When ghosts of yesterday

Play in the winter lights

Strewn across pavements

And the tired ferry

Bleeds across the winter skies

The winter fog clogs everything

Memories and hopes alike

Vanishing in thin air

Rising with the fog

Disappearing in the grey skies

A wisp of air in between two clouds

 

There is a patch of blue

Playing within my mind’s eye

Irresolute and hazy

 

There is a patch of blue

Playing within the clouds

Waiting to grow

 

Those seeds of blue

Washed from within the grey

With tokens of my Trust

Hang from within

Recesses of my mind

Where Hope and light meet

In a corner that was dark

That is now fed bright

By what lies within

Winter lights

The sunflowers hope

That mornings will turn brighter

So they stay in sun

 

Sunflowers hasten

Their desire locked in black

Seeds that stay inside

 

Morning optimism

Meets midday where sun will stride

To point of sojourn

Screech in depth

Of horrors that fell

Hold the breath

Dance with Death

Violins that would foretell

A trip towards hell

 

Take the bar

Higher towards stars

Colour scar

Hope in jar

A wish to undermine hours

In spinning of cars

 

Whirl me tour

Towards whirlpools felt

Call me boor

Dark and moor

The insults on damsel pelt

Wills steady don’t melt

Light in dark

A token of hope

To instill

As we cope

The winding pathways now spelt

With intent strong felt

 

Innerved spots

Oozing through my pores

Inhaling

Lung flailing

The knowledge that the light stores

Tight forget me nots

 

Purple play

In the rising seeds

Uprooted

Fade away

Like gardener tends to weeds

Saves rose from decay

In Time’s Slate

We wrote the whispers

In the fears

That hope clears

They plodded on the seers

Fate in arrears

 

I clung on

To the bees honey

The wasps free

Bodies flee

The brave quaking on a knee

Heart in sinking sea

 

When wrists ache

The Heart will translate

Unheard spate

Fleeting Flate

Moments dropping as I wait

Maiden in a crate
