G O D D E S S

  VIGILINE


 


 


 


 

-1-

life

we

must once hold

realms to

the

prelude of death

preferences we

should

hold none


 

-2-

when love

is

true

it is

blacker

than

midnight


 


 

-3-

among the trees you are the greenest

between the flowers you are the prettiest

among the poems you are the sweetest

between the songs you are the loveliest

among the rocks, the one I lean on

between the sunset, the day I long for

among the birds the one who flies highest

between the stars the one that sparkles


 

-4-

how lonesome you are in that

warm blue ecstasy

warmer than a first

kiss on valentines .

this crescent curve

the joy of my days, your sweet

respite more desirable

than the sun at its zenith


 

-5-

oh, pretty little flower

little tender rose

how resplendent you are

in this broken vase

for my true love

where she may give

you water

that when she sees you

smiling she remembers


 

-6-

in the re-awakening

we discover ourselves

besides the face

of the 21st century

upon her raft in the ocean

drawn into the bossom

of the watery earth

until

my twilight zone


 

-7-

for the joy that she brings to me

for the attractiveness that attracts me

for that cute little smile

for that queenly bearing

for her understanding

for her elegance

for the love that flows

for the intelligence

for her delightful nose

for the etiquette

i’ll always be true to her


 


 

-8-

she’s a flower that blooms

every hour

my blazing anthurium

her tassels flicker

violet and amber

against my verdure stem

summer zephyrs chills

our trembling attire

leaving trails onwards


 

-9-

here

she

comes

swaying

upon

a melody

so

gracefully

finally

we

join

in

rev

el

r

y


 

kneeling before her presence

my altar of flesh

together we offer this innocence


 

-11-

my fountain, my beloved

her heart an open book

our light illuminates our dream world

overlooking scott’s head

she reads our favorite poems


 

-12-

then

we fell free from fear

that this sudden descent

would end

in an

emerald pool

that our day

dreams

are made of


 

-13-

and

then

time

was

swept

from under our feet

where nature once reigned

green and

supreme

kissed

our hungry eyes

on

moon-less nights

mountains stand stripped

tawny

as

mahogany

rivers

now dry as sticks


 

-14-

that morning we woke

to another day as if it

was creation morning

the

sun shone shining golden

just for us

we felt its ebullience

for the first time


 

-15-

waves

breaking

on

her

face

clouds

floating

in

my

eyes


 

-16-

records and novels

cups and saucers

streams bubbling

over rocks, to the

arms of my beloved


 

-17-

listen!

how she tells of

mankind

why the moon goes round

the earth

because jah made little girls

from spring

but little boys from surf


 

-18-

we thought to boast of

our special friend

ever so sweet. Sweeter

to us than our skin

ever so sweet

nearer to us than

our shadow

ever so close

we thought to boast of

our special friend


 

-19-

in

perfect solitude

the self

dives

into

the self

this peace, this serenity

blessed are

you

children of God.


 

-20-

she requesting

poems of friendship

speaking the

language of the kingdom of love

I with wistful face

yet

brighter than bright

meander through

little poems.


 

-21-

behind the rain-forest

lies a genuine soul trading

counterfeits for sweet little lies

such honesty from a captive spirit

an imprisoned spirit

an imprisoned self yearning to release

from this human jungle

mortal biped chained to a lamp post

squatting in shafts of immortal light

we witness victims of their own deceits


 

-22-

the heart that knows depths of love

may never be deceived

no matter what befalls the heart

it softly onwards proceeds

beneath the reefs, through rugged rocks

beset by sudden storms and gales

for only they who truly love

may survive these joyful pains


 

-23-

some crave experience

plunged into death-traps

only

the sagacious escape

some

fabricate alibis

encountering maxims in

crushed hearts

waiting endlessly

to release the law

to set the life-blood

free


 

-24-

can one purchase friendship

save it for a rainy day

do friendships forgive and forget

endure all things without regret?


 

-25-

i’m all alone

just i and I

maybe

because that fate

has alighted on me

i

wonder

what goes on in

your juvenile mind

for indeed

i

know

you are all alone

too


 

-26-

my loving respect that’s all

i want to give

forget your troubles tonight

it’s price is high above justice

forget your riches tonight

place your bodies right next to mine

forget your privacy tonight

come let’s build a home together

forget your loneliness tonight


 

-27-

i beloved and i

listen to the power of

the wind’s triumphant

serenade

as we linger

for the final climax

we kiss

then

turn our

backs on yesterday


 

-28-

without her

i can do nothing

without her

my spirit is weak

without her

a fish out of water is safer than me

without her

i am a lost continent

without her

days are kilometers of sand

without her

evenings grow colder

without her

this life is a snare


 

-29-

the

burden with

youth

is

that we hardly perceive

until enlightenment dawns

ALBERT WILLIAMS


 

-30-

i

man

born of woman

a

sugar apple

invented from the steak of

an angel’s breast

wings

of one bird soaring

heaven-ward

a

single hand

stretches forth

touching

the
