winter high seas

Timber creaks under our toes this lady moans underneath us protesting the storm when the swell rises and breaks salty brine bone soaking everything it does not knock us down Ocean whipped winds beat a war cry out on my chest and dance with my Medusa hair free I stare down into that blueberry plum… Continue reading winter high seas

a world apart

My jittery turbulence feet Never finding rest Always stretching out branching Leaves searching to quench a thirst deathly A hunger for light and air Heart jet lagged time zone hangovers You say we pace while we are on the phone Because our subconscious is search Seeking footsteps stalking for who we are speaking to And… Continue reading a world apart

moves me to words

Why have I suddenly found this so difficult Doing the thing I think I do best Doing the thing I feel is my calling My soul's purpose Not writer's block But soul block Not the lack of things to say Not a lack of words to use But a lack of desire To beat the… Continue reading moves me to words

Relativity

Time is relative Dialation of moments The differences between two perspectives Velocity and speed and... It's just different Heat is relative The rise and fall of it The way it makes us feel You know, it's the humidity that makes it feel hot?

the view around me

I watch it fade into hindsight The image of him in my rearview mirror gets smaller Familiar scents, like that from nightmare-shaped airfresheners, dissipate into the atmosphere Adjusting the driver's seat so I can finally reach the pedals.

bonds positively charged

Feeling rain on my skin As if for the first time Droplets cool as snowflakes Divine scents of earth and ozone and decay The rain trickling down my windscreen no longer looks like tears Water molecules cling to each other Cohesion Hydrogen bonds Positively charged Rivulets seem random But there is always a reason Always… Continue reading bonds positively charged

Art, bloggity blog

Anchors away!

I was going to do a watercolour for this week but I decided to go with some digital art instead. I used a great free phone app called Snapseed. If you like phone photography and you don't have Snapseed, you are doing yourself an injustice. The othe resource I used was pixabay. I used so… Continue reading Anchors away!
