Saturn Peering through His Ring, Dreaming in the Dark

by Renwick Berchild

Ten thousand one wings in the lion’s ring,
Holy and houndish in pursuit from mountain;
Trembling are the shadows of the dogdayed age,
Widowed from the Summerland, adieu.

From steel beams brightness springs
Bringing vibrant, ephemeral life
To the skeleton being constructed
Across the station parking lot.

Muse of my morning

Restoreth my soul

~ Laten Years

by A. L. O'Prunty

Would that thou shalt love me in my laten years

~ Pieces of the Sun

by A. L. O'Prunty

As a child catching fire flies one by one

~ Persephone ~

by A. L. O'Prunty


The vale of Enna, where posies abound,
She tenderly plucks them from the ground,
Demeter as always, favors the soil,
With an abundance of growth that does not toil.

Oh sing a hymn to Demeter,
Suffer her anguish and pain,
Oh sing a hymn to Demeter,
Her Mysteries to obtain.  Her Mysteries to obtain.

An Arcadia sun dancing off ringlets so rare
Beauty and grace amongst bountiful reeds
Espied by that Satyr with beastly needs

that hammer upon the steel
and forge together
moon and stars
hopes and fears
and all that you can
in a moment.

Night has long fallen upon my sorrow
And Death steals away my tomorrow:

Wing-born deity of delta dreams
Cross your River of Oblivion
Where forgetfulness, liquified, flows
