ion of
giving breath
through vocabulary
and ordering

atoms on atoms into an
an expression on paper that
other eyes may caress tenderly.
Confused mess unravelling be-
fore me, the pen takes over
a mind of its own. Seem-

ing to make sense
there is
none, on-
ly neur-
ons bum-
ping and
baking. My
eyes read

what my
brain con-
ceived through
my hand. Did I,
really, birth that?

This poem is another attempt and playing with the shape of the lines. Whilst I am not the best artist, hopefully, you can see the shape of a pregnant woman through the lines.
The idea is that sometimes a thought or inspiration can go to work in your subconscious and conceive something entirely separate from the stand alone thought. A new creation. It works better on a laptop screen.

Hope you enjoy. Any feedback on poem welcome.

($33) and off we went – into the evening.

This POST is part of a wider collection to show the journey that would eventually lead me to the cross of Jesus Christ, my personal redemption, and my journey of faith afterwards. If you would like to know more of my story, please click on my “About” page and take it from there.

Alternatively, you can visit the Media Links page and see a short visit done by BBC Radio Scotland for an interview I did there.

I have now released an early edition of my story, Completing the Tenner

I have also published two poem books: Simply Jesus  and Five Weeks in May
