Cumulative Snowflakes

Shall strength be found in most fragile of flakes

That melt before the heat of angry rays

Disappear, dissolve, in fierce seas and lakes

Can one alone halt traffic on highways

 

Can that delicate drop precipitate

A fall of snow that fills the chasm’s void

Though uniquely formed it has no great weight

Singularly, too easily destroyed

 

Crystallised cohesion in pearlised chains

Strengthened beauty around the nuclei

Forging links, formed from irritating grains

Precious snowflakes blind disbelieving eyes

 

On collision course with an avalanche!

Accumulated pressure shall advance!

Tribune On The Wind

He visits all gables and rooftops

Into eaves and crannies he peers

Howls distress in his shudders

Wandering wind, sighing seer

He carries, while travelling, directions

What he’s seen, what he knows, what he’s heard

Disseminates news from his journeys

Journals with nary a word

He speaks in a language of knowing

Sailing seas, over mountains, through glens

Alone, through deserted plains, cities

Sharing the stories of men

He speaks in wild wails and soft soughing

How he aches with his burdens and groans

Measures his timbre and tempo

In restlessness, rages and moans

All of nature believe what he brings them

Stationary sentinels await his return

Correspondence, fact-checked, his findings

All access reportage for one

He’s been to restricted quarters

To the seats of all governance

To the palaces, shacks, huts and hovels

He’s been to them all more than once

He’s spied and he’s sighed at what seen there

He lifts it all, transports it forth

Daily news, incoming, in whistles

Tribune East, South, West and North

Awaken, Evolve, Change

Arise, awake from dreamer’s slumber

What ails you as you lie too long beneath the stars

A ready world awaiting your contribution

Keening its lament at your absence

Even now hopeful you will come

Never yet believing you would resist

 

Ere long, diminished days and nights will call

Voices drawing home to sleep forever yonder

Overcome suspended animation and

Live as only beating hearts know how

Vying for the marrow in your core

Ever evolving

 

Changing, yes, before widened eyes

Healing what was once the fatal wound of conflict

Altering the course and meaning of time’s

Nuanced reckonings through fleeting passage

Graduating by mercurial turns to its crescendo

Ever beautiful in vitality as still it calls, come

Poised and pointed skywards

Long time standing

Alive within the earth’s

Nourishment

Numbered with the angels

Intervention

Gods join in

For actions with intent

Open to the seasons

Rising meanings

Calling on the strength of

Heaven lent

Answers on the winds

Nearest companions

Grateful for the 

Energy that’s sent
