“Sacred Lakes”
There is magic in your shaman bones stories shaken like strange mojo busy under cover of autumn leaves turning burnished topaz gold idling unrushed roll over
in honeyed slumber
turning back hands to face a time of blushing green you are seen turning naked face smiling up towards blue sky the warmth of his sun breathes life back over you nightingales sing in the waiting time and recall in their waking lullabies times gone by
your heart beats slow rhymes
depth charge drum softly humming vibrations of silver crystal amethyst shards in emerald eyes min min lights spectrally guide you towards the lightening ridges the core discovered, penetrating jade forests of deep secrets quiet missives pointing bones declarations that once condemned lead you to open pit three parts divine comedic where some noble grand host there sits holding hands out to you in the Never Never land
it speaks from eyes deep as wishing wells cacheting fresh glistening diamonds
rising on unsteady transparent feet silent on sacred ground you walk el dante hushed and softly sound holding fast to the wings of apostle crows and angelic things
quills, falling feathers black as ink
ruffling fresh stories remain hidden in the mist the grist milled from some new law sunk in sugar dissolving vinegar now depart the season of Winter tomes of pages like rivers
forever running into a mystery ocean
majestic forgiving you are in eternal flight writing lines of safe passage with the avian beaked scribes wearing masks who like ghosts of abbey monks chant chortling whistles leaving their footprints like chimney soot on the land of white cotton clouds clean sheets like fresh snow joyful and billowing yarns unravelling on lines holding their arms out to you gifting alms with embroidered edges coloured with dreams washing out the nightmare things of long ago you are invisible just a breeze on the land of others’ forgotten dreams seeking an illusive lion with golden mane and - never ending, you see reflections of you this being in the being of this single thing you deem noble unreachable you take time to fear and bow before holiness in the pools of magic
you see
through reflection stares back at you through shadow eyes alone, ancient and tired in sacred lakes of safe kept memories there is magic in your Shaman bones you will stir pools of love reflecting in the eyes of those who love you the forgotten stand by brooks and in the music of the life it took they run their minds like absent fingers through the fabric left
all becomes one open and telepathic
in stories of the once were you (LadyLabyrinth / 2021)

By any decent standard you are indeed a poet's poet. Your offerings exhibit great style, originality, creativity and depths that beg the reader to join in and seek out more and more. That quality, that enticing genius-- asks us - do we see, do we care, do we want--TRUE POETRY? Yes, yes we do my friend. Let thy pen its glory and bountiful harvest replant and reap, over and over again and again..

Never has such a marvelous new poem so stirred me, enchanted the invisible remnants of youth in my aged blood and fast fading dreams. There is the reality and the truth in those many deep and insightful verses! Such that creates awe and appreciation of the marvel that is called poetry. And the angel said, Wake thee to dream -to walk beyond the seas and dance upon the stars. " Et dixit angelus: Vigilate te ut somniant quam ambulare super aquas quoniam super stellas exultant lusibus."

Your poem making use of the two pieces of art by Friedrich, inspired the write. There are many excellent minds and writers in these pages Lindley, but you, out of all of them, must never stop the writing. Trust all well on the home front with your Queen and young Prince. I am sure you have read the Divine Comedy, it took me some time. A photographic artist friend of mine introduced the idea of reading the whole story in 2016. Excellent story to apply one's mind to.

The mind that sees, that understands , that hopes and celebrates in poetry awaits the open doorway into the golden realms of eternity. For Light , hope and dreams are keys that permits entry into infinity. Verses are seeds that await the planting, that bear the fruit mankind so needs. "Truth"- vilified by the dark world but the only pathway from this wicked abode. Your poem- a fav of all favs my dear friend. God bless you.

...are you speaking in code again Schmidt? You've imbibed too many sherbets, or a Neuroenhancer (not to be confused with New Romancer). I'll leave you to your Skinwalker Ranch and the monsters contained therein. Let us hope they are friendly.

Ah. Who doesn't love a good yarn? The invention of story telling was a big step for us. Well penned. Have a great night my friend.
