Winter’s spell

Winter’s spell

There is an ill light coming with the sunrise,
scattering bitterness over the mountains,
unwillingly setting the green on flames.
How inevitable is the agony of the sky and
the fall of the leaves reciting ballads!

A loneliness, a despair creeps out,
verifying the dismal perfume of a frozen soil,
striving to recognize the glory of the world.
The ashes of a fire place, the death of sunflowers
how they stab the innocence in every smile!

I pace, madly, crying over my squandered tranquility,
like a moon letting its brightest star depart.
I’m thinking, seduced by the spell of winter,
disabled by the empty waltz of snowflakes,
irrevocably craving the sweet kisses of summer.

Quintessence of soul’s crime

“There is a way to be good again.” from the film, The Kite Runner

This poem is a collaborative effort inspired by a mutual love of both the book (by Khalid Hosseini) and the film, The Kite Runner. If you have not enjoyed them yet, we recommend that you do … two thumbs up!

QUINTESSENCE OF SOUL’S CRIME

by

Jamie Dedes / Musing by Moonlight/ and Blaga Todorova

Between the snow in crimson and
crippled conscience, abject soul
I paint a perfect escape tripping
on the dry weeds of my disgrace

I let fall any strength of good will
whatever shards of honest force
and bit the cold concrete of my essence
for the wretched glow of a Judas’ kiss

Tears drip now from my guilty heart
My mind constricts again and again
with the saline threads of this life
of jealousy, your love and light gone

Lost, so lost in the mists of that guilt
Judas stomps the flayed tatters of spirit
the rhythm of his boots on the march,
to a strange world, to rude escape

The nights here dance on starred paths
and a heart ignites the days, framing
words, scenes, and stories that heal me
of the shame, dissolving the old sins

Integrity then found anew on the ground
where once we played in love and now
seeded to me in the son you left behind
the light of your spirit rejoices mine
