Riptide wilderness

Lunar swimming in angry cerulean torrents
swiftly as primeval passing of blue equinox
sea-born of indomitable nautical command
to envelop cloaked within mother the ocean

Remembering in-utero wild amniotic hunger
I dive deep submerged inside Poseidon's lair
Senses burning alive tribal inebriated oxygen
embryonic aquatic kingdom, vibrancy revealed

Strong, steady, maritime language fathered 
techniques of stout heartedness hold strong & fast
as I scan deep the watery sapphire horizon
multitudes of planktonic organisms weave dancing

The harrowing, drowning sailors sinking titanic ship's
watery struggles plunging to Davey Jones locker
obeisance to the kingdom the fisherman warned
no safety or surprise for the iconoclastic swimmer

Submarine amygdala hijack tsunami unfolding
losing myself to wave patterns monstrous in my brain
luminescent molecules reverberate to my touch
Gliding through hidden cephalopod realms

Spiralling up microscopic kelp-laden kingdoms
I rise to kiss the air with salt-water gasping
This holiest oceanic communion does heal
all my riptide scars, delivered within lands prison

Sun halo lakes

Sun spots blotting out the clouds lazy lakes pass the day
 us four buccaneers smoking through reeds swimming
 Melancholia of past raves disappear heat drenched haze
 footwear absent psychedelic conversations to shift a score

 Musky wisp’s fade into hop laced carbonated green bottles
 as Dragonfly’s complete their long transformed ascent to reveal
 Armed Tension all time low work stress fluctuations evaporated
 calm before storm always this way lost in heady multicolour days

 Violent displays rugged refined to deliver vibrant tribal dancing
 posing no threat languid smiles lost degenerates forgotten youth
 Discordant echoes thrum Volkswagen petroleum discharges
 duck tailed passing sharing is caring for the doe-eyed lost and weary

Crush

I’m not writing this for you, silent intemperate witness
 the same rain paints your canvas but lifeless
 self neurosis constricts and binds rainbows
 from adorning walls of crashing acidic lies
 Honesty laced with empathy, is it that hard?

 Crushing waves of apotheosis, honour and kin
 the only traits noble of hominine sacrifice
 left on broken blood soaked shores of lassitude
 The web glues all whether you like it or not
 lighting up every cell to stimulate interior growth

 Reawaken to the facts and reconnect, everything is waiting
 opposite the shores of occupation and self-immolation

Death bloom

Life roars colours red
Death reborn to start anew
Phoenix rising blooms

The wild fades blue

Fading deepest blue
cherry blossom storm falling
cleansing deepest wounds

Wind blows crystal rain
rain cascades carless droplets
garden bloom sweet jade

Stillness sharpens blade
mountains fade magenta skies
seas swell angry waves

Ameagari no mori

Ashen branches fall
Rain dashes the jade willow
Cranes fly swift to cloud
