Collaboration with Northern Scapes

With permission here are two poems done in collaboration with artwork from Jessica Owen aka Northern Scapes (

Breaking Light I

The remains of the dark
leave an etched purple and white
turning the water
into a storm close to hatching

Stroking imaginary fingers
in different accents
across a slow rumble
crossing the skies

Kidnapping the air
in anticipation 

Transforming the sunset
into a hollow warning. 

Breaking Light II

Windmills linger
Through the lights
Shaping handprints
In the mist

Sewing answers
To your lips

Plucking mathematics
With each movement

Struggling constantly
To get through the fog

Like a car driving
Through the moors.
