Assad fodder

They,are the people dying

on dead streets.


Soon,they will be the people

that were.


Yet innocent,in every meaning of the word.


But they have become

our guilt.


Because,we didn't listen

because,we allowed ourselves

to be collectively,selectively

bejewelled monarch

entry picture

Deeply within,am I struck!

watching the shimmering flight,

of this gaudy projectile,iridescent diver,

speed fishing,flashing by O! so majestically!


No sooner,returned to perch

on the wispiest of branches,than in a trice, 

having contemplated his next targetted plunge

is gone! spear shaping his miraculously plumed body,

he pierces the rivers undulating face

in a dart...

Cumulous and Co.

entry picture

See how they beautifully congregate

embracing each other

in white silence


vapourous cathedrals

softest of mountains

in a floating by landscape


an ethereal endless armada

of everchanging shapes

drifting en masse

without destinations


weightless wandering vessels

sailing on a dry azured ocean.

newborn,with our newborn companion,joy!

we thought a boy,who would never age

how he filled each days page for the soul, how he led the dance!

enhanced the early stage,with light and love


while above,dreams flew,waiting to be caught

no thought of reality had we,carrying on the naive act

blind to the fact,that the spectre of time,remained unimpressed

Vespertine,nocturnal onset

subverting,plaguing the bedraggled

dregs of light

forcing the day,to submit

to the sombrely,masked prelude

of nights full fluent,meshing of shadows.


In these blackening hours

strange thoughts arise

surreal sensings,of something universally free out there

ageless spirit's at play,


perhaps the messenger's of dream's,

goodbye the bikes

With your once heightened passion for speed

it was inevitable

that one day

you would be the man

who should have heeded

my warnings

but didnt

and I will be the woman

I expected I would be

having to listen

to your leather clad friends

trying half heartedly

to sing hymns

trying to console me

with bullshit.

This time

I wont waste my warnings

Something you were born in

that you can never leave

or pretend its not there at all.

An obligatory waiting

for a certain vehicle

that you will be made to board against your will.


I am not talking buses here

and I am not talking about any possibility

of a return journey.

GO! little Gosling GO!

They are required by nature

to follow

albeit in a dicing with death tumble

richochetting off jutting rocks

when Father calls up the precipitous cliff face

or preferably from high ledge to sea in one precarious plummet

predators do not allow a second chance!


Instinctively they peer into the unknown abyss.

Are they wishing they were made of something a lot heavier

an immortal invisibilty

abiding in everything everywhere

even within and immeasureably beyond

the pitiless realms of death.


Relentless traveller

greatly outdistancing

and indiscriminately retrieving


its short lived loan

of all things mortal

After lighting a match

entry picture

Expectant opening of palms

lowered over the grate

as a little cheery smoky spiral ascends

to be scattered by icy winds.


From between kindle rafted logs

the ballet of flames begins.

Slowly the gaudy dancers

perform their combustible leapings and curlings

snaking around the dead wood

caressing it like witches fingers.


The crackling cacophony is under way

Look sunward comes the golden remedy untrimmed which pours

thenceforward onto thy sill there sits

like cold dawns little bird though he be narrow ledged implores

to be blessed by the first beaming exhibits


Warmed departing doth he with joy

take to winging forth anew

the bright sunrise his high part employs

to enhance the freshly opening blue

(Dis)member(er) of Parliament

His are not words expressing truth.

Not one of them will give away the devious way

in which their meanings are twisted.


He is not the singer

of whose voice would please Heaven.

He is not the actor who has no problem

in declaring his real self.


Neither and least of all could he ever be

the homeless person struggling to define life.

Towards revelation

Now of mind

through time aligned

to respect and accept

the parallel of death

its dark irresistable breath

carrying our echoes into enigmatic spaces

unknown places where beliefs may end that once did infer

how foolishly we clung to myths and gods that never were.

Flawless blush

Roses to be

seething to explore and culminate

in pinnacles of scarlet profusion


eager to taste

the dewy dawn

of first day


thornily clasping

interlacing lattices


slenderly sinously meandering

seeking the fullness

of honey toned light


needing the guidance

of loving green fingers

to conspire with the secrets of the sun

Glowing windows

stepping the valley hillsides

flickering like fireflies

whitely contrasting with the tenebrous gloom

bleating vocal anthologies of pitifulness.

Pack horsed

with national pride

venturing into a vast empty region

sub zero kingdom of frozen sea


to valiantly stubbornly plant the first flag

to be sacrificed to the histories of great losses

Rowing at Dover

Oaring the boat along gently.

Sat in the stern

my wife.

She tucks into a poetry book.


Off to my left,the huge iconic chalky face

with green hair,overlooks our insignificent presence.


Below their roof of these waters

swim many varieties of marine life

with many varieties of names

that many varieties of humans

have given them

the demise of velvet collared Teddy boys

Safe? marooned?

I have this uncertainty

whether or not

to drown

in the sea

of your love.


My heart

will not swim

in doubt

of what

lies beneath

its surface.


Leave me

like this

for now

on this


of indescision.



I must bide

until the truth rises

and unifies.

praising toleration


so harsh,so wild, doth the upper tempests blow

light,to thine eyes,falls dim

sunlight dismissed,dark full insists

in this tenebrous sea,all shadows here do swim.


Thunders terrible,rolling voice,lightnings fearsome flash!

clouds,rain swollen,unclasp their hold

though far below,is cursed this dire show

unrelenting ne'er less,high furies more loud unfold.

I know

my patience

will melt the ice

around your heart

slowly setting it free to find its way

to a heaven I am making for our eventual togetherness

until then my loves goes with you and my patience will never rest

my patience knows no bounds,my patience never loses,the needs of my soul won't allow it to.

Silver fruition

With the dust

of the days far flung brilliance

still in my eyes


I am at one

with night

the presiding Lord

heavens glittering parades

one that has always

Stalking those who are thought to trample on the worthinesse's of poetry

assumed to be joy riding its words and meanings over a cliff
