I sighed
Beneath a
Spreading
Chestnut tree
As darkness stalked
The night like a black swan
Gliding above their
Foam-flecked
Seething faces.

gateway_to_the_secret_garden_400Bursting pustules of contempt
Bubbling to the surface like
Mud puddles disturbed by
Geysers and hot springs
In the burning circles of
Their corruption.

The curdling clay,
Swayed, decayed
Green glow;
Carrion crows,
The to and fro
Through turbulent flows.

All the
Generations
Falling, folding
Into the iridescent
Gestational rebirth
And red flow;
Cooled by
Turquoise
And cobalt blue
Waves washed
In a cerulean hue.

A Silent
Solemn oneness,
Their mystical dirge
Scraping their
Barnacled souls
With the pumice
Of their redemption;
Collected in
The sedimentary
Memory of
the world.

The warm
Luminous
Auras floating
Above the
Curled plumed
Purple flapping flags.

Above
Dispersals
And reversals
Of the larval
Genesis of
Progeny
And progenitors.

As darkness stalked
The earth like a black swan
Gliding above their
Shining, radiant
Faces aglow.

The soft
Diffusing
Yellow sun
Gently touching
The white fluid
Ice flows,
And woven prose
Wreathed with roses,
Violets and lilacs;
Periwinkle and dripping
Prussian blue
Splashing
New colour
Into this
World.

As I sighed
Beneath the
Spreading
Chestnut tree
On a clear
And cloudless
Day.
