Throbbing and dry. These are the eyes, Straining to see you, Through the darkness. Dimming then bright. Those are the stars, Splashing around you, Wonky star light.
Poem: I left you sleeping
I left you sleeping to worship Our God in heaven. I left your warmth and comfort And walked into the cold wind And the icy rain. But when I sat before God And asked him to bless you, To greatly bless you A new comfort, like no other Settled over me. A love, like no … Continue reading Poem: I left you sleeping
Poem: Let me count the ways
Let me count the ways you love me... An eon’s not enough in time. You call me, call me, call me. And I continue to hide.

That light grows, like you in my womb More than love – something else… An awareness that you, little you, Will change our lives forever. We … Continue reading Baby
Hello Ash Wednesday
Excuse the reflective mood. Lent starts today, so it's got me thinking a bit more about others. I stumbled across this while flicking through Pinterest this morning: Very much the theme for my life at the moment, my new job working for ASLAN, putting pen to paper again (ok, tapping on keys) with HJ - it … Continue reading Hello Ash Wednesday

Up the hill
Slick pavements, Water dappled cars. Air heavy as the blacked sky. But, it's not raining. Yet. Snippets of swoosh, spish of Six am traffic, And Kings of Leon play In a Cold Desert. This time, I'm faster, further. But the hill feels steeper. Burning lungs, knee twinge, and embarrassment, As an old man cycles past … Continue reading Up the hill
New year’s run
So, after a hiatus: Christmas, I donned the karrimors. Wiping sleep from my eyes to log on to the Marathon App. My hood up to greet the dark morning: Rain free, cold, splatterly puddles. I spotted 20 odd Christmas trees lying on their sides, like New Year's party casualties. Birds sang loud as I raced … Continue reading New year’s run
