August Night

.
.
Dark night,
Hidden moon,
Stars blanketed,
Black sky,
Yet trees
Silhouette
Faintly shinning,
Ambient.
Lichens glow,
Luminous, pale
Green and pink.
The sand
A white path
Under palmettos
And smilax.
From beneath
The dark
Brambles
Two eyes blink.

Heavy, The Air

.
.
Heavy, the air.
Weary, the trees
Whisper their despair.
Invading miasma
Of crawling dreams,
Drifts, dense
With unremembered songs.
Heat oppressed,
Unseen Loa cry.
Intensely sweet
Their unheard wails
Are entwined,
Tangled,
In blue mist.
Eerie soup flows,
Thick with voiceless
Voices filling
Unrequited voids,
Empty of regard.
Leaves droop,
Breathless.
