Big Triku ‘The River’

Gradual hidden

mass scouring rocks – strong sunlight

flashing over black.

~

The world gently bends around

the silent water, my energy

draining down to the darkness.

~

Delicate branching

fractals crossing land, pouring

softly to the sea.

Note: this poem is a spin off concept from the poem ‘Swept Away’ (Menu, 2018, Poems, Swept Away)

Big Triku ‘Christmas Tree’

We searched all day to

find a Christmas tree. Our first

day spent together.

~

There are fleeting moments when

the whirlwind stops, and silence pours back

in, just me, the cat, the tree.

~

Points of light pierce through,

I find myself again in

memories of you.
