Poem By ...C Cleverly

Show me a crystal that is clear or a clear way worth walking

Or a forgiveness appreciated that was just given away

Or a wise word heard when foolish men are talking

Or a prize valued more than love that was not prised away.

Then show me bright lights, make up, entrance and stage exit

Show me nights we existed, entranced, dreamed of, made love,

Blue moon, rainbow, or a star fall that sheamed like a bullet

And I'll show you an eagle that found the peace of a dove.

Comments about Eagle

An absoluteness shorn by wind.
Yellow sea, isles of yellow rocks;
Free of contradictions.
No walls, portals nor windows,


Cross rose
Prices rose
People rose
Hunger rose


O Madiba! Madiba your ship has finally come to rest
Rest now, now rest, for peace was your bequest.
Humiliated, disgraced, yet in captivity you chose
By embracing your enemy, you learnt and rose.


A breath caught as a drop.
Caught as bejewelling dew
on frozen twigs, cold and dead:
what's breath was water was ice.


The peace of a mind
No longer maligned
By ire or fire.


Paradigm unlocks truths made in paradox,
As softest water wears down the hardest rocks,
Dark-nest wombs child-guide the brightest light,
Made in silence they scream with wild delight
