Scent of Wet

Scent of wet

greenery and camomile

sting lush at night.

Tropical intoxication

brought to life by rain passed

and forgotten

Dream Sequence

Dream Sequence

Misted evening
David on his terrace
watching two men .
one his soldier ,
the other friend ,
across and down the way
on neighbouring terrace .
Red wine drips
from both their lips
at a perverse table
of their words.
Suddenly Bathsheba
naked  In the thick
and sultry  
air of night
only to quickly disappear.
He feels her nearer now.
The sickness  in his loins
grows and sets
in his heart.
The sun
is tempted .
Further up the One
and knows
outcome of it all .
