"Night Thoughs" : very cool! I have to say my favourite part was the verse/stanza about the dust. It's so lovely (the whole poem) how it treads into different areas but at the same time keeps the same feel. ^_^ Well done.
"Days in the Desert" : like Night Thoughts it treads into different areas, shifting focus with the beginning of new stanzas. I like it! Again, you've done well in keeping the same theme throughout the poem in the midst of the changes of scene.
I REALLY love the part about the underground water... and then the boldness highlighting vibrant colour in my mind of 'blue water' and 'red wound' in the next part.
"The Worshipful Essa's"
I like the imagery of this; the thoughts it evokes with the sort of musical chanting going on. A few spelling mistakes... purposeful or just overlooked errors?
'A stone flew from my hand...'
'A butterfly slipped from my grip...'
Those two two-lined sentences were great; imagery, timing and ideas. ^_^
Hm... but for me it felt like the poem sort of ended or came to a stop at '...or will I change?'
What followed definitely fits with the poem and is beautiful, but I can't escape the 'stopped' feeling that the line I pointed out brings. Hm... maybe too maybe spaces between that and what follows?
All the same, it's brilliant poetry. ^_^
"Essa in Exile, In Three Parts" : beautiful. More one single thought than the poems before it. Again some spelling mistakes... but bah. XD
Just another note: while (the description of the place) is helpful to the reader and gives understand, I don't think it's quite needed in the poem. Maybe italicizing the description or something similar would convey a little the fact it's a description of the surroundings?
Beautiful how the desert scenery frames your thoughts and how you describe the different surroundings. 'Sickle trees'... I like that.
God bless and thank you for more poetry. ^_^
