The Blue Note

The call finally comes with information of my start date. To celebrate I tell everyone who cares, everyone except Blue and because I cannot tell him I tell you. Yesterday I performed some blog admin (I added posts from 2015-2019 into the music category) and came across the seven about Blue. As I read them…

Connected Beyond Reason (16/103)

At first I thought it was Gold Glitter that made you look over at me and smileDid shimmering sparkles evoke memories and playful happy times?Was it in my carefree nature or twinkling friendly eyes? Was it the youthful manner in which I welcomed surprise?A wondrous bright light that attracts beamed across from me to youEncouraging…

Shared Silence

I awoke through the early hours this morning with a pain in my right ear that would not go away. It reminded me of the time that I lay with my head on Neo’s lap whilst he ran his fingers across my hair. My ear had hurt then too so he cupped his palm, blew…

Young Observations

Painted Plumes

Once I believed I was an exotic bird, drawing you to me with my brightly coloured feathers. I had been spreading gold glitter here and there around the island, and was often found flying topless along the streets, perfectly painted (in my own style) from the waist up, encouraging others to let me adorn them too.…

I had crashed out on a spare bed in a multi roomed apartment across town. I look over at Janessa’s sleeping sunkissed beautiful body, her luminous raven black hair sprawling out across a small pillow.
