I am very honoured today to have one of my poems featured on Louise Hasting’s site, Wings Over Water. If you haven’t come across any of Louise’s work yet, please pop over to her site and read some of the wonderful poems and prose she has posted there.
I have known you
From a light sleep
you wake me,
face pressed against my window
like an errant child
without a friend.
You ride the turbulence
in a world full of secrets;
The Confidant to love and death;
blowing kisses of eternal promise
while gathering up last breaths.
Some days you wander
through cinammon streets,
speak in hermit tongue,
an odour of stale whiskey and smoke
on your weary exhalations.
Other times, your playful sprite
through lily-white glades,
lifts kites aloft with childlike hope
and stirs the autumn leaves.
I hear your fitful
on the wind-chimes in the yard.
I run with you tonight –
if from a light sleep
you wake me.
