THROUGH SNARLING HAILS OF MELODY

30

I

Dear poet, with lost morning’s eyes
Don’t churn too much beneath
Stranger skies, I know you explore
The Sun’s tipped wet stones
With derelict markings for your
Blinded guests, dear poet don’t

II

Harvest beauty too colossal
That this world looks ugly
Don’t mine secrets so subjective
That shift as bright virtual dungeons
The solstice calls you, and I feel
An epic dialogue remains in your Heart
Hidden and partly unsearchable

III

You to whom I can only know
In your writing, whose date is limitless
Ancient with yearning, dear poet
Priestess of the imaged Word
Unfolding floating islands of light
Don’t weep with the hieroglyphics
Of the daunting night, but unbetrayable

IV

Reply to the future’s day, Farewell
To the new amazements born of other minds
A metallic paradise could never reveal
Your incandescent nuances of naked whispers
That fresh with faith renew our intricate parts
Dear poet, your throat is the bridge
Across lifetimes of the gardened skies.

    • Thanks I was trying to seek an elaborately foreign architecture of vocabulary in this one. The title is taken from a poem of Hart Crane.

      • I think in my search for a transcendent and universal poetry, there is a certain ‘sternness’ that may come across which I’m sure alienates some of the more whimsical contemporary readers, but that’s more of a function of my cognitive make-up than any sort of style choice in my control.

  1. Wuji, These are just majestic
    … “An epic dialogue remains in your Heart
    Hidden and partly unsearchable”…
    “Dear poet, your throat is the bridge
    Across lifetimes of the gardened skies.”

    Thank you.
