Two girls we’re beheaded in Morocco last week,

mother says.

Doubtful fear clouds hopes and dreams.

To reside in this safe place, we never leave.

 

From one warm home to another,

both imaginative, but this one is hungry.

Soft words of reassurance, light up eyes.

We are those who chase life.

 

Walking with myself in the dusk,

I happen across the remains of a bird.

Only it’s head it to be found.

Once wore a Magpies coat.

 

One for sorrow, so they say.

But to find a head, no body,

must be better than a body with no head.

Here I have gained the head of a bird.

 

With this good omen I head home,

only to find the first of the spring daises. 

Certainly after all,

a good omen.

Wake winking at the moon.

First breath of dawn warming the horizon.

Coaxed into this shared reality by your kind words.

And we lie here for a little while,

under the moons gravity.

Basking in that morning hope,

of infinite possibilities.

Silver light smiles at me as I follow the days rhythms. 

consciousness swims down the gentle stream,

of sunrise.
