Sylt at Dawn (Satis Shroff)
You hear the waves As they splash onto the shore. You haven't opened your eyey, But you discern the cries of sea gulls, As you slowly let the sunlight Into your eyes. Ah, the reassuring rays caress your face, As you proceed to the balcony, Stretch yourself And let out cha-cha-cha, Pa-pa-pa sounds between your teeth, That you've learned While singing in your choir. A seagull with a fish in its beak Flutters by. All white and airborne, Twinkling on a blue…Continue

Lasting for an instant, today and tomorrow.
Oshun’s warm waters flowed over the steep tower’s edge.
Empty corridors swelled,
as amber ripples swam.
Adorned and rich.
Palpitating against its gates
His thirst quenched.
Eroding its structure,
dissolving its defenses,
Oshooon….went her waves,
seeping trough hidden chambers,
where casted dreams and fears…

The self-indulgent voice shot through me like a long arrow
Forcefully entering my mind piercing my will
Its stiff feathers scathing my heart as it brushed against my spine
causing it to burn
Running along my underbelly to my pit
Hoggish and virile
Drumming and pulling at my cords
Only to release and shoot back up with a cry
My mind left stiff and confused

The guilt weighed heavy on me
One of desire, the craving of love,
and the need for normal.
It pulsated hard through my veins and bled to my lips.
Now swelled and stained from each pull and tug.
How do you explain the guilt that you feel?
not related to me.
The disrobing of my dress, and revealed face
how do you explain the guilt that you know?
Opened wide, ready to give and now…Continue

No more complacent me
Understanding and peaceful talks has made this me
Put a fire in my belly
Fill it with the instability and unpredictability of it all
Like the feeling when first strapped to the chair
Heart racing with the clink, clang of the worn track
Gripping the bar as you anticipate the decent
Down the windy slope, stopping…Continue
