Amber Light Memories

Poem By Melanie Fairhurst

guttering of the candle, the slightest warmth tickling my skin.
Half shadow half amber light memories.
shudder of flowing water
nothing sound of my breathing
in and out,
moving with the wind
moving with the earth.
round moon thumping with my heartbeat,
thumping with my loins.
soft metal tinkle of my small splashes,
my guiding movements.
in line, toes pointing to the seductive moon,
heads towards my future
my past
my now.
The moon growing bigger and smaller,
thrusting to my sight.

I feel as though a part of me is missing
and it is
because you carry a piece of me with you

Sacred Night

Earth at my back
the sky above me, a starry wake.
A tree curling over me
like a wave about to break.

Your death will inspire a thousand more.
The flames of your funeral pyre will ignite those of your fallen comrades.

We Walked Home

The bruised thunderhead clouds had sulked in the sky since dawn.
The cold wind had played games with the leaves until they were whirled up into the sky and lost to us forever.
