clouds

20150623_163828

spring time. the temple shrouded in moss.
the torii gate is slightly above ground level.
someone has tripped over the elevation.
but nothing more.

summer time. the temple is in bits.
the elevation is now a column that touches the clouds.
moss grows thick on its ridge lines.
no one trips over it anymore.

autumn time. the temple is coming back together.
things that look like arms. something like a head.
with a horn. four eyes. two mouths.
fears hidden amongst the maple leaves, swirling, and swirling.

winter time. the temple stands in fresh snow.
slabs fall, and fall. red grey flesh meets the open air.
eyes light up. it’s breath unfurls, and unfurls.
everyone watches in wonder burdened with terror.

massive hands ruffle through the clouds. again, and again.
and that’s all it does. plays with the clouds. rolls them up.
and out again. all night long.
everyone watches. all night long.

    I love these lines:

    “someone has tripped over the elevation.
    but nothing more.”

    “the temple is coming back together.
    things that look like arms. something like a head.”

    “red grey flesh meets the open air.”

    Fantastic ending:
    “and that’s all it does. plays with the clouds. rolls them up.
    and out again. all night long.
    everyone watches. all night long.”

    I like the seasonal verses with the same temple ~ It seems to have a different character in every season ~ Good one ~ And we would also appreciate it if you can visit a few linked poems over at D’verse ~

    Thanks for joining in ~

    I like the progression through the seasons. Very effectively penned.

    Like the linking of seasons to the torii gates… nicely done.

    The seasons have their way of moving us while we don’t move – don’t they?

    I love the idea of the temple as nature… For me that is truth. Lovely imagery all the way through.
