Literature
you sit-
you sit on rotting wood with your back to the sun
and you can smell the smells of summer
in that little corner world
the smell of flowers and chlorine and cigarettes
the dryness of that morning
and it will kill you
God, you know that it will kill you
but you breathe it in deep
because a life of shallow breaths is no life
at all
and a life ignoring the things that bind us home
is a little empty
even if in the end they kill us
and surely a death surrounded by the smells of home
is no true death at all

Literature
unfilled I will remain
unfilled I will remain
empty
a vessel waiting to hold
I am an eager glass
held up against the world
ever empty
and yet full of light

Literature
You know all the names of the mountains-
You know all the names of the mountains,
Your footprints are soft in the sand,
Your hair, it is cool like the ocean,
Your lips, they were warm on my hand.
You so gently ignited a small fire,
Your arms gathered twigs on the dunes,
Your face, it was turned to the sea-breeze,
My face, it was turned to the moon. 
You sing all the words to an old song,
Your voice rises strong in the sky,
My arms, they wish they could hold you,
As those twigs held the moon, given time.

Literature
I lay down-
I lay down in the grass
and slowly realized
just how close the ground is
to the sky.

Literature
I am the ship-
I am the ship and you are the keep. 
I am the waves and you are the shore. 
I am the sea and you are the sand. 
I am the water and you are the stones. 
Let me come home, let me wash over you.
Let me pull at you, drag you under. 
Let me come in, let me come home. 
Let me taste land again.

Literature
There was a time-
There was a time in my life,
when I was afraid-
and you were there, 
arms open, 
embracing.
There was a time in my life,
when I was silent-
and yet full,
of desperate words teeming to be said-
and you were there,
quiet, waiting, listening.
There was a time in my life,
when I didn't know myself-
and you were there to hold me,
to tell me that no one truly knows themselves,
that you yourself had been lost,
son without a father,
stranger in your homeland,
outcast.
There was a time in my life
when I wished I had your courage-
and you were there,
not to lend me yours-
but to help me 
find my own.

Winter
Oh, come freeze me, winter winds,
and never let the spring thaw touch my bones.

Literature
I sometimes think-
I sometimes think
when I am with you
(my soft winter forest)
that you feel just as helpless
as I do
when confronted with this breaking, burning world
I come to you for respite
(my soft snow winter friend)
and you so gently offer me
a place to lay myself
down
and then you say
(your ice glistening and your rocks made soft)
that you swept yourself to my doorstep looking for the same
(some solace from this grinding end)
I wish I could
gather you up in my arms
protect you
but I feel sometimes
like the last snowfall of the last winter
melting before I ever touch the ground

Autumn. Leaves fall from
branches like ink from my pen.

This is rather an eclectic account.
Watch for writing, knitting, and the occasional chocolate biscuit.

So word on the street is that JRR Tolkien's translation of Beowulf in going to be published in MAY. Anyone else very excited?? Tolkien borrowed so much from Beowulf in his writing that it'll be really interesting to see how he translates it directly. I'm also very interested to see how he handles Grendel's mother.... :P
