this time of the day
warms my silent

river


Painting by Daria Petrilli via Magpie Tales 


i dig in
my heels 
feel
the pull of water
over sand
the tug of matter
over mine

and the days 
go by

will i never
get better
at letting
go

watershed



having you
beside
me
carves a river through
my catastrophe

hollow



if
i
curled up
inside the
things i left unsaid
you would never see me again

landmark


Petergate, with a view of York Minster, York, UK , Photo by Tess Kincaid via Magpie Tales

shouted down
alleyways 
your name
banks
breathlessly
off gnawed brick
memorials

a rising 
low note prayer
of good intention

a dub-stepped

hymn
 
in extraordinary

time

treasure



do i
spark joy?
or am i a coin
tossed in a birds nest
needful

I am
the final victor
your ash
soaked
in the skin
of my boots

dark ride

Image via Magpie Tales


your breath
bated

toothsome

a rainbow chorus
of seventy six
velvet draped

anvils
dropped gently
swiftly 
on itsy bitsy toes
