October 15, 2008
So I just realised I've actually posted 2 poems today and I haven't written a single thing otherwise! It all seems very unfriendly.
I spent a long time fussing over what to call my blog. I wanted something profound in the top corner; I'm hoping something amazing will come to me soon. I've also discovered that I find it a lot easier to write outside. I'll be doing that more often.
I saw a tree today and was immeasurably inspired to write my haiku.
I'm probably going to go to bed soon. I like this, it's like a stream of consciousness. But a little more disorientated!
More writing to come!
A tangle of wooden childrens' limbs are in my way,
Please, forgive me if I spread you out on the forest floor,
If I flex my heels, splay my heart and strain my toes through your
Humble mistakes. When all I wanted was my pathway.
They suck my skin like glass, man-made but beautiful,
A paradox, their grasping fingers falling through my outstretched arms,
Blind fumbling for myself amidst their silent cries and helpless palms
But I cannot return to them when love is null.
Mother Earth sips from my crunching keys
Inside a piano, the evergreen hands of God
Shyly tuned by brooklime beetles
For eternity, immortality in her heartbeat.
