Only a shadow

entry picture

An image captured,

a likeness drawn

 

But only a shadow,

a thought

and a hope

 

All that was painted

will melt

into base

 

The template uncovered,

an image misplaced.

In the Orchard

entry picture

Seedlings lie in sodden ground

shooting

            piercing

                        rooting

 

their bodies splinter through the ceiling

winding

           twisting

                      binding

 

shapes are forming, buds embellish

shading

            toning

                      jading

 

apples swell and leaves are quaking

hanging

           boun...

5w1h

entry picture

Captivation...

a person.

I held onto a moment and it spilled into several

in the city, where I pondered along the streets

as the leaves fell and the colours changed,

I filled my thoughts with roses.

A memory

entry picture

Did you feel that stretch?

when time went soft,

expanding over us

 

How odd we should be here,

again

So different

yet the same

 

But you didn't feel that stretch,

when reality got bent in...

the bulging supple arc

connecting two spaces

across ages

 

So time hardened again

and the world washed over,

 

                swallowing me

The Hollow

entry picture

I built you a chamber
in the landscape

 

And there I kept
your name,
your sound

 

The air inside
bounced all around

 

It sucked itself
a yawning hollow
in the earth


 
Then carried
on the wind,
became 
dispersed

 

The echo aches,
driving
broken ice
across the face

 

Silver streams
pass slowly
through the space

 

When I look over
at the hollow
...

The Therapy Shop

Hair, body, nails,

therapy for skin.

Gloss the exterior

of your mucked up interior,

do not apply within.

On paths

entry picture

On paths we cross,
threads connecting
in place 

 

Our alignments tangle
in a web
of time 

 

Flashes trapped
as water drops 
on glass

 

When day closes,
our vapour trails
I trace

 

Those moments in place,
roll like ripples 
on a lake

 

Those places in time,
held like snow globes 
in my mind
