Fossil Fish Dreaming

The latest edition of online poetry journal Creatrix is out.

I have these two poems in it:

 

Fossil Fish Dreaming

 

The rain wets the outcrops

darker grey and fills the gullies

with silty water rushing past

where fossil fish lie dreaming

deep in the rocks of being

finned and loosed again in

waters older than the land.

 

Julian O’Dea

 

 

The Young Orchard

 

The wind blows hard through

the young orchard of his life;

he sets his face against it

and wrinkles begin to wither

the smoothness of the face

we gave him, etching lines

he will take through life, long

after we are gone.

 

Julian O’Dea

    Witch wimmen have strewn salt
    Between the sons and daughters
    of the one Mother
    And in that sere
    Arise banes and doom
