Black cloak in the wind
A skeletal shape
Looking for the innocents sins

Their master they chase
Decrepit delight

Scythe in swipe
Cutting and swathing

Within white Kans grasses,...

A full moon 
Swathing white light
The illuminating ethereal fire

Once in a while -in a moment 

of immense sulfurous clarity, when 

every grace I locked in my dilated pupils

begins to form lesions, yellow-running

tears through...

Beneath Death's Dark Veil

--------------------------------------

A careless Swathing of Death's face- pale
Burn the images and erase the memories
Bury the lies beneath Death's dark veil

Dig deep- finding secrets...

A veil of calmness,
Swathing the mind,
A peaceful aura,
The knots untwined.

Ushering the spirit,
Drifting it away,
The...

Into one hive, into one honeycomb

A Sleeping Silhouette
Earliest of the morning light
peers its silly little smiles
Peeking through shades and sills

Swathing ambience surrounds
Sketching out a silhouette
Sleeping contours satin covered still

Gentle touches, my fingertips...

We can’t go out so what to do?
How do we spend our time?
Imagination, racing thoughts
My brain on overtime.

There’s gardening, painting, DIY
Non urgent jobs to do,
