LOST FRIENDSHIP:

The leaf
free from the tree
falls

The lifeblood remains,
nothing to support

Sustenance lost
its colour drains.
Once luscious in its
ripe greenness,
now shrivelled into nothing.

The miniscule embers
separated
dissipate in the wind.
   
Laura Attwood Nov 1996



HOME:

Pregnant emotion
wholesome desire
an unfulfilled longing,
emptying from inexplicable depths.

Obscure meaning
cast-iron ties,
seemingly temporarily cast off;
yet ever permanent


Laura Oct 1996


LONDON:

Vibrant colours dot the fathomless grey backdrop
Scarlet buses trickle the green landscape
Perpetual movement scars the regularity of the palette,
becoming part of that very regularity.

Scores of ants always moving,
mysterious places to go,
sense of purpose uppermost.

No time to deviate.
There’s only one mode
all people in this city follow it.

Deep into the depths
where the ants live.
Their mobile homes are impersonal,
enforced and intrusive.

Gratefully leaving the pit,
the ants frantically burrow out
once again beginning the purposeful
journey ...... to where?

   Laura Attwood 1996


TOBY

My wings felt heavy
I battled against the smothering snow
which threatened my flight.
All encompassing heavens beckoned

Struggling to take off, faltering ... I failed
Buckled, snow swamped ...trapped

Exhausted, frustrated - all hope lost
Resigned acceptance

This was not my fate ...

Pin-prick appearance
unfurling gradually
into the blinding brilliance

Trickling off my wings, caressing,
stroking me to rejuvenation
all weight extinguished by the light.

Feeling free to soar
I now feel infinite liberation.
Previous freedom engulfed by a swelling, fathomless
understanding of true freedom

I can never return to the snow swamped wilderness that was
Now is my time to soar to boundless heights
growing lighter still,
ever journeying closer to the source of my release,
the saviour of my freedom...
