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.

Jigsaw Brain

The Hardest Puzzle to Solve | Art, Painting, Brain art

never cracked
a puzzle,
i sop

blood from
murder novels,

where every fiendly
foe travels with
a spool of
rope

and shovel for still
night clean ups,
dust ups in
dim

ditch brawls revived
in grainy recalls

of details on a couch
in some smooth
listener’s
office,

slurping his
americano like..

gas right from
the nozzle,

i’ve lied about
how well

i solve
a puzzle?

maybe, maybe not,
perhaps that’s
all i’ve got,

have all you want if
heart knows
you true,

and if fate supports
that string of
thought,

i’ve got a ribbon i
wish to pin up
in you,

cheekbones sharp, so’s
the tug around
your heart,

as eyes re-adjust
to the creak
creak of

crusty lashes,
draw the
bath..

dissolving suds
down zigzag
drain

boxed into my
jigsaw brain.

Please help me get this ball out of my drain. - Album on Imgur

2020-12-12 – Blind Discovery

Interview with Dana Mallon - Paintings from the imagination - Jackson's Art  Blog

concerns dissolved
and absorbed by
discovery,

mind peeling
back leaves,
just to
see

what the void’s
willing to
unveil

to mind
unravelling,

a misfit toy
unwound and
cradled

in the hands
of time.

2020-12-07 – By Blush of Bonfire

awash with flashes from
my reel of dry
summers

flooding brain cells in
teal to cool the
crackling
of..

yore’s coral
embers,

reassembled and
projected

in holographic
campfire,

fever so high my sinus
itches for a flush
of camphor
and

the mind can’t quite
recall just
what

he ventured into
the woods
for.

2020-12-06 – Feel It.

“write hard, aim low”

was a down trodden
line pinned to
the hand

of my youth like badge
of my beloved
high

school band on a
raggy denim
jacket,

don’t believe all
the rage and
racket,

aim so high the
sky’s no
limit,
and..

write so hard the hand
over your
heart

always
feel it.
