Metronomes

Green leaves
Rushed to the
Sounds of
Ticking clocks
Like metronomes;
Scratching,
Scratching
Away.

laios01_400_04Grains
Collecting in
Deep furrows and burrows;
Tumbling, mingling with memories.

Crushed, silted
Shifting, blown smooth
By currents and flows
With purple plumes
And blackened fumes.

Smooth,shining,
Glistening under
The blue sky as
The orange sun
Dripped and trickled
Against the cool of his
Closed eyelids like
Honey.

The images
Flickering like
A silent movie.

Flared nostrils
Clenched fists;
He remembered
The blue frowns
And evil clowns,
Smiles curling
On cold lips.

Aromas
Of vanilla and
Bergamot wafting
Through the window.

He felt
The red lips
And olive pips;
The green leaves
Rushing to the sounds
Of ticking clocks
Like metronomes;
Scratching,
Scratching
Away.

In those
Deep furrows
And cold burrows
