Covenant

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

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

Rainbow
Shining soil’s saturated soul
marinates in sanguine fluid
Damp dirt pungently exhales
as vaulted hues signal
Covenant

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

    • I’m proud to have this feedback BjΓΆrn 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 πŸ˜›

    • 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 πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for such positive feedback.

Whaddya think?
