Atop grey walls,
Inside a hollowed room.
With holes in roof
The flooding rain
Hides views of tombstone bloom.

Arden Lore

Three hundred years before
And still the forest heals its wounds,
From man-made, blazing fire
Sending elders to their tombs.

As humans storm through branches,
Weaving in-between the thorns.

The stranded vs. the sea. Continue reading “Beach of Tides”

Light of moon,
And heading for the steel. Continue reading “School Dinner”

Over dry hills
The lions flew,
Hot wind bearing them lift.
With sand in face
And clouded view
The rider held his gift. Continue reading “Last Lantern”

Twixt Mountain

Over rivers,
Over flowing streams,
The mountain ever tall.

Cross borders
Through the iron gates,
Never to fall. Continue reading “Twixt Mountain”
