Let the mermaids in my teacup distract us for a while

Liske

Her unconquerable spirit burns,
A blinding phoenix within her skin.
From the embers of dreams left broken,
Undaunted it rises, and rises again.

(To my friend, a raging flame who is as wild as she is strong)

A Heroine Reclaimed

She closed her eyes and surrendered at last to the sky as it gently wrapped midnight around her and delicately put her back among the stars. 

Harbinger Dragonflies

Let’s dance beneath the night sky, love
As the stars dedicate us a tune
The universe is yours and mine, love
Let’s celebrate by the light of the moon

My future is mapped in your eyes, love
And I won’t be low when this night is through
For only when I greet the sunrise, love
Will I believe that this dream came true

 
(To Alexander and Sasha on their Wedding Day)

Haiku – Candle Light And Velvet 

She floods his senses.

Waves of desire immerse him

As he drinks her in.

Haiku – Agony

The sky wept with her

And with the cracking lightning 

Her heart broke in two.

Haiku – Broken Promises

Scarlet confessions,

Tidal truths crashing down on

His reality. 

The Roaring Poet 

His messages are boldly written

With blunt honesty, raw, but true

He protests against the damage done

Tales of the wronged, the violated, me, you

Calling out to the abandoned and alone

Uniting the invisible and too often unheard

He joins their inner war, draws his microphone

And voices their struggle, screaming it word for word

He withstands ignorance and falling often on deaf ears

His sound branded violent, aggressive, satanic, lewd

Standing strong, he repeats their message, sees them rise against the leers

A misjudged warrior for the chaotic liberation of the subdued.

Stormy Afternoon

She thought of these moments as solemn secrets kept by the raging storm, its howling winds perfectly disguising the cocoon she was hidden safely within.

The warm peace in the room heavily contrasted by the landscape at war with itself just outside the window. Two worlds existing in the same moment. The one out there, the one in here.

“So much like life…” she mused to herself, getting up to refill her cup, “only that usually works the other way around.”

She gave a rhythmic twirl to the sound of her favourite song, causing a disruption of music and candlelight around her, the tiny spaces between filling with her laughter.

This was the safest she felt to be herself, alone with her own thoughts which all seemed to drift into comforting perspective now. Her mind was never quite this clear, her spirit never quite this at ease.

 

Haiku – Captured Moment

Streaks of golden life

Whispering down through the leaves

Kissing her soft skin
