Joro

I held roses
for the dying heart
a bruise emblem sleeve to footwear



O Wizened Entity, placed in greatness long may those eyes protect,
bless and save thee.




Gatekeepers watch, awaiting those that book passage
into hidden garden grove
thy wooden wise one we place our faith to Your protection
hearth of spirit, looking glass divine
we Your children,dress Your spritely visage 
emblazoned emblem, totem to All Faith
She The Goddess praised within place

No total amnesty Her eyes and Ours belong entwine 
sign of time, before... so after 
we ride the current of woodland stream 
morning dew
evenings dream 
the green curls rise 
a soft wrap of luxury to the encroach lain empty

Bast of my soul, we are as we are 
secure to either side
wild 
You are not demure 
but vigilant supreme 
thine eyes, thine eyes 
protections Forever

Cry Of Nature

 

Shy nymphs nestled in roughened bark their spirits intertwined.
Stroked by breezes and gently hugged by reaching slender vines.
Joined as one the dryad fades should the giant die.
So tied are they to this their home that towers to the sky.
Sadly weep the lone sentinels that dwell in the living wood.
For mortals squander creations secrets before there understood.
The tribes of man no longer know about their ancient past.
Arrogant is their faith in foolish ways and luck that will not last.
Lust and want has cloud their minds reducing life’s true worth.
Destined to relive the ancient lessons once taught by mother earth.
The protective keep of woodland homes feels the growing threat.
Disturbing natures balanced peace the closer humans get.
What was once shall once again return to claim the land.
When no more is left to offer up its reward will be at hand.
The pursuit of fleshed Apollo’s to Daphne’s last retreat.
Shall leave the bitter taste of ashen suffering and defeat.

The resin of empathy

Consider my favorite sculptress
She the famous Barbara Hepworth
From great monoliths of stone
Found a form by bolster draw the hand  
To caress its tactile shine  
The quartz, that empathy refined
 
That in gods great pottery  
Each identity was true till death
Hand and nature a dormancy to unearth
Figured not always by us
Carved by truth and not distrust
The naked exhibit divested of its crust
 
They not like we, see those forms so hidden deep
Sleeping beauty awaiting to awake
That undress to bare  
Just chip by chip, flake by flake
Is there a kiss so cold defined
The  lovers empathy that Rodin found
 
Some ask us questions
Put the last before the first
A disected pregnancy
Twice life size by Damien Hurst
Where we were and where we be
That outlines pitied empathy
 
The warmth no words can entertain
From just blocks and logs so plain
The resin there like golden flame
Work and labour and toil sustain
Listen with you heart and soul
Enchantment shape each hammers blow
 
The resin of true empathy  
For tomorrows shapes remain just dreams

Please Release Me Let Me Go

Deep in this trunk a maiden sleeps
Awaiting the time she is released
When will the artist let her out
Her body is beautiful without a doubt.

She dreams of the day she's freed
What are her hopes; what does she need?
What is the destiny of a wooden carving,
Is she realistic in what she's yearning.

She wishes for life and love
Just beauty is not enough;
But such a wish is in vain
A wooden figure she will remain

Will she find she is adored
Winning a prestigious art award
But will that satisfy her soul
Or leave her heart with an empty hole

She will join a beautiful throng
To an art lover she will belong
But is this the freedom that she craves
Art works are treated like slaves
 
Bought and sold to the highest bidder
Put on display for experts to consider
She may be loved from a distance
 But what is the meaning of her existence?

The Elements Bring Out The Magic I Seek

( Tanka )
  
〰️🐚〰️
   
Mother driftwood sighs—  
shaped by Nature’s fickle storm,  
yet her insistence    
   
the old Sage whispers to me  
as I come to pay respects 
   
〰️🐚〰️  
   
the honor embraced,  
I feel the tree within her  
alive, evoking—  
   
the gulls soar in with each rush  
as she hears my ocean breath  
   
〰️🐚〰️
