Neon Carnage

Bright dipper nights. Something resembling form. Dragon storm nights. Something resembling formlessness. Many colours between flicker and flare. Flashes in patterns abandoned bounce across car bonnets. Hitch rides on roving motorcycles. Colours split in puddles. Falling with raindrops. Sidewalks littered … Continue reading

Spears Edge

Ten thousand jewels gleam in the vast heaven. Great ocean churns to the rhythm of glistening silver. Shimmering droplets transform into an eightfold universe. Along a spears edge, Buddha’s ascent on dragon back. ~~~ Image found here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Kunisada_II_The_Dragon.jpg Mixing myths.
