First World Christmas Tree

  Place the last gleaming dewdrop on my soaring snowy tree. Pristine white, pearl strands catching the peaceful candle light Candy canes hanging from the twinkling feather boughs My Christmas castle, it’s buried deep in a flurry of parcels Place the bright guiding star on my sweet snowy tree Tiffany jewels a world away from

Down By The Riverside

  Down by the riverside, hides all the white lies By the muddy bank he stood with bloody hands and ruined suit Down by the riverside, hides all the white lies His reflection locked and murky is not the prince in her fairy story Down by the riverside, hides all the white lies For in

Will You Wait

Will you wait for me when the Autumn moon is blurred in the olive river When the leaves have died and I’m not by your side to kick them up together Will you wait for me when the storm bears down and you tremble in the street In your thin blue sweater with no umbrella

Eastern Soul

The sun bleached ghost clothes shifted in the late summer zephyr Gathered on rails, a shabby huddle of refugees, limp and hopeless Dusty cobbles burning through summer sandals etching like parchment The Arabic symbols inscribed forever on her soles, seeping into her skin Freckled shoulders weighed heavy under the oppressive sky A deepening burden that

Take me to the sea

The ocean calling pulls me from my grimy city dream, a mirage of cerulean depth Stumbling blindly towards the shore, a magnetic pull of my sign Weary limbs alive in liquid sapphire, an aqua medusa born to join them Each strand of hair a rainbow on the glittering surface worshipping the sunrise The shimmers play,

Vanished

And they scattered as she stumbled through the gleaming square A black and white movie and her red satin shoes stained by rain Dress trailing on the silver lined pavement, tendrils damp to her shoulders Plumes of misty feathers rising in a low flustered cloud above her head An elusive snowy feather passes ghostlike through

Different Moon

Yours is a different moon that I set my sights upon The waning night sky dispersed in its pearlescent blush A dewdrop of oil in the liquid night sends stars scurrying Blurring its glow to a spacious rainbow haze, an amethyst balm Each land, a different moon for its own charcoal skyline Its beam reaching
