Another new duet partner.ย  Thank you for writing with me Matticus

Also, I am using an image I found of an artist named Khaled al Saai, who is incredible and I hope you check out his art site by clicking on the picture.


Calligraphy by Khaled al Saai

Written by Matticus and HastyWords

The ‘sphere, smooth, invitingly gleams,
Word by word, clean, I loose my waltz,
Rise and fall, elegant, a dream,
But the story spins, discord, the music halts.

The atlas upon which I had always spun,
Stood silent inside these forgotten halls.
Upset tapestries billowed curses at the sun,
As shadows wrote blasphemy on my walls.

Steps falter, unknown, across the floor,
Balance shifts, lost, gracelessly flails,
The line breaks, shattered, spills out its moor,
The written dance, chaos, slips the rails.

Rusty tears free form into a manic dive,
Smearing stains, blurred arcs, finding rest;
A spilled ache of a hundred voices strive,
Inside inkblots transformed into art, expressed.

The soulful song, lilting, starts anew,
From single notes, haunting, to stringing chords,
The telling story, beauty, haltingly renews,
An elegant, hasty and royal, waltz of words.

Flawlessly the final rhymes find their lures
Reckless abandon, sprinting into heavy clouds
Choosing, sorting, and rearranging characters
Raining poetry, soaking an applauding crowd
