the shape of silence
is smooth and round - a pebble
the size of an egg

Thursday, August 30, 2012

The dark whispers in
my ear, "Summer is dying".
Night creeps and rises.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

aeroplanes - lions -
dragonflies and zoos - twisted
thoughts and jealousy

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I had a bucket
full of rain water - like love:
it went down the drain

Monday, August 27, 2012

You took his name and
I need to accept that and
be happy for you.

Sunday, August 26, 2012

just make a cup of
tea and do the laundry and
plod. You took his name.

Saturday, August 25, 2012

learn the alphabet -
the pasta shapes and pesto
of poverty - ice

Friday, August 24, 2012

learning to live with
fear and stress and not drown in
the tsunami - walk

Thursday, August 23, 2012

zombies lurch and yet
slowly I cope with the fear
and learn to survive

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

a blood splattered wall -
a bridge - a rope - exit right -

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

strawberries - wine gums -
fruit tea and sunshine - books - friends -
stroking a cat - swim

Monday, August 20, 2012

Godzilla screaming
is how it feels - racing heart
panic attack - waves

Sunday, August 19, 2012

tidy unused love
into a box, and keep it
safe; in case of fire

Saturday, August 18, 2012

I put my heart in
vinegar to preserve it -
a jar on a shelf

Friday, August 17, 2012

cut my heart and let
fall a drop of blood into
the river - dissolve
sew a patch onto
my heart with a needle and
nettle thread - acid

Thursday, August 16, 2012

a boat on the sand
full of holes and moss - flaking
paint - drawer with seashells
I saw the river
flow past my dream of love and
I'm a boat on sand
I saw the river
flow past my dream and I was
left awake - a boat
I saw the river
flow past my dream - gravity
called it to the sea
I saw the river
flow past my dream - it quenched
my soul's ache - the sea

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

the colours mingle
and spin - transfiguration -
identities fold

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

the bride wore red and
walked around the fire with him -
barefoot and smiling

Monday, August 13, 2012

you looked so happy -
I must dig my veins and be
happy for you - green

Sunday, August 12, 2012

the ashes of love
reveal a phoenix - it flies -
it must be free - sky
phoenix egg - magic
thoughts - swirling red silk and gold -
walk around the fire
listen to music -
slide - drink tea - slide - spin and
circle - slide - and fall
put my hand into
the boiling water and feel
the release - let go
I held the screaming
inside today - the bubbles
are diminishing
I can not say. My
tongue must be sealed in wax. My
feelings ... you are his

Saturday, August 11, 2012

take my heart, cut it
into thin strips, gently fry
over a low heat

Friday, August 10, 2012

cloud - pyramid - oil -
basil - bonsai - badger - work -
the bridge - red chillies

Thursday, August 9, 2012

lemon sorbet heart -
in the dark, in the light - sour -
sweet - an asteroid
I insist you love me,
but you don't, fall free from the
gravity and fly
I bleed in the dark
but it's OK, the river
washes my soul - salt

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

go left and take the
interesting path - journey
through woods and mountains

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

hold on, hold on as
the days fall like rain drops - dance -
eat mashed potato

Monday, August 6, 2012

I drink fruit tea - breathe -
embroidering the silence
without you with calm

Sunday, August 5, 2012

vignettes of darkness
and sunlit beaches washed by
smooth breathing waves - fold

Saturday, August 4, 2012

the choices you make
that ripple down the time line
of your life - drugs - school

Friday, August 3, 2012

let the poison in
my head drain away through my
tears - remember light

Thursday, August 2, 2012

the weeds tangled in
my head, that choked my path and
left me lonely - breeze

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

my brain fizzles and
pops - new medication sinks
into the grey sponge
