‘Rose Window’ and Other Poetry by Robert Walton The Society January 26, 2015 Beauty, Poetry Rose Window Firs at sunset cast golden geometries As myriad needles swarm like bees And burst into sun-kindled flame – A rose window without its frame. Falun Dafa Fingers curved like willow stems, Dancers bow before killers’ blows, Soldiers whose helmets bear red stars Soldiers whose eyes rage red stars – Over brown stones, bright blood flows From fingers curved like stems. Far Snows Wind in pines is with me Singing life’s small harmony With melt-waters and ice – Only senses now suffice. Sunlight glints on peaks black and torn, On blue snows where wind was born. Cock-robin on a branch nearby Awaits my smile before he’ll fly. Robert Walton is a writer, educator, and poet living in California.
