The Holy Man – A Poem by Becky Bye

There the holy man sits Over-hanging shadows casting his eyes Sunken and in despair Empty and complacent as the black cap that rests at his feet.      The illustrious debts of shabby undertones Convulsing against empty wallets and moth eaten clothes.  His wooden staff lays at his side, magic man or royalty as his faiths …

A Question of Trust – By Lucy Hermitage

I have little confidence in …

Plentiful Time – A Poem by Lucy Hermitage

                                                    The boiling of the kettle is                                                     Ample time                                                     To prepare the bag and cup.                                                     The toddler only learns to                                                     Wriggle                                                     Once we have perfected care                                                     Of its still self.                                                     Nail polishes take their                                                     Beautiful time                                                     To dry – allowing that minute                                                     Of rest.                                                     The credits                                                     …
