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

Dream catcher

Weaving in moonlight

Steadfast light

Strange the night

The bride clad in eerie white

In the dark watcher

 

No regrets

Water roars in streams

Rivulets

In my dreams

Twenty three undone in seams

Twirling violets

 

Baleful looks

In between the books

She watches

Through the crowds

Sprinkled garlands of white shrouds

Gathering the clouds

Chalk drawing of flower

Chalk drawing of flower

15 August 2017

 

This is a new trial in chalk of a flower. I am not sure which flower it is. I initially thought azalea but am not doubting it. Unfortunately there was nothing on the name when I saw the image.

 

I have used smudging as well as direct chalk application. The medium I drew upon is coloured plain brown sheet. My guess is that this would have been better on a lighter colour of the same type of sheet.

 

I hope you like it nevertheless

Mind aglow

Weaving through the flow

Land to sow

New rainbow

Heartbeats of anger to slow

Compassion to grow

 

Blow conceit

Bury the deceit

Three to greet

One to treat

The dark powers meet defeat

In the one way street

 

Hate to shun

Days roll into fun

Dread undone

Through the Sun

Remnants of darkness white spun

Prayer to the One

Breath invoke

From between my ribs

Peace ad libs

Memory quips

Thoughts of hands sliding on hips

Photons backlash whips

 

Your eyes smoke

Blowing in the wind

Wafts of life

Riddled strife

Your nights’ struggles in between

Days of breathlessness

 

Mind to poke

Synapses connect

Heart erect

Fort inspect

Flags hoisted now lily white

No monsters to smite

 

Laid in den

Lions count to ten

Candlesticks

Canticles

The count melting icicles

Seventeen again

My lover’s dances

My lover’s dances

My lover’s dances

They are petals of jasmine

White across black tar

 

My lover’s dances

They are mute conversation

Speech all red matter

 

My lover’s dances

They are the song of the lark

Singing through night bird

 

My lover’s dances

They are the wings of the hawk

Totem swoops on seas

 

My lover’s dances

They are the heartbeat ancient

Of void and matter

 

My lover’s dances

They are the blue symphony

Of purple blooming

Pitch black hurts

The sensitive eyes

Reeling move

On blackboards

Revealing tempo of groove

Distilling the whites

 

Flying kites

Hover above me

Thin slices

Of glories

They regenerate delights

Of childhood stories

 

Hold with me

My grasp on them weak

I dare not

Even speak

As the ropes pulsate with throb

Of the blackened mob

 

Body loss

Puppeteers rewind

In twin peaks

Riddled streaks

Measures of hue man eat he

Shredded dignity

 

Lines to cross

In between jigsaw

Puzzle me not

We forgot

The clear-cut lines of the law

Lesser of evils

 

Weigh me down

Burden of anvils

Beat upon

Lost forlorn

The making of the sword less

Soulful from soulless

 

Talk to me

From withering caves

Your mouth shrine

Frozen times

The words fed to the wordless

Soul forever mine

Riddle me

Bullets of the fall

Showering

Innocents

Rows of blue begonias drenched

In carmine water

 

Ex-spleen me

Meaningless phrases

Connecting

The white dots

On whiteboard chalk erases

The sight of the light

 

Think of me

As a little cat

The Nine Lives

All Times’ Fleet

Throw me from the highest heights

I land on my feet

Diversion

Entertainment bleak

Entrainment

Of the mind

The distractions that we seek

World lost in background

 

Diversion

Tactical motion

Switching lanes

Harvesting

The end result of our pains

The mind occupied

 

Diversion

Children of the Sun

In circles

How they run

The sand master outruns them

Their lives now mayhem

 

Diversion

Shifting of the poles

Frantic move

Without groove

Quickly inverting the roles

The black for the white

 

Diversion

Preoccupation

In the past

Cannot last

Grass root of every nation

Running in the wild

 

Diversion

Moving deathly ways

Path to green

From unseen

Cryogenic sleepers wake

More than world at stake

To go with the flow resistance now dead

To go with the flow resistance now dead

Life’s complexity in seasons of thrall

Levitating wings to treasure the sun

Scorching heat that wrings the branches undone

The higher the tree the greater the fall

 

Synchronicity motions us enthrall

A new time that brings the feeling of One

Heart closer that sings the shadows outrun

Code eternity to seconds recall

 

The high and the low heart skies or in lead

Contrasting the lanes pitch black and snow white

Love fear sets aglow in end of the dread

 

Misconstrued our pains sunken tides the fight

To go with the flow resistance now dead

Purple suns the stains from faces of light
