This fatal air

Bernd Jansons : September 9, 2016 10:04 am : Featured, Poetry

The air, it seems
(or oxygen precisely)
our science deems
will lead to death
of that
we can be certain
the more we breathe
the more the chance
we’re soon to leave
to face
the final curtain
so breathe with care
this fatal air
or else you know
you’re soon to go
where science cannot

Red Sun in the Morning

Bernd Jansons : November 20, 2011 6:09 pm : Featured, Poetry

Unsheathed at break of day in crimson flooding light
Sailor, beware the red sun coiling in the bearded morning dew
and know the eternal storm waits beyond the sweetly smothered berth
where dark dreams twist disturbed within the tethered chrysalis
and deep still waters rage monstrously to engulf the bladed spirit
whose choice becomes to drown of thirst or drink the salty brine
of unrelenting normality and endlessly miscarried expectation.

This Shall Not Pass

Bernd Jansons : November 2, 2011 10:24 am : Featured, Poetry

This shall not pass
Not while blood flows
Not while breath draws
Not while reason stands
But far beyond
As mighty waves
Claw and rip each grain of rock
Over eons of tide
Not until the last grain falls
Then and only then
Shall this pass!
