Wheels Of Fortune

Wheels of fortune
like sour grapes, apple
tumbling my spirits.
Spirits of fire, unflinching
A ball of reveries, undiscovered.
Musty halcyon, a penumbra of elixir.
A soft cushion, a soothing balm.
The nectar of hubris dreams, drooling
in the breeze, a nimbus of dark clouds,
an array of shooting stars,
Wheels of Fortune
play me, trick me, devour me.
desiccate my veins, coconut shreds.
For if I rise, the earth shall tremor
The sea, scorching Sempiternal my initials
The moon bending down, as my furtive solace.

  2. My favorite lines:

    “The nectar of hubris dreams, drooling
    in the breeze, a nimbus of dark clouds,
    an array of shooting stars,”

    Pure poetic and your wordage brings a language of the wordsmith itself.

    I’m so proud of you and this poem made me think in all types of interpretations.

    I see too that your vocabulary is building up. I love it. πŸ™‚
