Surprise

frosty-fence

frost feeds on fear

freezes future fortunes

dishes up death on a silver platter

wouldn’t it be shocked to know

when we are flash-frozen

we grow glorious?

You Are Sky

vortex-sunset

You are sky,

canvas kaleidoscope

mysterious and dangerous.

I stare fascinated,

drawn by your glory,

terrified of your ferocity,

your untamed wild.

You are sunrise and rainbow,

hurricane and eye –

unpredictable and beautiful,

Beauty and Beast.

Your face reflects my own,

scrapes at places long-buried,

calls forth daybreak

from the ashes of darkness.

You smile and I dance.

You groan and I tremble,

labour beneath your tears and sighs.

You are sky,

too grand to be boxed,

too magnificent to be tamed,

and I love you.

 

 

Fanciful Fireworks

Fanciful fireworks

arcing green against

an early summer sun,

exploding with raw energy

.

while dazzling with bursts

of neon independence,

rebellion lit by pyrotechnics

of a slow-burning spring’s

.

impetus. Roman candles

ablaze with purpose and

passion, sparklers declaring

a living soul rising;

.

I ooh and aah at your

display, for I know that

this show of bravado

just might ignite – me.
