Time to come down from the stars,

The celestial seas that span the two temples,

To stop reflecting upon beauty and enchantments

And instead, to face one’s ugly reality and learn;

Time to deaden this heavy heart

That once used to sing and mystify, pulsing,

Swooning into a thousand symphonies.

It could rage the oceans into war,

And stir the dawn to wake. Continue reading

In heaven, in time long forgot

Was a soul that longed for bliss.

The eternity of Love, Peace and the Joy of Total Existence.

In the ever shrouding room

I stand, staring, motionless

Through the wide glass

Gazing, wonderingly at the

Awesome skies, expanding.

Swirls of atmospheric

Blue amidst blue, baffling

Tints and hues

Pound into the other as the night

Dawns the sky. Continue reading

Dialogue Poem Set 3: On Love

 

A dialogue there once was, on love,

‘Tween Ashen Cloak and

Robe Turquoise

(And all the while observers peer,

Such as Blue Hemp Tunic,

Black Bomber Jacket,)

With words to thought arise

(And all the while observers peer,

Such as White Thawb

And Earth N Parka Coat,)

And all the while observers peer.

But with words, were meanings all unclear?
