Will You Believe Me?

If I tell you I saw

blue suns shining
over the mountains
fragrant pines standing in awe
as clouds turn silver

pristine water reflecting
the sea-blue waves of Time
worlds behind the world
flowers within the flower

and through the veils of light
the beating Heart of Life
the beauty of Darkness
the stunning Secret of Death

will you believe me?

The Princess

sketch-for-a-mermaid

She breathes
and sailors smile or worry,
She sings
and mermaids dream or cry.

She poses,
and painters do their best.
Then she disappears after
she sprinkled stardust in their eyes.

She sometimes wears
a wedding veil
but every man knows
she will never marry

for she is
the King’s mistress.
The Sea.
Princess of the seeking Souls.
