Impending

Feet curl over the edge of the cliff, close to flying ready to soar, heart of a drum. Anticipation brews in my sinking stomach. Time is a flutter: the future is impending. Success is sickly sweet but love is my greatest accomplishment so far. The rest will come. The fog will clear and I will… Continue reading Impending

Walking Stardust

Walking Stardust Breathing in the warmth of your skin, your eyelashes flutter like petals, sleeping. I stare into the dusty black room. Light creeps through the blinds. Hitting the wall with its luminous glow. A romantic feeling pulses through the layers of my skin. I am optimistic that no other being will make me feel… Continue reading Walking Stardust

Foreign Words

My eyes are derelict. Infant and fresh. Absorbing foreign words, foreign faces. My mother tongue, tangled, twisted, amongst vowels of confusion. Their faces shine with welcoming eyes. A barrier present, cold and strange. Muttering, handshakes, kisses – swapped and selected. Twist of culture, language and value. Holland. 60 minutes by plane. 60 differences from home.… Continue reading Foreign Words

Street Corners

Caution lurks behind every street corner. In the early morn. Dusty blue and sapphire ignite, forming patterns in the sky. Panting heart quickens. Racing even, mimicking dangers that - Do. Not. Exist. Heightened fear in the darkness. Over the bridge, water resembles – thick, black liquid. Slithering away. Opaque Ambiguous. Reflecting the light of the… Continue reading Street Corners

Delicate Flower

Delicate, white flower. Untouched by fear. Lost in paradise. The sky is clear. Floating on the surface of blue. Delicate flower absorbs the view. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Rain is declining from misty grey. Darkness steals the light of day. Delicate flower trapped in storm.… Continue reading Delicate Flower

Forgive

Turning the corner alone, you left behind. A daughter whose words were wise and kind. Ripping apart all that is known. Now all that is left is skin and bone. The heart will heal, but respect is lost. Change can have an unforgivable cost. Desires of the future will never be the same. The flickering light dims on the family flame. The tie was love,… Continue reading Forgive

White Butterfly

Elegant symbol catches the light. Ready to soar. Wings expanding. Flooded with freedom. Any place is home. Partners with blue Friends with green. One second to admire her beauty. One minute later you remember her. The white queen of nature. Restricted creature, that blossomed one day. The white queen of the sky. Playful, she seeks… Continue reading White Butterfly

Writing Manifesto

Staring at the white, hoping for words. Hoping for salvation. Wanting to give up. Breathe in and out and close your eyes - relax. Stand up and go for a walk, let the blood flow around your body, let it feed your mind. Let time give you the power, let time give you strength. Remember that every thought is important. Just write anything. Sit back down with freshly peeled… Continue reading Writing Manifesto

Waiting

Waiting for the train to arrive. Page waiting to be turned. A freshly printed novel. Waiting to be desired by wise eyes. A canvas of white, longing for colour. Patches of fresh white snow unmarked by nature. Waiting for the rain to fall. A gathering of clouds aiming their sights on the last patch of blue. Anticipation.… Continue reading Waiting
