Disjointed

Speak only outside
never
inside
Too many tangles
simple speech
things pure
easy
wind, water, fire, earth
not murky darkness
soul
person
me
disjointed

Zephyr

I can feel the Wind
it whispers secrets
burning my ears
Forcing me far from here
It surrounds me
A lovers strong embrace
holding me up
pulling me away
Then
abruptly
rips away its powerful grasp
Leaving
only the cool
sweet touch
of desire
lingering on my
skin

A Dreamers Psalm

Demons from the past
settle around me in the dusk
sneaking in and out of the dim shadows
self-doubt and fear
they beseige me
they tear at my eyes
they rip at my skin
laughing hyeinas
cruel laughter
ringing in my soul
pinning me
pulling off my wings
stopping me in my flight
Odd that it took me so long to
see
I will no longer stand for it
Child of light that I am
I call out in my weakness for help
I call out for mercy
And am answered
No more will these demons
have power over me
I rest in the protection
of the Light.

Broken Body

Broken cylinders
slashed tires
shattered engine blocks
defunct transmissions
Everything comes to a
screeching
halt

Tanka

Fog falls from heaven
Clouds melting in the sunrise
Forming pools of dreams
In the valleys of green grass
While the wind whispers hushhhh, hushhhh

Storm Runner

Angry darkness building ahead of me
Gray clarity chasing each step
Lightning does a backflip
and plunges beneath the surface
of the waves
I am moving forward
Smelling the electric air
Earth empties her sobs and rage
upon me
Soaking my soul in heavy, wet emotion
My feet compress the soft skin
of the ground
leaving behind footprint
shaped bruises
I keep moving forward
toward the dark horizon
Letting each step fall
into place
Ready for whatever gets thrown
in the path
