Echo

IMG_0144

the child’s laugh

fills the world

with golden sunshine

a thousand delicate melodies

glitter in gasps of breath

pure syllables

of finely spun mornings

rising in summer skies

drifting into lavender

fading into violet

falling into darkness

until only a lingering echo

remains

The Last Sunrise

IMG_0056

A fireless sun ascends beyond a deserted continent

 

darkness extinguishing the echoes of The Last Sunrise

 

We listen to the resonance of a forgotten cold

 

creep over the edges of our new horizon

 

You observe with splintered thought

 

and breathless, frozen prayer

 

an empty hand placed over your empty heart

 

She shivers in speechless fear

 

her bloodless veins pulsing in broken memories

 

He cries in unearthly whispers

 

that swirl into the desolate atmosphere

 

I move past vacant miracles in spirals of fading heat

 

lacing warmth into the cloudless winter landscape

 

We are speechless in a morning of dense charcoal

 

Our voices lost in the darkness of The Last Sunrise


Snow

IMG_0149

A blue child listens

to the whispers of withering winter

as indigo skies drip from a canvas of shattered hope

the child is born with empty eyes that cradle

the teardrops of an ancient nightmare

his features fading in the endless blue of a forest lost at sea

gnarled midnight branches and dusty stems of charcoal

sway in dreaming starlight and sleeping planets

ashen words tumble from a grey horizon

and fall onto his frozen face

silently splintering into soft snow

Sightless

IMG_0061

Look past sightlessness.

Past skin.

Past oceans.

Past eyes.

Past the golden parallels of pattern.

Past the fireless Sun.

Past the foreboding of impeding future.

 

Reach out.

Breathe.

Touch.

 

Close your eyes and welcome the absence of light.

Close your eyes and listen to the heartbeat of a distant soul.

Close your eyes and taste the moments of a different time.

 

Where are you?

Look past the colors, the

explosions of sunset

the precision of a blue sky

keep running through mountains

through arid countries, and raging hurricanes

 

Where are you?

 

Look past the weightless fire

the endless walls that surround

every foreign continent

Past the frozen landscapes

of a thousand winters

 

Where are you?

Mortal

IMG_0138

In a mortal eclipse

soft twilight melts

into hazy violet

as foreign planets

rise in dreams

and gentle wind stirs

the cosmos.

The silent crackle

of scarlet stars

waking in breaths

of ascending flames.

Souls drift

in the hypnotic gaze

of the mortal eclipse

and everything waits

for The Unknown.

Blue

IMG_0132

Were you a blue child,

chasing pastel clouds

in indigo evenings

and humming melodies

of midnight?

 

Were you a blue child,

watching changing comets,

and flowers bloom like

shattering stars?

 

Were you a blue child,

listening to dying summers

fade in grey rain

and crying

through the teardrops

of melting glaciers?

 

Were you a blue child,

thinking in moments

of tangled sapphire

and swimming

in splintered moonlight?

 

Were you a blue child,

full of broken skies,

and dreams of hollow oceans?

Eyes of a Broken Soul

IMG_0046

The eyes of a broken soul watch

In her dark curls

A headband of nightmares glitters

thousands of wilting flowers

Twisting

Turning

Like splintered snowflakes

they drift in empty sounds

 

The eyes of broken soul wait

Her presence

an anxious shadow

that whispers darkness

into vacant atmospheres

 

The eyes of a broken soul yearn

a velvet cry that creeps from the corners

of an ancient dream

Thick fog moving from dead winters

Fractured stardust gathering

on soft, pallid hands

 

The eyes of a broken soul hunger

for stolen sweetness

melting between shattered lips

diamond skin and jasmine bones

When You Cried

IMG_0174

When you cried

The world cried.

Swollen oceans consumed

the decaying flames of decaying souls

Land fell in steep slopes

and mountains rose in frozen sounds

Winters swirled in thick screams in thick nights

a thousand full moons

shattered in empty Skies

and empty lights fell from empty dreams

Distorted thoughts filled distorted atmospheres

moonlight danced in black seas

and sunlight drowned in pale faces

and pale fingers drowned in black nightmares

when you cried the world cried too.

Ascending

IMG_0050

Pallid mountains surface

from the depths of silver oceans

Colorless rainbows blur in pieces

of faded skies

a haze of lilac blankets the planet

hidden from the ozone

Crescent moons stand still

And frozen stars wait

A Black Sun shimmers

rippling the Shadow World

The girl of yellow ashes

Drifting between memories

Of a golden sky

Listens as charcoal forests rise

And Shadows ascend to the ozone
