Three Poems by Felino A. Soriano

crafted listening amid a sole desire to connect movement

psithurism's hands, lengthened
portending jazz in/on the wing of a moment's
elongated fathom:

silence becoming
staccato, searing cadence
inward then
the exhale burns a breathing
letter, altered into
plural as the pleasure
respells noon's navigating
interpretation, watching shadows;
kneeling, as with faith, the darkness
echoes outward, tapering into fade
and the gradating meaning within
an hour's algorithmic perception


this elder canoe, abandoned
                                                                        sound (ache) swollen in
                                        the fraction
of its fractured
how many bodies carried a laughter here?—

young, when young
which directional hand held
the smooth belly of its mobile                                   spectrums?— designed
outward curiosities amid the search for
delivered seasons?

in wondering
           wander entrusts imagination's focal

                             recreating purpose of the aged absolute, its body
                       building toward use of the eyes' multilingual hands

Toward a Solitary Watching

various techniques of
communicatory revelations:

birds etch to be abstracted
                               woven wandering
wears angles of augmented thread as                    reflectional
weather mirrors intentional warmth
           in the cold of winter's adhering temperament—

differences sing or live in the quietude of recovery, these
voices aren't the weary tiredness of late night fumbling
of fundamental rest—

as minutes divorce their
intimacy speaks a local
legend's tongue

tinged within the singeing
agonies of yen's automatic

each ending of existential hardness
fondles the body's first impression of
sound (say in the whisper of a garden's
scented growth) leading thickness of things to
land of the mimesis of these birds' alphabetic
