The Hourglass And The Clepsydra

Rating: 4.8
The Hourglass

At the edge of desert shore
Poured out of an hourglass
Would, I gladly, swoon to embrace
Such reveries that lie beneath,
A plashless mirror, shattered

The Clepsydra I

In versicoloured creatures' light
Are sunken castles, vitrified
Turtle Islands, appear from under
Leviathan bottles, have ships inside
Perdu plunder's interred in sand

The Clepsydra II

With aqua pura, ichorous now,
A celestial river laving me:
I clasp on ignes fatui,
Lounge upon a crescent moon,
View an ultra-violet sunset
