Cascades of pink lace

Adam and Eve in Eden

Skin, flesh, pip, stalk, gone

Catch 22

 

Coalition tried

To save the country money

With massive job cuts.

 

Loss of income tax,

Paid more dole, had to borrow

More than Labour had.

 

Fewer consumers

To help the economy.

Did they really save?

The Air is Still

The air is still, quite

The freezing touch of his hand

Death is by my side

 

 

 

 

This audio was provided by my husband Scott

Anger

entry picture

Anger consumes me

Eats my soul like a cancer

Self inflicted hell

 

 

 

 

P.S. The audio recording was recorded by my daughter Samantha.

Ring of Roses

 

 

Crisp within her vase

Dead red roses on display

Fragile in the light

 

Lack of sickly scent

Seeing beauty in decay

Brittleness deflects

 

Look but do not touch

Your fingers are forbidden

Petals turn to dust

 

Floral deviance

Delighting in senescence

Ring of rosy death

The bride looks pensive

as fascinators tremble.

Windy wedding day.

Why should I forget?

I have to remember first.

And it’s the hardest.

So many winter friendships

When is the ground?

Endlessly falling

Not feeling a parachute

Not seeing the ground
