Let it flow I

 
 
 
 
A long and twisty journey
to find me where I started
and learn I never departed at all…
 
 
Half a Page of Scribbled Lines
 
Stone cottage, mythical forest.
Magical fireplace flickers stories.
Giants and dwarves, quests and sorties.
Forces ancient yet virile and free.
Luminescent sprites cast nets aglow,
gently float, flit
betwixt, between.
 
Realities Doorway
 
Zombie-like stagger,
subliminally aware of
omnipresent, unobtrusive
psychic feelers.
Surveillance sweep.
Data bombardment.
Brain shakes with malevolent intent.
Tiny spinal fractures emit
memory, reason, the capacity to love.
 
 
I am free to wander
all the wealth of stories that
could ever be,
choose the ones
to steep in, retell myself
as sleepy morning
soliloquy.
Psyche’s numinous doorway stands open.
Gentle blue heaven surrounds
my little house, imbues, secures.
Luscious landscape, gorgeous, bountiful.
Soft-shaded bubbles effervesce,
proclaim enchantment.
Voyages.
Initiate’s siren call
sea-washed
sun-warmed.
Magnificent peaks manifest,
clothed by sparkling
sediment.
Aloft, alone, I gasp in awe.
Anytime you ask
I will gladly
express,
extend pleasure with my stories.
Just outside my doorway
always eternities more.
 
 
 
 
dweller on the threshold
 
 
Ivy dense,
tangly generations,
encircles.  Insulation.
Mortared brick, aged,
silent lamentation
for days that never can return.
 
Inspired by anger
coursing through my blood-brain barrier,
by symphonies of guilt and shame
by dismal morality tableaux
glimpsed in roving eyes,
by gagged and chained
liminal desires,
by sacrificial warriors
who cope with more
than could be required
and the songs my silent ear demands I hear.
 
Collar up against bleak wind and dark.
Rising smoke creates warmth illusion.
Wrapped in sanity’s delusion,
fog’s memory of mist, imagined tide.
Seated here, salt-etched wall
alone between vast sand and
murmuring waves.
No one sings.
The notes, the voices
appear
 
 
 
Silence
 
 
We who are silent
tongues clamped to grindstone,
throats clinched like forever grief
caught, pinned, suspended in lethal cloud.
We would cry out
send forth aureoles of potent speech
to assuage, to persuade to desist,
if voice permitted.
Abraded to dust, clinging to glints and shards,
bare breath escapes without
resistance,
silent
but for that shimmer, that subliminal
growl
