apocalyptic sun

I see you in my dreams, you
speak in tounges
about

an apocalyptic sun
rising

over fields of wheat and ash
where

we last danced, and

flowers
have black heads of sand

a land of love
with skies of blood, and

rivers, our veins
connecting two worlds
into one

#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 20: Orange Sky, by Cassa Bassa

tonight the moon is blue
hung high over the ocean tide
murmuring love tunes
to stir up the calm water
within me

this blue flame
licking my already burning skin
reminds me of the orange Sky
we lay under

the texture of your shyness
the layers of my wanting
peeling off the first blooms
of our love
and eternal desire


Orange Sky was inspired by the poem Blue Moon. You can read more of Cassa’s poetry at Flicker of Thoughts.

#NatureSpeaks: 30 #Poems in 30 Days – Day 14: Butterflies Blue, by Shruthi Senthilkumar

Sometimes I think of them
As I rest in the sky
Glistening with love and pain
The oceans in our eyes.

And sadness comes splashing in
An ache on an aquamarine wind
The chill of the past, the tides on the whole
The diverging gushes of a waterfall soul

Yet right where it settles in
Is a cauldron deep within
From which a sapphire’s light bursts through
With the remainder of love and butterflies blue.

But sometimes I think of them
As I rest in the sky
Glistening with love and pain
The oceans in our eyes.


Butterflies Blue was inspired by the poem Butterfly Love. You can read more of Shruthi’s poetry at Read Up.

heart strong

the pale
and lambent sky
is dried

and full of mist

swirling in colors, made of notes
a song

adrift

in the east
where my heart is strong
and just enough

with you

the music of my life
and my one and only love

the tide

tired, and wanting to know
more

I cast my heart into the sea
and watch

as it stares back at me

winking, like the stars in the sky
making me realize

every ounce of the love we carry inside
belongs to the tide

rose sky

roses fill the sky
with the fragrance of the tide

as petals sing to the moon
under the canopy of our afternoon

know

there’s always been a piece of me in you

a mirror or two
reflects back our love

while we climb the ladder of chaos

still embossed
with an evening of frost

as we set off
on a journey to reclaim our love lost
