EnchantedA golden apple tang
Heralds summer's brightest fire
But I prefer to amble in
In the darkest corners
There are no haunted whispers
And only caramel shadows
Transfer daylight's memories
For unto me the stars
Snapping leaves leading moonlight
Are not my coldest lonely hour
But a renewal of soul
Other FishThere are other fish
In the sea, but none of them
Is the fish for me.
I've cast a long wish
Over tree, branching stream's stem,
Bait from creek shady.
Lure will flick and swish
With some glee, and stratagem
Hooks fishing trophy.
So those other fish
In the sea, compare not them
To my fish in stream.
StandI was a monument
Upon a sherbet horizon,
Pooled like oil
On pocked granite cheeks.
MollyMayhap she sports a biting smile
Or barks warning with lively style
Long and far she will wander in
Lope grassy paths to find therein
Your pride brought to safety's isle
Night TerrorsI danced in the dark
With a night owl's screams
And mosquito dreams,
And then when I fell
Where nobody's arms
Would latch onto me,
Down upon my knees,
I felt Moonlight's beams
Cut like diamonds.
On the Run (writing practice/teaser)I wasn't really looking for a fight that afternoon. I'm a semi-professional amateur acquisitions agent. That's a really nice way of saying I steal things for a living and sometimes I even get paid for it. This was supposed to be a quick in-and-out job that would have left me enough time to go get a manicure and maybe hit the Godiva store at the mall for my monthly free truffle. Instead, I now had two broken nails and was running down an litter-strewn alley at full tilt. Behind me, there was a lot of cursing and growling which probably had something to do with the trash cans I had just heaved at my pursuers. I chanced a quick look back and didn't like what I saw. Two weres had grown to four and they were hurdling the cans like track stars at the Olympics.
"Bad news, Amira, you're about to hit a wall, a brick one specifically."
I scowled at the tiny dragonling. Rox was only the size of my longest finger with fluttery leathery wings dusted with fine fur. He was currently spor
Caught"Will you catch me?"
She, too far hooked on the dark,
Shattered stardust glittering,
Oh, her finest whiskey smile,
A tawny constellation.
"Please fall with me."
He, flaring winsome too bright,
Heaven's starlight exploding,
Oh, his sweetest brewing laugh,
"We're alone now."
They, blind persistent stumbling,
Drenched in silky oaken spice,
Oh, their spirited iced rocks,
Reaching away from cosmos.
On My KneesIt was quite comical, can't you see,
How much of your bullshit I believed,
Or really not, I played along;
I got so sick of the same damn song.
It not at all dawned like light on me -
Another might find me on my knees.
I wasn't inclined so I never saw,
Until I was; next, he came to call.
A thunderous boom and you left me;
I have had enough this time, stay free!
Lightning struck and brought my Devil Dog,
Quicksilver chemistry, no more fog.
I had forgotten how to be
Purely submissive on my knees
Head arched in laughter with a smile;
I missed this place, been quite a while.
Each day rewards, he turns a key,
Reopens doors I didn't foresee
Could be unlocked or topple walls;
Safe in my Dog's hug, I am small.
I flung that ache into the sea;
I shed last drops of misery;
At last I opened up my heart
To a Devil Dog, a fresh start.
You did me a favor, so you see,
By turning your back and leaving me,
Secret, slowly killing a whole love,
Until there's nothing more to speak of.
Friendship kindles, fo
One tear... dearly spent. (Act-I)
I see their faces, they, the unloved ones, dry eyes, no smiles, just a stark and desperate gaze, bereaved of care, hope, love.
Each little face gazing bleakly on through the fractured glass of a picture frame, but not at me...
I lay it down, gently. For I'll find no comfort in it, only remnant shards of a forgotten memory, one soon to pass with me long into the halls of eternity.
This the equal sum of all my years. One just memory, fare earned, bought at a fair price, one of ill deeds and a blackened soul.
I feel pain, for myself, for this world, for the last time. Also fear, so real to me now, that he, this dark loathsome one, would leave me behind.
Unwanted as unworthy, to remain here, a fool in purgatory.
The cold now grips me as if embraced by it, just as a mother would an inconsolable child.
I look into the deepest dark, and ask him. "What is Hell like?" He took no notice, and ask me for the time.
But his question went unanswered, for the
PetrichorI walk without an errand for the mind.
I must be homeless.
Neighboring enclaves separate our spaces,
belie their builders’ mirthless exhaustion.
Not even necessity can be blamed
for these mud-struck, brittle gourds,
these quick nests of vasculous organs
pulsing with their peculiar tyrannies,
briefly scuttling from their hovels
like sun refugees
darting into gleaming storefronts
waffled in concrete misery
all to forestall the end of their souls.
Where can we go when we only want to breathe?
Sitting in a park bench,
trillion-visioned, crowned with galaxies,
I can rest my weary invention.
I sense the weight of an unseen player,
a secret stratagem
as she moves her piece into the glade.
I’m set in place, yet unopposed.
Uncombined with lovers, children,
the slow parade of trees and heat,
I lay beside these stalwarts,
at once, still and hurtling
throughout the travesty of time.
I assemble a cumulus intelligence
near the playground,
threatening Summer with three days
Desperate for YouDay by day
Block by block
Tree by tree
Tear by tear
Day by day
Trials and temptation at my door
As the grass grows in the world
My soul being put to the test
Day by day
Every hour and every second
Realizes that I am desperate for the Lord
For the Lord to hold me from falling
Lord, I'm desperate for You
My heart tears and wears from a lack of Your wisdom
I thirst and hunger for You
Lord, You hear my cries and You know that I am desperate for more of You
Lord, You are the only who fills my lungs with air
Lord, You are the only that speaks words into my mouth
Lord, You are the only one that makes my heart beat louder than drums
I'm desperate for more of You; Lord, I'm desperate for You
Teach me Lord to worship You with all that I am on my knees
To depend on You and have Your way in every part of my life
Lord, I am desperate for more of Your love
Lord, I am desperate for more of You in my life
You are the only one that will last forever
You are the only one that will love forever
You are t
Damaris: Foreign GodWhat is this message that you bring,
what is this "good news" that you preach?
Who is this strange God from afar -
and what should it matter to me?
We are Greeks - we have our gods,
more gods than you.
What's a foreign god to me?
Your story's nice -
but what's it to me?
But you say
was always there,
even when I did not see Him.
has always cared
for all the world
even though we did not know it -
for this God
is the creator
and all mankind is his -
is the sustainer,
who provides for all that is.
This is no foreign God
but the one true God of all -
and that's why it matters to me.
is the one who made me.
is the one who knew me
before I even knew myself.
cares not only for one people -
for all the peoples on earth are His.
In Him we live,
in Him we move,
in Him we have our being -
is the true God

kastepisara kielon luomessa
peitteesi lehden suojassa
heräsit unestamme aamuun
in a dream,
a dewdrop on a petal
in the shadow of your leaves
you awoke from our dream
a new morning
your tears and i to mist;
yesterday to oblivion.
Soul of fire;
Yet always the same.
Shall I write to thee
On this hot summer day,
While I wait for the paint to dry?
Who so many fear and loathe
To the very last day that they live.
Who so effortlessly stole my heart
Before I knew I had one to give.
Parent of monsters;
A term so subjective,
As you and I know
So very well.
Shall you smile again
In the face of adversity,
And every wound and weakness belie?
As you do,
By telling naught but truth.
As you must,
To frail sensitivities soothe.
You are not,
Though you'll pretend to it
You can be,
Upon no terms but your own,
Free and untameable spirit;
You belong to none
Yet, for better or worse,
To any and everyone else.
Psychedelia Dementia.Yellow night,
this alien world is so bright,
there is no darkness here only glorious light.
The grass is red and gold,
and the trees are shades of purple,
I feel this world is old,
in the distant there are mountains of silver and marble.
With every breath I take,
with an easy pace I make,
every step takes me closer to a lake,
am I dreaming or am I awake?
The lake is liquid glass,
sparkling crystalline gas,
lightning trapped underneath,
beats with a rhythm of a heart!
And as I draw closer,
I hear the music of this world,
I feel it's taking me over,
suddenly the surroundings whirled.
I look up to a familiar sky,
blackness of space greets me,
something inside me feels hollow and all I want to do is cry,
if I close my eyes forever then maybe I can come back and see.
The absense of colour drives me insane,
this place is too plain,
I must find a way to go back and stay forever,
and I don't want to leave ever.
PurposeFuturistic elements of produce and will
Define the rationality of wisdom and skill
Greatness transforms out of the might in understanding
Conducting with love, truth and commanding
Time dictates the depth of exposure
And ruptures the walls of insightful enclosure
Within is the key to open your heart
Uniting each piece in equal part
Messages are received in moments of glory
Bringing treasures and gifts embodied in story
Yesterday's thoughts hinder space
Wisdom comes through in faithful grace
"Knowing that it is not who you are
Sheds the wound revealing a scar
You are a star
With unlimited potential to raise the bar"
Harmony brought through balance of kin
Sharing in fears the healing begins
Concentration a strength to shift roads
Fighting for rights and releasing loads
Allowing for acceptance from others
Our friends our fathers, our beloved mothers
Will fill cups and fire homes
Reaching over and under and arriving at thrones
Destiny is in the making of men
