where the black snouted night delved into hillside

a golden sun emerged tumescent and ablaze

behold a lilac lake of  blooming tree

a silver gallery of mirrored fish flash

untrammelled panelled oak soaked light of afternoon

the ritual of forest glen

the other time of men

now evensong is calling

vespers sung by lifes own hum

roaming through these star cracked places in new lothian

yes and my companions sloth and the crazed blackberry girl

my rubiest dreams of opalmarine

my sentient thoughts go running abreast in fields of teetering amethyst

the trappings of a despotic tyrant with my entitled free mantle

i explode in hyper semantic priming that pumped up jumped up mind machine

mind machine throwing it all together as quick as this

electrons interpenetrating  the very wall

we hear that old future call

    Sweetest despair can only be met with a knowing smile … it deserved nothing less 🙂

    the crazed bramble berry girl
    was happily freed into galaxy
    switched off and on and off
    trip trap trip trap
    said the troll under the bridge
    or was it the kid innocently
    tap toeing over?
    such sweet memories
    of stories of sparkling stars
    lolloping goats
    satisfying satyrs
    limpet on lime
    even emboldened golden
    afternoon extended arms
    returning to alms house
    relaxing into imaginary nest
    away from trap clap
    she loved best.
