Images of Turkey, Hong Kong 1977


Solitary

Stars are paired
But the solitary sun
In the nemesis of the comet cloud
Never mind we’ll meet again
Even in fifteen million years time
Come solitary
Come pair

Vega star


Vega star is here
A billion years to stay
New among old and ancient
None alike like vega star
Too young to be
Older stars blink
With longer tales to tell
Galaxy

In two thousand one hundred one
Crabs still in love
Towns and towers in white sand covered
Nothing will change much
Except we shall be apart
Space of stars come close come far
Postcards still the same
More or less
Stamps and seals may change
In darkness love will revolve
More meteors rewind
Dervishes dance in spirals of love
In rotating dust
Memories

In warm clay lay
Fresh in prehistoric silence of time
Love is pieces in ceramic
AD or BC
Love is loud in touching
Asymmetrical in opposites
Forgotten legends of love
Remembered in calligraphy in inscription
In movement
Love dominated sultan and king
Nutshell

Overstepped the sun
In daylight I
Reverie bound
Impatient time tragic come
Purity is light authentic
Youth joy away immature
Whispers shatter in intensity
Old age will reveal late
All glories vain in the end
Failures hard compressed
Cracked in a nutshell
None

Wish tidal waves of monsoons
With precision come
Modes models sedate
Exigencies of love prevail
Love chaotic and didactic
Axioms true and false dictate
Love reduce universe
To one single line
Love mutable refutable
In despair love is
But futility of none
Six foot seven

I was six foot seven
In fairy tales
In cauldron of fire
Distances are aphrodisiac
Rhytms unwind
One spoonful of blood multiply
In billions of cell time
Love is infectious in august
In decanted renaissance
One short bit of loving
Desparate and daunting
Out of love
Gods fall from pedestals

Reincarnation

Voices reach the sun
In biblical bound
Drumming cadenzas torch like
Enchanter of smashed scales
Company lodged in truth and beauty
When death comes in the middle of laughter
Punctuation of heavens
Love is reincarnation
