This is not Love

Thursday, February 14th, 2019

What we have, this burning of spirits and need for each other, this wonderous thing is not love. Love the insipid, love the overly kind and love the blinder. We are not bound by each other. No what this is is something more than that and never – less – but it is not all […]


Saturday, October 13th, 2018

The pale spectra of a woman clad in dark red velvet with dark hair slightly disarrayed was curled infront of the old manor house as it began to be comsumed by flames. The rudy light of flames not yet visible seemed to enrich her full skirt, she trembled and shock with sobs she did not […]

The Book Club

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

We all recieved the same letter, none of us had met previously but we all got the exact same letter inviting us to The Book Club, we were all lonely and isolated in different ways but the result was similar – we all jumped at the chance of something gentle that wasn’t a pub or […]

The Sea Cities

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

The cities gleamed in the luminous depth of the oceans, great domes with smaller domes within, bobbing above great tubes of filtration plants and hydroponic gardens – all emitting their own ghostly light down in dark waters. Modelled on jellyfish the outer domes were flexible, and could help propel the cities out of danger. Three […]

The Universe Incarnate

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

I dreamed that the world had managed a kind of immortality and two people lived the life span of the universe but though this seemed fantastic it wasn’t as it meant the whole universe could not move on to it’s next cycle – the problem? Cyclic-evolutionary rebirth – those two people were stuck in their […]

It’s All Wrong

Thursday, September 14th, 2017

They re-built the world with the fragments that they found but they did not know how the world was supposed to go. The things that had been were not anymore but they kind of remembered what they should be and so they moulded and squeezed themselves into forms that mimicked what was but were in […]

Tower Cross

Thursday, March 9th, 2017

The bridge was fragmented arches Three of them, crossing the river With grey stone feet Growing slimy from the water The spill and stuck around them Remnants of a tower still rose On one side, but not it’s twin Nothing but decay Little windows stared blank eyed At clouds shattered by row boats Wakes People […]

The Homeless Moon

Monday, March 6th, 2017

The street loomed in the silver light Or rather it lurched as it luminesced Moon beams reflected a muted rainbow Just at the edge of perception A reflexion of it’s own subtle glory Hung distorted in the river’s ripples A lonely figure wrapped in trench coat With broken seams jerked like a lost puppet Caught […]

The Tinsel Dragon Cat and Mary Elf

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

The Tinsel Dragon Cat was lonely and felt quiet rightly that it did not have enough tinsel so it called to the Mary Elf, a little rainbow of a thing that hopes here and there and everywhere and never EVER stops talking. The Mary Elf attended the great Tinsel Dragon who was once again in […]

The Blank Doll

Friday, July 15th, 2016

This one is a little odd because it is actually just a memory thingy I wrote on my family/personal blog. So I’ll give you some context the mookie is like a raggy doll, I made one for my youngest out of socks. It is something made by you or for you or belongs in some […]
