  1. This is so beautiful Kiersty … I love how you’ve used ‘wanting, hoping, in the same room, burning’ …

    PS. Merry Christmas dear poet, I hope you have a wonderful festive season and celebrate in glorious style! 🙂

  2. Beautiful and passionate with an urgency, not only in the language and subject matter you’ve chosen, but the form suits this poem to a T. Do you mind if I link to you on my blog tomorrow as a post? This is too good not to share with those who drop in to my blog.


    How now
    Burning silently
    Perfume turning into smoke scrolls
    Arabesques in action
    No wander my wonder
    Time will still remain
    A flavour opportunity

    How now
    There’s no how why
    Just now standing still
    Under the wisteria waves
    Nudity from down below
    Roots of the rain
    Perfection in full mind

  4. Thank you so much for your comments everybody – and your poem, gmc. Life is a little hectic here right now but I am really looking forward to reading all your work as soon as things quieten down a little. Thank you again!

  5. Love this one, Kiersty! I know time doesn’t wait, but what have you done to your clock? Christmas has been and gone and I missed it all… 26 December ALREADY! Bwahahaha!

  6. it feels like a clarity of language so distinct and delicate that it can literally suspend the moment with silk strings
    and i love the way i can recognize in it the importance of feeling in such a unique way. every kind, its really brilliant. it’s goodnight gorgeous. happy new year kiersty! xxx
