Coronets For Ghosts

from a restful source

to rushing rapids,

migrating salmon

-Osprey fodder,

snatched on silent

Atlantic missions,

slivers of light

transfiguring elements:

water to sky;

life to death

Night Poem

from my poetry blog

Coronets For Ghosts

the loneliness of distraction

a question of language

the cravatted pirate hijacking the turntable

wait up to see the shooting stars

tearing holes in the firmament

of crystal glass

name a rose after that velvet queen

lost in the garden

painting portraits and hustling

the elite for a pound

speak the names of those gone before

unfinished manifestos staked

to scarlet trees

A ‘Shoutout’ For In Brigantia

I have the honour of appearing on musician Laura Bruno Lilly’s site this week for the publication of my poetry collection In Brigantia.

In Brigantia Out Now

 

I’m very pleased to announce that my second poetry collection, In Brigantia, is out now.

‘Andrew James Murray’s second collection invites you to Brigantia, territory of Celtic tribe the Brigantes.

It is a Brigantia of both geography and imagination, where Queen Cartimandua rubs shoulders with screen goddess Marilyn Monroe, and Tom Cruise is proselytising upon the streets of Manchester.’

For readers in the UK it is available here:
