Lullaby of a Lifetime of Living Bliss (lessons in Cognitive ecstasy) There is a cognitive brilliance in Thought’s end at the edges of beauty How the last colors spilled In the pale air, the color of light That drink o traitorous beauty Again and again, so intimate Like the breath of a woman We knew that never seemed present Only just around the corner, so…

NaPoWriMo success and a great, big thanks!

Where I am right now (Sydney), only a few hours remain of the last day of April 2015. I’ve written and posted the 30th poem I aimed for at the start of the National Poetry Writing Month, dedicating myself to posting one poem every day for 30 days. This also means my personal challenge has been a success! It was daunting and exhilarating at the same time, mulling over words and […]

‘WE’ (NaPoWriMo 2015)   When time stands still, in the middle of our breaths, do you feel that single spark of energy that flows between the skin, like static that electrifies the lips and makes the hair stand?

‘HISTORIES’ (NaPoWriMo 2015)   We were twelve and the summers were long, when birds seemed to hum in rhythm with the silent passing clouds.   You touched me there, where the skin smelled of the sun, and told me of a fate only we could have foreseen.   We were nineteen and the rain fell for four straight days, when you said it was your destiny to place yourself beside […]

‘love like’

‘LOVE LIKE’ (NaPoWriMo 2015)   Love like there’s no air. Catch every single breath and behold every face, every object in space.   Love like there’s no light.             Claw through the dark             and grab the empty air,             pretend someone’s there.   Love like there’s no horizon.             Flail your arms around             and fling your body across,             like gliding through a ford.   Love like there’s […]

‘IDENTITY’ (NaPoWriMo 2015)   He had light brown eyes, and so did I. His skin was tinged olive, and so was mine. His lips shone red, and so did mine. When we merged, we got lost in each other. And so we each stayed where we were, where we can both shimmer in the flickering sun.   © ramon loyola 2015 NaPoWriMo (24 April 2015)
