Spring!

Something’s definitely in the air…

Over on Terri Windling’s blog, she has a wonderful post absolutely jam-packed with wild daffodils. Here’s a poem about Spring, written by me almost hmnhmnhmn-ahem! years ago.

The model also reminds me of Patti Smith, as photographed by her friend Robert Mapplethorpe for her album covers.

Poem: Racing By

Another poem from the archives: Racing By.

Written about the act of falling asleep. The photo is of my local river, taken from the footbridge, about four years ago in winter, early in the morning after a rare snowfall, and sadly not in the best of focus. Ho-hum.

voices in the night when it's quiet...

Slightly more Gothic than the rest of the poems I’ve set free, but less so than the ones I’ve kept hidden.

Office Worker – or, The Wicker Man

Another poem. This one is in response to all those creative types who give presentations to corporate employees on How To Unleash Your Creativity At Work…

Thru me the wild wind blows

Poem: Summer Drum

I’ve been trawling through my archives and came across some old poetry from wayyyy back. Thought you might like some (only the ones I’m prepared to admit to, not the Gothic teenage noodlings).

I walk; the hot summer sun beats on my dark hair, a drum

The Gothic teenage noodlings might have been a good series of posts if the internet had been around when I was a semi-Gothic teenager – I wrote at least one poem a day back then.

On second thoughts, they might just have been a lasting embarrassment haunting my every Internet move.
