The Most Beautiful ThingApril 24, 2012
References for Happy No. 1
You have replaced my jade amulet
with your dark eyes and open arms.
You smell of primeval forests
but are made of flesh, not wood.
And though no-one else can see them
I feel wings under your football top.
Spread your crow-feathers wider
and carry me away.
I rarely post poems on this blog, but today I’m taking part in the blogsplash to celebrate Fiona Robyn’s new novel, The Most Beautiful Thing. Bloggers from all over the world are taking part and writing or posting pictures of their most beautiful things today. Find out more here and see everyone else’s blog posts here.
Today and tomorrow you can download The Most Beautiful Thing FREE in celebration of the event – more on Fiona’s blog (N.B. as I am posting at 06:30 it is still showing on Amazon UK as costing £3.99. Fiona says (on the blogsplash facebook page) “The book WILL be free on Kindle as soon as Amazon realises it’s Tuesday : )” ).
