Jasmine Hue

Drift on through the setting rays, With purple smell upon your wings. Open wide those shuttered doors, Let in the jasmine so calm and serene. -M.E. InkOwl

Write From Within

Write. Drag pen across paper, Decisively mark a first step, Onto an empty road. Breathe in a moment, Feel what is, And do what comes naturally. Write. As the world sighs beyond that open window. Write. As line of flame dancing up a dry twig’s back. Write. As moths flutter above your flickering light of … More Write From Within

This Frost

Where came this Frost, Upon the weakened bows of life? Down to the roots does sleep crawl, Filling eve dark spaces with seeming death. Draw close to me dear one, That we may fall asleep together. Wrapped in each other’s arms as all turns cold, May we pray for the coming dawn of spring. -M.E. … More This Frost

Winter Deepens

Let this earth vibrate with a deepening power, Shaking the very foundation holding slothful powers on high. Let this Spring of ignorance never reach the fruition of Summer, Minds bent on selfish reasoning degrade in the harsh reality of Winter. Let ice and cold howl in from the North, Covering all these decedent places in … More Winter Deepens
