sunshine

Your love is the only food

On which I could dine

 

Reading of the poem:

Norah Jones – Will you still love me tomorrow
