Favorite Quote:
Nowhere's now here smelling of junipers.

It was a summer spell sweet and fine
and I tried.
Hazy rainbows of caramel
seared, crooning lullabies
of one fagged pebble
flailing in the silvery seas.
Link not your hand in mine?
I sighed

accursed be He
who, meagre with His clay,
left an eve of sorrow in His wake.
For she, a fiery soul
scorched in forbidden take,
loves dearly, ice to summer melt. You call,
emboldening our friend to the silver, and me
shivering in sea-cold spray.

The author's comments:
'See Me' is a personal piece (or so I believe) on my wish of being appreciated by a certain someone.

This is my first attempt at poetry (with the rhyming scheme and all without the metrical intricacies (will, who knows, may appear some day).

Do enjoy and be baffled. Please comment on what you think I am trying to convey because admittedly I am not absolutely certain either.

Inspired by Australian poet Gwen Harwood.
