All Within (Acrostic)

ALL

Waking up here in the meadow

In the meadow far from all

Things which lurk around the corner.

Here I am safe from life's sorrow

In the meadow, where I am

Never fearing, never alone.



Wild (Acrostic)

Waking up the secrets

Inside here

Letting go of yesterday's sorrow

Dancing in the moonlit rain

Day (Acrostic + Haiku)

Delight in each day

Anew, bringing fresh chances

Your grief left behind



Sun (Acrostic + Haiku)

Sonnets can't compete

Under milky skies - waking

Nebulas within

Towers (Acrostic)

Trailing midnight hours

Obelisks seeking retribution

Waters rising above the tide

Escaping through infinity

Replicating the distance between

Space and time

Vectors at Midnight (Acrostic + Cinquain Swirl)

Veiled life

Enchantress - she

Chains me by sacred root

Threading needle - sanctuary

Octaves

Rise above the

Satellites, scattering

Across the frost covered twilight

Timeless

Mountains shadow

Iridescent futures

Defending powers of the moon

Nature

Incites the call

Giving unto cycles

Heavens exploding in all their

Treasures

Kaleidoscope (Tanka)

In the profound seas

I look for a part of me

Broken glass and shells

between kaleidoscope worlds

creation and destruction

Ghost (Acrostic + Cinquain)

Gently

Hours slipping by

Obsolescent twilight

Shattering boundaries between

The sky



Space (Acrostic + Cinquain)

Secrets

Perpetual

Ascending through futures

Challenging the finite - never

Ending

Chime (Acrostic + Cinquain)

Chasing

Hours to minutes

Interludes orchestrate

Musical instruments building

Empires



Below (Acrostic + Cinquain)

Be brave

Enchant the world

Light it up with your smile

Offer everything up to God

We rise

There I Am (Haiku)

There I am between

The moonlit twilight above

Ocean roar beneath



The End (Acrostic + Haiku)

Tracing stars above

Heavens undercurrents sweep

Erupting the sky



Erupting their lies

Native scenes born again by

Dark supernovas

Relive (Tanka)

Tidal waves break free

Mourning for their crescendo

Now the water is

Rushing in all sides divide

Splitting me like emotions.

Captivity

Built up walls around me isolation

dark matter of my own creation

Looking for answers in the constellations

reaching for breath without consolation



Capsized by an ocean of taciturnity

where the waves are seized by emotion

Receding shorelines - transformation

Hungrily devouring shipwrecked hearts



Here I am, held captive within

the calamities of your seas

I struggle in vain to break free

like the listless wild cries

In the oceans of man's debris

Empress

There is an empress

Waiting outside my window

Is she here to haunt me or



Is she here to set me free?

Ice Queen (Cinquain) +1

Does the

Spider's web still

weave around your frozen

lips while you dream of other worlds

in your



sarcophagus.

Shattersphere (Acrostic)

Shattering the sky with my wings

Here I am, no longer

Afraid of the pointed ends of your

Tattered stars - like scissors which

Tore at the seams of me

Erupting emotions

Rioting, bubbling up like

Shattered volcanoes within the

Particles of my soul

Heaving toward an

Epiphany

Reaching

Escaping.

Spark (Acrostic + Cinquain)

Splendor

Plays upon Earth’s

Atmosphere, like little

Radioactive children of

Knowledge



Speak (Acrostic + Cinquain)

Seasons

Perennial

Echoes speaking through time

Acknowledging the language of

Knowledge

Creation (Acrostic)

Charging through the

Radioactive atmosphere where specters

Emit clouds of light

And cloaks of darkness

Triggering the

Ionosphere to self-destruct the

Oasis of heaven, heaving it into

Nordic winters



Ash (Acrostic + Senryu)

Answer my war call

Silence breaks on edge of dawn

Heaven shaking free

Satori

Shatter the chemosphere

We're bound to get out of here

I refuse to surrender

My metamorphosis



Colored winter to deceive

Your spring counterparts

The chrysalis cannot be

Easily disengaged



When change has the reigns

The force is unstoppable;

An all-out charge for

The most elevated point of existence







Moments (Acrostic)

Mere moments

Objectify infinity

Minutes from seconds

Escaping - ethereal - forever

Never forgetting

The time it takes to

Save or doom a life.

Prisms (Acrostic + Rime Couee)

Prisms heave upon broken shores

Ready to break open the doors

Inciting the siren

Shattering earthquakes with my roar

Making what is mine, also yours

Surviving - sovereign

Spectrum (Acrostic + Triolet)

Sounds and color collide - unifying

Particles interacting, uplifting molecules

Echoes reaching through, defying

Colors collide - unifying

The force tying

Reality into rules

Unifying

Molecules

Chasing Time (Triolet)

Chasing time through the confines of linear

Hour after hour, how I beg, how I fear

Isn’t it enough that I am here?

Chasing time through the confines of linear

I want so badly to believe that we will persevere

But you keep me chained, as a mere souvenir

Chasing time through the confines of linear

Hour after hour , how I beg, how I fear

Nothing Left (Reverse Haiku)

The clouds in all their splendor

Weep into the sky

Nothing left but surrender
