I’ve seen a man who has drowned. Found face-down, blotched skin, blue and purple tinge, bruises fading and swollen. Tide had brought him in, water swirling, earth set in its spin. Someone’s everything; feeling nothing for anyone, came to rest as nobody’s anything.

Your heart, my kingdom of heaven. 


Remembering

what has been,

I remember

I have

tasted life 

without you. 


Cashmere 

discovered

woollen robes

now coarse. 


Draft Box

Journeys into the quiet, from daybreak till night takes day and beyond. 


You ask 

for my wholeness.

Once again,

I say

‘I am scattered’.


Contented

by victory

from battle,

unperceived

went the defeat

by war.
