Today is National Poetry day so I thought I would share a couple of poems. Unfortunately I haven’t quite sussed out how to do the formatting but hopefully it comes out okay. Enjoy.
Rapture I stand on a wooden footbridge look down at the wrinkled stream flying fish dive among lilies burnt-red reeds. Wild amber browns forest greens enfold me under the clear blue. First published by Reach Magazine Issue 214
Eclipse Set in slow motion the moon’s silhouette cloaks the plate of the sun. The moon grazes the sweltering star, a solitaire band emerges, black, broken beams chase the dark. Blackbirds, magpies, crows, loom in circles, dance in formation, shriek erratic screams. Atmosphere chills. The moon's shadow slithers away –to reveal a daylight sky.
