    Ancient

    Ancient moments
    Hang in time
    Like stars
    Burning holes
    Through that celestial shroud
    In another life
    We looked up
    And called them gods
    Now they yearn
    From their plexiglass prisons
    To run wild
    In the mind of man
    To set fire
    To the sky
    Once more

    Rain

    Your love is a warm rain
    In the shadow of a cloud
    My heart is in the sun

    Sulphur

    Within the sacred hush of the stage
    A silver voice emerges
    It laces the air like snow
    Sulphur waits in the wings
    As the gleaming sounds
    Rise and fall, twist and turn
    It waits to be invited inside
    Smoke clouds the air
    Like a tarnish on a spoon

    Pepper

    Words crack like pepper
    dashed over streets
    bubbling with dissent

    Storm

    History resides
    In the eye of the storm
    Whispering in winds of tear gas
    In hailstorms of biting bullets
    I think you can see its secrets
    In the whites of their eyes
    As a flower is placed
    In the barrel of a gun

    Rainbow

    This little rainbow
    Leads to a golden hour
    That drips from the leaves

    Ruins

    As the sleeping ruins dream
    Vines curl up against
    Her warm cobblestone streets
    Cracks adorn her archways
    Like crown jewels
    The ghosts of her hymns
    Echoing in the courtyards
    Sing of eternity
    A privilege reserved only
    For the souls
    Time forgot

    Pilgrim

    Light scatters
    Beneath the crown
    Of this cathedral
    Ripples of color
    Flood the floor
    As the pilgrim
    Falls to his knees
    Baptized in the gaze
    Of the saints
    He prays

    Farewell

    The petrichor laden air
    Was a farewell kiss
    From the far away storm
    In another land she weeps
    Yet the seed splits
    And life bursts
    From her tears

    Gravity

    Gravity swells in your mind
    As it creates its own reality
    Neurons strengthen and weaken
    Memories twist and fade
    Memories conspire
    With memories
    To defy reality
    But reality looks away
    And does not bother
    Correcting you
