of Sparrows, Soot & Sand

αἰὼν παῖς ἐστι παίζων, πεττεύων· παιδὸς ἡ βασιληίη   

   

    ~♙~ 

sparrows call a song

      from the depths of their breasts

                    to the tune of aching morn

              as reverberating wind chimes sing along.

                         

                                              vapour laced whispers

                      born in pomegranate chambers

          shades of rose porcelain & succulent strawberry

  bursting from the vacant buds in expectation…

                       

echo’d swoons out of the woodlands

        riding on the coattails of lust steam’d mist                     

                          sweet jewels cocooned

under the spell of eager winged ethanol.

                       

fire erupting out of lyre strung alchemy

    ::    flight of the polar butterfly spirit    **

                        dual existence

                              of

ASYMmetrical discord bleeding in cacophonies.

    ~♙♙ ~

ivory tongues whip

cracking black bones 

..

ash heaps fall from lamps

onto soot stain’d silk clothes.

    in          *      out           

hades      *    halos     

thorny crucifixion fit for a king

starry serpent crown worn in sin

..

January flickers embers of the end

December burns beginnings anew

            for a shaman in full bloom

    ~♙♙♙~

unbound by a fate of being born too early

                                          or born too late

                                & without

              stepping in the same river twice

      time spreads across the divide

in a line untied or confined 

              //where// 

  tomorrow’s mind

              unwittingly provides psychic songs

in tongues which are yet to be deciphered

          though those symbols shine secrets

                              illuminating skies

                  with compass constellations

          stretching across oceans

& the sandy shores of time.αἰὼν παῖς ἐστι παίζων, πεττεύων· παιδὸς ἡ βασιληίη
