    Rice paper sky
    dissolving 
    into lo-fi chords 
    of rain
    acoustics 
    drip the refrain 
    echoing
    the dreary remains
    of a day
    gone 
    by

    we 
    wonder 
    why
    our exhales
    hang precariously
    in mid-air
    like spirits billowing
    in despair
    as we watch
    the summer
    die

    we shiver
    beneath
    every layer
    lingering
    on our bare skin
    our hearts begin
    to rattle against
    our chainlink chest
    clavicles shake in unrest
    as autumn peaks in the West

    I wish you were here 
    to see me now

    a daughter
    a warrior
    a woman

    fumbling 
    through every line break
    of my story

    searching
    for something
    real
    in this world 
    without you

    I long 
    for even a glimpse
    of who
    you once were 

    a mother
    a warrior
    a phoenix

    an eagle
    forever soaring
    in my world

    a figure
    as innate as breath
    who will always be
    — You
    in life
    and beyond 
    death

    Origins

    Thoughts are just a whisper
    at this hour,
    as silence becomes the space
    filling every crevice like stars,
    punctuating distant skies
    with constellations 
    of life.

    We fly
    to the edge of our lives,
    our spirits dangle 
    from such great heights,
    precariously levitating
    on just a hope
    and a dream.

    It all seems 
    fleeting
    - these years
    once a lifetime,
    now a denouement
    of what 
    it all means.

    September slips into the cracks
    of clavicles and scarves,
    quietly 
    disarming 
    nature at large,
    as leaves scatter in mosaic shards,
    abstract - yet a familiar design
    of harvest moons and autumn skies
    while endless days - surrender 
    to a reign of night
    - falling
    like the curtain call
    of summer’s 
    final rites

    It’s the rhythm of our depth
    layered in breath & stars
    gazing to the west 
    we wait for day 
    to set 
    into the orbit 
    of a prophetic moon
    our dreams meet skies
    that turn to dust so soon
    we take comfort in the flumes
    of night - despite 
    the darkness trails 
    as our moment hails
    tonight

    Genesis

    We are now
    the beginning
    of it all

    an era
    a sunrise
    a life

    chakras
    aligning - perfectly
    like the sun and moon
    dancing in tandem
    during an eclipse

    lightness and darkness
    become 
    one

    a single spectrum
    flickering 
    in the midst
    of day and night
    emerging
    from our glorious will

    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

    onthefritz007:

    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

    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.
