TITLE (EDIT)
A Bright Blue Cloudless Sky
DESCRIPTION
A cheery work about emotional displacement, I suppose is one way of putting it. But whatever you think.

AUTHOR
Peter Rivendell
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Who me? Born in 1962. Wrote prolifically as a teenager, heavily influenced by books & the music of the time. Stopped writing for 20 years more or less. But started again...
Some of the work here dates from the "early period" - 1979-1982. The rest is since 2000.
I`ve no idea whether I`m a better writer now or then. Maybe I was never any good! I`ve always wondered.
Feedback most welcome...

I've not visited this site at all since January 2006 as I shortly after discovered the unfettred joys of blogging. I'm still writing and actually had a very good summer of writing. I'm posting a recent poem here now but all my recent work is available on my blog - take a look - http://peter-rivendell-poems.blogspot.com/

A Bright Blue Cloudless Sky
Peter Rivendell

Encircled by my memories,
Fear of darkness suffocates me,
But taunted by the brightness equally,
Dark imagined birds swoop the sky above me.

Wondering how I came to find myself in this place,
All that was familiar now strange or erased,
Like a face following surgery or an act of violence.
The sensation of falling or a savage movement of air,
Deafening voices chanting things I believed in once,
Now deafening in their silence.
Whistling canyons of endlessly shifting sand,
An eternity of waiting without peace or confidence.

Holding my heart in the palms of my own hands,
A whisper all it takes to stillness forever.
Excluded from the dancing,
Weighed down by a kind of clumsiness,
No talent for life or laughter,
Mistaking hope for hopelessness.

Painting by numbers without numbers or paints,
Unable to distinguish lines from the shapes;
Hieroglyphs I used to know but have lost or misplaced.
No age-faded maps to guide me from this place,
Even wise ancient stones can no longer be traced,
Only the barren majesty of this wilderness imbues a sense of grace.

Water to drink but my throat cracked and bleeding.
Sand dragged feet stumble wildly through a lunar landscape.
A bird of prey in a bright blue cloudless sky,
Circles patiently.
