Let the mermaids in my teacup distract us for a while

200 Big Thank-You’s

Just a big, warm telepathic hug of gratitude to each of you, my lovelies, for helping me reach the 200 Followers milestone.

Thank you all for joining me on this journey.

Much love


Haikus – The Dance of Echoes

Travelling through time

While suspended in midnight

Returning to you.

A fleeting moment

Oceans of words unspoken

Too soon you vanish.

Reality comes

And as sure as the morning

Your echo remains.

Til next we meet, there

In that star-concealed escape

Remember me.

Haiku – The Beauty of Her

Flowers on her skin

Melody in her laughter

Moonlight in her eyes

Haiku – Wings

Like petals of fire

Against an African Sky

Kaleidoscopes fly

Haiku – After The Storm

Once she closed the door

Silence thickened around him

Like a numbing fog


You invade my dreams when my guard is down

A betrayal I can never forget 

Your liquor-fueled rage stripping me of sound

My former future. My darling regret.


Come morning, you’ll don the face I once knew

You’ll feign no memory, you’ll feel no shame

Cry over the monster deserting you

You’ll continue a life devoid of blame.

Haiku – Stormy Afternoons

Rain at the window

Feeding imagination

Like words on pages


Haiku – The Fountain

Dreams in the water,

Under cascading whispers,

Traded for pennies.

Connection – Part 2

It was weeks before he made contact again.

It was in a dream she was having. The kind where every trivial detail stands out in a nonsensical way.

She was walking through a house. One she had never, in reality, seen before but in her dream she knew it all too well. It had exquisite navy blue wallpaper with white ceilings and skirtings and every oil painting she passed felt personally picked by her. The sunlight flooded in and cast a golden hue on the wooden floors.

On closer inspection, she realised that the windows had all been broken out of their panes, and the lace curtains were all dancing around in the breeze.

And then, that voice, from somewhere behind her, “Find me”, it said.

She spun around to find that everything in the section of the house behind her had faded to night time. “W-Where are you?” she called.

“Worlds away. Moments apart.”

With that, she woke up with the concrete certainty that she would see him soon.
