Soul's ode is forged, behold!

Adrift every spirit's mold.

with a deadly perfume.
Nostrils flicker and consume
scented ghosts haunting the room....

Liquid gold, limpid glows,
Gilds lank skies in godlike pose,
Dispels grief and human woes.

Harsh life etched into burning eyes
Yet tenderness turned wood
In delicate designs declaring devotion.

About a love went wrong
When two hearts hid for so long...
Now I hear the requiem's gong...

An Elgyn
Shielded, his logic affects distrust - chill resolve
Mine scatters like dust, dissolves
His lust for my mind absolves
Allows this love to evolve....

The fabulous red kite - broad wings, mighty,
Built to soar, beauteous sight !
Red tail forked, in rooftop flight,
Silently swoops for the fight.

unless He's taken your sin
and then true life can begin.

The Young Farmer
He plows his harrowed fields—visions grand!
Lushly, planned, large yeilds;
Bugs frantically seeking shields
As farmers plant the hayfields.
