SHAPING CREATION

Shaping Creation

Shaping Creation

Knitting in the round,

intricate shapes

embellish

nature’s doilies.

 

Nurturing hands,

aged

like air-washed glass

fondle

timeless determination.

 

Stitching day to night,

darkened figures

nod seamlessly

shivering

interchangeable designs.

 

Spirited exhaustion

springs awake-

a new day’s

colour.

OUTCAST WITHIN

Outcast Within

Bleeding away forced confessions

And unheard truths

With strabismus eyes

I see Clarity

Dressed in slits from

Morning’s curtain

 

Devoured by the bitter groans

Of darkness fed despair

I watch the serfs

Tortuous and mind washed

Stone the window

 

Branding Tears upon my heart

Secreted away

A moat of hope

Remains

THE LOST SONG

The Lost Song

The language of unsaying

captivates the soul—

secret codes and phrases

bound in nature’s scroll.

 

Convoluted messages

elude the human mind.

Beginningless—it ends,

lost to all mankind.
