Best Poem of Gillian Thurlby

Ode To Summer

Season of barbeques and ripening fruit
Discomfort under too mature a sun
Of burgers poorly cooked and sausages
Crammed in a grubby, stale and tasteless bun

The wasps are nesting underneath the eaves
The ants march up and down a length of hose
Cat stretches out in any patch of shade
Disdainfully watching all from down his nose

Is it the thunder or a rumbling gut
That causes us a feeling of unease
As we unstick our bodies from a chair
To weed the soft fruit cage on creaking knees

We greeted long hot days with avarice
Now it’s the supermarket ...

A Marriage (1)

Actions, not words, declare his love
Phrases of endearment do not pass his lips
Kisses tell what he would speak of
His thoughts transmitted through his finger tips

This is my moment of maturity
Reassurance must be put aside
Never knowing if he’s here with me
In silence, can my heart stay open wide
