"all the tales to tell

spells waiting to be

remembered and repeated"

A POEM CAN DRAW YOU INTO ITS WORLD

 

A parallel existence where magic and transformation are possible

Tales of the Sea (excerpt)

 

Wrapped in a bunk, in duvet down

wind moans through his Cornish room

two years old and already sold to its lure

arranging wooden boats in his windowsill

before he climbs aboard,

clutching a shell to his ear;

he hopes for a mermaid's whisper.
