Camille Martin

leafís home


gaze in thee



with its brook

its small own sky

leafís home were window


flowers touched





pensive wheel blithes
bees in bells unto doom
sundry plot needs be
who find as one has





wild arch

less round
happy air stirs
from the image
of a lake


†††††††††††††††††††† soft orb


†††† soft orb†††††† scudding meek

†††††††††††††††† gushing borne wave to stars


††††††††††††††††††††††† fair the pearly†††† while

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† bidden amber

††††††† clash the morrow

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† a holy fence due

†††† like vapor springs


††††††††††† ††††††††††† rippled

††††††††††† ††††††††††† perishable


†††††††††††††††††† wooing nether

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† and shifty story



heaven flakes


heaven flakes or sleeps lakes

roams and plods wide height seeking name

clear for doorís far-off thoughts

blesses rugged wheels above straggle

as now greets measured gleamís

slow rock with breath

along falling foot from ringing evening round


round harvest illumines lazy music on cliffs

household sky voices blue ray

slowly traveling forth sound of early adieu

near plotís powerless murmur

lures undeserted woodís steep glow

joins human comes and goes

starts drowsy maddened gaze


each calm sloping lull

scorns glistening sleep

or stretches here and there boldly human

to upbraid over wastes

bells††††††††† pines††††††††† domes

shrivel desolate skies


wildly rains a sudden form

with golden burns overawed

while ancient sigh falls other minds to wave

where motion breaks a planetís blaze

beyond bewildering snow


bred afar awful worlds trace the sky

wail into blue a stranger with sight

and louder they go

and hear mountains tremble to the bellowing herd

who cross in time timeís lingered frozen gulf

with humble knells seldom round its mind


forms guard holy flashes

connect where fields of baffled bright hoard

glance heavenís nest of haunted light

pain still shines that human wilderness amid feet


glad feet press rocks

revel where marvels cheer to stray

lonely on dank sweets of shared

presence through clouds to wound

nightingales till night eyes wing

where glide blue streams

with ripening land

where new air ceases reasoningís first dew
