(untitled)#62

with the dawn fading

as all that burns bright dims – just

childhood memories

.

brightly twinkling stars

constellations in grasses

tread softly through heaven

.

in grasses I left

long may you burn firefly

a wasteland beacon

.

with a lantern search

the gloom of this world – darker

for a deathless me

.

behind a black veil

a life-full of dark secrets

will you choose: I do

.

an arranged marriage

will we make an old couple

wedded to this world

.

dew to quench the fire

shall I ever be alone

do not fear to leave

.

in this shadow world –

this nether-nether land –

is there still magic?

.

from source to soul

detoxify the mirage –

a matrix of lies

each train ride –

a tourniquet of boredom

constricting my heart

character review:

a blank personality –

my poker face

descrying this world

conscientiously objecting

to normalcy

methods twist –

where darkness falls – reason lies

invoking nature

.

earth, water, air … fire!

fingers twist conjuring shapes

transforming futures

.

bitter thoughts attack

 inaction’s utter violence –

the calm in my eyes

.

the mundane facade

before it is unleashed

prepare for the storm

.

feel the pressure wave:

smell the rain before it falls –

hear the gust – it comes!

.

sliding doors open

silently disappearing

the calm of the night

.

this thread I walk –

this tangled web:

where dost it lead?

Embers

raising the blind

to the gloom of the world

how-so-ever dully it may shine

welcoming the green

vigour of plants

to illuminate the room

even between the tree and I

hanging mist is draped

suspended like a thought

imperceptibly – droplets in vortices

swirling in dreamtime

around the thrush’s wings

as complaining, remonstrating

with a flick of her feathers

she plucks an orange firebrand

from the glowing embers of berries

looks me in the eye – and is gone!
