My heart is yours
———————

I know…
Not all sisters
Talk in whispers
Never lose
Their temper
Hence, my desire
To reveal
My esteem,
Your attributes,
Make my words
Obsolete.

Your glowing
Greetings
Kindness in
All shapes,
No shape.
Boundless
Sparks
Off your heart
Spurring ours…
Short but happy
Intervals, tucked
& nestled
Ad infinitum.

Warmth garnered
For our gelid
Winters till
Summer reaches
To expose hope
Rise & growth
Appetence
For ritual.
Under your
Roof is revelry
Your triumph
Over adversity
A proof…

Of youth
With pansophy.
I enshrine my
Akin, my Fjord.
Have dropped
My anchor in
The realms
Of my
Affection.
My heart
Is yours
Darling
Beloved
Sister.

Retribution to veterans of cozenage
——————————————–

Thoughts buzzing
An incessant leitmotif.
Deceptions at the Aube (1)
Mordacity and broken dreams…

Mirth so short in the natural
Course of life…so long
When sowed with pitfalls…
A cordial façade turns to

Perfidiousness in the
Nanosecond letting go
Of principium such,
An animal with prey.

——————-

Faith in your light draws
The ones aglow, rich and
Vivid with strength, simply
Being, living what is.

Acknowledging, welcoming
Its perpetual rebirth, being
Accountable for the twig
And flower, the sun and

Rain, night and day, for
It is through you all exists,
For you…
Take away its inhabitants

And you have stolen purpose.
Entanglements… justification
For capitulating? They have
Given birth to your backbone,

Durability, the best input for
Veteran victims of cozenage (2)
For those who transmute
Adversity to victory, calamity

To boon, those who bring
Music and penetrate the
Far ends…Our marrow.
Who ream what would (3)

Have stayed comatose
Had they not come
On our path, forced
Radiancy in the

Dimness of humdrum…
Of the wonted. Those
Who have stopped the
Incessant leitmotif.

Les ailes brisées
——————-

Ah! Réveil brutal
Dans la nuit des façades
Amitié jusqu’à l’épreuve
Choc et rupture d’un fleuve

Fleuve qui ne coule plus
Dès la présence d’un caillou
Il se trace un chemin flou
Qui est lisse et sans embûche

Réveil brutal à la réalité
D’une amitié idéalisée
Déception de l’imparfait
Envole interrompu, par,

Les ailes brisées.

Broken wings
————–

Ah! Brutal awakening
In a night of facades
Amity until adversity
Shock and rupture of a river

River that no longer flows
At the presence of a pebble
It traces a fuzzy path
Which is smooth and without ambush

Brutal awakening to reality
of an idealized friendship
Deception of the imperfect
Flight interrupted by,

Broken wings.
