Celadon Hues Nonet (Photo Prompt Monday)

Celadon hues of dialogues passed

fragments of coiled conversations

vacant rings of history

yet wrong numbers persist

no need to answer

dappled memoirs

letting go

of past

tones

Ripples (Photo Prompt Monday)

Anfractuous reflections

dancing ‘midst

sacred earthbound mists

and luscious unearthly dew


choosing boundaries

of neither stone nor shore

navigating above rippling mirrors

releasing pristine echoed light


unmapped liquid prisms reveal

curving serendipity

and

encompassing desires

destined to never be etched

upon papyrus

 

silent viaduct

defines only direction

never a purpose

Bridged Reflections

Canvas (Photo Prompt Monday)

Canvas, oh canvas!


scraped leavings

discarded by

sundered quires of imagination

beckoning disconsolate chimeras

of crumbled sagas spent

 

Be fair ….. yet …..

beware of unveiled passions

seemingly etched

for zephyr directed wraiths

to ignore ….. or heed …..

at their own peril


Canvas, oh canvas!


enticing silvered reverie

from within her argent palettes

moonlit prisms bathe

sacred runes

upon

numinous ruins


Never seen pasts ….. emerge

to swirl with Futures assoluta

ripped from Light herself

whispering her slated dreams


Canvas, MY canvas!

Marmairein (Photo Prompt Monday)

pathway to Morn’s blush

tarry not Gloom’s rush

be still yon chaotic flare

soothing lambent streams

blended aurous dreams

illuminated souls ….. dare

Pristine maiden snowfall
joyously yielding
crystalline aisles of abandon

Impulsive ….. yet confident gait
hastening wintertide nickers of

Would that I could ….. (Photo Prompt)

Would that I could …..
dream of sky beyond clouds
imagine colours beyond blue
invent words out of sound
recite myths of the veldt
share soaring flights of fancy

Would that I could …..
I would start with a single …..
jump

Bulwark – Photo Prompt Monday

darkclosetdoor.jpg

Dormant cinereal perils
force their presence
mapping their intent
upon contrariwise barriers …..
….. of dust

Etched with sutured memories
carved by exigent passions
stained with rogue ecstasy

Ancient bulwarks defend
yet …..
….. offer safe passage

Pleiades:  This titled form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine’s Lead Editor. Only one word is allowed in the title followed by a single seven-line stanza. The first word in each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables.

Background of the Pleiades: The Pleiades is a star cluster in the constellation Taurus. It is a cluster of stars identified by the ancients, mentioned by Homer in about 750 B.C and Hesiod in about 700 B.C. Six of the stars are readily visible to the naked eye; depending on visibility conditions between nine and twelve stars can be seen. Modern astronomers note that the cluster contains over 500 stars. The ancients named these stars the seven sisters: Alcyone, Asterope, Celaeno, Electra, Maia, Merope, and Tygeta; nearby are the clearly visible parents, Atlas and Pleione. The poetic form The Pleiades is aptly named: the seven lines can be said to represent the seven sisters, and the six syllables represent the nearly invisible nature of one sister.
