THE SEAGULL(IN MEMORY OF MY BROTHER NICK)

Fire meets ice on the road to Christmas.
Seagull hovers above the scene on newborn wings.
Tears meet snow on Christmas day.
Seagull circles my head , like some uncertain halo.
Your distillation in his cry.

  1. I truly adore your poetry. I wonder have you ever read Sarah Kane? I have been researching her, and she is a break through play write. Sometimes what I read here reminds me of some of her ideas. Based on your biography I believe you may enjoy some of her work. Its awesome.

    1. I was devastated to read this. Nick was the most wonderful, encouraging tutor. I was looking up his email to tell him I am now published on Kindle and couldn't find it, so looked him up and found this. You had an amazing and very special brother, we in his classes, all loved.

    Hello! you're looking lovely, in a mysterious sort of way. Why is Seagull in memory of Nicky? Did he die?

    Sorry about the lack of subtlety.

    Best wishes

    1. Nick was my tutor at Oxford and the kindest, most wonderful man. He encouraged me, and gave me the courage, to keep on writing. I just published on Kindle and was looking for his email in his notes to me to tell him. I am devastated to find this very, very, special man gone.
