Garden – 2

23 May, 2020

abstract mixtures and textures of colours, rotting scent breathed in through nose and mouth, kaleidoscope of decay; I turn the compost

Catching Up!

28 October, 2016

Instead of a re-blog this week, I’m catching up with all the posts I’ve been wanting to tell you about but haven’t had time recently! And, as I am planning to be offline from Wednesday, next week for a few days, I thought I’d write this post now!
I mentioned M Sakran a few weeks ago as he’s recently brought out a very interesting poetry collection. If you click on the link, you’ll be able to read his version of a Freyan Verse!
I collaborated again with Patricia Spork who has recently posted our lantune poem Universal Law. Please take a look at her blog; it’s varied and interesting!
Sharmishtha Basu has very kindly posted about my poetry collection Insides at Wing of Dreams.
And if you missed my interview at Alina Meridon, here’s the link Adventures with Potato Peelers. And the lovely Frank also mentioned me in several earlier posts; Insides Out and Swords, Slayers and other Wanderers.
I want to say a HUGE thank you to every one who’s re-blogged and mentioned me recently! I’ll be back on Monday and Tuesday with a Freyan Verse of my own and another Butterfly Cinquain. Then I’ll be taking a few days offline before my second Escape Pod Interview appears here!
For now, I will say farewell and leave you with a very short video (less than 1 minute!) that I created for Halloween… Compost Ghoul.

Butterfly Cinquain 11

4 October, 2016
lurking
in a rotting pile
feeding on snakes and voles,
wrapped in wreaths of grass and garland
I drink
plant life and soul, ooze out bitter
blood, scratch at wooden walls;
dark ghoul of your
compost

Butterfly Cinquain 7

30 August, 2016
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

Wednesday Words – Earthed

25 September, 2013
I need to feel the soil between my fingers, to crumble compost in my hands, to see the dirt staining the creases of my palms and watch my nails turn black. I need to sow potentials in tiny pots, to water them and watch green life surge forth. I need the feel of earth beneath my feet and in my hands. I focus. I am being. I am earthed.
