I Walk this Desert Land... Born of Stone Born of Sand

In This Desert I Walk Alone Born of Sand Born of Stone. In a Land Where Hope is Grown My Body Aches to Tell this Tome. Hannsjörg Voth’s grand Stadt des Orion (City of Orion) was built in the middle of Marha Plain, deep in the heart of Morroco. The poetic power of Hannsjörg’s “Himmelstreppe” or “Stairway to Heaven” to me speaks to our life’s journey. Much like Camus‘ Sisyphus, the action of rolling the rock up the mountain always seemed a sentence to bear. 

From Shakespeare's Pondering Prose, "What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?"

“What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?”

my soul is but a pond

longing to be a lake

my heart but a vessel

with pain it does ache

beauty bleeds in the window

opening my mind’s door

 light echos life’s legacy

for less is but more

I will take a sojourn

on a rapturous roam

of where I will write

this heartfelt tome

beyond the wild

and to the sea

my every will

is a fantasy

as light doth seek

a way to home

I’ll share my thoughts

of the vast unknown

Ache to Unleash the Hidden Beast – Poetic Prose Tanyajo

Ache to Unleash the Hidden Beast…

upon ye baron breast I yield

all life’s secrets borne to shield

from me to you and you to the

a common thread of travesty

my way from thou’st who bringeth well

a heartfelt wish to sit a spell

to ponder upon our deepest soul

thoughts that bare ye out as whole

a fond farewell, a silent night

a lilting lullaby holds us tight

oh dear one the dreams are done

a daintier notion has never come

hark the herald angels sing

glory to the new borne queen

The Lines of Lunacy Are All But Unleashed - Poetic Prose Tanyajo

Lines of Lunacy Unleashed…

unto this house

we will a home

living far inside

the palindrome

from back to front

it is the same

hiding inside

the sights of plain

revel in the garden aire

where hope is high

and love is faire

listless yearning

will all but bare

as silent dreams

doth take you there

poetic prose – tanyajo
