agapanthus globe


Inverted in space,

suspended in the north

with a southerly persuasion,

my heart grown in two,



Bejewelled moments

I want to break off to keep,

but my weeping hands

sift the fractures in wrong places.


I hold on instead –

ached to this perfect petal,

floated away on familiar

rivered Breeze.

    oh Vanessa you make me smile and weep at the same time, I can’t decide which word, or verse or line is the one that makes my heart ache the most, I feel such longing in your words

    Lovely poetry Vanessa. One of my favourite flowers and your words will bring a different meaning the next time I see one.
