Landmark

You hug my shoreline,
Waves gently lapping my soul
Until I give in.

Waters rushing over me
I suffer deluge’s touch.

Reprise

I stopped on the step and stooped to look at my feet. There was something afoot, but it wasn’t me.

A chill breeze caress,
A shiver for midsummer.
A kiss of winter
Walks in out of the moonlight
From no man’s land, takes my hand.

Shivering Tide

The shivering tide
Wanders across the dawn sands.
Leaving us alone,
Undisturbed amongst the dunes.
Our secrets to keep us warm.

Lights


The glow of the lights
Shines out across the water
Calling me back home.

In the chill winter twilight
All is dark except for you.

Skyline memory
Looking back, or looking in.
Yet, I’m lost once more
In the dusk of my mind,
In the wilderness, alone.

The breeze wakes the day.
Light shivers leaves on the trees.
While Dark’s servants bask
In lingering pools of night,
Before her veil’s cast aside.

A seductive dance
Betwixt the heavens and earth;
The moon and the sun.

Hill to Climb

Higher and higher,
The road is getting steeper.
As we make our way

Out of the lowlands in search
Of somewhere. That feels like home.

Believers

Modern life is like
A church, the religion
Electronica.

The prayer book, needs due reverence.
Wi-fi now the word of God.

Wildfire

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.
