LP No. 18_2021_sunset reflections

Look!
a silhouette of the wonderous setting sky!
glowing remnants of such flaming majesty!

Astounding!

Magnificent!

Luminous!

mere reflections of Beauty,
and all i may behold.

memories
of past brilliance, frozen
in detail spectacular,
fill the tomes
stacked in this
cavernous soul,
but
there is no light to see:

the torch
having been extinguished
by me.

so i dream in shadow,
and play in between
what was
and never could be.

LP No. 05_2021_One

without pause or
doubt,
or fear of what may,
i pull
inexorably
to you.

the threads
of my life,
between nimble fingers,
tangled and knotted-
but we,
so far from besotted.

no way but up,
to fall into open arms.

no way but down,
to where we belong.

no way,
but the way
we forgot.

one path
to
a Love
destined.

one fall
to an
Oblivion
guaranteed.

one soul,
afire with hope &
purpose &
love.

LP No. 01_2021_ Hidden

Shrouded


in the brilliant
preponderance
of the coming storm,



and
ensconced
in swirling mists
of ether,
magics,
and assorted devilry,

Destiny calls out,
desperately


yearning for your touch.





Do you
hear her?





Do you want to?




or would you rather slip
back
into sweet angelic
dreams of beauty
and love?






hidden away in vaults of eternal treasure,
She waits for your embrace.





Will you answer?
or simply wither away?

Epilogue/Prologue (and the stuff in between too)

underneath, and
between the rapturous birdsong,


and


hovering over every golden burst
of dawn,

lies
Fear,

greedily waiting
to devour your flame.

waiting
to sap your pleasure

waiting
for your fall.

Except,
the beauty of nightingale’s sorrow,
and
the blinding glory of our favorite star
lifts true believers
above the pesky threats of love.

so,
my cumbersome angel,
come,
glide
on winds untold,
and let us,
together, fall
eternal
