Might put it in there

Posted on January 30, 2011


being there.

Soft and warm the first thoughts of awareness

Drift into consciousness with a background thump of

A new hangover behind my eyes and in my dry throat.

Your yielding body pushes against mine and,

Your smell fills me with silent smiles.

I keep my eyes closed for another minute

Savouring the flavour of this snug moment:

Unconditional and unbridled. Unhindered

By past and future

Just now.

This is one of the poems that didnt make it into my new booklet “the Essential Contentment of Futile wanderings”

I’m not quite sure why but now that I’ve re-read it i think I might do a last minute edit and squeeze it in there
