A Poem – Desolation Hill

P.S.Clinen

Haggard eyes of sand – look!
At blackened, brittle trees shook
With gusts of groaning, ravaged fury,
Bursting with the leaves they took.

Like golden stars, they spin and swirl,
Glide on violent gale hurl!
Through grey force, the birds drown
And slide on through maelstrom curl.

The wind chases onward forth
From empty, endless miles North.
Ivy, creep! Cling to ruin,
Strangle dead a long lost worth.

Warmth forgotten, time is still,
Sun shine weak onto the hill.
Dim as a silver coin in the sky,
Yearning for sleep debt to fulfill.

Unearthed Fiction – The Australia Times March 2017

Following on from last month, I have had another short story featured in the March edition of Unearthed Fiction. Hit the link below to have a read of Knock Terns along with several short stories from other Australian writers.

Knock Terns is a relatively recent piece of mine that will one day serve as an opening chapter for a novel; we’re a long way off seeing completion for that one though!

Thanks again to The Australia Times for featuring my story.
