Stay in touch

One thing you can't hide - is when you're crippled inside. ― John Lennon Remember how we always say this to people who are leaving, moving away, getting a farewell, changing jobs etc. We ask them not to be a stranger and to stay in touch with us. I have always wondered why shouldn't we do the same … Continue reading Stay in touch

Pedigree

Megha's World

Philosophy does not regard pedigree, she received Plato not as a noble, but she made him one.
–Seneca the Younger

We are descended from the divine

born with that ambrosial touch

floating on the angelic wings and the 

defined with that seraphic glow

as we descend to this earth

rolling in muck and dirt

smeared and stained by the

seven deadly sins

we wished 

to steer clear

all those doubts and reassurance 

are falling on the deaf ears and 

muted soul

a  squelched soul trying to be free;

We are blind spectators 

to the human atrocities

and lay our souls bare to 

the lingering ghouls

they say ‘A fruits never falls 

far from the tree”

and we fervently

risk our whole life

proving our 

shimmering pedigree.

Excerpt from Composition of a Woman: Raven – Christine Ray

Come read this powerful piece from Christine at Sudden Denouement

Sudden Denouement Collective

It starts as tightness
tingling
across bare shoulder blades
becomes an itch
I can’t quite reach
stretch my spine sinuous
slow
vertebrae by vertebrae
long for a shot of whiskey
or three
liquid gold disinhibition I can blame
for the reckless choice
I am about to make
I finally let go
tightly coiled control
gasp with relief
as I finally unleash the darkness
onyx feathers rip
sharp and true through the flesh of my back
talons shoot from fingertips
toes
bones burned hollow
by demon fire dwelling in my belly
exquisite pain of rebirth
brings me briefly to my knees
I arise something new
wipe the blood from my mouth
spread fledgling wings
and with the lift of the north wind
I claim the night sky
mine

Composition of a Woman will be released by Sudden Denouement Publishing on Tuesday, July 31st.  It will be available on Amazon.com, Amazon Canada…
