Ghost Ship

Are we as a ghost ship
 Upon an endless sea
Setting sail for nowhere
 To arrive eternally

Are we as the shifting winds
 That touch upon the sands
Ever changing in our course 
 Sculpting out the lands

Are we as the stars above
 That shine unendingly
Are we as a ghost ship
 Upon an endless sea

The Poem Of My Soul

Aurum skies of morning
 Awaken in these eyes
Bright golden gleams
 Where ever streams
The poem of my soul

Silver beams of starlight
 Reach within this dream
Embrace with hands
 Of silken strands
The poem of my soul

Then give me wings of nebulae
 Wrought from saturn's rings
Enchant my flight
 That I may write
The poem of my soul

Chemical Spill Water Bug

Her dance within orbs of willowy spin offs
 Circle ballet striking glaze of a mirror flake
All absent a madness
 The victorious pallors of flame sword invading her once virgin shore

Etherium

ETHERIUM
©David Arthur

I ponder long, pained eyes upon
 Ice silent yesterdays
Mere memories beloved Louise
 Cannot my loss allay

An ocean is my love, but not enough for you
 Whose grace precedes lithe mystic steeds
The winged gods of lore

I wander on, bemused, withdrawn
 In weary, wayward ways
In dreary, dotard ways
A pious mermidon

Forever is my love not long enough for you
 My eternal spirit draws its neverending breath for you

All earthly will, dead quiet, still
 A shade bemoans by day
And dark of night yields not respite
 For grief that has no stay

A poem is my love yet not enough for you
 Whose soul sublime
Stirs nobler rhyme
 From bard's supernal shore
