Poetry – Matilda the Tortoise – A Poem by Goff James

The image shows a spray of red berries on a black background on which is written a poem titled Matilda the Tortoise by the poet Goff James. The poem reads;
Matilda the tortoise,
Reptilian of great resource,
Renowned escapee.
O’er the garden path she creeps
Neath the broken picket fence
Wearing courage’s crown.
Living on her wits she strays
Seeking freedom’s ways.

How the Night Turns into Day by Goff James

How the night turns into day
How fair morning golden wakes

How the sun sails o’er the sky
How the bees sip the flowers
How joy’s birdsong fills the breeze
How the ocean ebbs and flows

How the fishes swim and shoal
How sweet Spring turns into Summer
How the flowers glorious blossom
How flamed sunset sleep-eyed fades

How dusk’s fragrance melts into darkness
How the barn owl silent hovers
How the moonlight dancing gleams
How the stars bright jewelled sparkle

How heartache’s barbed pain wounds
How love’s silk threads woven heal
How life’s journey sweeping wanders
How chilled winter autumn’s harvest gleans

How the greenwood leafless withers
How the night turns into day

Tearing Oneself Apart by Goff James

Tearing oneself apart
Dismantled

Emotions burn
Time’s destruction
Furnaced memories erupt
The taste of fire

Flames ignite
Fabled phoenix awakes
Hidden fears overcome
Reassembled

Winged resurrection

Unable to Hear by Goff James

Unable to hear
Locked
Within
A sightless world
Voiceless
He lies

The pain of
Loneliness drums
Memories
Flickering dance

Love’s touch
Reassuring

Lights
The
Dark

And
How

Spotlight Poetry – a s i – A Poem by Goff James

The image depicts a painting titled Jeu de Miroir (Mirror Effects) by the artist Philippe Briade. The work is a vibrant atmospheric semi-abstract figurative painting. Layers of colour, shapes and texture and a variety of mark making provide depth, movement and give the painting its dramatic intensity. The viewer is placed in a central position where one can see everything happening in the room in front of them and also in the back by the mirror effects. What is exactly going on is subject to interpretation. But one can distinguish on the left a woman looking outside on a balcony or on the deck of a boat. Central left are two children playing with the curtains. Central right a mirror reflecting a woman in lingerie. And on the right side a ghostly silhouette of a man standing. The unity of color, a warm grey, give the scene a continuity through the 4 stages as well as the white horizontal line behind the woman and the ghost. But the mirrors make the scene surreal. So that one doesn't know where one stands and what one is really seeing. The work supports the poem a-s-i written by the poet Goff James.
