Juncture

Child of the noble one
Of thee I must a sonnet write
For your beauty shines as the sun
And I partake in second sight.
Sadly you know me not
But through forlorn letters ne’er sent
Yet there is much I could have taught
Your fleeting youth has all been spent.
Of lost memories I can tell
Tales of war, battle, and blood
Sit with me, stay a spell
As I let loose a mighty flood.
I hold in hand a morning dove
A symbol of peace, friendship, and love.

From the far side of the globe
Guide me back to you

Dhyāna

Still open water
Mist drifting over the glass
Soft call of a loon

Pascha

Three days of darkness
The pain of healing as tissues mend
Today your heart beats once more
Today you rise and walk among us
For your candle burns brightly
Sing Alleluia, let the bells be rung
The lilies in my garden bloom
Feel the water on your skin
Let it cleanse your soul

Protean

I know many worlds
Each a semblance to its own
Yet all my garden

Theatron

In costume and mask
I stand before you a god
Yet no crowd gathers

The Fall of Dvārakā

Far in the reaches of the solar system
One icy body crashes against another
It’s trajectory altered by the impact
Sending it on a new path toward the Sun
As God whispers, “Now you are become death”
Be grateful for the tree that grows
It’s green leaves pleasing to the eye
Providing shade on a hot Summers day
For our time is short and there are those who feel no love
