In Glory They Shine

Undaunted he rides on creature with wings

Head thrown back, from true heart he sings,

Banner aloft, a symbol of power,

Challenging the beast, for this is his hour –

Misery and heartache he brings.



Struggle ensues in stars’ endless night,

Clashes almighty! A furious fight!

Mounts of giant standing keep to their pace,

Enabling each rider to take part in this race –

This marathon for forthcoming light.



Brilliance looks on, each heavenly body,

Shimmering with excitement, for these two embody

The battle that wages out here in this ‘hood,

Death is success for the bad or the good –

Mercy shown for nobody.



Years pass in combat, blood flows from the sky,

Drips to the earth and burns you and I,

Venom from one with viperish tongue,

Hooded and ready he sprung –

To the heart of hero forbye.



Evil was winning and good hung from his steed,

Victim too worthy but ready to bleed,

He looked all around in desperate plea

To stars in the galaxies, that’s you and that’s me,

And they responded, paid heed.



Mustering all mighty strength they maintained,

They breathed forth their power, in good’s name proclaimed,

Light will battle with darkness, it’s true,

One is enough, but many is better than few

So goodness may be blessed and ordained.



It’s true what I tell, it’s the conflict of old,

Centuries written, millennia told,

Where two hearts of one man, divided by cause,

Wreak havoc and vengeance with weapons and claws

And declare to the world they are bold.



But bolder than man with blackest of heart

Is the radiance of heavens that shone from the start

Seeking to illumine where darkness prevails,

Appease understanding with light-infused tales

Of glories one day to impart.

Forfeit Love

There are questions that need answering

But solutions are elusive,

Emotive connotations and

Feelings too profusive.


Resolutions reside in space,

Seeking earthly shore,

So wonderers and ponderers

Will wander, lost, no more.


There are lovers, born at distance

Whose paths will never cross,

Where destinies and fortunes

Will suffer at such loss


That cruellest blow did strike at two

To know and then to part,

 Forfeit solace, soul reunion,

Two minds, two loves, one heart.


There are some who will believe that love

Finds another way,

To sublimate the earthly plain

So two, as one, may stay.

Photo Inspirations

Can’t resist these amazing photos.

I couldn’t work out how to reblog and include poems…, hope this is okay. 🙂

Inspiration speaks.





This dagger, jewelled,

Betrays what fool

Dwells within my heart,

Pierced by pointless passion,

Blood seeps and so I start

To see the lie, the hand that held

Such gilded handle so,

Aimed at trust and honesty,

Life essence leaks, though does not show.




Love’s Token

This gem is my token

Of love so unbroken

By distance and desert so dry,

Claimed from a source

In joy, no remorse,

A token between you and I.




Discovery in nature’s lore,

Plants and seeds and flowers,

Creative combinations heal,

Disdained by higher powers.


A pinch of this, a drop of that,

Mixed with loving care,

Pharmacy from olden days,

An alchemist was there


Using all intelligence

And belief in natural wonder,

Progress paints as foolishness,

Pulls folklore asunder


Till chemical analysis,

Tested in a lab,

Discovers many honest truths,

Declares some potions fab


And so creates, from synthetic means,

Equivalent in components,

Elemental particles,

Not really new proponents.


Dismiss ye not the forest glade,

The jungle and the seer,

Purveyors of all healing powers

Thrive, in giving, without fear.





The Tryst


A tryst here played

For months and days, in

Secret hidden garden

Till lovers recognise the lie.

Two hearts, too quickly, harden.




Lantern Light


This lantern light that floats to earth

Kissing, gently, lake,

Restores belief in magic power,

Innards quicken, quake.


Revealing planetary orb,

Reflecting light above,

Drifting self, amniotic sac,

Bask in glow of love.




A Misty Way


An avenue of sentinels

Guard a mist way,

Only brave and wonder-filled

May pass, where secrets play.


Inviting stroll or fearsome quest,

Truth lies out beyond,

Where, shrouded in a foggy haze,

Souls dance on golden pond.


Too late for some to turn back time,

Reverse the footsteps’ call,

Lost inside another world,

Most beautiful of all.
