Shiver

"Shiver" - poetry by Roshan James, Wellesley, Ontario, Canada

Text: A nomadic chill trails Behind spring’s veiled breath Like ice-tipped quills brushing Over the geography of my curving cheeks And a fleeting shiver Is our quiet wish For warmer days

Sleep-thick

"Sleep-thick" poetry by Roshan James, Wellesley, Ontario, Canada

Text: Snow-soft, slow exhale Breathes warm at winter’s edges Sleep-thick in old growth

Return from stone

"Return from stone" poetry by Roshan James, Kitchener Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

Text: When you’re swallowed up, fighting for air When loneliness echoes off the walls Even when warmth starts to find your bones And your eyes, your eyes, they return from stone Breathe into the relief, trace the carvings left behind And remember It’s all part of the story
