Flood

Water rushing down the path
The mailman swept off his feet
Letters lost
Toy boats sailing along
Carrying dolls Steve and Simone to a distant neighbourhood
Eventually washing up at somebody’s back door
But no one’s home.

Care

Little surprises everyday arrive at the door of the chapel,
Babies wrapped in dandelion leaves,
Left in the night by desperate girls,
Unburdening themselves of expense they cannot afford,
Taken in by understanding nuns,
Counting fingers and toes with pure love in their eyes,
Another duty to perform,
Another home to find.

Not Mine

I don’t think he is the one,
For he lives in a house at the back of his head
Entrenched in old memories
Crying out for the dead,
And he watches her pass every day,
Sailing on harbour wind,
Going going gone
He silently wishes I was that girl
As I twist with pity wearing colours of pearl,
Sitting by fire, looking into his eyes,
No this is not my boy, not mine.

Sarah Once Mine

She wraps herself into a ball of delight
Protecting herself from the outside fight
Wild winds and storms on both sides,
She sings rock n roll songs swaying in time
There finding comfort inside
Lost to the beauty once easy to find,
Such is the long life of Sarah once mine.

Raspberry

I love you like a little boy loves sticky messy raspberry jam just spilt on a clean white tee shirt which mother took pains to wash.

Poet Recognition

Most definitely, I am a poet and I love it
Most definitely the way the words flow from me
The way the words roll in my head
The letter games I love to play
Most definitely I love it
