Pisces

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gently holding

anguished fish,

haloed by

coral alveolae.

Undersea,

Underworld.

 

Melanie, FAS Summer School, Oxford, 28.8.2011

 

 

 

 

As I kneel before this gentle giant

I am drowning in the healing waters of his love and compassion,

He nourishes my soul with tender fish and pearls of wisdom
I yearn for the peace and tranquility he promises as he has
'The Whole World in his Hands'.

He promises greater things if I allow myself to let go,
transcend and trust.

Sit still

 

Blue shimmer

Peaceful hold

Translucent

 

Sparkling colours

Moving gently

Salt sea glitter

 

Forever kind

Always loving

Return to mystery

 

Sit still

The Fishes

 

At the very end he was helpless,

 

Staring out at tubes and lights,

 

Held in place by hard science.

 

The nurse brought water to wet his lips,

 

And he moved like a man underwater,

 

Like a baby, new to this world:

 

A pearl in soft oyster sheets,

 

A pink soul grown around grit.

 

Sophie Juneau, 27th December, 3013

 

 

 

 

Dissolve.

No holding tight as currents sway a perfect circle

molecule by molecule  

particles cannot be grasped

waiting patiently

sea how they settle
