I am gone

Did you see ?

The ripple-clad lake

In shining

Replicates

The wonders that we can be

When we’re pacified

 

Speak to me

The birds have lost songs

Their beaks blue

Like my soul

My mind relinquished control

The lack in your words

 

Hone me slow

Caress my feathers

I am gone

In song shrill

Birds calling on window sill

They follow shadows

He thought that love was a battle

One to put as task

The chains and tools that he’d rattle

In the cage she’d bask

 

Envigored by resolution

He moved with giant strides

Yet it was the wrong solution

Strong the soul she rides

 

She beckoned to him taught him peace

Of leaves that mind did rake

Offered soul and heart to appease

The lady of the lake

In nation

Imagination

A wild guess

To confess

The beauty of age will bless

The brave stand duress

 

The jesters

Of court that festers

Judges fools

Invalid rules

Time to go back to old schools

Reinvented tools

 

She then spake

Lady of the Lake

Tis the child

She said mild

For all nations now grow wild

Ring of secrets break

The fool yawns

Brethren’s darkened spawns

History

In making

From the skull and bones aching

The truth often dawns

 

In Legends

Beginning upends

Within dreams

Muffled screams

Of the red roses stutters

Restless mind mutters

 

Burnt on stake

Lady of the Lake

Red in blue

Infused hue

Holy blood the long-lost clue

In Time will renew

The daybreak

Follows lengthy night

Wanderers

Scurry fast

Through winding alleys backstreets

Hidden dark retreats

 

Within lairs

They compose in wells

Ancient spells

The tongue tells

The belly full grows and swells

Dark composition

 

Transition

Cycle of ages

The sages

Welcome change

The fools depths of Earth derange

My kingdom will come

 

Tired humdrum

Lusterless tragic

Poor magic

Stains my name

The wild children mine to tame

Chains of wicker break

 

Souls to wake

The lids silent monk

Bosom shake

Like Tree trunk

Leaves of yesteryear to rake

Dim path to the Lake

 

The Heart spake

Tongue of stone mountains

Concealing

Galleries

Revel in what’s revealing

Whisper to the stars

Hovercraft

Picking up surges

Morpheus

Friend and Foe

Dealing or reducing blow

From within dreamland

 

We expand

In knowledge of light

Laced with dark

Subtle spark

In between the waterfalls

The switch lies shining

 

Dark shivers

In lakes of my mind

Where owls prowl

Like tigers

Their eyes jaded obsession

Of recognition

 

Streams of me

Gather through the flares

The Beast wears

Many masks

Irreducible the tasks

In crossing rivers

 

Bear me ankh

She circles ankles

The Mother

Lifts shackles

Those that divide spaces ring

Trinkets of morrows

 

Spent sorrows

Realised in heart

They grow joy

Out of shrubs

The tigress daily counts cubs

Under her nights’ watch

The blood runs smoothly

Heightened with warmth of passion

Shimmering through veins

 

Six days to remind

A history to unwind

Written through the heart

 

Discovering ink

Running through my fingertips

With red of roses

 

Unborn offering

Their winding ecstatic threads

Traces of glory

 

Sketch of bloom in sky

Replicating red gushing

Beating within chest

 

Remnants of past run

Through aqueducts of my frame

Infused Lake Como
