Pearl For Love – A Poem by Seb Farris

Tempestuous tide allay torrent on the shore, Silence scornful momentum you brought to the fore. Deliver your residue unto crag and crevice, Be absolved rogue storm of rising malice.

                                                    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                                                     …
