a day of dark rain

a foreboding sound

          echoes in a thunderstorm....

                   mourners at a grave
                   a torrent of rain

           muffles the sound of crying....

watching crows scatter

one wet crow hunches

          on branch of the brittle oak....

                  dark clouds hover low

    ~           ~             ~               ~

dark whispers

                                          dark whispers took shape
                                         shadowy mortuary chamber
                                              footsteps died away

Sincerity of Slumber

The uncluttered mind ...
Thus, are dreams the children of,
Nightmares, its bastards.

Midnight Feathers

~Midnight Feathers~

plume after plume
stuck in my heart
your eyes, deep as dark

morning lust
goosebumps in the afternoon
midnight smoke

plume after plume
plucked from  my heart
together we feather

Constant Dark Rain, Sturzregen, Aguacero

Pouring from leaden clouds
Flooding houses and gardens
A constant dark rain

Aus bleiernen Wolken
Flut in Häusern und Gärten
Endloser Sturzregen

De nubes plomizas
Inundando casas y jardines
Continuo aguacero

A Little Reflection

The notorious gang
Clearly stated in the news
Is now declared Saint

And a pretty slut
Infamous to everyone
Is now called Mary

This political thug
Who attacked lives' belongings
Is now made the judge

In a time like this
Where vices are made virtues 
What's that all about

Dead carcasses are buried
Loved ones mourn
