Words


as wood is grey and bricks red dust
fallen beams church each space
as pigeons dance under slate

a house with unlocked doors
under a sky beclouded
each window glazed with light.

    I really like this Leslie. I like the way your words flow as water over stones. Each word holds it's own resonance. I can touch and smell them. I can see how they ripple in contrast to the space between them. I really like way you have written this. You have inspired me.
    Thank you :) (Report) Reply
