Worlds. P.Rimmer.

The cool chill of morning,
A moment of remembrance,
Moving from one world to the next,
One of thought and fancy,
To one of interpretation,
Of the senses.
This ancient contract of renewal,
Between a spinning globe,
And a fiery gaseous mass,
We are host,
We are visitor,
We are hostage to the sensory,
In this waking world,
This tranquil moment,
Between worlds is where I ... See more

An old one.

She Waits. P.Rimmer.

She waits patiently,
There are no tears,
In the pale light of dawn.
A low hanging moon,
Gives consent,
To a tentative sun,
Their light mingles,
Silver becomes luminous,
Colour is born,
The air is thick,
I could spread it on my bread,
At once warm and cooling,
Carries a tang of sea,
A hint of cool brine,
And she waits patiently,
For a lover?
A child?
An arm full ... See more

To Hell and Away. P.Rimmer.

On the alter of the market,
Nations are laid,
Their hearts ripped out,
Fed to the fattened,
The obese privateers,
Who preach Milton Friedman,
The self evident prophet,
Of the profit motive motif,
To hell and away,
With the sick and the lame,
To hell and away,
With the dignity of the working class,
You're nothing but serfs,
To be ground down,
Starved, made to ... See more

King of Cool. P.Rimmer.

I got my jazz head on,
Stretched long and low,
Kind of Blue fills the room,
With dreams in indigo shades,
Of coolest, deepest Blue.
I am transported,
I dream dreams of summers azure,
White sails on water,
The wine dark sea,
What is that?
I am in a reverie,
Sacred sound,
Pure slippery ethereal,
Some kind of Jazz heaven,
Air heaves sultry,
I am away in dreams,
Of indigo ... See more

Vermilion. P.Rimmer.

Vermilion,
Red gold glory,
Desultory lazy rain,
Splashes fat fitful slashes,
Run down my window,
This northern air,
Has spring on it's cool breath,
Or maybe I am just done with winter,
With short shrift days,
Parsimonious sun,
I long for the fulling days,
Fat sun swelling warm,
I feel a change in these chilled bones.
Wishful thinking or no,
Time marches relentless
Cold ... See more

DANCING by Sonya Young

She walks slowly into the crowded bar
And buys herself a drink
Takes a seat in a quiet corner
Willing herself not to think.

She cradles the glass of wine in her hands
Drinking to block things out
It slides down her parched throat
Relaxing and soothing all of her doubts.

Wearing a gorgeous floaty dress
And very high, sexy shoes
She has come here for a reason
To dance ... See more

Siren Dreams. P.Rimmer.

I sing the song,
Of siren dreams,
Where mist hugs land,
Obscures moss encrusted,
Spectral trees,
Mystery profound,
Haloed here, now,
Nascent sun,
This world a holy glow,
Blessed, we are blessed,
We breathe cool ethereal airs,
Secrets swirl,
Tantalisingly near,
I could scoop this in the cup of my palms,
Hold it up in outstretched arms,
An offering for an old God,
Long ... See more

SERPENTS by Sonya J Young
The wind howls hauntingly, with the
voices of the insane
Gutters overflow with all of the
blood and all the rain
Bones throb so loudly with such
brittleness and pain
A swarm of passing wasps kiss you
but no one is to blame
Twisted words and images never
cease to assault the brain
Nerves so bashed and battered
there is nothing left to gain
Screamed for help for so long ... See more
