The Largus Wizard Dreamer by Rishan Singh

Rishan Singh 16 July 2015 a poem a day challenge, poetry Comments Off on The Largus Wizard Dreamer by Rishan Singh
Far away in heaven he lys,
a dreamer in daytime dirge.
Normal and humane, on Earth, he lives
with ignorant impediments,
crippling philosophical daymare-shields.

Far away in thought, his cover removed,
ideas and opinion quantified to antics
of ant-heap ants.
His soul-anticipation lures others to him,
but offensive-expressions others’ gesture-out.

His persuasive-flirtaé is convincible,
but soiled minds find him infinite and fiend.
Colloquial, but eloquent,
his simple songs singed to samples
undefined, unseemingly, now unfit;
like his simper.

His compulsion…

O’er words explode, like a volcano
too largus and complexum
to comprehend – as comprehensible
as his heart, a woebegone spirit,
far away in antiheavenly-thought.


The following words are latin:
Largus = generous
Complexum = embraced

Also note: Wizard implied a person with amazing abilities.
