GUEST POST // spring by John Flanagan

break a leg young thing
this is your moment
after all those morgue afternoons
rehearsing old school mystiques
fine tuning your pauses
making each phrase count

your entrance upstage
deliberate slight in silhouette
moving into light and out
making us sit up

a stir
a single shoot
peep of crocus
hiatus
second delivery
you hold our breath in yours

delay the extended arm
purple patch declamation
flourishes of yellow madness
in winterspent fields

in the morning we’ll blog and tweet
your budding craft
your youth

  1. John Flanagan is an exquisite find. His Spring has sprung to the very essence of wanting. And the waiting becomes the worthwhile adventure that spring is…”you hold our breath in yours”. Unbelievable line and imagery.
    Awesome. Thank you.
