Camille Martin



leafís home

 

gaze in thee

deeply

 

with its brook

its small own sky

leafís home were window

 

flowers touched

melt

 






bells

 

pensive wheel blithes
bees in bells unto doom
 
sundry plot needs be
who find as one has

 

 






songs

 

wild arch

less round
 
ē
 
happy air stirs
from the image
of a lake

 






†††††††††††††††††††† soft orb

 

†††† soft orb†††††† scudding meek

†††††††††††††††† gushing borne wave to stars

deeply

††††††††††††††††††††††† fair the pearly†††† while

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† bidden amber

††††††† clash the morrow

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† a holy fence due

†††† like vapor springs

 

††††††††††† ††††††††††† rippled

††††††††††† ††††††††††† perishable

 

†††††††††††††††††† wooing nether

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† and shifty story

 

 






heaven flakes

 

heaven flakes or sleeps lakes

roams and plods wide height seeking name

clear for doorís far-off thoughts

blesses rugged wheels above straggle

as now greets measured gleamís

slow rock with breath

along falling foot from ringing evening round

 

round harvest illumines lazy music on cliffs

household sky voices blue ray

slowly traveling forth sound of early adieu

near plotís powerless murmur

lures undeserted woodís steep glow

joins human comes and goes

starts drowsy maddened gaze

 

each calm sloping lull

scorns glistening sleep

or stretches here and there boldly human

to upbraid over wastes

bells††††††††† pines††††††††† domes

shrivel desolate skies

 

wildly rains a sudden form

with golden burns overawed

while ancient sigh falls other minds to wave

where motion breaks a planetís blaze

beyond bewildering snow

 

bred afar awful worlds trace the sky

wail into blue a stranger with sight

and louder they go

and hear mountains tremble to the bellowing herd

who cross in time timeís lingered frozen gulf

with humble knells seldom round its mind

 

forms guard holy flashes

connect where fields of baffled bright hoard

glance heavenís nest of haunted light

pain still shines that human wilderness amid feet

 

glad feet press rocks

revel where marvels cheer to stray

lonely on dank sweets of shared

presence through clouds to wound

nightingales till night eyes wing

where glide blue streams

with ripening land

where new air ceases reasoningís first dew
