Converses With Clouds



A book of poems by John D Robinson

Converses With Clouds is John’s ninth book of poems and will be published by Holy&intoxicated Publications on 28th November 2014. John says “The book is dedicated in memory to the local poet and publisher Josephine Austin who very sadly passed away in April 2014”.  The poem Sunday Morning, remembering Josephine and included in the book, is printed below.

Sunday Morning

We spoke of you and our eyes leaked, we remembered you and we smiled and hugged, our eyes moist and we embraced on a Sunday morning.

We knew words, but they remained quiet, reflective and huddled against the back-drop of more than thirty years of friendship.

We whispered pictures of you and familiar with the love-magic that you wove into every word you wrote,

We recognised the tender silence, the beautiful pause that fell between us on this Sunday morning and we shook hands and knew the world had been changed forever.
