blind worm
writhes, knots himself
into a pink and red
cat’s cradle, I slice the earth clod
and he
tumbles into utter darkness
as the brown soil crumbles,
no tomb for him –
he’s home

seedlings
burgeon as
year waxes, I transplant
nine young sunflowers into pots,
pressing
rich compost firmly with gloved hands
and watering them in.
Looking forward –
summer

September Rewards for my Patreon supporters will be available in a couple of weeks!
In September, my supporters will receive a previously unpublished freyan verse (my own invention) inspired by a piece of art, and/or a story about a young man who loses his memory in a mysterious incident…
Heart break and reconciliation, love lost and a relationship gained… These were the themes of the poem and short story that were my August Rewards for my Patreon supporters.
If you missed out on these rewards, don’t worry! If you pledge your support for me at Patreon before 1st September, you will be able to access the September Rewards.
Each month I produce a specially crafted poem and an unusual short story for my supporters at Patreon. Both the poem and short story are previously unpublished. The poem usually covers an A4 side and the short story is a minimum of 2,000 words long.
See you at Patreon soon!
