Poems and artwork: Dream, Thought, Water

By Abel McLennan:


Sometimes in our dreams we are somebody else

But it doesn’t matter

They still counts as memories

Often introducing sweet savour not found in reality




Have you ever seen a wild thing sorry for itself?

No social quota to fulfil

She wanders around freely

Exploring the world and her mind

Fear, is not present here




If I were an animal

The ocean would be my home

The blue depths I would roam,

Taking shape against refractions seeping in from above

Seldom singing out to the ones I love

They’re paths in the distance, sometimes parallel to mine

The deeper I go, the colder it gets

I’ve seen the bottom, it is dark,

But when I emerge

The view across the divide makes its worth

I hold on
