~~~ Equinox ~~~

Updated on August 5, 2013

~ Equinox ~


V1/ Lactescent lunar eye, quiesced upon striated hills,

To wink her last, divine farewell, beneath the gloaming, calm and still.

Fillet clouds appear pallid; stairways lead a furtive sun,

Nature stirs her mewling tones, yesterday has been undone.


V2/ Carnations, sweetly peeping, ‘neath a dozen eyelids, weeping

Of aurorean, early dew, below a placid Alice blue.

Desert of looming visions, glaze a harvest paradise,

Revelations of their mission, adroitly staring, more than thrice.


V3/ Lemonade with cakes, bazaars and multi-coloured fetes,

Bleeding hearts of tarts and vicars, delighting bounteous strawberry pickers.

Children skip, collecting sweets, cows and sheep, must moo and bleat;

Girls and boys are talking brash, mouths writing cheques their form can’t cash.


V4/ Lo, the mournful winds now whistle, into a sad, untimely surge,

As they whip a tuneful dirge, across an empty grassy verge.

Nether roots of ancient trees, do weave the bones of those long dead;

Aloft, two lovers, amidst ensemble, triumphantly shared, be duly wed.
