Nightscape

* The sky erupts in crimson petals Velvet thoughts and zephyrs fill the air Silky rose petals form strange contours on the horizon As Helios the divine retracts his beams * Slowly, on an eternal arc, rises Luna The inscrutable Changeable On her mysterious arc * Constellations blink and glisten Rigid and possessive Glittering stars… Continue reading Nightscape

Storm, Poem

* Quiet Deathly quiet. Not a leaf stirs. A bird scolds as it flies. Dust rises for no reason. The milky sky darkens, Brown and yellow colours swirl as clouds draw up beyond the horizon.

Sky Mountain (Himmelbjerget)

* Lazy water lapping at the greensward Sunrise over the trees mark A tower reaching towards the sky.

Columbine

* Pennants flying in the breeze Pastel colours For pantomime dancers Hiding behind peacock tails. Pierrot smiles with his large red mouth And Harlequin kisses Columbine in an old-fashioned garden. * Flowers of grace and Ancient overtones Add mystery to Undertones of Fragrance and finesse * © HMH, 2021

Mistletoe

* Try to find mistletoe Not for kissing but To take it in oath Such plants are ever reluctant and Bring down the gods. Twilight plant Unwilling and dour But ever sealing our fate. The Norns rub their cold hands And smile as the pale berries Drop poison into Bleeding hearts From London Verses *… Continue reading Mistletoe
