 The secret behind Christmas.


My name is Keegan … 9

My name is Keegan and the Bwbachod loomed in front of me.  Actually today it was more like a race car in design and no Doire faced its surface.

“She’s happy today, she wants to go home.” Raon, the Paw man announced.  “Just remember to always be polite to her.  You don’t have any relationship with her.”  Continue reading….

Outside the Gorge

The Chasm deep and dark

The coolness hidden in it’s depths

Tries in vain to equalise

From the heat outside the Gorge


A footstep echos on stony bottom

A drip and algae

A fern clings to fragile existance

Hiding from the desert outside the Gorge


The sun it wins no battles

To light the bottom and the way

At most perpetual twilight

Preventing the mirages outside the Gorge

Daily Prompt: Patina

Green patinas mark the surface

Hiding copper underneath

The pure pale orange tones

The metal that glissens

That conducts our electricity

Yet it is hidden under plastic or patina

Its age unknown

Is this like humans

Hiding under our skin

Can we ever really know who lies within?

You wait for news

On tenterhooks

Unable to bear it

Unable to not

Will the news

Be good or bad

Perhaps indifferent

Angst and anger

Fear and dread

Nothing you can do

No words that can be said

You wait

Fill your time

Be busy

Not not be present

Your mind overseas

In a generic waiting room




Waiting to hear if she survived.

Each minute, each second

It is the last

Once used, gone forever

It is in the past

Each hour, each day

Never to repeat

This week, that month

Once it is gone, hit delete

Every season, every year

Every cycle, every life

The child grows

The adult grows

The grass grows

The trees grow

To grow is to age

To age is to die

Life is a cycle that ages

Every second, every minute

Never to repeat

Tears Falling

At some stage in our lives we experience grief. When there was a person to grieve it is more understandable. When it is a result of a miscarriage, there is almost a stigma about it.  “Shake yourself off and move on,”  for many of us it is not quite as simple as that.  For those who experience recurrent miscarriages, every subsequent loss can get harder.  This is one of my poems about miscarriage and the guilt I felt at the time.
