Rust

7b02e6b3714f17c26613e679bec8d52eLiquid darkness is her shroud

Where once lovers walked.

Fish swim like birds over her deck.

Unsinkable;

Hubris writ large in the stars.

The stories never remembered;

The tiny child in third class.

Hiding under a now-rusty bed

The cameras found her doll.

 

Guide

The clock chi1238-59mes the hour

And  we wait for you.

The faint hum of the machine

Someone is called

From afar.

Hands on the board

Melody dances.

Connection;

Life

And

Death.

Velvet rug and ivory

Flesh;

I waited.

And

You arrived.

 

 

 

 

Fist

fistFingers curl

Seeking their centre

And rest

On a solid palm.

Thumb encloses.

Warmth seeking

Meaning making.

Defiance.

Protection.

Feral

Instinctual

Reactive.

Love’s embrace is forgotten

In rage.

Shard

Boy looking scared through the handrail of a staircaseMy mother left when I was three

I remember her at the front door

Surrounded by the winter coats

The National Geographic magazines on the shelf framed her;

Telling my father

She wouldn’t stay.

Her fear and determination

Echoed in my ears

As I looked through

The  banister.

Tousled hair, half awake-

Possibly drunk-

He dies then.

I only realize that later.

Strength

I can handle

The weight of the

World.

Prometheus

Was  ignorant.

He tried

Too hard.

I smile and

Humanity

Hands me their sleeping

Babies.

The world

Is enough;

I can close my eyes

And feel safe.

The bee

Hums,

Connected in purpose.

The lavender bud bends-

Complete.

We  look for the miracle.

Dreaming in the northern sky.

Bee proud hive-

Lingering in the grove.

Surrounded by green.

Bend

sensualA fork in the road;

Face the wind

And walk into the storm’s torrent-

Or

Submit to the usual step

Of life’s dull pace

And follow your mother’s dream.

I bend;

Accepting the lover’s push,

And smile as I come;

Transferable

Bliss.

I dream of mysteriestextpagedesign

Brought to life.

Sensual contrast of black on white

Speak.

Push me beyond the now.

To a possible future

Where I can become the torch

To light

Passionate dreamers.

 

 

Echo

narcissus2She left the noisy city to escape

The crowds.

Festival time always brought

Out the worst in people.

A day in the country

With only her thoughts for company

Would be heaven;

Honey, crust and grape.

She found him

Hours from  humanity

Gazing into the water.

The tanned and taught body

Of a hunter.

With the awe of a human

Who has walked into the realm of a god

She sits and admires.

He ignores-

Self-seeking and disconnected.

She lingers

Subservient

Alone

Waiting for his reply.

Glide

Ablack-dragon-cruises-ls the sun rises in the Eastern sky

She sets out.

Eyes challenging

The complacent clouds.

The town sleeps

Safe within their mattress dreams.

Even the birds yawn

In the branches.

‘Enough’ she exhales.

She searches the horizon.

Blood and bone

Fixed

To the bronze compass.

The sea churns like a hungry lover.

The sail rises with the Northern wind.

“Gods play in distant lands,”

They said

“Enough,” she said.

Yes, always yes.
