Leaves remnants of genius, still.

Where wines could really come to age;
And gods among the people dwelled,
In works...

Clouds unite
they end all fight

the bride with no veil
to see with no eyes
why do we despise
as the world does turn
our minds they do churn

Seeker seeks:
Places to visit,
Fragrant peaks;
Can wIt fit?

Query quotes:
Spaces to sojourn 
Random rote;
Can voice churn?

Charming writes:

Moments cite;
Can touch stage?

Window ledge song
Stray sparrows sing;
A choral duo


Rain drops slide
Blurry window view;
Furious stormy night

Passing people punctuate


Coffee maker sounds

Caffeine fix retort
