Tantamount

..However, not the same as!
Virtually the same, nearly - maybe?

Barren ground to stand,
Malleable feeling,
Floundering surreal heart.

How careless the deposit of your trust,
How shameful the reaction of your love,
How hopeful the neglectfulness of your time.

And now the future will be the present,
Will you have learnt regret ?

Smiling loveliness - I’ll dance some more with trust.

Clearing

It just is,
A slow, quiet,still rolling breath.

A moment without a memory of betrayal.

Walking confidently towards a familiar light,
A memory of me,
Remembering there is so much more to be.

Accepting more, feeling so free.

What does pain teach us ? How do we grow instead of hanging in limbo - insular, bitter and frozen? This poem is a human feeling commenting on the disregard and respectful journey we make with each other.

I Ate Compassion.

Incredible blustering sanctimonious pious stance.

A delicious decorous beaded dress, Twirling round our ankles as we rotate a dance in life.

Frozen steps and hankering desire, Devouring trust and steps of joy.

A maiden voyage starts to see port,
Holding tight, dear time,
Rocking backwards and forwards.

Journeyman take a heart and promises not to stay.
Greet the day,
Dance and grow some wings to fly away.

Pain plundering to invert and plan a twist to start to say,

‘ It’s all the same journeyman, we can smile our joy and light your heavy soul, but first let us find compassionate wings’

Betrayal End To Begin

Whirls round,
No sound,
It hurts so much when it’s howling.

It sits inside your stomach,
Staunch like ‘a stiff upper lip’ ...
It pinches too,
Like an ill fitting clip, or equally, an unruly blood sucking zip.

Blanket betrayal without any warmth,
Is a churning emotion to wear.

The flames raw,
Invisible fumes,
Loiter passively.

Memories are tarnished,
Doubling doubt,
Once politely unseen.

An energy,
It sticks like glue,
Until you learn to undo.

To be you.

World Book Day 🙂 Turning ‘ages ( 2012- LIGAR I) was made to celebrate the relationship we have with the written word memories and the book. Presently on permanent exhibition at the Westminster Reference Library, this art work documents memories, ancestry and our relationship with libraries and books.

Phil Gibby Area Director, South West, Arts Council England, said: “We’re really pleased to be supporting the tour of this thoughtful exhibition that explores our relationship with books and libraries through our National Lottery funded Grants for the arts scheme. Public libraries are trusted spaces, free to enter and open to all. In them, people can explore and share reading, information, knowledge and culture. And libraries play a broad role in their communities. It’s great to see that the exhibition has found a home in London’s West End where it can be shared on a more national platform.” ( Quote 2016 after it had finished a nationwide tour of city libraries )

Birmingham 🙂 What a day:) Acocks Green, Yardley, Small Heath, Bordsley Green, Coventry Rd and the City Centre. So much opinion, discussion, warmth,
hope and a general welcome. I ran out of time and will have to visit again to collect Julian Lloyd Webber’s print, more prints in the City Centre and then onto Harborne.

#fingerprintofunity SPOTtimespotTIME was greatly received and everyone really wanted say how they felt about unity, identity and digital emergence. I thoroughly enjoyed my day and here are just a few of the pics I managed to seek authorisation to take. Two striking altered responses were that initially there were more prints put on the edge of the circles and outside and then finally within. Also, authorisations for pictures was not generally received well. A lot of women were more keen to have their pics taken and a large majority of men refused. It was said SO many times that if I had filmed, or used an interview recording devise they would have walked straight past me. Their fingerprint was their voice of unity. Everyone embraced the unity and opportunity to be part of a larger comment. A great uplifting day...Panel still not finished.

Skylark

Purposeful poise,
Still staging,
Fluttering flight.

Heavenly high,
Surveying to sing to all,
Falling grace in prayer.

Da Capo.
