‘Sea Scarf’ and other poems by Victoria Mosley

Didn’t know how to comment on her blog, so I’ll do it here: I really like Poethead poems. Although I am not a huge fan of poems and therefore, can not provide any insights etc. but there was imagery and mood/emotion. I particularly liked the one about the sea and the one for her father.

Poethead

Shiny shine

 
Milk on the turn
midnight history muffles
owl’s cry: narcissus pulsing
through dull earth to release
birthday colour.
 
I’ve become muted: afraid
of the shine shine glitter
hidden here as time
brushes messages
on parched skin.
 
Pacing corridor
always waiting for
sun – skim star-burn
impatient of humdrum
yearning magnificence.
 
Milk on the turn
garden hovers to unfurl
blossom of spring: new joy
pulsates at the click click clunk
of the white sea gate.
 

Sea scarf

 
Sea a black scarf
wrapped around the harbour
it’s cold tonight, so cold
the wind is taut
& moon hangs silent
huge immobile willing.
 
Sea sends whispers
of how it should be
sailors ghosts ride high
their songs mixed with
mermaids breath
the slink of seal at rest.
 
Sea calls to me
I’m immune caught up
beach sweeps a canvas
of wind ,water ,longing
