sacred breath

for years
sacred breath
Earth listens

on its shoulders
bears burden
who’s not dull – prosper(?)

spirit digs deeper
prolific writing
act now

in every touch
a streaming conscience

hidden crossroads
under the water’s
magnifying glass

am I still on the right path?
washed away

summer solstice

summer solstice
daydreaming in your arms
mountain river

over the hill
the longest sigh
2 small rocky stacks

golden rays
polish the cliffs
the bald eagle-guard

summer solstice
over the hill
golden rays

Music of the Andes

La Lluvia
the rain over a hill
your feet are wet

down to the valley
 flute sounds mingle
with the clouds

a tale

in abyss
I flew…a sigh…water-
fall, I’m trying recall
the valley, sunlight
drifted in slits
musical beats
as patches,
the singer’s hand
frivolously touching strings,
the tale of not return,
the sound of
angel wings…

...from the place invented within...

Sheening thought streaked across her forehead
beamed each item on the long-long ‘to-do’ string list.
She looked around, still ‘from the place invented within’…

life is the game
it’s simple

The Lady with the Lamp

Florence Nightingale, the Lady with the Lamp, c.Kristjaan P.

the Lady with the Lamp
small steps to rescue
century’s wounds

called under God squad vault
the Angel of the Crimea

a better place

kids fight for
a bag of candy,
the power sprouts
a chain
under the school
pressure, tip
‘stay simple’
the sage whisper
in meditative voice
ranking  a better
place over the veil

bare branches

bare branches
a painting against the blue sky
leaves under my feet
                             © Yozakura, the Wandering Spirit

bare branches
after long winter
a crow builds a nest

a painting against the blue sky
celestial canvas
keeps light

leaves under my feet
the last fall memory
lawn mower song

talking river

sun's kissing the silky sky

remembering path...

When trying
bleeding your path
left goes first,
right remembering
persisting to face
for how long?
until pain overcome
releasing it
moaning loud

the neighbors' sigh
in turmoil
what she’s up to
kids keep playing
a cacophony of ‘I am’
tongue touches
the top palate
thoughts disappear
who knew it’s
silence inside

white noise,
mentality spikes
and ready for
to clear the soul
eternity river
returning back to a body
it’s cold, it’s odd, it’s cracked,
the holes sigh
hey, you, what the 
light you brought,
we burnt it

The mark of spring

Late chirping call able to startle
the rinse of weary sunset
mingling with clouds
filtering the charm
offered by sky artist...

Dark-eyed Junco, 
the family of sparrows,
on the thin limbs
announces its departure,
tries the last bit of grass seed,
and disappears…

Spring has come.

Stray, it was trying to hide in a hollow of the tree.
But only for a moment.
Agitated magpie aimed with a half-rusty spoon in its mouth turned the refuge for lonely wanderer into farce.

3 bottles of champagne

The doctor. White solitude. Who knew: inside – a poet & artist.
“No emotions”, - she says while noticing 3 bones-models, colored as a bikini, on the shelf. –“Do you know what I see? “– doc turns, then grinning back in her wetted eyes…

3 bottles of champagne
ready to explode
trapped emotions

...its lips give to drink...

Life fragments
scattered in pain
through the chambers
heart purifying love
a ripple: is that a risk or a chance?

eyes move
the pressure on
who said:
be prepared
when retrograde
Mercury- friend
come as a refrain
to remind
the old,
thought gone,
from the past
recurring, did
they pass? no,
they – in the dream
watching you
chop the new
contrary to ream
piled on
the shelves, closets
filled in eve
the spreads
they talk of lessons:
where did you
give your power
loosen the chain…

I see there a train -
wagon by wagon
ordnance in
innocent arms...
a bolt from the blue... -
a burst!
and muted silence...
a menace built-up
in the sky...

Earth moves

Who cut the ground
under my feet
the earth moves
the pillars of truth

my old friends
hold hands apart
who’s wrong with me
eyes look within
the strangers…

collecting the thoughts
the purpose they seek
by a foot of the hill
meeting the souls
