Betrayal

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.

Folklore

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.
