Timing

This isn't the optimum time...
Not to tell you
Not while the world is spinning this direction
Certainly not for me

But baser urges...
Will not be denied
Cannot be cullified
Have no chance to the change the wind

What was started here...
Cannot be undone
Won't be on spun
Finds us all the closer together

Blue and Gold (Terzanelle)

What's good in this world is blue and gold
What frightens us black and red
The tell tale signs of the loving soul shows bright and bold

The perfect sky and sea wonderous to behold
With words that are better left unsaid
What's good in this world is blue and gold

Under rigors that would make a better men fold
Take for a fortnight or more to bed
The tell tale sign of loving soul shows bright and bold

These are the days of which stories are told
Filled with foreboding and dread
The tell tale sign of a loving soul shows bright and bold

Bring warmth to darkness and cold
Out of the abyss we are led
What's good in the world is blue and gold
The tell tale sign of a loving soul shows bright and bold

Untitled 555

Storm rising on the horizon
I remember dancing among the lightning
It never touched my body
Only my soul
Scorching where it hit
Binding us together
As we walked
Hand in hand
Calmly
In a forest of lightning

Protection Sonnet

Protect this house and all within who dwell
Depart all who mean to vanishéd the peace
If one doth come ring on alarum Bell
Awake, turn on the light, take up the feast

Raise the sea wall, crashing sound, dumped and drowned,
Ready the lights and powder the flares,
Draw the windlass to cover the ground all around,
Open the vent to allow for the flow of air

Thieves will be followed, cut-pursed and leery,
Goods will be sold back,when caught in the act,
Violence left, only for those who deal with Moirai*
Schooling criminals and shame, justice and tact

Please bless this prayer make its words heaven sent
And show those who would have harmed it, punishment

* In Greek mythology, the Moirai or Moerae /ˈm ɪrˌiː/ or /ˈmiːˌriː/ (Ancient Greek: Μοῖραι, "apportioners"), often known in English ...fates.

Le Soleil (The Sun)

¿Es-tu prêt?
Arriver comme le soleil
Brûler mes os à travers
Ce résidu réchauffe mon âme
J'ai enterré les restes de mon âme profondément dans la cendre
Je me LYE passer à l'acier
Si je devais changer mon âme ou mon cœur
Je ne suis pas prêt.
Mais pour vous, je vais essayer.
Je viens à vous avec des os carbonisés et l'âme de cendres et de lessive dans mon coeur,
Connaître
Ce bateau est à vous
Pour travailler votre volonté sur moi

Are you ready?
Arriving like the sun
Burning my bones clean through
This residue warms my soul
I buried the remains of of it deep in the ash
There I lye turning to steel
If I had to change my soul or my heart,
I am not ready.
But for you, I will try.
I come to you with charred bones and soul of dash and lye in my heart,
Know,
This vessel is yours
To work your will on me

Untitled #828

My eyes are like unruly hounds
They waver, close, and fall asleep
Encumbered with compassion
And the secrets that they keep
Until the moon grows thin
Until the seas run dry
Until the stars go dim
No inconstant, inconsistent love am I

...But....

Too many nights lay heavy
Burdened with my pain and your lies
I hope you know that I am ready
To carry your secrets and rise

....So....

Until the clock strikes elevens
No need to take it in your head to flee
Lying side by side
The pressure of you against me
I feel your burgeoning love
Laying aside me and mine
No need to move right now
The world itself will be just fine

....Because....

Everything has a beginning
And everything has an end
The middle is sitting right here.
Time and two and twice again
The sky turns blue and gold.
Morning seeks to part this pair
Should the universe achieve this goal
The whole world will find itself stripped bare.
