Hero Space

The space where I am a hero. I am my own savior. I am the knight in shining armor. I am free. I am strong. I am bold, courageous, daring, and brilliant. For in it, in that space, I cannot be contained. In that space lies my most powerful self....

Beer cans

I was walking past a sports field with my mother. ‘Look,’ she pointed, ‘pretty, isn’t it’. The side of the path was littered with beer cans, all of them green. There were so many of them that it wasn’t an ugly sea of litter, but more like a mosaic of...

The Forces of Nature

I’m climbing a wall. It’s a waste of my time and energy; it would be a lot easier to just lower the wall and step over it. But it’s not like that in my world. I’ve got to go up against the forces of nature.           ...

Welcome to the clouds

“Sir, could I interest you in some champagne?” “No, definitely not, my dear! Maybe a bit of sparkling water… What do you say, hmm?” A lady who is, to put it mildly, corpulent nudges the little chap sitting next to her, almost making him fall off his seat. What a...

He Has Grown Taller Than Me

Beginning to cycle faster, and feel the wind rushing against my skin and through my hair. The noise of the cars grows softer. Whenever I travel down this small street, it feels as though the colour of the sky changes, and the air tastes different. As though I’ve entered into...

So?

‘So…,’ I asked my husband, ‘have you got round to loving me yet?’ My husband was watching the football. They scored. With an excited ‘Yeeesss!’ in my ear, I walked back to my room in...

Why?!!

Voyager

Nestled beneath the heat shields of Voyager I is a microscopic piece of ice. It is the only water that has not yet evaporated, faded away or simply blown from the ship in the fifty-three...

Spring Blossom

It is Springtime. The water spider in the river looks toward the five silhouettes on the river bank. From time to time, these silhouettes flow into each other; a leg vanishing into a knee, an...

Burial Barbie

It’s unclear whether Barbie is a cool, older sister or a mother. Because Barbie can be anything she wants to be: a stewardess, an astronaut, the president, a bride. You can buy Barbies in a...

The Reward

I didn’t need anyone to comfort me. Skidmark didn’t need any help, Bunny could look after himself perfectly well. Out of nowhere came shrieking voices that ridiculed me: how weak, how soft, how fragile, how...

Poet Without a Pen

I am writing in your eyes As I listen to you As you laugh  I sigh my poem Between the gaps in the day While carrying the laundry basket  I stop at rhyme-words Folding your blanket Beneath the corners of the...

You At The Very Center

You might not know this, but a human body falls unnaturally fast when dropped from a great height. Faster than any could move at an intentional pace. So fast that it’s actually pretty hard to...

The emotional dance

Pure happiness, or  rather, an electricity that Explodes, takes flight,  spills out From an unknown place  into the deep Between the spirit and  the heart It isn’t just a simple  sequence of different  movements, But a power that unites  mind...
