Of binding and manifestation
Of rigor and struggle

Floating freely
Through dark spaces of time

Elucidation elapsed
Despair floods the sky

Noose of liberation
Defenseless deceit
Dragged naked and battered
Blood running cold


Excerpt from "Les Marais du Cygne"

Unwarned and unweaponed,
The victims were torn

From ashes beneath,
And the crown of his harvest
Is life out of death.

Not in vain on the dial
The shade moves along,
To point the great contrasts
The reeds of the Swan's Marsh,
Whose bloom is of blood!


Searching for hope
Dry breath and scarred hands

The plight of thy will
Scattered on land

Forced underneath
Through lifeless soil
Desolate grey, endless toil


from From Ashes Beneath, released August 20, 2017
