Forever journeys

(I like this poem very much, written by the lovely Luke Tipene...check out his art blog here)


There you are, where you were
right back at the front of my mind.
Elliot with Angeles drew you out
into my eyes
to populate the day, again

with colour, and weight and measure,
full and fragrant
like a Marlboro Light after a seven dollar steak

to fill

white lawns with winter light
and scarf torn sandstone corridors,
deep pocket alleyway kisses,
and the touch of the harbour at midnight

And journeys
forever journeys
of a hand that needs to hold.

Deep in the depths of chord and chorus I find you there

beyond the world
within the truth of it,
believing its little promises
