Heaven


I'd send you a postcard
but it's too small
for the important things
and I don't know your
forwarding address -
you moved

love,

you never
raised
your voice

but I know
you hurt

inside

invisible
to the eye

I took you
at face value
unacknowledged
secret intact

in truth
I chose not to
recognise
the lie

What secrets lie hidden under the cover of protection?



love, Eaton

it happens in winter



*

A retreat and parry
battle for
supremacy

ruthless
tumultuous

playing out
drama
beyond vision
unsettling the senses

silence
In the stillness
a lull

regrouping
an
onslaught

screaming banshees
wild eyed
terrified

no

it’s just the wind
chasing itself off into
the distance
all noise and huff –


nothing to fear

*

love, Eaton

*


The susurrus of petals
floats down around us
You lean into me and ask,
“What’s susurrus?”
I whisper,
“The sound of petals brushing each
other in the breeze –
touching softly in
communion

*


love,
Eaton
