it cannot be found
through the bottom of a glass
for love nor money

Long Weekend


across bridges, through tunnels
down paths, along tracks
so many hours, hundreds of miles
I'm on my way back
I'm nearly home

Last Minute Winner

a shot smashed in goal
release of all frustrated
tribal emotions

Yesterdays

toes freed, feet tickled
by low-tide's sandy ribs
every single little breaking wave
a charge
fired through shocked ankle bones
sparking skin, heart, eyes
whipping North Sea air from my lungs
More waves! More waves! More waves!
more Yesterdays

Waiting…

...for the heat to hot up
the sun to spot me
for clouds to come
pull me under their covers
and soak me through
I'm ready

Unseen

did you feel
the tide turn
the new moon rise
something shift inside

Sun

this reminded me
of your smile
that reminds me
to smile too

on cloud

it's been dark so long
but for one ray of sunshine
hearing you smile

Crow

sentinel of change
fly beside my freed spirit
orientate my soul
