first kiss

FREE WRITING

I didn't expect to wait this long, in all honesty, I didn't know what I was expecting. I’d like to think that in years to come when I have done everything there is to do, I will look back at that moment and be happy or content. The evening in question was completely upon us and the ebony sky saw stars freckled in their multitudes. We sat on a bench far from the party but still in range to hear...

these here gravely callings

FREE WRITING

I am walking through a graveyard at the time of night 
I’m a welcome intruder 
A reminder of life
Though there is feeling in my veins and thought in my lungs 
Many lie around here unaware of what they have become 
I feel like a flower blooming in the dead of winter
The plants around me rejoice in my glory but still have to hold at their own shortcomings 
There is a strange peacefulness in these slow turnings 
As i walk...

27th of May

FREE WRITING

It was a sight to see
A camp of misfit kids 
Over a blood orange moon
That seemed to whisper into the night
As the fire cracked and spat 
'I am here' 
The faint sip of cider 
Did nothing on the lips of teenagers 
Who don't quite act their age 
Who’d rather sit in a story 
Or match knuckles like playing cards 
James spoke of a time a few summers past
Of a scout camp night hike
How we lost...

sailing along

FREE WRITING

I never learnt how to sail 
Which might present itself as a problem 
As i try and cross the north atlantic sea 
To recreate the battle of jutland
With norts and crosses
Armed with only a red sleeping bag
And a bottle of whiskey 
I will see 
If i can bare this how 
With only my why 
As i sail across the sea

Grandmas hands

PROMPT: Food Writing Competition 2021

I'm sure my since passed grandma 
Who I have never met 
Guides my hands when I cook 
For I don't remember obtaining the knowledge to produces plates of comfort 
the way I seem to do 

I imagine her - a woman whose my middle name is devoted to 
Glowing like embered caramel 
Hovering her fig-like hands gently over mine 
And smiling sweetly over my solitary shoulder 
​Smelling like ground coriander and cumin 
Guiding 
As I dice my families ginger 
And bruise...

what is it like to sleep on the shoulder of someone

FREE WRITING

Having someone rest their head on your shoulder 
In that moment it is pure serenity 
A trust that drifts by like a boat on a salty sea 
Knowing someone will never be as vulnerable 
As they are when they walk to the world of the yonder
Yet they chose you to sleep by 
She had ginger hair tho she’d never care to admit it 
Head upon my shoulder and my head upon her frontal 
I'd never felt peace like it ...

Vergissmeinnicht, Loving Lena

FREE WRITING

‘Steffi, i have to go’
‘ich weiß, Lena’ - i know 
They both knew their words were without meaning as they stood there  - two bodies both young and fickle disentangling themselves from the thought of each other. Preparing I suppose. The bus had come; its noisy convulsions broke the now-aging silence between them. The time had come and as they stood holding a gaze neither one wished to acknowledge the reality of the conclusion that stood before them.
Steffi...
