Red Peace ~ Pink Heaven

ɣ       ɣ       ɣ

Fuzzed red circles of light

a metaphor of blind rage

a melting pot seething

a cauldron, volatile and ugly

a latent volcano of emotion

emptying from within


The fuse is lit burning brightly

the bomb is set

feelings pressed hard tightly

you never knew these thoughts

you never need the purge

the abstinence of envy

may hide the seeds of rage



Your perfect form and delivery

your calm, untroubled exterior

you’ve never raged within

~ Christian!

I once spoke these words

a symbol then of form and hypocrisy


We all hate ‘the christian’

we all slate his integrity

his shapeless, righteous deeds

vacuum light and need

we all slate ‘the christian’

we all laugh the creed

the holy grail, the pilgrim trail

we hyenas, we natural dreamers

we laughing, cackling, hateful schemers

.. and who are we?

.. and who the christian?

.. who do we own?

.. and who the teacher?


Crazed, marble, statues

relics from the past

hewn from the earths ore

we the clay models

fashioned, formed and modelled

the grey dawn beckons once

the rosehip skies

the cream-puff clouds

the silhoette trees – dark and blue-green

against the sparkling morning


No more ‘the christian’ will need to hide

in beds of white and linen

no more the proof he proffers

of noble deeds to silence scoffers

he is creation, his ideas New

his beginning amidst the popular view

he has struggled as the limpid pupae

of some terrestial force

and now born of an umber earth

of rich, dark colours and subtle hue

not protected, nor frozen

in timeless space

but breathing fresh, the air of life

he may lay indeed exhausted

on his bed of ease and rest contented

    Love the imagery and the expressions of frustration. All in a backdrop of natures tempestuous temper; a mix of anger and glory.
