syn(a)esthesia ... my friendly companion
i am wary...
i have not been so permeable in a time
and the wild is as lovely as I remember it

i ride the tides of moon and ocean
no need of a mouth
the words are everywhere

i am waterbug
i am smoke
i am a shy girl in a strange plaid coat
that used to be a blanket


  1. this little piece is a return to a project I was involved in year or so ago.... maybe a bit longer....
    no matter; I am still taken by it :)) (beckettadaptation.blogspot.com)

  2. Great example of the concept, I wish I could get a personal insight of it someday, sadly I could never relate personally to that, but I admire what others experiences can become.

  3. There is positively some thing being brought forward but I have no words for the sensation of that thing.

  4. Great work. Last line is prefect.

  5. Gerry... prefect works, too :))
    thanks for the comment; much appreciated from a wordsmith like yerself
    WM-- your comment sounds like you might be experiencing a bit of synaesthesia ... nice touch; aren't you subtle :)
    Mariana-- thanks for the kind words.

    hoping to be a bit more attentive to you all quite soon..... my logjam ( previous blog comment) is loosening....

  6. This is astoundingly good. I agree with Madame DeFarge. The last verse ties it up perfectly and gives it a resonating ending. I read this more than once. Well done.
