ANOTHER TIME by Vicki Naylor

Last night I saw him again

He seeps up from the floorboards

Wavy, smoky

Beautiful long white locks he has

A musty smell of smoke-filled peppers

Adorns his aura

He draws me to him, he commands

I have to check he’s there

His coal-black eyes call me

Smiling but passionately sure

The room has ch’i – no fear or doom

Just fervour fire and frenzy
