A group of middle aged ladies,
all carrying a few extra pounds,
decided to put on a drama
enthusiasm knowing no bounds.
They practiced each week at the hall,
learning their lines and each part,
eventually getting things right
after many a shaky false start.
Now, wanting to add some effects,
that were special and eye catching too,
they contacted a yo...

This is inspiration from the ice breeze, and cold realisation with my love.
Has it always been this cold?
I don't remember shivering so often. Nor my back cramping in pain.
Something is changing. Something is different.
As weather patterns come and go, so do you.
How can it be that the amount of love I need, doesn't need me.
Doesn't come to me. Blows over my skin, ...

Back in the late 90s when life was still simple but verging on breaking but little we knew
We didn't have mobiles
We would call up on landlines
Meet ..be there on time
Back then the sky seemed more blue
Dance college limbering
Boys cloakrooms mingling
Latin American dance
Silvers and leotard..tap shoes and ballet shoes
Jazz boots and shiny sweat pa...

The Limericist watched,
the stage was set,
the crowd took their seats.
Lim walks Bella,
a stubborn 14-year-old 13-inch beagle
who almost yanks Lim's arm
out of joint to chase a morning squirrel,
but Lim is hardly aware
because he is amused within himself,
thinking - Drama .. drama, everything is drama:
Bloody Christ dying on a cross with sad eyes,
audiences all choked up...

I often visit the place
where we fell to our deaths
a cathedral now stands
on the site we shattered skulls
and protruded bones
while passionate stone columns
and blushing glass windows
tower over our pooling blood
which was always so you

The Overland Launch:
In the land of Coleridge and his Ancient Mariner,
In a time of coal fires, wooden boats and horsepower,
There is a story of the Lynmouth Lifeboat Louisa
And the night horse and man over 13 miles pulled her.
Two of the afternoon clock struck a chime,
On January 12th, 1899.
The wind howled and the sea it roared,
Flooding ports and rai...

"boop boop beep beep boop bup bip beep" go the alerts and synaptic responses
too fast to process, too repetitive to want to
"spit that out, it's toxic" I warned
as he slurped up drama in great mouthfulls, as if she were kool-aid
he would slice open a vein and welcome drama directly if she asked him to
surreptitious texting continues beneath the table
eyes downcast, thumbs flying ...

My love, I need you.
Here I am falling in love with the beauty of the world.
Waiting for you, as if it were the end of the world.
I do not mind the wait,
I have the time.
But I have to be honest,
I need you.
I've felt you before,
and that's fine
Someday I'll see you,
and I'll know.
And even if you do not know, it's fine.
I have love to give and loves will ...

MAN: In so short a time
I saw a future
From the formless waters
From the darkness
The way begins
All words are water
GAIA: From my innermost being
I gave abundance!
My words flow from the mountain top
My words give succour to the land
My words are the waters of the sea
PRIEST: The ...
