WhispersA Poem by Robin
A collaboration with Kelsie Stark
Travel in the wind on gossamer wings,
Silver like the moonlight on a fractured sea ,
gilded waves beckoning from emerald dreams.
A golden beak, glints
rustic like the sunbeams in a towering tree;
A siren song escapes in intervals-
a harmony in a mysterious key.
Eyes widen, a veil is lifted from the night-
The sound of Thunder applauded each moment
midnight took stand on dunes lost in the abyss.
The oaken clock , each golden hand joined together,
a dark silhouette reaching upwards, as the final grain of sand slipped through the hourglass-
Silence woken like cashmere doves risen from natives hands,
A vision shimmers in morning light as the dreamer awakens the dream -
A dream in a dream, a new inclination.
Petals fall like feathers into the wind-
a place to begin what journeys lie.
As ears turn to this song of strange light, spiraling through the mind,
Vast universes un-warp like honeydew on dawns lips;
chromatic verse to be shouted from atop ancient ziggerauts.
Children of dusk join in on handstands and cartwheels,
performing secret ceremonials of unknown lovers to be unmasked by Lilith’s right hand,
as an aurora of spectral blessings illuminates the darkness, voices lower in respect
as Elders set fire to oak and watch paintings emerge into dances-
Rubies adorn skirts and reflect the moonlight
as eyes meet, and the sky captures a memory
The woeful womb swells with confetti and bursts into
a syllabic rain upon verdant slopes.
Quietly the language of a hawk shatters the nightfall,
tearing apart the seams of their heart,
They grasp the droplets of the past and place
Them into clay pots and watch the roses grow
Into something more than their own ricochet..
the scent of love -
and their blood on its thorns .
