Flow

Each drop delicately sticks Holding strong without toppling Without knowledge of having ever toppled Showing elasticity like spring's synchronicity Tears leap from the sky to first aid-- nourishing Whether puddles or droplets gaining extra depth Or charred metal bleeding rust with each stab Corroding, inevitable disintegration with Each drop gently falling to the earth Free … Continue reading Flow

Phoenix #2

The heroin So irresistible Lamenting, pretending No heroine She's subdued--  By stagnancy  The quill scribbles  Ignorant to intention  Never fulfilled Nightmare replaces nightmare Dreamer incinerated  Strung along in hypnosis Denial anchored Through each new life Segregated further  Preaching Yet no Application of Beautiful sermons  Desperate wishes Of validation  Sonnets received  She burns in hell No … Continue reading Phoenix #2

Observed

Hypnotized fireflies Gazing up,  Their reflections  Entwined  In this battle  Within space  Which is the observer  And how many levels  Of mirrors reverberating  awareness-- exist  Through this labyrinth Of reality  Dew cradles my cheek Unfelt space But seeing that which is felt A gentle reminder, These duplicates Are blind to the Aurora of lanterns Above,  … Continue reading Observed

Standard

Standard deviations From drowning In a well To soaring above The canopy The densest forests  Concealed visions  Most comforting,  Fragments strung, Quilts An illusion of necessity Submerged,  Blizzards paused Business subsides Grasped ladder Glistening wings  Buoyant with gravity  Talons open Atonement in clouds  Image taken from Pinterest

Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 1, Angkor Wat and Surrounding Temples

Until the day before arriving in Siem Reap, little did I know that I would be seeing far more temples than merely Angkor Wat. Although dilapidated and damaged, Unesco has done a wonderful job of preserving these temples. The first temple we saw was Bayan, constructed in the 11th century. Cambodia, historically, followed the Hindu … Continue reading Siem Reap, Cambodia Part 1, Angkor Wat and Surrounding Temples

Locked Away (4/4)

Little Red Riding Hood sits there, endowed by a twilight of cyan and violet. Waves dance across the shore, twirled by his windy partner. However, the partner was not too windy, more gentle, like a soothing massage on her back. An aura above seems to be her own, free, for all to grasp, sinking in the … Continue reading Locked Away (4/4)
