Stream Song (v. ii)

a weeping heart sinks toward water
in low levelling finds her kin
a stream she dreams sat by singing
rill harmonies of tears gush seaward
from all her dripping siblings, trampled

A. H / K.H-H (17th April & 29th June 2019)


lifeline in a stormy sea
still hope from all you’ve been
may be

clung to, never never let this go
pull on though all you feel
is tow

finding then as you’re pulled on
faith in the current in which
you’re gone

as faith dawns straightaway strong
find yourself drowning
in the sea of song

hope, faith, love
mighty three
hold weeping laughing
on love’s high sea

A. H / K. H-H (29th April 2019)

Stream Song

a weeping heart, drawn toward water
dreams of a stream singing back
rill harmonies tears gushing seawards
from all her hidden siblings, trampled

A. H / K. H-H (17th April 2019)

A Bead in the Bowl of a Sea’s Horizons

suddenly the sea has sunk beneath me
stomach dropped an open water rower’s ease
no land in sight adrift no freedom
in directionless dreams’ free heading
in weathering those perfect storms
the circumference has swollen to tsunami
gravitating back to envelopment
the sea as promised may feast on beads
that plead a strange perfect geometry
the sea to be left calm rippleless sated

A. H / K. H-H (1st January 2019)


today’s clarity
that life raft swum for, clung to,
barely seaworthy
