Ideodell

Nicola Themistes

 

i.

 

furling rosehips turn

through the fingertips

 

spidermoss & sparrowsong

the nest of a blue wren

 

the pearl would not exist

without the creeping caterpillar

 

ii.

 

i whisper not

to the furling shades,

nor whistle songs

to your ragged gaze –

 

nightshade fruits from every blossom

& no hyacinth left to bud in hindsight

 

Nicola Themistes is the author of Spectacle City: An Allegory. Her works have been published in Cordite, Southerly Journal, and Outcrop: radical Australian poetry of land. She lives in a forest somewhere in Northern NSW. Poetry is life and life is poetry.
