To immerse

myself in verse

my yearning and my desire,

languidly drowning

in the sea of rhyme.

Finding meaning and rationale

in metre, movement and measure,

making sense of the world

stringing words together.


Exquisite agony

As I labour over


implication and


Seeking symbolism

into words transposed,

image to communicate.


Inner voice made audible

Impressions translated

Perception into reality formed.
