Cloudburst Cogitations #3: Thunder and Lightning

Don’t quarrel so, my little thunder

For the lighting, oh, she only jests

When she teased youthful sounds

Cascading sharp onto coastal west

.

Don’t brag now, my little lightning

For the thunder, he adores you so

In awe of the illuminations brazen

And together you make a fine show.

The Conviction of the Moon

Those firmament tears were amber

As it crystallised in its fragile grasp

The stars witnessed that November

How the sun drowned with no gasp

.

The crowns of their empire shatters

The stars beseeched their trial runs

Jury of the solar system in smatters

Proclaim against that deathless sun

.

The court adjourned and it abjured

In flagrante delicto, they were sure

They have a case against the moon

Ex gratia, a saturnine arcane gloom

.

Order! Objection! A recess! I’ll hear!

Oyez oyez taken to deaf stone ears

As the crowd accused, opinions nil

Sneered at the convicted, little thrill

.

Reconvene the order of the audience

I repeat, the moon said, gall cadence

This is a bum rap, I divorced the sun

I’ll appeal, you’ve got the wrong man

.

The opposing side argued to the end

We lost our lights, a beloved friend!

I’ve no time for liars, I declared war

When you killed off a beautiful star

.

Both sides were taut, horizons grey

It seemed they will not finish today

Yet the murder weapon is procured

Lunacy, a sickness from lunar word

.

The gavel slammed the wooden slab

Ringing in that silent courtroom hub

I thereby sentence you to your exile

From the milky way, until you defile.

.

The moon, taking its fate, left home

Before he stepped down, his lesson

Caught smug mouths of the rallying

The stars cried, their planets glaring

.

I loved the sun dear, she was my own

Yet I was blinded by a foolish weapon

As asteroids rain, I will refuse a nudge

I shall let the universe be my only judge.

To Augustine

Mien of Augustine

Eyes so aquamarine

Fell hair turpentine

Visage serpentine

.

Wiseful Augustine

Heart indoctrined

Mind crystal clean

Old soul hid within

.

My fairest Augustine

You were my Sistine

My painter’s pristine

Glassblower’s gleam

.

An apex Augustine

A miasmatic welkin

Cynosure demeaned

Stark mise-en-scéne

.

Company’s Augustine

Illustrious at the seam

Stars in the higher levin

Yet sardonyx in chagrin

.

Dear sacrosanct Augustine

In darkest garden evergreen

Rose Eden’s shallowest skin

Vox nihili, you’re our original sin.

Peaceful Space

I like Darkness;

His cool breath giving me a slight chill

Yet strangely giving off a spark of comfort

Making me forget about everything else, all the pain I once had

His hands covering my crying eyes

Shutting off this world of discord and chaos

So that I do not have to worry

And there is nothing but the brightly twinkling stars,

And the chirps of the crickets to guide me.

~*~

I am comforted by Silence;

Her soft tranquility cradling me slowly

The slight ringing in my ears,

My ever-beating heart,

And my soothing intake and outakes of breath,

Are all that I could hear.

And there is no screaming, crying, pain, nor confusion

To disturb Her neverending peace.

~*~

But what I really love

Is Darkness and Silence together

When They finally meet and pair up despite Their fates

With my eyes shut down

And my ears drowned out by that white noise

There is absolutely nothing to distract me

So no matter how loud the screams of the demons are

I wouldn’t be able to hear

And no matter how much destruction ensues around me

I wouldn’t even see.

Empty Void

I resent Darkness;

His coldness enveloping me

Leaving my mind in a cold stupor

His tendrils suffocating my breathing

Smothering, cutting off, blocking the flow of oxygen

Blinding my consciousness completely

So that I could not see

And I’m left with nothing but the biting cold and loneliness

And my own numb hands to guide me.

~*~

I despise Silence;

Her emptiness breaking me

The endless ringing in my ear,

The quick pounding of my heart,

My own heavy breathing,

And the false insanities that fill up my mind

Are all that I could hear

And there are no words nor any other noises

To fill the empty nothingness.

~*~

But what I really abhor

Is when Drakness and Silence meet each other

When He meets Her, and together they play

Both my senses are suddenly lost

My eyes and ears are rendered absolutely useless

And no matter how loud you scream and cry

There is no one that will hear

And no matter how much you grope around blindly

Trying to look for someone

You never will.
