Volition: A Savvy Poem

  Being volatile, my spark evolves into a raging bonfire – flames, red-hot and amber, against bubbles of calming green.  

36: Love Is

What is love, if not that feeling of elation experienced is one heeds the ‘stop’ sign for a moment (or lots of moments) and notices … … notices, the contrasting colours in the land where we stand?   The flowers in our hedgerows: The leaves at our feet: The homes of our little folks: And…

Vagabond: A Savvy Poem
