The light doth shine

It shines – reluctantly
Gold piping around edges
curved lines:softened by the glow
mesmerised red eyes
drawn like moths
to a wide open plain
visible and raw
for all the room to see
with a limited time
patches of rainbow fog
just another symptom
another reason
for aversion
A way not to see
the blindingly obvious

Wooden Idols

Mouth gaping,

Jaws of oak

tower above lives

A portal-

into iridescent skies

faith of the unknown

an unsettling presence

and the barefaced shadows

of prayers left unsaid
