Poem By ...C Cleverly

Nails on ankles scratch for cures,
For woes and vex that foes cause
And dystopic eyes focus on distant shores
While wisdom waits.

Blame bites blood to the bone,
Blunt words break wear and wight,
Vane wit vainglories vaults and wanes
While wisdom waits.

A life without needs, needs meaning.
Meaning meaning quietude in love:
Salmon, a sip, jamon, a tapas of brave patatas;
While wisdom waits.

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
