Lilac and Salmon Clouds

Updated: Jan 8



1.


The full moon chases the setting sun


chasing

through peaks of lilac

and salmon clouds.


Such gentle beauty

reminds this brute

of the power one can conspire

to fuel an abundant fire


and yet also

the ableness of soft lustre

to fade into nothing.



2.


Without words, I have been

since kissed by the devil,


worrisome, I have been

should my pen or tongue ever fail truth.



Nature's decree

-

be dealt with reality

for ineffable hopes

be illusions of the naive


and unrequited reverence

deserves no thought of treachery


for even the prized fruit

born out of many dormant seasons

cannot

be preserved.



3.


Consider, presently


my soul has shriven the mind



t'was not the transmission of disease


or foolish love


nor

the birth of my interloping being.


Rain will fall

when

it

rains,


and my dear stars


will be

my light


when I discern them.
