Feeding herd

Revolves around me

Claws of Hawk

On the fish

The lamb is opening dish

In supper of wolves

 

Spilling yoke

The hen rescued egg

Wisps of smoke

Ribs that poke

Talismans that we invoke

Through Truths that we spoke

 

The chatter

Subsides with the winds

Flying South

Closing mouth

Face racing against the clouds

I follow the birds

They holler

Thieves in window frames

Looting free

Rage in spree

Rampant rise against justice

Excuse injustice

 

March Hatter

Demented eyes glow

The smoke slow

The holes blow

Extrusion mind and matter

Nothing that we know

 

Pinnacle

Of the moving shades

Jack of spades

In red wades

My ghost above curtain blades

Flickers as it fades

Soaring mind

Explores inner heights

Life ebbing

Slowly leaves

The chest flutters barely heaves

As the breath shudders

 

The whispers

Imperceptible

Wisps of smoke

Hanging low

The ash now dissolving slow

As the flame simmers

 

Journey’s sum

Fantasy of math

Where numbers

Fade in ink

Recollections of them sink

As the chords vibrate

 

Chests dilate

With every full breath

The periods

A mere stop

Where the life will meet with death

Suspended dreamtime

 

Living Life

In between hiccups

Lonely days

Pave the way

Into knowledge of the self

No thoughts on the shelf

 

The suns’ rays

Gather more than heat

Like clockwork

They whir soft

Seconds count pastime aloft

Journey of the light

تلك الكلمات / Those translucent words

تلك الكلمات

(Poetically translated into a Senryu in English below or here)

٢٧ أبريل ٢٠١٦

Those words

تلك الكلمات

تضاربت في ثديي

طيور في قفص

و أغانيهم

كسر المد والجزرفي الدم

دورة القمر

 قد تحدثنا

مثل طنين مليون نحل

لفت أيدينا

حول العقود

الآجلة صورت

لهب الوحدة

تلك الكلمات

حمامة حلقت

فائقة الكسر

نار الوعود

رمز للضوء الداخلي

من ضمن الظلام

كل ما كان

يحل تدريجيا

دخان رمادي

قشرة الأرض

دائرة حول شمسين

أعماق الوضوح

قراءة القصيدة: 

Those translucent words

(poetic  “translation” into an English Senryu of a Senryu written in Arabic, above or here)

27 April 2016

Words English

Those translucent words

They beat fast in my bosom

Like fierce and caged birds

 

Their beautiful songs

Broken tides of the dark blood

A cycle of moon

 

We once spoke along

Like buzz of a million bees

Our hands were still wrapped

 

Around bright futures

That unfolding slow portrayed

Light of Unity

 

Those translucent words

They flew like a dove so high

Born Unbreakable

 

The shimmering bond

A token of inner light

Within the darkness

 

All that there once was

Gradually dissolving

In grey wisps of smoke

 

Earth’s crust Revolving

Circling my two fading suns

Depths of Clarity

There are roads

Winding through thickets

Wild bushes

Tangled trees

The heart of where humming bees

Fierce lead to freedom

 

The bridges

In between the worlds

They shiver

Rumbling stone

On their tar I walk alone

My feet grey blue smoke

 

I hear calls

Of towering bluebells

They ring knells

Of kingdoms

Cheshire cat whose head I stroke

Purrs in mirth’s response

They abscond

The reasons excuse

Their flight dark

Bridled spark

We walk while dogs sit and bark

Random happenings

 

The chest heaves

Ounces of regret

Woven tight

Into might

Fading strength as he believes

Truth of falling leaves

 

Knitted words

Loose ends flying high

Encounter

Indentures

Between whispers and the sigh

I find your heartbeat

Whisper soft

Bathe me in cotton

Breathe me in

Breathe us out

Garlands of smoke on a cloud

Coursing through your lungs

 

Stay revel

Under mists of fate

Cast the spell

Show and tell

Like children discovering

Seal the iron ring

 

I will bring

Yesterday’s anthems

Cast again

Nations’ song

We flock to where we belong

Birds of a feather

 

Steel leather

They bind but the frame

The mind free

The soul high

I wish upon highest skies

Over green valleys

 

Show me maps

That I may seek you

In journeys

Of resolve

We broil more than we solve

The mind a weak tool

 

Stay in six

Pleasures confuse me

Like railways

They split us

Carriages roar North and South

Accidents on tracks

I keep having to choose again sometimes different videos as people keep blocking videos for whatever rights on music and images, leaving me and the reader/listener/viewer with an empty video link. Sometimes the video blends in still with the poem and is meaningful but often only the sound experience remains. Apologies for that but I can’t help people making their videos private or youtube just censoring everyone. I had to replace Nu – Man o to and Floater by Waldeck. Sometimes I don’t even know what to replace as I was not writing the names before and therefore don’t remember which video conveyed my groove at that point in time when I was writing the poem

Nu – MAN O TO (Original Mix)

Memories – Waldeck

Jamaican Bistro – Waldeck

Floater – Waldeck

Thousand one nights with spirit

Thousand one nights with spirit

7-8 May 2015

 spirit8

The night cloaked in black

Hooded bodies that scurried

Onwards to the feast

Lavish celebrations rang

Through the impalpable dark

 

The moon stared silent

Lakes froze in icy stillness

Dense whispers beckoned

The air was thick with minds’ hiss

As dreams carved angles in souls

 

Old tides joined new shores

Stories were told in mind’s voice

Dim lights shone on mists

Unlit eyes weaved your grey shape

Chest throbbed with end of lost tales

 

Shadowy stirrings

Spread out through smoky darkness

Plethora of wisps

Thousand one nights with spirit

Flashed through in a few heartbeats
