Sprays of colour lit the room
To bring a sparkle to the eyes;
Sharp aroma bit the air
To bid the sleepy nose arise!

And underneath, a subtle message
Wafted out of bloom.

Little need for empty scribbles;
Clumsy poems to reconcile -
Petals danced, sang in hues
To out his pleading in the while.

And for the cry to silken ear,
Her answer floated in a tear.

For Kipling!

I love those classical Kipling lines,
Bouncing, dancing off the page
In rhythm and rhyme – and all in time -
Inviting us all to thus engage

His flow of genius pure and blessed
In tales of life so riddled with grit,
And bearing souls with words possessed
With all the Master's heav'nly wit!

Forever His Fantasy

Ah! my crusade is now violent in battle,
Cloaked with a grimace and catching its breath.
How to avenge bold comrades that perished,
Playing their role of commanders in death?

He with the talons - that serpentine figure -
Hell-bent on slaying in clearance of man.
I'll counter with fury, my only response, and
Wither his power - the core of my plan!

Such is this demon, engulfed in desire to
Crush for no reason to play out this game;
Maybe I too feel a flickering fire in
Seeking revenge; oh this dragon to maim!

Hark! 'tis an enclave of minions from Hell! My
Sword gleams with lust and is desperate to slice.
Forward I thunder to claim Man's redemption -
Foes now relenting as I hack and splice.

So hail the advancement of circuits and RAM, that
Man may fore'er in his fantasy be;
His women might suffer long nights of his absence;
But he needs his violence - his own killing spree.

Gluons, Muons

As I drifted out of time,
Coalescing with a cloud –
Not with one from planet Earth –
I bore myself within a shroud
Of gluons, muons giving birth
To catastrophic undertones.

E’er I suffered, underfed, and
Lacking psychosymmetry,
To liquefy in rabid pain –
A misanthropic pleasantry –
Evanescing; nil in gain –
Oozing in a flow of zones,

Eking out a panorama
Underlain with horror drama:
Satan, as an Antirama,
Dancing in a fouled paijama,
Disinterring hallowed human bones.
