Wooden Tracks

Splintered wooden track, parched by blistered sun. Desert dusts its breeze, wilting weeds on run.   Carriage long departed; by foot, steps the heel. Searing sands scorch; waters bow in kneel.   Bones stare abandoned; skeletons line in pour. Luminous are the scars, betrayal sought to score.   Whistles hummed of blue, to echo barren […]

Lambs of Spring

Faithful fields of green, boasting rising flower. Natures preen of pride, triumphs winter’s shower.   The shepherd valley wakes, for tender rings the cry. Born into the flock; their mothers, they lean by.   Coats of woollen white; landscape they do flake. Soon the wobbles cease, as venture, they do take.   Warming chuckles soar; […]

Stranded Feet

Salted shores of grain, craft in marbles shade. Roving squawks of wild, jostle landscapes jade. Tranquil gusts of heart, flatter dunes with bow. Whisper of soft sands, swear allegiances vow. Torn wounds in fester; graze does knit on knee. Powerless to her peril; drowning lips of sea. Statue tides of stone, plunge their fears in […]

Two Bluebirds Flew

As gallant winds of wild, command among the sky. Dancing through the blades, two bluebirds soar to fly.   In sunlight, so does ruffle, gentle wings of feather. On wisp of floating cloud, they flutter, happy together.   With music soft in whistle; their chorus speaks rejoice. Sounding true affection, and love within their voice. […]

Dream Again

Upon the crease of oak, knots and kinks entwine. Rustic lock, held this chest, but opened now does find. Dreams of all assortments; ambitions towering high. Fantasies in make belief; no boundaries to comply. In rhythm senses thrust, with breaths of merry excite. Ensnarling, strike the colours, painting thoughts in bright. Immeasurable rule wishes, oh […]

Swansong February

Woodlands of nocturnal; abode for slumbers dwell. Veiled airs, crisp with ice, taint frozen with their smell.   Oppression of stark trees, in hardship, they persist. Robbed of blossoms dignity, but surrender, they’ll resist.   Prolonged, the war of skies, by threat of sombre shades. Beneath clouds hailing stone, does fall the glacier’s blade.   […]

Evolution

Climax of the dawn, ebb wounds of light. Forbidden entourage, seeks merit in night.   Practice in the arts, life of give and take. Leading final collapse, is mask, hid in fake.   Rebalanced is wreckage. Storms calmed in sight. Wings spring to jump, horizon takes its flight.   Regrets litter grave, haunted by abstain. […]

Inspire

Colourful characters, steeped in flaws. Passions ignited, emotions cut raw. Turbulence of will; locking of horns. Revolution sowed roots; fire was born. Anger played role, master of despair. Violence did taint vicious breathed air. Dreams ranged in scope, mighty and lame. Words cut and healed those they did name. Moments tripped live, volts did point. […]

If Life Was Easy

Strings tighten, the noose does grip. Its claws capture, the heart it has bit. Knockbacks grow harder with each new kick, as that feeling of disappointment, continues to stick.   How tear drenched eyes see world around, in fire, burn, does its flames of raw. The balance outweighed, tipped in pain, reeks of resentments nasty […]

Free Spirit

Bare foot, the leafy grass sinks beneath these toes. Gentle blows the winds, as summer shines in gold. The sound of nature’s birds, echo in the sky. Free I do move through lights twinkling eye.   To the rhythm, naked feet, dance by these sounds. Streams trickle past as laughter absorbs around. Caressing rays heat […]
