Inspire

norway-photography-32__880You’re in every new song I hear

The whisper of mist that clings to my eyelashes

Every ocean that spreads its aquiline arms in offering

And the lights that flash across the midnight shadow

You are the force field that protects me –

Against the world.

Clarity

girl-lake-nature-painting-wallpaper-1920x1080Her face was like Athens.

It was Rome, Alexandria, London.

It was the changing seasons, flashing amber, scarlet;

the colour of the sun.

Fluttering;

like the moth eaten pages of a journal

faded, yellowed; long exposed,

yearning for clarity.

Stumbling on broken petals of tarmac
The fine contours of my cheeks crack the mould
It washes the dirt from the earth
Its polluted breath
Vomits its secrecy in whiskers of black.
