Bible

featured in the poetry forum January 18, 2024  :: 0 comments

the sign of the cross
on top of the pyramid,
the arrival of the new God,
in the desert of the spirit,
the sphinx of death in tears,
the prayers of the apostles
of the new age,
the Bible in the hands of the pharaoh.

The sea of life

Candles
of lamp
wind
in the hair
Mother of God
prayer
disappeared
at the bottom
ocean
lullaby
eternal
searches
for immortals.

Obelisk

featured in the poetry forum July 31, 2023  :: 0 comments

Chained
by invisible chains
to a black obelisk,
they continued to live
in the desert
completely insane,
without a future
they are looking for God
in eternal glory
tracks in the sand.

Seeking sanity from the sand. – mh clay

Memory

featured in the poetry forum April 25, 2023  :: 0 comments

We are gone
they disappeared in the storm
at the bottom of the ocean
buried memories and feelings
of my people
dictatorship under the guise of democracy
imitation of life
bells of the last Christians
they ring in the mother’s arms
at the bottom of the ocean
where the memories are buried
of my people
who died
under tourist boats, police, scum of all kinds
with the permission of the state and corrupt politicians
the tears also disappeared
in prayer time.

How long must they hold their breath to not be forgotten? – mh clay

Christianity of the pagans

featured in the poetry forum December 23, 2022  :: 0 comments

Apostles of faith
in the shadow of the cross
at the top of the pyramid,
the remains
of temples
pagan symbols
In the ruins,
the last believers
of the doomsday,
endless rain
on the hill of Golgotha.

How we got from Tree to tree. – mh clay

Robert Johnson

At the crossroads
of life
he made
a pact
with the devil
and became
the blues alchemist
with his music
opens the gates
of heaven.

In the desert,
an abandoned church
cries
out to the gods
in the darkness
of time.

The shadow
on the land
the traces

in the thoughts

vanished
in prayer.

The church of the sea

featured in the poetry forum June 6, 2021  :: 0 comments

Sadness
in the hearts
of unbelievers
on the coast
of the Dead Sea
traces of sailors
in the shadows
of the waves
the church of the sea
in the mother’s tears.

The dead are resurrected in their tears. – mh clay

Saint
at death’s

secret
of eternity
in the grave hidden.
