Lady Serenity

When Lady Serenity saw me, she swerved. Her detour a reminder not to dwell on anxiety. I want to absorb the tempo of my female hero. Go with her on a journey. We’ll decide.

My equations calculating density, Tidal waves and unremitting desire. I want to be an inventor; to existContinue reading “Poetry Writing Challenge #15: Saltoun Sea, California”


I’m holding a sign that reads… Holy Smoke Is Foreplay. You brought me to an amazing place, you introduced me to my higher self.  My reality is shifting to accept this nucleus. Somewhere I’m naked with you. There’s a photograph of us making out in front of a mural. We have somewhere to exist. It’s unlikeContinue reading “HOLY SMOKE IS FOREPLAY”


In my unremarkable corner of the world I’m thinking what’s really going on? Whilst it’s been widely publicised that humanity has reached the tipping point in favour of the Age of Aquarius and today is the newly-inaugurated NATIONAL HOLIDAY TO COMMERATE LETTING GO OF THE PAST COMPLETELY: all that my cynical brain can come upContinue reading “Spirit?”

Memory of the World
