rarity, I find

I watch as the rain comes down heavy Luckily abandoned Lucky for us Roof still sturdy enough Walls still strong enough Security Such a rarity I close my eyes and listen to the sounds The silent ting ting White noise beautiful Scents from the dirt and the leaves Shivers trace my skin It is nice… Continue reading rarity, I find

Cries/Raven

I watch My babe Estrella lovely Playing as only babes do Furs thick and heavy over my shoulders I blink Sluggish sleepy weak It is dark in this hollow mountain cave Dark, bar the fire light flicker flicker Air thick with sweet smokey food smells The teeth mother fills my bowl She nods Insisting I… Continue reading Cries/Raven

sea glass green

Trees Taller than I have Ever seen Tall as buildings Tall as monuments Nature's statues Relics Skyscrapers of bark umber Sea glass green leaves Shimmering in the twilight heat Glimmering haze oasis Mirage hallucinations Hallucinating Clear as day Clear as shallow seas Shallow graves Shifting light Sun rays warping filter Kelp wafting anemone arms Rays… Continue reading sea glass green

sacred texts colour

Markings from their ancestors Worshiped sacred texts Colour and words Meaning interpreted They bend a knee Whispering prayers Scribes search for more Hoping to decipher meaning They kneel on the floor of this ancient beast Not knowing what their church once was The ghost of sound Rumbling clacks Never heard in this place A sound… Continue reading sacred texts colour

across the maw

In darkness Behind painted lids I walk Stepping carefully Breathing Trying to smell To sense beneath The earth and leaves and decay My mountain home is steep Actively listening Straining Concentrating Branches brushing swish Twigs brittle crunch Leaves dry shuffling hiss A distant scuffle Panicked breathing heaving Clawing screams Thud Whispered falling of thresh I… Continue reading across the maw

Fever/breaking

In death's oubliette now the wait and now Thud thud opulent darkness in enchantment bone unearthed trembling in time haematic undulation rhythmic thudding skeletal phantasm lights elongate angelic screams every movement agony killing engulfing Inferno tomb Shadows terrifying owl pupils illuminated looking looking down on the apparition narcose yellowing teeth horns incandescent nails growing tortuous… Continue reading Fever/breaking
