Beside me
My sheets smell of you
There is a ghost in my bed
I bury my face; inhale
You are vital
Oxygen, flowing into me.

Once

January 21, 2013 § Leave a comment

There was a pen
Once
Once, there was a pen
It had an inky tip
A fine point, a sharp togetherness
From which dripped in dribs and drabs
And finally intensified, flowed and
Flooded
Flaming universes like lifeblood
Swirls of milky worlds that
Devoured dessicated paper
Ink giving life to the dead, dread, blankness of new pages
Black defining white
Dark defining light
Words becoming constellations
There was a pen once, and it cradled potential in dim liquid warmth
It gripped my hand and pulsed through my
Body
It came from my heart.

Benediction

Sometimes
The rain falls upon my upturned face
Like sweet morning dew.

Precipitation

Silver sheet
Billows and blooms
Blossoming in the air
Transient flowers, fleeting foliage
Sparkling gems from a morose
Sky
The world seems greyscale, washed clean of colour
The droplets alight on all
Debris daintily jewelled and glistening
Even the air is precious now.

This Is Just To Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

by William Carlos Williams
