Bleeding Violet

Violet Flame Painting by Cristina Wisdom | Artmajeur

fanning violet flames,
circle’s come
full..

flood the earth’s arid
veins with pure
glowing
stream

and breathe slow
as life curing
smoke

bakes
into each bone,

too deep in the
fibers to
feel it

plumes of wild purple
sparkle and
sway
as..

heart bleeds too bright
for a clear eye
to fear it.

Breath On Breath

Couple watercolor | Watercolor art lessons, Watercolor art, Art

open to receiving any
beating you’ll
offer

my fraught
heart..

starved body,

scouring blots
of past
with

steel wool
mittens,

friction sparks,
i’m warming

to the feel of real
against my
skin,

squirming toes
of rosy
kid,

we’re so close..
to cheating
death,

wings part as shivers
slither up the
spines

of dizzy lovers-
chest to
chest

blind to
time.

2021-01-02 – New Day

when i press play
hard enough
i become..

sound and for the moment
it’s nice to float in on
songs of soothing
mingling
with

night’s faint
praises,

i don’t have to see
horizon to
feel..

you headed
this way,

and i don’t need the
sun to drown
me out

to know it’s
a new
day.

2020-12-31 – In the Root

black jungle Painting by baris tuzun | Saatchi Art

as child, i wished for
bats to swarm
our roof

now i dream a
need for

more kissing
booths,

and sticky
sheets
are

proof i’ve

no more sense of
what’s toxic
sky and
what’s

just poison
in the
root.

2020-12-26 – Growing Leaves

Translucent Layering - Painting Class with David Dunlop

peeling a layer
revealing

too much overgrowth
to cut through
in one
life,

so i’ll clip the tip
of but one
leaf..

sturdy enough to seed
amongst my
garden’s
weeds,

and drop level
to fertile
earth

as faithful
sinner,

and sift soil softly
through my
fingers.

2020-12-12 – Toes in the Soil

knot’s tightened since
i last tugged
on laces

so, alone i roam
barefoot
into..

the garden and
let my toes
wriggle
free

oh, to breathe in
the soil and
toils of

past
harvests

and exhale
anew

++++

seems the knot’s
laxed since
i last

fumbled with laces of
any shoe, ’cause in
truth, my feet
are sick of
cages too.
