Sangiam Yarangsee, The Dusk, 2011

In Dusk’s Furnaced Embrace

As evening’s setting

Sun dips and disappears

Behind the melting horizon

The ocean hushed

Listless lies

Day vanquished

Submerged ’neath the

Bleeding surf

Heaven’s dark skied

Moonlit clouds

Emerge

Dancing to

Night’s ancient song

Stars in unison

Spill their silver frosted

Spells upon the

Shoreline’s

Stretching sands

Soothing soft

Lulling Earth to sleep

Ad Infinitum – A dead man’s response…

A poem in response to Sompong Adulyasaraphan’s painting, Story From Koh Kaew Pisadan

Sompong Adulyasaraphan, Story From Koh Kaew Pisadan, 2004

 

Ad infinitum – A dead man’s response…

In deepening darkness

As the tumbling cratered

Moon and Earth’s trajectories

Disintegrated into chaos and

Their complete dismissal

From the universe was

Sewn

In those fatal final moments

When dense dusted

Clouds bathed in toxic haze

Lazed listless in

Leaden shoals and

Drifted un-netted

Towards an unforgiving

Fume filled horizon

Of vengeful denuding rains

 

At sulphured shorelines

Shrivel edged

Where surging

Sulphuric surf convulsed

In the ocean’s

Concluding throes and

Bled into the

Suffocating sand

Time unlaboured

Unwavering trod

Silently solitary

Leaving no trace upon

The decaying land

Where hope once oozed

Verdant and life abundant

Burst fruitful forth

 

Amid the planet’s

Concluding breaths

From beneath the

Empty sunless sky

Ogred death’s shadow

Pungent ripe

Cast upon

Earth’s pus pocked

Disintegrating crust

Life’s final passing

Piped clear

Enweaved within

A malformed embroidered

Skeletal tapestry

Of nought but

Barren broken landscape

 

Putrefied shorelines

Stench crowned

Bleach boned jewelled

Man’s existence

Long eradicated afore

Unremembered

Earth bathed in devouring

Acid soured seas

Suffused in a fading fetid

Phosphorescent glow

Of vapour withering

Rainbow haunting hues

The universe implodes

Wombed in millennia of

Self destruction

Creation’s destiny fulfilled
