Short Verses and Other Curses #2

(a second round-up of haiku and other diminutive discourses of mine posted in various places throughout the cybersphere)

*

Primal December
I ache for those pagan days
Saturnalia!

*

It’s those voices;
those penetrating and perturbing voices;
ethereal voices spoken from faceless mouths;
Yes, those voices.

*

how I view the world
requires not my eyes to see
my life’s perspective

*

long and dark-filled days
the light that once pleased now pains
still, faith guides my way

*

tho’ beyond my ken
speak unto me with thy tongue
whispered words betray

*

land between rivers’
nine year death knell rings no more
lies alone prevailed

*

Now is not so bad.
But, it always seems
to be a little better
as Then.

*

Surround me with such things
Erudite things
Simple things
Things of pleasure
Things of pain
Any thing
That can both
Take me forward
And can bring me back
To where I long to be
And to where I forever dread

*

minds provoked, pursued
the beating and burning heart
graves settle but dust

*

the blood turns not red
until the wound has occurred
truths are bound by scars

*

the slow burning fuse
the flash of the fireworks
none live less the spark

*

mete me with wisdom
mete me with the hidden way
blind, I find no bliss

*

empirical lust
a burning need for knowledge
cant douses the flame

*

Love’s arrival
demands Epiphany’s flourishing trumpet.

Love’s departure
requires no such song.

*

forge forever on
tho’ dark death rewards us all
forge forever on

*

whither journey’s end
is that which eludes me
yonder shall I go

*

from mind to matter
believe it and it shall be
you determine you

*

sing out savior songs
dance free amongst the cherubs
listen for the wind

*

if we chance to win
we must also chance to lose
both promise rewards

*

who among us all
leave no footsteps in the sand
who can bar the tide

*

the word is as told
its telling built empires
deconstruct it all
