Color Me #SpeakPoetry

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2329345-color-me.mp3]

 

I gave you

A silhouette

A shadow of

A drawing of

The heart

That beats

Within me

To fill

Freely

To rend me

As you see me

And you

You

You color

Me deadly

In blacks

And greys

With no shade

Entirely

Abject

Of light

You paint me

As you see me

But you paint

Yourself

As well

For all I gave

Was a silhouette

An abstract

Portrait

For you

To fill

As you

And only you

Will

Lantern Light #fieryverse

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2329299-lantern-light.mp3]

 

A lost child

Enters his forest

Drawn on

By lantern light

By hope of warmth

She encounters

The devil himself

A beastly form

Worn and torn

Snarling

Alone

Timidly

She approaches

Extends a small

Soft hand

He twitches

Turns

His eyes flare

And burn

But the child

Does not shy away

She instead

Caresses

His pelt

Meets his gaze

Selflessly

Welcoming

Her death

In the

Lantern light

Of his eyes

 


Emerald Mystery #fieryverse

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2300049-emerald-mystery.mp3]

 

Kings and queens

Of the mounds

A mighty race

Lost underground

Shifting

Through

The history

Of the vast green

Velds of the Éire

The people

Of the Sidhe

Live on

Unfaded

From history

Forever sheathed

In emerald fire

In mystery

On the

Emerald Isle


Little Boat – #TercetThursday

[audio https://audioboo.fm/boos/2164866-little-boat.mp3]

 

Little boat caught in a whitecap of sea,

Swept from safety of harbor, hearth and home,

Cast out to the tempest, to drown in foam.

 

Violent the tides that crash down on thee.

Harsh the winds that so cruely tear your sails.

Little boat, no peace for you; storms prevail.

 

Each moment spent lost an eternity —

Each crest and crush and influx, a deluge,

Which tosses you further from sound refuge.

 

Bitter the waves that cast thou far from me,

As on my lonely shore I stand vigil.

My nightly observance, my ritual.

 

For you, little boat, crucial cargo bear:

My heart, my soul, my every prayer.

Return him to me, to my loving care…


#Haikuesday

Yesterday’s collection of haiku on Twitter. #haikuesday

 

1.

Dearest wind, my love

Blow your song again for me

Sweep me back to you

 

2.

Gentle breezes make

The trees shiver in pleasure

Warmth spreads to their roots

 

3.

The stream is giving

The river is a release

The ocean knows all

 

4.

A mountain born of

Shattered pieces of old stone

Each pebble matters

 

5.

Smoke rises, clearly

While fires hide from sight, beyond

The far horizon

 

6.

Fields of amber sigh

Soft rustling as they reach high

For the blue of sky

 

7.

Water seeks crevice

In stone to widen and own

Seeping deep in home

 

8.

Ever present soul,

Which guards and girds this world whole;

Oh trees, speak to me!

 

9.

Stone, water, ripples.

Susurrus of cool soft flow,

Lullaby of streams.

 

10.

Upthrust, molten rock

Scars as it creates the earth;

In fire, world’s rebirth.

 

11.

Clouds pass overhead

Soaring through the sea of sky

Misty submarines

 

12.

Black birds in black trees

Roosting upon burnt branches

Mourners of wild fire

 

13.

Life as we know it

Challenged constantly, for we

Know nothing really


In The Now – a Sonnet

The future enshrouded in shadow; unknown
The past beckons, singing its lost love songs
Lessons past, never right nor ever wrong
Lessons in our path may yet help us grow

Winds of chance and fate by which we are blown
To the past mistakes, to whom we belong
To our further estates for which we long
Souls cry for either side; Our love unsewn

In regards to future or past, alas
What is meant to be is still yet unseen
Whether we’ve learned, or still have much to do
Comes to each of us, comes to me and you
In each such moment, both exist in dreams
Our pieces, our memories come to pass

Thanks to Jack @for_my_Juliet for inspiring me to do a #SonnetSunday
Hope it’s up to snuff. ^__^

Written in the Petrarchan sonnet styling.


Timeless

A collection of micropoetry I wrote on Twitter, finally collected into one piece. Some additions, revisions, and corrections.

*********************

He was timeless
Strong and slightly severe
With the deepest, knowing eyes
At first glance, she knew
She was helpless

She was both dark and fair
Pale soft skin, smoldering hair
And a sorrow held within brown eyes
She caught his eye
He was ensnared

Her eyes met his
Both entranced
By one another
Both romanced
By each other
Two souls
Connected
Like this

To him she was the light
He was the light to her
Both shone onto each other
Into each other
Banishing the darkest night
As they fell
So did their shadows

They examined their fears
Soaked in their tears
Bathed with each other
In dark shared desires
Hungrily they fed the fires

While their pain they stroked
Their passions were evoked
In whispers and moans
And deep muffled groans
They lit up the world
They now shared

He and she
Held tightly
Sweet words exchanged
Lives rearranged
They fit and they bonded
Their love resounded

But even echoes fade

Burned too bright
In their endless night
Both left charred
And with new scars
Surprised by new seeping wounds
And fresh blood they’d wrung

They fought to rekindle
But love quickly dwindled
More strangers now
Than they’d been
When they’d met
Love so strong, now gone
They wept

Parting in tears
With newborn fears
Unsure of themselves
And their place
In the world
Now frightened
Of love unfurled
