Sliver of Ice...



My dreams

Hover

Like footprints

In the snow

Frozen moments

To savour

Before they melt

And go

To leave me

With the cold

Reality of life

In that

Within each dream

There hides

A sliver of ice

Death...



Death skips from

One breath to another


Grazing on the soul


Between heartbeats

Never mind...



My fear is not

To lose my mind

My fear is that

My mind I'll find!

Themes and Dreams...




The world we now live in

Holds no place for dreams

And hope is but a memory

Of a redundant theme

Amazon review by: Bodica

"When I found out this long-awaited collection was out at last I bought it straight away and wasn't disappointed. I loved this collection of dark gargoylian grumblings from the poetress Lynn Gerrard. Lynn takes humankind and lays open every hidden emotion. She made me laugh, made me sad and then made me laugh again. A fabulous collection of emotive prose which can be read again and again to find new depths."

Feathers in the Park...



Oh Heavenly day

Oh glorious sight

When shimmering sunshine

Replaces night

And on the lake

Where reeds do grow

Gentle waters ebb and flow

As moorhen sits

Upon her nest

Young tucked safely

'Neath her breast

Whilst doting mate

Brings twigs and sticks

Securing home for

Mother and chicks



Oh Hellish day

Oh woeful sight

When hungry creatures

Creep in the night

And on the lake

'Tween reeds that grow

The water ceases

To ebb and flow

As moorhen, vanished

From her nest

Leaves behind

The mournful mess

Of egg shells empty

In the dark

And the scattered sadness

Of feathers in the park

Womb to Tomb...



From womb to tomb

That's how it goes

And where we end up

No one knows

And where we've been

Nobody cares

'Cos wherever we are

We are not there
