Infinite leaves

 

In an endless forest

of countless trees

and infinite leaves

of every type

shape and colour

I adore

the perfect leaf

that is you.

When she falls

art-by-wangjie-li

 

When She Falls

 

She has that look.

Something in the eyes.

In the line of her nose.

The tilt of her chin.

The set of her jaw.

She is bright, brave and assured.

But when she falls,

she will fall.

.

She has that smile.

Something in the curve.

In the line of her mouth,

The shape of her lips.

The show of her teeth.

She is cool, collected and poised.

But when she falls,

she will fall.

.

She has that way.

Something in the words.

In the sweep of her thoughts.

The pride in her voice,

The ice in her veins,

She is proud, aloof and secure.

But when she falls,

she will fall.

.

Oh, she will fall.

Minor Tragedy

 

On a human scale

it was a very

minor tragedy.

 

After all

no one was maimed

or tortured

or raped

or killed.

 

No one was

made homeless

without food

or shelter

or country.

 

No one was lost

forever

at sea.

 

On a human scale

it was a very

minor tragedy.

 

Just two lovers

two hearts

two minds

two bodies

two souls

once joined

coming adrift.

 

But it still

hurt like fuck.

Carry Fire

 

You probably won’t have heard this one – I only discovered it yesterday – it is off a brand new album released a couple of days ago.

It is by the legendary Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant who has being making great music all his life – he is now 70. If you like music of quality, depth and variety you should listen to his solo work.

“Carry Fire’ is the title track off his latest album. The song (one of longing, pain and perhaps regret) is an intoxicating mix of rock and Middle Eastern influences (which I adore). His extremely talented band – which includes fiddle player extraordinare Seth Lakeman – produce a track of considerable musical beauty and intense, restrained energy.

I am currently playing this on repeat and becoming more intoxicated by its hyponotic power on every listen.

Oh, and the video is a delight too.

(This is another of my irregular posts about songs I like that you might not know)

‘Carry Fire’ written by © Plant, Adams, Baggot, Fuller, Smith, Tyson and performed by Robert Plant and the Sensational Shape Shifters

CARRY FIRE

I sit and wait for you
Like so many others do
Just like they do for me
Well so I do for you

I’d carry fire for you
Here in my naked hands
I’d bare my heart to you
If you will understand

I was a stranger there
Inside your promised land
That turned me inside out
And turned me upside down

I’d carry fire for you
Here in my naked hands
I’d bare my heart to you
If you will understand

Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you
Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you

I’m reaching out for you
Across the broken gate
I feel the gathering years
Beyond these lonely wastes

I’d carry fire for you
Here in my naked hands
I’d bare my heart to you
If you will understand

Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you
Just like
Just like
Just like I scarred you

Out of the ordinary

 

There are those of us

perhaps like you

and certainly like me

who live our lives

wanting something

more

something dark

and decadent

something wild

and beautiful

something exotic

erotic

and mysterious

something out

of the ordinary.

Butterflies

art-by-olga-gouskova

 

Despite everything

she will not admit

to the cause

and the reason

and the truth

behind the wild

and exotic

and decidedly erotic

butterflies

that flutter their wings

so wildly

so madly

so desperately

in her belly.

Written by me a year ago. I like it, so another outing. And surely there are always butterflies.

New

 

I have seen so much

I have done so much

I have had so much

I have felt so much

I have known so much

yet you

just by being you

make it new

once more.
