The reading

The Reading

…and watched as we carried away your pain

On hearing your words
I saw what they meant to you,
To hear you stumble on the things that matter most
Your memories and misrememberings,
Musings and rants.

How quickly time has passed you by
Your regrets
Your fears
Your family
You put it all out there,
Nailed it to your sleeve.

You entertained us
As you voiced your distress
Then signed our books
And watched as we carried away your pain.

Heading home
I thumbed through your book.
The ink is still wet
Your tears no doubt
A gift for my mum.

To the One I love most…

"We three we are one"

“We three we are one…”

Chasing balloons in the sky You, Lu and I…
We are one.

We reach for planes, we point at trees
We hide from tigers, we catch a sneeze
We warm the fingers, we guide the scooter
You hair-slide the curls, that very much suit her.
We hunt for bears, we watch baby Jake
We draw, “not there!”, get covered in paint
We cry, but laugh more; and for longer
We run and play, our hearts grow stronger.

We drag our feet, we trip in puddles
We “duddle-me?” softly, her warm baby cuddles
We cook the din-dins, we pat-pat the tum
We do the sing-sings, we “need the dum-dum”.

We call in for Walter, we dance with Mia
We warm her bottle, for me it’s so clear…

Though there’s three of us here, this is my toast:
To You, Lu and I – the One I love most.

Ode to Some Are

Ode to Some Are

“Some are champagne bubbles”

ODE TO SOME ARE…

Some are cool
some are calm
some are champagne bubbles
some are thought
some are life
some are share your troubles

Some are delicate
some are sweet
some are strawbs and cream
some are loving
some are heat
some are Summer dream
