Hannah Gilchrist Poems

Autumn Day

I feel two feet taller today
I feel the warmth of the sun on my face
I feel the wind swirling around me,
Drawing my clothes


No need to count the hairs on my head;
You carefully manufactured each one.
No need to memorise the colour of my eyes; you designed their every hue.
Your seal is imprinted on my fingertips.

Hot Iron

Attitude or art
Brylcreem or bangs
Combed or curly
Dapper or dangling

Beautiful Darkness

Bruised reed and and smouldering wick
The wish to die just a little bit
Beautiful darkness
Pressing me in


Hannah Gilchrist Quotes

11 June 2017

I'm writing a poem on anomia. I can't think of a thing to say.

Pride is like barbed wire fencing around the heart. It keeps people out. It isolates the one within. It is a hinderance to generosity. And anyone who tries to surmount it, risks getting badly injured.
