A Different World's Colours

Time wraps her essence around delicate
freedom; inched quietly towards the sky,
dawn's delight ripples admiration's smile
as beauty slips a promised kiss to God.
Fingers throw wild escape from joint to joint
as light bursts into introspection's curl,
and I whip a delicious look across
the naked back of poetry's wisdom.
Inspiration snaps imagination
with a lithe movement that startles old eyes;
cool blue sparks of alternate existence.

Paper scenes rip shards of descriptive words
while knuckles crack the silence which lingers
in the cold corner of religious thought.
Spiritual crusades crash through the mind,
swords of truth and lies strike Heaven's wonder
as I tear sleep from the window's pale stare;
deformed by harsh birdsong's fluttered attack.

And I slide down the present's luminous
swirled patches with an incredible speed,
the future laughs at confused expressions
as a sigh somersaults across a stray
star's lazy winks of smooth buttered fast light.
This is the commotion of each new day,
asleep bubbled into throes of awake
while dreams lick the tips of motion's fractured
visions and I wonder where I have been,
another life perhaps on a different
world's colours that capture warm collisions.
