Adamant Forms


Where do you hide behind the eyes?

In the earthen dens you extend

Like spiral stairs I rush to ascend

On hands and knees, in dreams

Starry eye’d, voracious

Stark naked, selectively submissive

Who is he that wakes the gates?

Clutching at my thighs

The way hawks do the pines

In the moorlands of your moods

Where does the feral reside?

With foxes furloughed in autumn

A sanctum of badgers and bluestem

Furrowed, unpredictable

Virile, colloquial

Who is he that orchestrates the storms

In your most adamant forms?

An alchemist in the stance of the pugilist

Dogwood, smoldering

Concentric, endless

And when will you commence

Tongue kissing my mind, again?

  1. When hearing your voice reciting those words of beauty.

    I picture animation…the metaphor of staircases swirling is enough
    to bring forth characters in their universe. Exploring every depth
    of life, destiny, and mystery. After all, us humans have so much to grow
    and find that purpose in us all.

    My favorite of yours, April. 🙂

      1. You are welcome my friend. 🙂 My mind just light up with that idea of animation sequence and I observed well enough to capture your work with my interpretation. 🙂

        P.S I posted the last anagram riddle. Only one guy figured it out. 9 more to go. It’s easy this time around. I find a way to give good simple clues.
