  1. I spoke to her
    that lady of Avalon
    in crushed blue and bands of polished silver
    before the wealth of Tintagel
    would make the land wealthy

    in lines of
    two, three, five, eight
    Day and night

    She said that she would make me a dias
    Safe from time
    Scarlet and Iron
    and I said I would wait for her return

    I sit on that bench
    Nearly hidden from casual eyes
    Still brilliant
    Floating in a sea of prose
    with the breeze separating each page

  2. Another Fairy Take Ends

    Continents apart day after day, “When you come back, I’ll be here.” I remember you said.
    I am standing here foolishly holding onto a distant promise soaked in the winter rain.
    The bench is painted red.
    Is it a sign for good luck or just man made passion to hide the worn-out memory?
    We need to be sure there is nothing left to say, to explain, to retain.
    Pain, I finally ready to let go.
    It shivers out of my heart into the cold

  3. Today I want rain
    something to make things slow down
    resetting this world
    truth is there is no settling down
    when pains run deep in souls
    but sleep, deep sleep
    cannot hurt sad souls
