Everything I know of what I want to say

Posted by Simon Parke, 11 January 2016, 5.46am

My poem of the week - huge honour -  is a new work by the contemporary poet Anthony Wilson.

His most recent collection of poems is ‘Riddance’ published by Worple Press.

And his excellent ‘Lifesaving Poems’ blog is also now published by Bloodaxe.

But for now, sit back and the beautiful treasure of images called…


Everything I Know of What I Want to Say


Talking with you I dream into being all I hold precious of words I discover
through your finding them in my saying.

When I am with you there is nowhere on earth I flow better or am more myself
breathing now with every cell I own.

I see steel in you but also the fragility of the snowflake transforming
the world around it with others similarly tenacious.

Take it into your heart that I believe in you fully and taste amazing possibility
in the riot of your laughter.

You are enough and are enough and will be enough.
I place you in the light and find you coming into being, the world fresh on your shoulders.

You stun me with your hope. It glows in the ache of your greeting, your morning eyes
thick with sleep and shining.
