Angel Squad: Angel Management Services starring ‘Mikey’ and ‘Cam’

When the world becomes a Monty Python sketch… I tried my hand at comedy writing this morning. I was actually in the most opposite of moods after hearing about, sorry I can’t even say his name, that bloke over there who somehow is in charge of the USA, the appalling and horrifying bile-dripping, hate incitingContinue reading “Angel Squad: Angel Management Services starring ‘Mikey’ and ‘Cam’”

Cancerian Retrospective

(The wheel turns. The dancer must rest) Be still now   What is life without loss? What is joy without love ? What is Earth with Spirit?   Remember.  Hear the rush of the Great Sea – The Sea that flows in your veins, through your heart. As you sit on the shore, embrace theContinue reading “Cancerian Retrospective”

Oblivi – us

No more time to change

Tuesday in November It didn’t rain. The line between cold and hot, lonely and mocked, was paved over without a sound. It was a Tuesday. It was a clear sunny day, just over four degrees. When the ozone layer dislocated its joints and stretched into oblivion. It’s tireless work ignored, without tears, the ground belowContinue reading “No more time to change”

The Pisces Call

  I stumbled out the Great Sea with legs unsure and unformed. Millennia passed as I grazed and clawed, grew limbs, and shook off my scales. In time, my core stiffened to meet new pace, poise shifted and teeth met with tongue. Through years I shaped clay from waiting wet earth, cementing will and allContinue reading “The Pisces Call”

The perils of change

(I had to add this poem as a picture as WordPress helpfully kept removing my spaces!   Note- WordPress, you may need to consider this feature for the poetic among us) The Perils of Change This poem came to me in one of those midnight inspiration moments.  The last 6-9 months have been extremely wearing,Continue reading “The perils of change”

Shouting into the tornado

The following poem was inspired by the growing mass of voices on Twitter.  I asked myself, what is the essence of the message behind the words.  What is it we want people to hear. Included in this, is my own voice. This is what I saw… Can you see me? Can you help me? CanContinue reading “Shouting into the tornado”

Brexit (Tiddley Pom): The Pooh of Politics

A friend of mine read my poem about mental health in the modern world, “Sabre-Tooth Post-Truth“, and concluded that it had a Winnie The Pooh style about it. Praise indeed! It gave me the idea when feeling particularly exasperated about the state or rather in-a-state of British politics, of writing a poem about the insanityContinue reading “Brexit (Tiddley Pom): The Pooh of Politics”

Mind – Full

Words are flying around my head None will take root and find meaning Feelings are sent tumbling To a place without words There are no pictures either Just half-words and muddled phrases Thrown up from deep recesses Gushing into my mind I can grasp neither heads nor tail Whizz banging articulations fade Before I canContinue reading “Mind – Full”
