Sailing Upriver Together

Poem By Wendy Webb

</>Intertwined across the years,
souls brushing shared memories.
Tranquil harbour of our dreams,
anchored on our mooring line -
our rigging tangled, hatch shut,
buoyant in the setting sun.
We sail the tide upriver,
navigating a long reach;
plane-sailing uncharted floods.
Spliced, we steer an even course,
sail billowing in the breeze -
crewing with Captain’s First Mate.

Scuba Diving

Peering into fluid dimness,
dense with fear. Intense foreboding
overwhelms her orbit bubble.

Slowly turning from side to side,

Bonfire Night

Sticky toffee in my pocket
glues warm fingers beside the fire,

Caesarea Philippi

Tranquil among the springs
and lush vegetation.

Eyes Of The Beholder

</>Bent down by the weight of the years,
shuffling by with arthritic joints.
Deep crevices carved by the tears,
massed in a disorganised web.

Autumn Colours At Blickling Hall

“This way, ” he said “and let’s explore, ”
I followed him towards the door.
Chimneys I noticed, rising tall,
and windows all around the Hall.

Perspectives On Jane Eyre

You cannot see me
Behind all the books,
Hid in a corner
Away from your looks.
