Among the Sounds, Haiku

pressing onward, love

reaches out, leading us up

higher vibration

high upon mountains

thoughts screaming into the breeze

echo upon air

sparkling in twilight

revealing inner beauty

eyes before me dance

waves cascade crisply

lifting our essence higher

together, as one

in simple presence

carried emotion pulses,

words fail to explain

under falling skies

hearts along a path converge

stirring embers within

in service to self

no virtue harder attained

practiced detachment

premeditated

an effortless stroke defers

masterful action

Rubaiyat

Long the travels made in the night

Long the farewells in early light

Long the silence in hours cost

Before these dreams were made to fight

Lines made deep, then shallow, then crossed

Progress taken for gain, some lost

Along the path, where tears were shed

In soothing fires, fueled on exhaust

Now passion reigns within the head

Desire quelled, the heart like lead

Begins to shift, indeed, unfold

Gaining nourishment on love fed

To blossom revealing pure gold

To become the stories untold

Clearing away darkness to shine

Embracing the way to be bold

Day 16: Pushkin Sonnet

As I idle away in a daydream

Tracing the origins of emotion

An exercise to others that may seem

Excess, stems from a lack of devotion.

Whether believing in dest’ny or fate

In true reflections do we elevate

In moments when we create history

The motive of souls remain mystery

The way eyes sparkled & danced in the light

When she first planted love’s seed in my chest

The words unspoken, our journey, my quest.

Clearly there was something about that night

If not love at first sight, surely a start

A light in the dark, her place in my heart

Day 13: Mathnawi

A dream to remember upon waking

Images fading fast in their making

Now sudden chills that leave my soul shaking

Standing in open fields of rolling grass

Before the door, a house of clearest glass

Enclosing there all the ghosts of my past

Displaying terrors, unrested errors

All the bad news, of which I was bearer.

Skeletons chipping good deeds made rarer

By covered up lights made dim in despair

Not seeking to solve, solutions by layer.

Smothered up fights festering in this lair.

Faced by beasts in such terrible manner

I looked away but then scanned her.

The face that I love, across the manor

In the dark presence, once full hearts drooped down

Away did I run, to her side swooped ’round

My arms, to cover those eyes lest they drown.

To my surprise, she showed concern not fear

Calming me down, speaking close to my ear

Thus did she whisper, “Have no worry my dear,

Lingering demons do harm yes but now

is our time to care. let us not follow

the past, it only will make you hollow”

Words spoken gently she rested her head

Upon my shoulder and away went dread.

Next sensation, alone, shaking, in bed.

Day 5: Enclosing Triplets

Come friend so dear, on me lay your tears,

Allay your worries, let emotions go

Find stillness in mind, as fear disappears

In warmth that we share, the magical flow

 Rising together, our light we will shine

 As true companions, one lifts other low

—–

Lost, in my momentary flow

Neon pours in waves through thick air

Lights revolve slickly in the glow

Motions open, whriling with flair

Cascading dimensions of sound

Suddenly i see her and stare

Spinning in shadows going round

Long tresses, gold shimmering hair

Sweet goddess I pray lay me down

Sonnet 326

What feature is there upon her face

Pulling my soul out into the night ?

The essence of dreams, set in plain sight

To lay where I lie, drifting in space

Seeking through darkness, shadows of grace

Leading me onward, fueling my light,

Settling course when drifting too right.

Spiralling in to reach her embrace.

Nestled in familiarity

What shall it be, singularity

Time shattered, then infinite lasting?

Or merely a fancy in passing

That forever keeps me fasting ?
