Barb and Feathers

Barb wire defence
Fails when the Magpies lay claim
Warbling a new day

A Gift

Bury the sublime
The unparalleled emotion
Of soaring freedom
All but ephemeral
In its addictive sweetness
Bury it deep
So as not to dwell
On what is no longer
Where it can be kept safe
Indebted to the universe
Our paths crossed
I can savour the all consuming joy
In a heartbeat
The connection never ceases
I soar in the sublime.

Door Maker

Standing looking at the door

All is not what it appears
Brissly doormat acts in response to the soul
Crushed and broken with constant tread
A coat of varnish hides the fine cracks

On the inside the door is worn down
The cracks are pronounced quail
Long sadness trapped within
Seeking to be set free

Access is only from the outside
made by a different hand
There is no handle on the inside
 This door was made to closet
One side oppression the other sanctuary
Access was made to be functional

Happiness and contentment
Is in the crafting of a handle from within
The hand trembles, slowly turning
Not knowing what is on the other side.
