    Clementine

    onthefritz007:

    She peels her clementine
    in one long stretch of rind
    resembling an island
    from an ancient archipelago,
    coating her fingertips
    in the taste of Grand Marnier
    and marmalade,
    as she patiently waits
    for the Sun to pour
    her greatness
    into the placid sea
    — unwavering
    in its fluid
    peace.

    A root
    a heart
    a mind
    emerging inside

    in utero

    the ebb and flow of night
    multiplies 
    and divides into stars
    wielding a magnificent light

    a breath

    exhaling the inception 
    of a new dream
    how innate
    and beautifully foreign
    it seems 
    to be at the heart of creation
    to giveth 
    and even taketh away

    a body
    a soul
    a self

    the nature
    of a new moon
    rising 
    in the cosmos
    on the eve
    of the first night

    with baited breath
    we wait
    for a glimpse
    a hope
    of this new life

    burlesque trees
    tracing sultry silhouettes
    limbs swaying in time
    to sunset chants
    we summon
    the day to fall to night
    a full moon rise
    like a pearl
    dangling
    from her bare skin
    the sky begins
    to disappear
    — completely
    behind a cloak
    of stars

    We envelop ourselves in the sunrise
    of a new age,
    when the call of change
    echoes fervently in the wind
    like a chord ringing
    from the steel strings of a guitar
    — serenading us into the future.

    I miss you
    in the long corridors of night
    labyrinthine shadows
    manifesting
    a maze of memories
    ominously
    morphing
    into a Hitchcock dream
    where truth
    is never
    what
    it
    seems

    "O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells. Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills."

    Polaroid A.M.

    onthefritz007:

    It is a wilderness out here
    from sea to peak
    the ocean speaks
    louder than words

    our collective verve
    travels on the wings
    of a crescendoing wind
    rustling our hair
    like scattered leaves
    of a maple

    draping ourselves
    in a veil of dew
    rising like espresso plumes
    our bodies mold
    to the asymmetry
    of driftwood
    like fire clay
    warmed
    between
    palms

    5:45 AM

    Space and time
    stand still
    here
    in early murmurs
    and late dreams
    before sunrise streams
    the sky is opaque
    like a porcelain expanse
    of atmosphere and clouds
    sun-less but proud to be 
    above it
    all
    I shiver 
    submerged in the ocean of my duvet
    my eyes ease
    to the pale light of dawn
    feeling like I’m the only one 
    here
    even for just a
    breath

    It is that impulsivity of youth
    that the summer captures
    so exquisitely
    — the way the sweltering sun 
    surges
    through our psyches

    inspiring 

    in flame & fire
    seducing our desire
    to live
    every moment
    as if our snow globe world
    will shatter
    in a heartbeat.

    onthefritz007:

    I’ve been staring
    at this page
    for days
    trying to find
    the perfect
    syllables,
    words,
    stanzas —
    that embody you.

    My eyes fix
    on my pen,
    willing the ink
    to flow - freely
    in verse,
    but each line
    lies
    as bare as before.

    Instead

    I close my eyes
    and envision you
    gazing back at me…

    You are the echo
    of a past life —

    a nostalgic tune
    we once
    hummed

    drumming
    that roll
    in my chest

    a sound
    as circular
    as breath

    renewing
    life
    in every cell

    as I am cast
    under your
    spell

    Mabuhay

    The stale rise of summer
    reminds me of Manila,
    the way air transforms 
    into a haze of surrealism
    surreptiously 
    wrapping the cityscape 
    in a veil 
    of a South Pacific myth
    perspiring 
    from temple to brow,
    we all still bow
    to this archipelago
    drifting
    in a delirium
    within our history
    — our home.

    Trikonasana

    Balanced is achieved
    in threes.

    Spine 
    twisting out 
    toxins
    melting away 
    malevolence 
    in slow
    meditative 
    motions.

    Chakras aligned 
    in a triangle 
    of breath
    from root
    to heart
    to crown
    — mind, body, spirit
    resound
    in a metaphysical 
    motif
    of peace.

    Moonrise

    Infatuated
    with waves rolling deep
    the ocean never sleeps
    seeping life onto shores
    roaring towards 
    igneous floors

    we connect 

    like a puzzle 
    beneath the stars
    salt tasting lips
    humidity drips 
    from skin tingling
    fingertips wriggling
    we sigh
    in unison
    watching 
    the moon rise

    onthefritz007:

    There is something sacred
    about you and I
    sharing this life,
    a spiritual infinity
    surging through our blood

    in the same way

    we are overcome with wonder
    from the peak of a mountain,
    eye level with a rising sun,
    taking a moment
    to catch our breath and
    whisper
    a humble
    — Namaste
    as we witness
    every miracle below.
