#176 (what the moon taught me)

 image

The clouds taught me

to wander in quiet

the wind taught me

to be calm or strong when needed

the rain taught me

to release pressure

the sun taught me

to become the center of my universe

the stars taught me

to shine a light for others

the moon taught me

that life moves in circles

#96 (starboard sirens chanting)

shrinking shadows

as the riders

on the wind

collect their bounty

from the cold

silver frozen tongues

a whispered

oath

tide

was in

and your float

adrift

starboard sirens

chanting

odes to the first

warm breeze

reborn light

painting stories

of spring

onto our foreheads

I’m craving every

fleck of

sun

#86 (the sky remained)

fruitless endeavour

yet pierced by

pride’s sharp sting

he aimed

his spear

right at the sun

wiling the fireball

out of the skies


abundant pleasures

he shunned

to find

his mind’s sacred

treasure

burning beneath

a merciless leader

destroyer of planets


undesirable effects

as words spoke louder

than actions

the sky remained

so did the red giant

and another unsung hero

collapsed

his chosen burden

adamant
