Silver-studded blue poetry reading
This is a reading of my new poem "Silver-studded blue" - I hope you enjoy it!
The photo of the silver-studded blue in the video's thumbnail is my own, and a plain text version of the poem can be read below:
Silver studded blue
I speak in riddles and rhymes, when
The ‘s’s and ‘c’s get stuck in my throat.
I try to make sense of my swirling thoughts;
But memories are living, they flutter away,
Like an untamed butterfly, floating
On an unseen breeze. The soft calm of my hopes,
My dreams, my wishes, sails my words away
Like a glowing blue beacon.
The happiest thoughts glint silver and perfect,
Like the wings of a freshly emerged silver studded blue.
