Solitary portent descends
kisses a juiceless seed
Life waxing to awaken
in aromal ozone air

Vital giftlets illimitable
penetrate fertile earth
in ageless intercourse
Essence of ichor oozes

Shining soilโ€™s saturated soul
marinates in sanguine fluid
Damp dirt pungently exhales
as vaulted hues signal

    • Either you dig this or – taken literally – you’ve unearthed a touch of Heaney here ๐Ÿ˜€ either way, good perspective much appreciated thanks

    • I’m proud to have this feedback Bjรถrn but as for language I think nothing is more commendable than a poet using a second language to write his poetry – essay, story, article I can understand but poetry in a different tongue wows me so big kudos to you mate.

  1. Mike, This one is stunning… I love the poetic imaginary related to rain and its cycle. Beautiful metaphors and images. Thank you very much for sharing
    Best wishes to you for the week ahead, Aquileana ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Sometimes I seem to get the right Muse on the right day Audrey Dawn but your supportive words I can rely on all the time. For this I am very appreciative.

    • I confess that I resort to coining when my lexicographic ability fails parallefell – on some occasions it actually works well ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much for such positive feedback.

Whaddya think?
