FIRST MOVEMENT (Minor Key)

Times such as these test body soul and mind
So should our thoughts be pain and dark confined
Or loosed to concentrate on brighter things
Like furry puppies, flowers and girls on swings

In this bright...

Lockdown
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,
They’re boring and predictable,
I need stimulus, tried and true.

That lazy dog...

Darkness enfolded me in an ebony blanket
Of soft nocturnal feelings, whispers of wisdom
Shading my world with blackest reminiscences
Gentle insights into reflections of a promise
Phenomenal grace captivating my senses

As the night envelops me in it’s shroud...

the epoch, the epopee, the eternity
When a precedent-busting pandemic is palling around the world 
when its concomitant panic and pain freak out
it is your fine figures that are unflinchingly unfurled
e'en as proctective gears barely eke out.

Isolation wards owe you diligence...

Ashes Might Go Down Easier
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 the deepest, lusty scarlet –

black and white would be a...

WINTER HUES
Drinking morning dews from grass; sun looks healthy,
Housing red yellow rays, sky looks lovely and pretty.

Mountain stands strong wearing deep green garment,
Within white Kans grasses, river looks lovely at its best.

With blessing of winter; trees...

Dream of Creation
She was asleep
but her gaze dragged above, 
and a shadow was drawn with them


she let him make night


swathing her in darkness
planting nebula in sockets,
he watched galaxies grow 
as a yawning black hole 
revealed destiny


he made...

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 paint as brushes
Traces, the wildflower’s presence
Lying silent among the daffodils

Fine...

Beneath Death's Dark Veil
Wednesday, October 31, 2012
--------------------------------------

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 beneath the remains
Salty tears pierce the bloodless veins
Hiding the lies...

Broken Tongues and Laryngitis
Shouldering songs from the birth to the rhyme
of emotion, spring silver and burgundy 'spires
Slipping your words in a tragedy roll
tumbling and tumbling sweet in my mouth
Parching the lips from the birth to the hip
of elation,...

As each fatigued day culls my nature

Severed from earths comely breast

Fair mumsy, she knows best

Blue sky turning cobalt
Black cloak in the wind
A skeletal shape
Looking for the innocents sins

Ravens above
In frantic flight
Their master they chase
Decrepit delight

Scythe in swipe
Cutting and swathing
All before him
Bloodied craving

The sands of time
Around his waist
In timely pursuit

How close is close enough for endearment 
What if the caress begins from within
Explosive bliss defying containment 
Endless thunderous climax ignition

A living flame, called the staff of power
Outpouring magnetic heat toroidal

Beautiful Tonight
Tonight,
Shadows are like,
A veil of calmness,
Swathing the mind,
A peaceful aura,
The knots untwined.

Palpable darkness,
Stroking the skin,
Almost too passionately,
We’re akin.

Flows the tender breeze,
Ushering the spirit,
Drifting it away,
The heart is then,
Free of any fray.

Sweet air gushes in, 
So...
