The 10,000 things
In wide open azure radiance
10,000 rainbows unfurl, unfurl
Tattered shroud shows only eyes
sense of anonymity unfurls, and unfurls
Darkness over azure
Staircase lost in time
unfurls, unfurls to no where particular
Mist emanates from wind bitten lips.
My breath unfurling, and unfurling joins the clouds
Snow wrapped peaks emblazoned in silence
disturbed by the unfurling lone gibbons roar
A dank backstreet puddle reflects a chimney.
In copy the smoke unfurls, and unfurls
Unfurling, and unfurling. Unfurled,
dragon wings covering all under heaven
Crimson mist clears strange peaks.
The pine cones unfurl, and unfurl
Foraging hermit wanders snowy peaks.
In the lowlands the snow recedes. The world unfurling, unfurling
The dragon dance halts, storm clouds dissipate.
The azure sky unfurls, and unfurls.
Fading twilight, trailing clouds swell in amber
dragon fire flares unfurl, unfurl
Wrapped around emerald mist slopes the dragons
coils unfurl and unfurl
Two people meet in fortuity. Without coaxing,
the moment unfurls, and unfurls
Celestial peaks far from the realm of man.
Clouds just unfurl, and unfurl
Thunder storm ceases
These are all separate poems, which I wanted to stagger on top of each other. That’s about it.
I do the same for my haikus, all unfinished. Nice poems 🙂
Thank you for the comment.
Some of these will remain as they are, while others will be developed further. It’s nice to write little things like this from time to time.
The pick of Ben Naga’s Newly Discovered Beauties for December 2011.
Many thanks for that. Very humbled.
This works, for me, as one poem — with a recurring motif. I think with some work you could bring these all together, in proper sequence and balance to create something pretty awesome.
You know, that’s a great idea. I’m in the middle of something else right now, but if I can find the time I could try and re work this.
