Canopy #Poetry Collaboration


This is my contribution to Neha’s (Forgotten Meadows) poetic collaboration “When Dreams Fade Away” Please take time to have a look at other contributions and perhaps join in.  It is open until November 30, 2016.

Serenade me with your smile whist I drown
in unkempt autumn, wondrous and wild. Read to me
from tomes with dusted jackets and aching spines
while sepia images with feathered edges flicker
through my mind as you wrap me in your world.

Cry for me a river but only so I can bathe among
the lilies festooned on its brow; I will soothe the ripples
till you are at peace again, and when you warm
my shivering skin by awakening faded dreams,
will you wrap me in your world?


Author: Anita Lubesh

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
