Mercury Is The Moment

Poem By Anji Carter

Will I be drawn by what I knew before?
Life is a whirlpool, I am very small.
Dreams are like clouds, evaporate too soon.
They carry thoughts and aspirations,
Like steam around the moon.
Nothing truly permanent,
So the question has no answer.
Sands shift, waves drift,
Clouds fall in tumbling rainbows from the skies.
Don't ask why?
Nature runs unfixed by word or deed
Nothing and everything changes in its time.
Time never runs out
Just in different directions.
Mercury is the moment
It is all we shall ever hold.

You Began With Me

No matter how far you go from me in this life -
You began with me.
My breaths gave you your first taste of air,
My heart pumped my blood into your veins

The Seasons Of Thought

Sometimes my mind can feel so strange,
An endless teeming mountain range.
A snow of thoughts, falling swift,
Into chasms, into drifts.

I'Ve Learnt How To Walk In The Sunshine

I've learned how to walk in the sunshine,
There's plenty for any who try.
The curtains are open, it's daytime,
There's not much to see in the night.

Awareness

These strange confused contusions, are they a part of me?
And if they are, then why are they?
I have a mind that runs at tangents, tying itself in knots,
It's always getting lost.

Sweet Baby Sugar-Lips

Sweet baby 'Sugar Lips',
His minuscule Lolita.
Crooning,
Coaxing kisses,
