She is

She is

not of this place

she will

sidestep and skip, rather than shuffle

with phantom souls

turn and thrash

against the currents of indifference


The “do not walk’ sign means run!



Not rusted iron…

her ways are daisy chains

intricate, scattered

along dusted lanes

fragile fragments oft failing, falling

as a virgin pale petal array

skirting ankles


She will force a smile when tears begin

swallow the pain whole

to a raw within

be brave my dear

stay with pure intention

for outstretched arms await


and to them

      2. Waaa! Not even one cold beer, what kind of poor excuses for Aussies are we?
        I’m drinking a black coffee right now (but it’s a Paleo, grass fed butter and coconut oil because it’s the rage right now and I’m easily influenced haha). Your unburnt one is coming right up, don’t gag on the butter!


      3. Oh straight black for me. No sugar and no fads πŸ˜‰
        Yep, not beer wine or champs. I made up for it for too long and it’s time to be free with clarity.
        Ciao Bella!


  1. This is so fresh and welcoming. You captured the essence of this pure soul beautifully. I love the dynamics of the poem. As I read I can feel the rush of adrenaline, pumping through her veins while she is running, braving through proprietary land, discarding the rules. Lovely piece ❀

      1. Well, I must admit, what you are saying is as welcome as the monsoon rains on parched ochre earth. Bring it on then, a challenge to out compliment each other! Um…which has been going for about a month now. And isn’t a challenge at all – you are amazing 😊
