Simmering Changes


Hot and cold,
warm and mild
until the sun strikes
her golden child,
and hurtles us off course
while the wind sends us chasing
after our own off beat feet,
ablaze and blistered.

Frost and blizzard
hail and ice
until the sun strikes
not once but twice,
and calls a thaw of peace
while we drown in the melting ground
filling up our heaving chests,
crying and dying.

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.
