the sky is sanctuary

where silken shreds of your soul

have sun tendril melded

lashing golden in my sight

i squint in memory delight


so at sunrise, with gasps

we become one again

and follow me you burn

simmering heat on shoulders

till the day is horizon nestled


your bright reminds me

you are not gone

merely crossed over

leaving me with moonlit melancholy

and the finite fears of a mortal mind

chemically prone to fantasy

and feckless conjecture


so let your rays reflect on my ice wintered self

and i in limbic state remain

your cyclic comfort cherish i will

in eternal, salutary refrain


come gather

all ye disciples of despondency

fine purveyors of hurt


come hither

and gather by my light

as it burns and inhales

your pristine pathos


i’ll collect your brittle bark, shedding

your crumbling edifice of self

so raw, so cherished

and with your sycamore soul thus exposed

sit beside you

seeking your sugared self

spile driven deep

a spigot set to seep

your syrup

oh so



The fragility of love

A web strand weighed by dew

a breeze whisper shall break

for cowering spider to renew
Later softened by sun glow 

and sagging insect shell

to the frail strands, tenuously twisted 

another calamity befell
twice broken

twice repaired 

now no more
And with this, my 100th post… I thank you all for your warmth and ongoing support ❤️


as colour leaches from the world

diluting swirled in nearby stream

under layers of grey reflection

a heart lies inert from a wayward dream


she revelled first with the promise of spring

danced under tsubaki blossoms bright

then watched the solitary seagull soar

on many a sand etched summer night


now let her nestle with the rotting leaves

the dank decay cool refreshing

her beating slows to raindrop time

pulse weakened






Your ghost has gone

No longer the taste of arsenic-laced  lips

with treacle sheen

your searing salivary residue

wiped away


Where pyrotic solvents once burned

an acid hole deep within

calming enteric salve now soothes mucosal chasms


The antacid of time
