Just expressions of feelings about people who we might have never known or met, but feel we do because of a connection or illusion that could have been truthful, just for thinking we share something in spite of living on the other side.

From the ceiling


Conjure a sunrise from the ceiling

to illuminate my mind.


Cast a spell

on a starred sky

or a soothing rainstorm

enlightening your life.


Never come face to face

suppose it ought to be enough,

at least, sharing the same space.


Run with the horses, run

second walk of the night

might you become a star

the greatest honor

you are.


Never come face to face

but might have shared the same sunny days.


A flash of blues

slips from a cloud

and even peaking towards the sun

highlights a bit of green million skies.


Never knew about you until sometime

and feel like wanting to share

the same land and sky.


A smile from the West

the Irish Sea

and a fair bit of

your devil’s magic

makes a melancholy feel

when knowing the same moon

and even the same sun

for thirteen years

we’ve shared at the same time.

Thanks a million really. Coming from a writer that helped me be inspired by her stories and a Rory Gallagher fan also, it really lifts my spirits. Thank you again.
