tuesday

Alone, I left you
to the quietude of seagulls.
It was a windy afternoon
when I went,
your small arms
lifted towards me,
trembling like
shutters,
hinges of rust.

Your words are striking. They hit me like stones. You have this way of making me shudder, of moving me.

I try to elude some of those stones, but the images they create in my mind's eye are so strong.

You have a gift to convey words the image and meaning you exactly want them to say. I like it very much. The sordid and the light.

Be careful, Clare, I believe you're well on your way to becoming a serious writer and poet!

Thank you for writing.
