Slicing peaches palatable,
i’m staring at your ruins,
scaffolds spread on open wounds
like bandages to stop the bleeding.
And as i look around,
there’s no one left to build the walls.
My knife scrapes hard
on worn down bricks,
juices spilling over hand & arms,
dripping slowly to the floor
and for a moment look like blood
before they seep away
between my feet
you look so peaceful and you know
that i’ve adored your beauty
Milky trickles turn to streams
and flood my oat flake towers
When i was a child,
we built a world of dreams & heaps of sand
and this is what i think of
as i sit down
to watch the sunrise
Thanks Adam and Chris for the second to last One Shoot today and thanks for everything you’ve done and for being such an inspiration. It’s good to know you.
I’ll be having my last Spotlight over at One Stop on the 19th of July and then my time there comes to an end as well – a good and valuable time where I’ve learned much, met many fantastic people and formed friendships I wouldn’t want to miss anymore…yep but won’t disappear from the poetic blogworld.. so…see you around..
