Five poems by Felino Soriano


Poetry

Scenes and Takes # 12, 1

Reading is speculative, comparative,

parallel

to designing cubist

paintings

atop

specialized marbles.

Dividing mantras

into syllabic

conceptual

prayers,

the modish

ritualistic callings for

aesthetic wants, endeavors.

Private knowledge,

the

intimate innate

solitude

handheld within

sensitivity’s methodology,

finds fortune to display

knowledge hitherto

inside

passion’s organic

version of learned multi-languages.

====================

Scenes and Takes # 18, 1


Water was motion, movement, mishap,

yet beauty. Called also

ambidextrous

for dual shadows

highlighted

falling

angular

and

parallel transparency.



Earth weeps.



Time laps its focal being,

uniting with

memory,

reuniting.

--------------------

Scenes and Takes # 22, 1


Coincidences occur naturally.

The simultaneous prefer livid

happenstance,

for humdrum

remains whitewashed,

drowned beneath the unending

finale of waves’ etcetera.

Burgeon is the form of existence

which never deceases. Newborn’s

electrifying first breath, mother’s

enveloping cry enabling satisfactory

companionship.

Scenes and Takes # 40, 1


I’m tired; I believed the dog

explained within an escape from

movement: a lying down lectured

to an owner whose copasetic feathers

lifted dispostional features

amid third person speaking,

bells attached to angels’ clich├ęd

white wings. Hacked at the legs,

bent paperclips. A code of disconnect,

an ensuing equation

containing mathematical

flaw. Indigenous to activity,

two created a fall toward one,

an inclination toward accepting

galaxy shifts motion,

emotion.

Oeuvres everywhere. Filled

half-existence, a glass of perfectly placed

water documents need to be consumed,

left to evaporate into inexistence. The

flicker of properly nourished flame,

positioned in partial vision,

hopping shadows envelop

night folded into

drawers of blinded

hours. World is transparent,

gray as vellum for the traceable

to be mimicked, echoed

with a stuttering,

writer’s hand.
