On Easter Sunday

by Ex Libris Regina

easter

by R. Saint Claire

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.

To the hill where marble crypts
And busts of men (their ranks forsaken)
Rest in shades of obelisks.

From murky mounds to peaks of light
The falcon’s golden iris shifts.

Bright twinkle of stars and warmth of the sun,
Flotillas of clouds in Heaven’s fresh air,
Dark battles through which the brave hero becomes,
To all things amazed, my lover compares.

In the Red Tower
The planes mature
To a dance that beats
Red sausage links and iron ore.

ODE TO MELANCHOLY

by Ex Libris Regina

ODE TO MELANCHOLY

Saturnal turnings to woeful wooings,
Unrequited in a heart that aches,
Infernal dreams of despair imbuing,
Hopelessly tethered to past mistakes.

Within a dream the voice is real:
A shrill, struggling song.
A door in the floor, I open it
Unafraid and follow the sound.
A secret tunnel spirals underground;

Grown men tremble at the setting sun.
O’er the Carpathian mountain range
Among the forest where wild wolves run.
