Stillness of my breath

Stillness of my breath

Summer turned lazy

It watched the path to waters

sizzle under rain

 

My footsteps left stains

of earthen recollections

green grass and brown dirt

 

The winding path led

To where waters encountered

stillness of my breath

 

Reading of the poem:

Beethoven – Sonate au Clair de Lune + 300 Peintures

My chest blazed alight

My chest blazed alight

I painted the skies

the colour of you and me

It rained like monsoons

 

The twilight stood out

The moon shaded its surface

The night breathed tremors

 

My chest blazed alight

Fireflies hid in spaces

your hand now held high

Looking glass flutters

Imagination runs wild

Hidden realms move slow

 

The will breaks the want

Clusters of thoughts roam alone

Happenstance strikes heart

 

Adventures beckon

Hearts of dragons follow suit

Maze in mind ensues

 

Flowers open buds

Colours explode in the skies

Codes of nature blend

 

Summertime weds spring

Beginning meets the ending

Meanings spring to light

 

The pathways dissolve

Initiation settled

primary resolve

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

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

The anger welled up

Within the bosom that flared

Like forest aflame

 

It bore no logic

Curving through the mind’s landscapes

It shattered all sense

 

Easing through the flames

My worded intention spun

Recreating Life

Shinnobu – Only by Love

Catch me when I fall

The ducks are flying

Their sturdy wings an emblem

Of solidity

 

Wisps of airborne white

Traces of a tree shedding

All springtime’s whispers

 

Bosoms opening

Memories of summer hay

Open green meadows

 

Waterhen gliding

The reed caressed by the winds

Heartbeats in the chest

 

Willow tree rising

The bees humming in the sky

Afternoons of May

 

Summertime blue thoughts

Sprouts springing in rising mind

Catch me when I fall

North and South battle

Irreconcilable straits

Conflict in bosom

 

Flourishing in reed

Graceful attire of heart

Swaying to the rhythm

 

Solid ground denied

My soul like a wild gypsy

Yearning for travel

My heart beats softly

Everlasting tunes in soul

Pouch of bundled joy

 

I whirl on the Earth

My mind lost in the blue skies

Sketches of castles

 

Infinite passion

Within finite appearance

I am all though none

Clouds gathered above

Movement back into winter

Spring’s blossoms swaying

 

Waterhen clucking

Seagulls flying in the sky

The canal flowing

 

Spring’s fight evolving

My inner realms revolving

Around shape of things
