A returning smile

A returning smile

Missed, perhaps imagined

In dreamtime blooms

Known to infant wisdom

Too rarely marked

In the churn of noonday.

 

And I, disconsolate

A foam-swept traveller

Rent by grief

Surrender to eternity

On a waxing tide.

 

Doom turns a secret:

In the depths, surcease.

Joylight shines

Out the back of lost causes.

    I love stories.
    My new novel, Sacred, is all about them. Publication info will be posted as soon as I have it. In the meantime check out Gemsigns, Binary and Regeneration, available wherever good books are sold.
