Solitary portent descends
kisses a juiceless seed
Life waxing to awaken
in aromal ozone air

Vital giftlets illimitable
penetrate fertile earth
in ageless intercourse
Essence of ichor oozes

Shining soil’s saturated soul
marinates in sanguine fluid
Damp dirt pungently exhales
as vaulted hues signal

    • Either you dig this or – taken literally – you’ve unearthed a touch of Heaney here 😀 either way, good perspective much appreciated thanks

    • I’m proud to have this feedback Björn but as for language I think nothing is more commendable than a poet using a second language to write his poetry – essay, story, article I can understand but poetry in a different tongue wows me so big kudos to you mate.

  1. Mike, This one is stunning… I love the poetic imaginary related to rain and its cycle. Beautiful metaphors and images. Thank you very much for sharing
    Best wishes to you for the week ahead, Aquileana 😛

    • Sometimes I seem to get the right Muse on the right day Audrey Dawn but your supportive words I can rely on all the time. For this I am very appreciative.

    • I confess that I resort to coining when my lexicographic ability fails parallefell – on some occasions it actually works well 😀 Thank you so much for such positive feedback.

Whaddya think?
