She was bedraggled
The fleas were like a waistcoat
spreading around her

She smoothed her hands down
over a sea of darkness 
It caused her to sneeze

The ticks clung on hard
Waves of red and black coloured
points where some pests died

She jumped suddenly
from the comfort of the couch
wisps of hair flaring

The couch burst alit
Once an abode of pleasure
it now spouted flames

Her hair gushed red streaks
The warmth at her temples hurled
sinister designs

All contentment gone
her face erupted fury
as eyebrows belched fire

Blankets of water
trickled down path of relief
on flanks that spewed rain

Quiet times restored
her throat emitted strange notes
she regained her poise

With a bowing head
she welcomed the contrivance
her plan hid in mind

Fools thought her broken
She smiled at the morons’ schemes
her vengeance supreme

The arch in her brows
hiss of her inner being
only dunce ignores

Stellar detection
she examined first the clowns
The idiots stared

A flutter arose
In hearts of the compromised
The innocent woke

Prime numbers sashayed
The nerds ran helter-skelter
Her arms crushed their will

Wet grass tickled feet

Wet grass tickled feet

30 October 2020

 
  
 Children of morrows;
 their cries ringing everywhere
 soaking Earth purple
  
 Foggy landscapes met
 teary eye saturated
 with pains of fledglings
  
 Stormy weather formed
 flower of life in my chest 
 that drenched my heart red
  
 Pouring rain renewed
 hope in another Earth’s rise
 The bud of my thoughts
  
 Petals bloomed in mind
 blossoms of tomorrow’s world
 that dewy drops spelt
  
 Misty skies breathed soft
 whispers of promises kept
 Wet grass tickled feet

The dust had settled

The dust had settled

20 October 2020

Landscapes gyrating

Moon a backdrop of ashes

the Earth spun onwards


The soot filled the sky

fragments disintegrating

the ground split in flakes


Dirt strewn everywhere

the flowers lost to the weed

battles in gardens


Tea estates littered

cinders from the teeming pit

Magmatic plates moved


Soil’s upheaval

The hills turned into mountains;

valleys disappeared


Churning sand of time

Gradual recovery

the dust had settled

Roses clipped in bud

feathers sinking within dust

remembrance pale shroud

 

Wings outstretched to realms

beyond any worldly gaze

pinions branching out

 

Multiverse exhales

a myriad universes

none with fluff to trim

Hedgehogs escaped tyres

Forest trees resumed their sighs

Summer lost its shine

 

Winter garnished Earth

Willow trees bore their limbs low

Heavy heads rested

 

Springtime beckoned slow

The air pulsed with renewal

Rivers touched mountains

 

Unchained, undying

I sipped hard from nature’s cup

My heart hummed wild songs

Without a ripple

the lotus stood on water

white on sombre green

 

A frog jumped forward

Lines formed on the water’s face

before they dwindled

 

The lotus balanced

the leaves curled around the stem

the furrows faded

In transformation

In transformation

When you mask feelings

there is no chance of advance

into betterment

 

Take on rapid change

Within heart evolution

aspect of progress

 

In transformation

lies deep the ability

to face moving odds

A heron looked on

A heron looked on

8 June 2020

The pond was icy

Surface a thin pane of glass

Like mirror it cracked

 

The gap extended

Glistening scales gleamed within

Their presence promise

 

A heron looked on

Slowly the surface did break

The fish would come through
