Seashells
I found a matched pair
   Of broken seashells.
They were halved, but not from the same whole.
Each orange half-moon had been trampled
   By a careless tourist with eyes only for the waves;
Each had been bored through and gnawed at from the inside
   By some seafaring worm;
Each had been beaten by water and stone,
   Battered by wind, tossed by the gulls.
Their tips had been worn down to points like wings.
It was as thought hey flew together and met in my path.
I threaded wire through them to make earrings,
   So that the pair would never be apart.

Ella Violo - Chapter 2
Ella liked autumn.  The sun didn't rise too early or too late, and the air was still warm while gaining an air of crispness.  She rose on the morning of the thirteenth with an enormous yawn.  A mouse in the corner echoed her sentiment.
"Good morning," she said to the little creature.  The mouse skittered back into its home in an old holey chest against the wall.  "Gotta get a cat," muttered Ella as she threw off her blankets and poked Tomas and Alejandro awake.
Maria was already up and about, frying eggs in the kitchen.  She was only two years older than Ella, but she already looked like a mother.  Her brown hair was tied up in a messy knot at the base of her head, and smile lines were appearing around her red lips.  The smallest thief, a four-year-old boy with quick fingers, clung to Maria's apron as she swept around the room, stirring bubbling pots of porridge and soup.
"Up already, Ella?  Must

Sisters
We are the worriers, the wishers
on low-flying Boeings, willing them up and
away from our homes and businesses.
We found ourselves in old England in
New England, winters with no heat and
summers of more weight.
We see love in white and wrinkled faces,
in cupcakes and pencil boxes, in train schedules
and in ordinary time, cut time, and thyme patches.
We may sit quietly but we will never be
silenced save by shouts and each other's
crying-shoulders.
We were the perfect girls, and we are the working
women of east and west, the white North,
wit and will and worship.

Literature
Beginning Form - Yu bei shi
Centre the Universe on this pin,
stand here at the head and stroke calm.
Imagine the Italian coastline,
fair and clear rolling water.
Focus on the distance inside,
hear the tranquillity of roses pearling awake.
Stand apart and empty, chaste serenity,
innocent purity concentrating on not thinking.
Stretch to see the first golden maroon leaves,
it's Autumn in your soul, rejuvenation approaches.
Organise the fortified structures within,
inhale twice slowly, and breathe for the first time.
Curve for the placidity of the lake,
no swords to hand to carve the legend in twain.
Prepare the warrior inside for leaving,
surround him in joy and power.

Summer's Girl
I am gathering flowers for my girl.
She waits beneath the cherry tree,
couched among the leaves upon the grass.
Her beauty is no small thing,
and through the shady boughs
Summer's breath turns the twist of her braid.
The sun is sweeping clear the morning,
turning over slowly into midday
before expiring into unseeing darkness.
These garnered blooms still hardy though,
despite the shortened moments of their existence,
they will colour the chestnut hair I love.
In truth, I cannot stem this smile,
this attitude of quiet pleasure;
she has distilled it like music.
I am gathering flowers for my girl.
She waits beneath the cherry tree,
couched among the leaves upon the grass.

fallen angel
finding this figure,
just standing in my room,
the moon shining through my curtains
as clear as the sun through the clouds.
this hazey statue,
standing before me
a pale grin amoung her face.
she's younger than  i remember
the skin more firm and soft,
different to what was in my memory.
this angel ,
my angel
my guardian
suddenly turns black in the moonlight.
her dress turns
to a black tight  leather suit
her hair
from blonde ringlets, to a black mass
her wings
as white as silk to black tatters.
i awake.
nothing.
was this a dream, or  real?
was a message sent from above or below
confused
i think.
my angel,
my fallen angel
another visit
no more than that.

Literature
The Life in Your Soul
Visit the life in your soul.
Manage the worm threading into your mind.
Disturb the flow of danger.
Overturn the vehicle Emotion.
Lever up the cover over privacy,
and clamour for recognition.
Infiltrate the legacy
that deliberation bequeaths.
Imagine the promise hidden in anger,
and the virginity of that satisfaction.
Harmonise the function of your heart,
and that of Reason.
Encourage the Universe to expand in you,
to take the fruit from your lips,
and function as a friend.
Throw the caution of words
upon the flames licking your heels,
and stigmatise your furtive pleasures.
Clot the feeling,
throw that morsel back,
and stopper imagination for Truth.
Let the danger of imminent closeness
sharpen the splinter of Humanity inside,
and allow the lover inside out.
