A New Junicho - Forgotten Ruins -                                                                                     A Hundred Gourds 4:1 December 2014

 


                        Forgotten Ruins

                                      praying mantis -
                                      sporadic
                                      a sand dune sings


                                      
Moroccan Garden
                                      in oil, pencil and charcoal



                                      a cube of silence
                                      she weaves her pain
                                      into poems


                                      
forgotten ruins
                                      dressed in the veil of night



                                      wave by wave
                                      structures
                                      of togetherness


                                      
trapped in permafrost
                                      an ameoba swarm's signs



                                      
we change the side
                                      on Abbey Road



                                      coffered in his dusty cabinet
                                      the Iron Cross


                                      
child poverty,
                                      they do not look up
                                      from their soup plates


                                      tiny like toys
                                      fields below the fissured rock


                                      
the kingdom
                                      of heaven and ...
                                      noisy wind turbines



                                      gaps                        in our knowledge
