Regret

of your hair...

Tavira is my town
The place I call my home
Rich in history
Much like me
Many secrets does it hold
Ancient times still apparent
Different people now
A different time

How many footsteps have trodden the cobbled streets?

Isolated desolates
Wrapped in spikes
Fluted aqua Greys

Wasteland, gravel.....................
The fluted barrels......................
They shrink in dry......................

in the firmaments
to the unknown child 

a well known secret

a hood by night...

"Gospels"

 

Gospels are lost on a god

Poets caress swords
a legend firm in their hearts

and target, practice

to fall on love
