To Love  (From the Dragonish Collection)

Your nine is my seven, my seven your nine.
You are yin and I am yang, two tadpoles
commingled; two shining planets aligned.
Surely two halves can make a perfect whole?

The sand slips from one glass chamber
into the other enriching, feeding.
I swell, you wane; I descend, you clamber -
transferring strength; power conceding.

Tangible duality is restless.
We each contain the germ, the others' seeds
rendered into sweet-scented Vignette.

The hour glass is spiralling and endless -
moonless surge sweeps in, sunless wave recedes
we will come together love, just not yet.


I'm a teacher-librarian (if you know what that is, lol) working in a small country town in Gippsland, Australia. I love to read (naturally) and write (of course), drink red wine (a little too much, occasionally) and travel whenever and wherever I can. I've had quite a bit of publishing success with my poetry but I've been rather too precious (to date) where my short stories and novels are concerned sooooo... I decided to join Wattpad and begin bravely exposing my soul. It's going to be difficult to let go at times but I'm determined and with a little encouragement, I might just actually get somewhere. If not, well at least my work may interest someone, somewhere, somehow.
