Treasure Island

Silver birches


A crack of light
Like a silver birch
In the night
Holds its spell over me
It’s like looking into a well
Knowing – tranquillity exists
In completeness,
No matter how dark – this…
Circle is,
I know there’s a light in my soul.
Willing to confess there is - love
In this wilderness—
Beneath blue moon creeper’s
I know I’m falling in love - again.
With scorpion wasp-sting-kisses - a wine
You can only swallow deep
Like the heady night of darkness.
Crackling with light
Like those silver birches
In the night
Holding their spells over me
My attention is a nest of vipers
As those leaves of her catkin kisses
Her sickle moonlit limbs,
Take little bites of my solitary, melancholy.
Breaking off silver-breaths of dragons
That sealed their hearts wishes
With a wreath of purple violet, flowers.
It’s like looking into a well
Knowing – tranquillity exists
In completeness,
No matter how dark – this…
Circle is,
I know there’s a light in my soul.
Willing to confess there is - love
In this wilderness!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
