BluePoppyHimalayasIn the spectral sapphire room
of her memento mori at Gangkhar Puensum
where the timbre weighs somnolent

and no human eyes ever behold her,
Ratridevi intones her nuanced song
a slow tempo fantasia of peace

painting vividly all imagined heavens
with an intensity of crepuscular delight
denaturing seams of star-trail dreamscapes

her semiotic enchantments, fragments of entangled
thought-forms in an unbounded universe beyond language
azure moon-glow midnights of another dimension

enduring wildness unfurls
snow leopard silence reigns
caesura between verses

thunder dragon roars an
ancient tongue of lost symbols
an imploding singularity of meaning

Ratridevi sighs her secret
descends from mountain peak to
soul-vale, bathed in violet light

Posted for Lynn’s excellent Poetics prompt at dVerse: Summit in Sight. This poem is a continuation of a poem I wrote in 2012: Lexical Shangri-La: Here be Dragons.

enraptured by the sea
we are entwining
glacial motion turn to
bellwether song

fractured whale bone
whistle frost pining
my cry echoes through
blue blind caves

phase shift thunder cracks
ruptures liminal border
escaping meltwater
liberates me

you must remain
icily taciturn,
resolutely still
