Her Truth

IMG_0364

She is quiet
even when speaking.

With much going on beneath the surface
it’s the things she doesn’t say
you need to take heed of,
for the secrets to her are locked up
within those silences

Like Air, I’ll Rise

IMG_2632

Like air, I’ll rise
you cannot see me
yet I’m felt
like the wind that whispers your name
or touches you
unexpectedly
a cool caress upon your cheek …

What prayers are given
within this holy silence — 
How does the wish to be anointed
with the saving grace
of touch
manifest itself  …

Dark and Silent Seas

IMG_0367

Night falls,
and with it the cloak I’ve kept 
upon my thoughts.
How tightly I’ve bound them 
tom me
until now.
They stretch before me
dark and silent seas …

Blackbird Night

IMG_0363

Shall I lose myself in this
blackbird night, lush with silence
and dark thoughts that take root
to bloom in midnight’s garden?

Solitude and reflection,
is a mirror laid upon my cheek
and a sense of belonging is magnified …

Unturned stones

‘This window needs cleaning,’ I think to myself.

Silent Saturday morning unfolds
before me.
Autumn makes her presence known,
a haphazard scatter, gold
leaves upon verdant lawn …

Debriefing

She finds herself back
in the game,
equal parts novice
and Mata Hari;
dating, a chess match …

Somewhere in between

Is it naught but
a foolish notion
seeking to conjure you
out of the mist of memory
and longing, bruised and bittersweet…

Persistence of Ivy

Isn’t it romantic –
the way it climbs and curls
uncaring whether welcomed,
undeterred by the inhospitable
brick and mortar of our lives.
It enchants us,
vivid, lush with promise;
curves holding light and shadow .
