Sea-scent rumble, trickle yesterday, invisible. I write in white, simple, one word trips another. I return, connotation, exploration pattern broken? And a song was sung at the gate, notes expand as a third flicks into view from behind a black pillar, hawkmoth, robed in the tilt, split of spectrum, fade.
Dark angel, are you really keeping your side of the deal? There’s a mirror between us. And in the reflection, a truth, we can’t quite conceal. Reclamation. Shut down the infernal screen. Rain starts to fall in my dream and in the darkness, You approach in a cluster of light, coming back, over the hill.Continue reading “Foray”
Leaves on the tree stream like a woman’s hair. Whistle of wind, ship-creak sounds from branches that sway. Silver around a passing cloud, revelation in a sepia sun. Dart of birds as they leave their shadows behind. The way the fir tree dances with the wind. On the forest, balls of mistletoe, out of reach. Continue reading “Birdsong, 2:50 a.m.”
Relief as the darkness enfolds. The edge of a strange planet where white waves roll in, a sheen on the sea, obsidian.

Cloudy ride on the open-top bus wind-swept passengers corralled by protective silver rail. You, in the front seat, head tilted, gunmetal sky, hint of rain, air in splinters fish-eye view, alpine silence in the spiralling trees 19th November 2018, 8pm.
Kelp-light shines down in teleport beams and from the black maw of the sea cave the merman rises through the scales, sonar pulse in aurora red and green.
