Hide and Seek

Woodlands pulsate a pastel euphony, storm lingers in repose,                            a threat disguised   by prismatic hues of charged particles meant to disarm me.   I’m partial to sunset…

Vanished

Silence saturates            the old footpath                      that brought                                  them to me.                                   …

Redshift

My mind takes flight and I trespass the boundaries of redshift galaxies, light speed jumps blending with stardust                      to shield my wings                    from a reentry burn.  …

City Winds

I’ve never heard a nightingale sing, but I know where blue bees hide—not in this metropolis. City winds do not speak to me like they do in the forest, only tearless …

Hourglass

I am a shadow walker  of the ancient ways—I have no beginning,  nor shall I end. By Earth I was risen, though Sun sets  me free, and Moon  rains stars into my eyes. Wind carries my…

Anecdotally

I cerebrate on patterns of human presence, but having soared the thirty-two winds over twenty thousand daybreaks, I cannot reason with air poisoning my lungs and chemicals slowly eating my eyes,…

Laughing

You think                             you know me,         grasping at                    my nothingness,   it’s all that  …

Narratives

We shared familiar spaces, ritualistic clusters converging on weekend specials where earthy aromas provoked our palate sensibilities,   nudging each other for a closer peek at open market delicacies, manners…

I Dared

my hundred years               never seemed               a likely script,   being home                                 means I live        or die another                   sleepless night   on the streets—                 …

Footprints

Long ago dream, perhaps a spatial vision, I stood before this door. No footprints in or out, the destiny never traveled—my reprieve from a muted void.   Repetitions of myself…

Cleverness

nature sees                                 only weakness         in our                   self-indulgent   cleverness,                                  vacant thoughts         strewn                    across parched   landscapes                                  where a child’s         mind once                   …

Amused

Ripples on  water scarcely  visible beneath  glistening  sunlight.    Hushed meditations,  flickers of wisdom in starless midnights within our mind.   Trepidations over fading flowers and disappeared  rivers—why we’d be born just  to…

Mesmeric

Siren’s melody                                 conjures a         half moon                     gale.    Mesmeric                                 chants lure         my soul,                      awakened at   daybreak on                                 pretersensual         shores.                                          …
