Heeding the veiled call…

We hunted the winds and quartered them, Dutifully placing them at the edges of Our darkened peripheries, Marking an approximate end To every course we Had ever hoped to surmount. With irregular bursts of passion We ignited flares to Illuminate the history of Many a journey lost, Only to dissipate back into Hazy embarkations, Blurred shorelines And muffled soundings.

Light: An Elegy

A light shimmers in the fore, Joined by the hand Of song and rhythm And lambent dances Along a moonlit creek in repose. What does it see Beyond this specter Of jaded spirits And world-weary migrations To parts hitherto untold That beckons its uncompromising smile? From whence does its melody arise That it traverses so calmly Through dimensions and landscapes Hitherto unseen? When will a world Left in silent agony Learn its dance And free itself from These wind

Here…

Here, Cosmic distances Have kissed their limits Hello and goodbye. And ‘ere the moment They are at last embowered By these watchful arms A keeper emerges in the offing Without a word, Speaking only with compassionate hands That toil ceaselessly in iridescent shadows Cast by a remote awareness Of where the smallest path once lay bare, Dutifully awaiting a chance at perfection.

Autumn resides here…

Autumn resides here, Beginning just around the bend, Emanating from errant leaflets And contrite winds. Art: “Autumn on the Seine at Argenteuil” Claude Monet #art #AutumnontheSeineatArgenteuil #poetry #Monet #poem #impressionism #NaturePoem

As the winds subsist…

As the winds subsist, as the horizon broods, a faint luminosity guides us along ever-shifting and inconstant paths, nocturnal awakenings and re-awakenings, successive alignments across avenues both well-worn and forgotten in time, alien dream-like tableaux reified into vaguely-familiar vignettes of journeys past.

Engulf me, O winter’s yawn

Engulf me, O winter’s yawn With your gleams of evanescent glory. Immobilize me in your infinite knowing, And tell me your story. If you find me astray, Bear me up with haste. Reveal to me the end of self, Through stones your precipitation graced. Take me through endless mirrored corridors, Where the howl of legends echo each season. Remember their fables when ages apart, Until I find, in your breath, my reason. Art: “Village in the Snow” Claude Monet #art #painting
