Monthly poem - January 2020

WHEN YOU HAVE FOUND THE PLACE

When you have found the place
Where soft flowers
Suck in their colour
And a girl with apple knees
Caresses the smile in her arm
Tell me
And I’ll find it.

When you have found the time
When the house is empty
The morning does not move
And the curtains bleed white light
Tell me
And I’ll find it.

When you have found the place
Where bumble bees
Stagger from the throats of flowers
And a man waits
Burning the grass he whistles through
With his eyes
Tell me

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
her poems glow like impressionist paintings.

Love wells up out of Jehane Markham's work... it made me cry.
