World Poetry Day 2018

It's time
To rhyme

The eyes reflect once in a while,
A door carved in a special style.
It opens, and you'd think you'd dare,
Hoping for thrills, 
Fearing a mare,
Expecting chills,
Forgoing care,
You dare.

Once in a while, so it appears,
The closing door reflects in tears.
Confused, you'll think that you should try,
To hold on. Stay,
To scream, to cry,
But you must stray.
And fly -

And all whiles gone, your mind reflects,
The opening and closing acts.
The lessons learned, the minuet,
Of thoughts a sea,
Of hopes to get
Another key,
But don't forget:

Haikus, Two

for M. G.

See my eyes whisper             
             Another digital form
       Of wrong being right


       But your mind wanders
            In strange waters, through fire
for another chapter.

I'm chasing Gods while chased by Death,
Painting my road so careless,
A desert takes away my breath,
And makes me very anxious.

I've seen your road, ivory white,
Maya blue clouds, deceiving -
My eyes, - your picture's a delight,
In light and shades, so teasing.

The flowers silver, ice blue, teal,
Enchant my wasteland vision.
I know I'm not allowed to feel -
so much for just a fiction.

The lake, liquid, electric blue,
I'm tense and feel so captive,
'Cause I have lost my road for you,
The blue was too deceptive.

Her mind dreams notes painted in silver,
And doubts the future will arise
The lost emotions, lost within her,
She feels ... anaesthetized.

The world, the wind, seem mere illusions,
Eons went by since life surprised,
With passion, thrill, obsessed infusions,
Her heart ... anaesthetized.

Colors seem cold. They are reflections,
Of light, and she has been advised,
There are no angels, elfs or demons,
Her eyes ... anaesthetized.

Breathing in desert. Sands seal the sound,
Her vision's always theorized,
And though eternal, she has found,
Her lips ... anaesthetized.

She kisses snow. Feels icey mirrors,
And all around -, shadows disguised,
And voices, echoes, frozen whispers,
Her Soul ... anaesthetized.

The distance to a soul, unknown,
The distance hiding beneath eyes.
A touch away, but ever so,
A touch that only lies.

And would I ever dare to walk,
The distance to a soul, unknown,
I'd seek a bridge, and ever so,
Walk up, up, up... and down.

But as my eyes are made of stone,
And all my dreams of icey nights,
The distance to a soul, unknown,
Are letters mere, a poet writes.

And I could write and write and write,
Chasing old shadows, all alone,
Yet never walking, sadly quite,
The distance to a soul, unknown.

Locus Solus

The 'Soul' is a different entity ... ever far and alone. Doleful chamber of autopoiesis

Dissembled dark. I doubt he'll write,
That he's lost in a mirror,
The poets effulgent delight
Reflects always a dimmer...

... a dimmer sound, entailing sin,
In forms which once were breathless,
Havoc emerging from within,
Eventually exile, now faithless...

... now faithless dreams in flawless time,
Endless in lonely hours,
Dreaming of a dreadfull rhyme,
That 'we' would call now 'ours'.

Meet me:
I'm called curiosity -
I'm the voice of the restless.
And I am made to taste
All that is tasteless
- to anteriority.

I am placed before fear -
Yet feared am I by many,
For I am made to see,
All things so uncanny
- behind the lone-moving gear.

From reason, from instinct -
Times hunter, times pray,
I am made to smell
Wind carrying away
- World existant, world extinct.

I place
Time and space -
In the hands of the poor.
And to feel, am I made -
Lies, Truths, so the more
- how they grow, how they race.

My stories are endless,
From Winter to Summer, to Spring or to Fall.
I'm the motion, the force -
I am made to do all
But to hear the Silence.
