Felino A. Soriano- Three Poems

from Espials


beyond where wind
                        at the wandering waist
its alabaster hands among dust and diligent fulcrums
of returning
                                    hopping leaves, spirals of
orange intertwine bodies

blue or blue/green
pertaining to perspective’s angled interpretation—

                                                                lists form
·         intuitive formations
·         found selections of
·         or finished nouns

whirling within paradigms
shaping with orchestrating
                                                    nuance dissolves amid this water’s
beginning crawl
fascination with
recalling devotion of breeze’s
fundamental figuration


running as do fumes’
verticality of mirrors
sensed and serene or
saddened when an
isolation transpires
tardiness of totality
is verbal in the context
of waiting’s deliberative


artistry of the fly


                         continued aerial
catapulting rejuvenated                        solace
watching as
waiting wanderers wander
within subliminal contracts
their prosodic eyes
sign into mis
fortune of future’s elongated trickery
