A smile of the moon

No cap, no sledge

Come hopping rockets

A crack in humanity

by Jem Croucher


You can still see the crack
in Tate’s turbine hall
Looking down from above
with no fear of a fall
But as a member and patron
back in twenty-o-eight
I marvelled then at the beauty

~ Bailey Bear, Duckling Dea and the Woodsmen

by A. L. O'Prunty

~ Bailey Bear, Duckling Dea and the Woodsmen

They gathered beneath the old oak tree
Bailey Bear and a duckling named Dea
Friends they’d been since left alone
When woodsmen took their mommies home

You are a longed for whisper,
Warming the heart
As the hearth does our home:
Speak to me of sultry summers

~ Direction From A Dream ~

by A. L. O'Prunty

Weep no more soft soul
Aged soul
Give not one minute
One second of thought
To a bridge long burned…
The aching in your heart
The agonizing of what was
Will return to you know more
Hold fast to the present
Release the living ghosts
