A space for poems, random thoughts and writings, maybe the odd short story… I write because I love the beauty of words, but I hope that whatever I put out here speaks for itself and that you take something from it too. 

Not to the fertile soil

Lead me not to the fertile soil, to the soft, mailable ground. Lead me into the cracked dry earth; to the dark and forgotten places where the ground knows what it is to bestarved, dry, forgottenbroken. Let me know what it is to feel the pain of the broken earth,and let me learn to love the cracks in me.   Let […]

And it shall fall

One by one they all went tumbling down.  One       Two            Three                Four                       …                 Crack           Crack      Crack Crash.  Until the last one looked at […]

Poetic consequences

My friend and I decided to play a game – we each write a line of a poem and pass it to the other, folding it so they can’t see. We go on in this way until the paper is used up. I was expecting the result to be incoherent and bizarre, but they actually […]

Streams of Consciouness

My friend and I decided to do ‘stream of consciousness’ one evening. For anyone that doesn’t know what it is, it is where you sit down and write out whatever comes into your head without stopping to think about it. While my friend wrote a very funny poem about getting old and your teeth falling […]

But there came a time when incantation failed; the darkfailed to be illuminated; I failed […]

World beyond

I often gain a sense of peace when I take time to listen to or watch the birds, or to sit with the trees.

In the mystery

Silence hides me;enfolds me in horizon armscradling in windsongas I drink in the afternoon light. The world I see is nothingbut a blanket drapedover hidden potenial realisedto all but eye and mind;a skin, teeming with lifeand a heartbeat throb of its own making. No matter how far I dig, I shall onlyfind another surface.The world […]

Close to me

Be still my heartListen To the melody I will sing for you.Let me whisper of my lovein the stillness of the nightFor I am with you. The melody of your heart fills mewith delightAnd I am glad to be With youIn the quiet of the day Hold fast my loveFor my voice shall echo in […]

Us

Sun dew dancing on the Lilies in the field As they draw My eyes into a crease crinkle Smile Nectar cups drink upwards To the sky My gaze meets it – Life Undulating, swaying, spinning All around me Glorious cacophony of Heart beat Song – a dance Speaks onto the universe inside of me And […]

Joy set the stars to dancingA laugh set the planets spinningA smile set the flowers bloomingAnd love – Love kissed the dry earthwhere a heartbeat waited to be born,drew back in joyful expectation and beheld love gazing back into that kisswith true eyes and pure heart complete A father held embraceA lover walk of passionate […]
