NATIONAL POETRY DAY: ‘FROM THE GROUND UP’…
In honour of National Poetry Day on Thursday 3rd October, I was inspired to write ‘From The Ground Up’ as my response to the wonderful collision of SS14 collections which flooded the Fashion Week Season! Enjoy!
‘From the ground up, heels consider terrain,
pray to tack themselves with metronomic ease,
as liquid -metal oozes through the throat of uplit night.
Levers arc themselves into their vanishing points,
sometimes straining, clutching dignity.
Everso insistently, they turn and point and pause.
With poise the heaving decadence of polish steels the quakes,
relinquishing the mantle to the modern prose of angles,
ragged in its promise, doused in breathless, gaping wonder.
Hoisted gestures joust with grandeur,
wander, rogueishly, towards the brink of either wing.
Balance in the battle of the woven majesty.
Prise the dividend of faith from mental sketches.
Present moments, hope for memories.
As the void returns, the vacuum fills new seasons with beginnings.’
