The Girls

Below them,
the dark streets beckoned
with crimson
light. Then he
asked her price and the slap bounced
off tired brick walls.

‘Just because
I work here, doesn’t
mean I work
the corners,’
she replied. ‘Someone has to
look after the girls.’

Poetry by Sarah, Shadorma

Yield


Confusion.
Saturated mind
unable
to sort through;
prioritise challenges.
Moonstruck by my fears.

Day by day,
with ragtag mounting,
I feel I
am drowning.
The sun is shimmering still
– but in me, no more.

Do I sail
raging seas, or yield?
A conflict –
Desperate
wanderlust away from self?
Or stay. Fight the fight?

Poetry by Sarah, Shadorma

Grateful

Oh what bliss!
A lakeside escape.
Girls’ weekend –
sharing love,
laughter and fun! I’m grateful
for these friends of mine.

Whispers in the Willow Trees

its bough bends

with outstretched fingers 

to trail through 

the water 

and whisper to fish below 

‘carry me with you’
