A is for arraisonnement

seek the stone that has birthed of itself

that which is hollow of centre,

tread into the world beyond the void

pierced with bough,

sleep a dead man’s sleep

and in the morn’s dew wash away the sin,

one day merges the years

a lost eternity,

be wary

the fruit is not always bounty

but oft times

the lock on the door

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. This is a new word to me, and always up to learn something new, I couldn’t even find it in my dictionaries, however I noticed Laura defined it as a nautical term. The picture of the girl and the poem complement each other. Lovely.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
