Here you will find the writings of the poet Theodore Waterfield

No Time for Dying

I am entangled in entanglements.
Destruction and beauty
in the teaching and reaching
of branches.
Incoherent love songs.
Interrupted sleep.
Where is the simplicity
that comes with age?
The soul drowning in dreams?

I need lifetimes to live.
To be where they are building houses.
Where cataclysms and festivals
are coming.
I have fallen in love.
I see destinies whose loveliness
is deeper than the universe.
With whom I want to remain,
and deny mortality a stone
where only shadows would come
to visit me.
