Camera Obscura

mind the mind

                                 when skin lacks depth

feet rebel against shoes

                                  shoes rebel against feet

walk along the edge

                                 of el caminito del rey

it takes seconds to die

                                 it takes more to live

think about yourself

                                the lens is focused

beauty lives

                                4 adventure

digital thoughts

                                will not be recorded

vistas are blind

                                you need to wear shades

camera obscura

                                puts 10 years on beauty

time overate

                                what fate prepared

twists take turns

                                turns take twists

the canyons

                                still remember

the holes

                               of holiness

málaga agalam     málaga agalam     málaga agalam

agalam málaga     agalam málaga     agalam málaga

 

 

Night Whispers

night whispers – listen closely – come in – the door’s obsolete

in stillness – sounds know more than you – when time travels

thoughts fly more than the speed of light – imagination’s

another spectrum – he demands more than attention

close your eyes – insight sees more than light – listen closely

night whispers – the door’s obsolete – come in – sounds know more

than you – in stillness – thoughts fly more than the speed of light

when time travels – he demands more than attention – imagination’s

another spectrum – insight sees more than light – close your eyes

come in – the door’s obsolete – night whispers – listen closely
