I counted my scales
Irreducible creature
I was compounded

The dragon within
flew most immense distances
between sleep and wake

Iridescent wings,
chest multiplying colours
like serpent ablaze

A tail to tell tales
engorged with the wings’ passion
I slithered back home

Serpentine - Solace

Peasant ennobled
exalted by the honours
raised head to adorn

The stern church endowed
a bishop to coronate
head shaking off dust

The stance handed down
raised wild bodies to enthrone
forsaken the crown

Feet in the gravel
pebbles thrown in old fountains
arm to unravel

Sanction renewal
erect a hanging treetop
enable embers

Jubilatory
settle platinum attire
rekindle fire

Induct strong the grit
molten powder raises flames
hanging tree now lit

Victim of the ploy

Victim of the ploy
11 February 2022

Change clutches my gait;
motion in my mind imparts
traces in my heart

Footstep’s movement dwells
in otherworldly places
that my stride foretells

Eye follows a mark,
hand strokes hidden stirring lights
trail of footprint’s sights

Steps taken in haste
move the music of morrows
Bittersweet their taste

A walk on rainbows;
action of colourful flames
lisping loud my names

A threefold act shifts:
of me I am the decoy,
victim of the ploy

Of innocence lost

Of innocence lost

Her skin felt a burn
A thousand suns flared within
Ancient tattoos writhed

Blisters wrote on skin
a story of a lifetime
wrapped within gray folds

Darkness was conquered
The old adage came to light
New Order commenced

A flash of moonlight
Illuminated her eyes
Sun’s flames wrestled moon

Tired men kept watch
The battle was an emblem
Olden moon beat sun

Sun flickered dying
The children came to New Age
of innocence lost

The death of her dreams

The death of her dreams
3 January 2022

Windchimes blowing mud
Replica of ghostly snow
trickling music slides

A symphony arises
blended with her heart
Musical feat strays

Orchestra goes on
Sound a slave to her teardrops
a simple witches’ brew

Fusion of features
An amalgam of sounds stir
Ice around her heart

A pulp of papers
Letters from a time long gone
components of slush

Hope and fear’s union
The slight feelings compounded
the death of her dreams

Now ready to dry

Now ready to dry
27 December 2021

Cascading thoughts fly
Riveting performances
meet my starry eye

Fireworks reveal
a universe in a sigh
that slow flows me by

A peal of laughter (Appeal)
a sacrifice to the stars
in quest of the hours (Inquest)

Urgencies dissolved
natural phenomenon
unwinding my veils

Pray reach out to me
your hands token of despair
stroking sad my hair

Observe me throughout
I am a bunch of flowers
now ready to dry

River of Blue – Diane Arkenstone

Into creation
hurtling on through the cosmos
indigo orb swirls

Sphere twirling upwards
A sapphire world speeds on
into turquoise wells

The planet moves slow
blue waters flow silently
wet eyes follow stars

Germs in each corner

Germs in each corner

New virus attacked
Roll of thunder announced it;
connected minds roared

The disease flared through
Decay spread through synapses;
infection rumbled

Head counted microbes
The future resounded through
the boom of the bugs

Germs in each corner
Spelt name of a new species
that grumbled through space

The sea progresses

The winds carried me
delicate wings fluttering
in ascent of skies

Dark clouds gathered tight
In graceful touch of the night
while the moons surged sleek

The days’ rise upturned
sunlit landscapes glittered white
The tides washed the beach

Sparkling sugar straits
reflections of sandy slopes
swell under the sun

Bright eyes stretch inwards
gathering the suns rays’ kiss
irises spotless

The sea progresses
my body in solemn vow
meets dizzy waves’ pull

Heads covered in fuzz

Heads covered in fuzz
18 September 2021

The down on her lips
bristled at the sight of them
they coloured street lights

Her peach lips curled up
her face mask of amazement
her blushing cheeks taut

Her muscles strained locked
moving into position
her body knelt down

Every fiber lit
she tore through blooming flowers
fresh grass met her feet

She watched them fearful
her cheeks aflush from the run
her hair in cascades

They reached out to her
features glowing in the dark
heads covered in fuzz
