Sweet Succulence

Sweet succulence, tis that of making

Gentle in breath, majestic and pure

Such is found in tender hearts

Noble souls, and natural splendor

Eyes that hide the ocean tides

Soft, and sweet, beyond cognition

Alas, the dawning has been engaged

Now damsel, thou hath found rebirth

Listen hence, for nature whispers

Majestic winds cross mountaintops

Cascading flow of mystical streams

From below an enigmatic rising

Our astrolabe of great convergence

Tis time, this moment, a happening

My eyes are lost, but recognize

Eloquent curves, each such splendor

Placement true, each gilded hair

Finespun sigh, tis recognition

Endless light within your eyes

Our echoed lives on sweetened lips

Time permits, while beauty waits

Alas, the distance ever closing

While passion gathers, thoughts reveal

Another moment, tis certainty

Past surrendered, yet love remains

Lifetimes passage, tis countless time

Moments parsed for thou and thy

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.
