Sets the sun ablaze,
Igniting the fire within.
Passion threatens
To overflow. As the muse
Takes hold and won’t let me go.

Possibility ~ a tanka

Possibility;

New challenges calling me

To the horizon.

Burning passion, starts to spark.

Like the phoenix I will fly.

Two Pieces

Promises and tears,
You cannot have one
Without the other.
Because what is a heart for
Other than to break into two.

I’ll never get to heaven
While I’m happy reclining
In this subtle web,

This gossamer moment,
Forever with you.

Otherways

I travelled the world
But I missed the sights and signs
Outside the window.

Closed my eyes, looked away
And never went back again.

Wildfire

Day 22 – and it’s cold enough for a fire…

Made of sticks and stones

Sets the sun ablaze,
Igniting the fire within.
Passion threatens
To overflow. As the muse
Takes hold and won’t let me go.

Sleepless Nights …

I’ve a memory
Foam mattress that just
Wants to forget –

But with time your imprint
Just gets deeper and deeper.

Nature to me
Is a badger, dead at the
Roadside. Stomach burst
Maggots writhing, feeding
On its rotting remains.

Fragments

The broken skylight
Distorts the view of fractures
Inside the raindrops,

A momentary rainbow
Disappears between the cracks.

Barriers

Are you going to
Tear me apart, eat me up,
Strip flesh from my bones.

You’re in me. Will you destroy
Or just dare me to love you?
