Griefs Garden

That night, the skies emptied a weeks’ worth of rain stored in swollen clouds, and it streamed keenly, battering and pelting everything with a surface. The young woman wriggled and tossed in the bed. She couldn't sleep. Instead, her eyes strained to discern the hundreds of droplets splattering unceremoniously on her glass of her bedroom... Continue Reading →

Distant Love

Wistful dreams of melting hugs, felt acutely as an ache in the minds eye. So fused are we in this experience most profound, we conjure visions in which we're unified.   Yesteryear fragments replayed like a song, erupting in starlight, ablaze in the soul. So fruitful are we in our wondrous desires, we conjure the... Continue Reading →

The Enigma

Fluffy clouds suspended, in a gradient blue sky Spied from behind windows, as most do not defy The decree as clear as day, so we wait for news and crumbs Secluded under roofs, in fears we might succumb.   Mystery binds us tight, straight answers not yet heard Black boxes in our homes, offer carefully...

Strange Heart!

O strange and foolish heart! Why do you continue to love when the other is long gone? You've chained your quartet of chambers up into tiny cells. Bereft, your grief dwells.   Such a strange and stubborn heart! Without truly knowing the Love that exists outside of him You've made such a final choice. Acute... Continue Reading →

2 Haikus: Brighton beach

Hey beautiful people ❤ I just had a lovely time in English seaside town Brighton. I took my little notepad along and wrote quite a bit, which was very soothing. I could taste  the salty sea on my lips and my hair was dancing wildly (it was very windy!) and I just took out my... Continue Reading →

The Wound

One day she woke up and realized she wasn't hurting as much as before. The wound was still there, but the pain duller, more of an ache that intensified at certain times. Like first thing in the morning. She would open her eyes, and the wound was there, dismantling her peace,  trying it's best to... Continue Reading →

Haunted

  I knew I'd felt it again between my ribs, above my breasts. That familiar pang of grief I felt whenever I remembered. I continued to search inwards, devouring hope, eye on the clock. Was yet another mistake made? Or would this be the final death knell?   I stared stupidly at the chasm left... Continue Reading →

2 Haikus: Fox

Good evening/morning wherever you are in the world ❤ I spent much of this evening reading and analyzing another of Ted Hughes unique animal poems. The one I've been looking at is called The Thought-Fox and blends the idea of poetic inspiration and the vivid description of the animal incredibly well.  The atmosphere of the poem, which is...

2 Haikus: Winters End

Hey everyone ❤ As we inch closer into Spring I thought some weather-related Haikus would be fitting.     March showers tarry Hampering wandering souls Who cling to Springs dreams.     Sodden and wilted Dahlias and hyacinths Anticipate Spring.   Photo by Tolga Kilinc on Unsplash   © 2017-2020 Candy Lebby All Rights Reserved

2 Haikus: Crow

Hey beautiful people! ❤ I've recently been engrossed in the literary work of English poet Ted Hughes. He wrote a collection of poems called Crow: From The Life and Songs of the Crow, and this inspired the Haikus written below.   Crows caw, piercing shriek Flocks of black darken the sky Congregation roosts   Foraging...
