Extreme Speed

Flicker and hum.
Neon tangles manifest as temples.
Clear and empty.
Open road of black azure.
Roar, and roaring.
Red motorcycle at extreme speed.


Tangled neon. Flickering temples.
Open road. Black azure.

Red motorcycle at extreme speed.
Tail light lingers, then passes.


Red motorcycle at extreme speed.
Tail lights loiter but for a second.

Tangled neon in flickering temples fade, and fade
as the empty road opens, and opens.


Neon tangles have fashioned themselves into temples.
Hum and flicker.
Open road of black azure that just is.
Clear and empty.
Red motorcycle at extreme speed under dipper light.
Roar and roaring.




Emerald forests in vast.
Jade peaks of height.
Azure rivers of depth.
Empty heaven in space.
Ancient flame at extreme speed across the four realms.


Gibbon howls emanate from emerald forests.
Clouds snag on jade peaks at immense heights.
Dragons dance through the innumerable depths of azure rivers.
Empty heaven so vast the roc can’t cross over it all.
At extreme speed the ancient blaze in the four realms all at once.

    Enjoy the manner in which you poetize images. Do you have a particular method or order for acquiring your visuals & then writing your poetry?

    • I’ll get a line or an image in my head. Then I fit the poem round the image. Then I find the pictures to go with the writing.

      The ideas come from anywhere. Books, other poems, pokemon, random things I see or hear. The style I write is based on ancient chinese poetry, and branching into japanese. If you read poets like Wang Wei, Meng Hao Ran and Po Chu-I, I try to get that vibe.

      Hope this answers your question. And thank you for commenting.
