Relics of the tower
Crumbling down
To smithereens
Upon a fallen architects 

Skeleton structures
Impaling the land
As bats weave in and out
Of the ruins

The moon shines a spotlight 
Out onto the ocean 
Wind farms flash red in the dark

The silhouettes of the towers
Engulfed slowly by the mist
The Reculver disappearing
Like a memory
As landscapes begin to shift


Atoms bounce

Like particles of memories

Melting away

Faces like neon stripes

Cars hurtling in motion

Through the night

Apples falling off trees

Newton’s law will ground us all

From spiralling up in our minds

Free of gravity and of time

There is a universe

Inside our minds

Where all our thoughts

Pass by like comets

Can coexist and collide

Poem dedicated to Thomas Van Hulle


Racing through my dreams
Silverene glistening from their seams
Solar panelled horns lock into the sky
The Kelpies rising high
Water raining down their scales
Raising bodies out of the loch
Then crashing back in
Horses that can gallop and can swim
Volcanic fires flicker from eyes
Red ambers burning inside
Charging forward with beams of light
As sun melts into night.


Dream catchers blow in the wind

Rainbow ribbons trailing like tentacles

Wrapping around our thoughts

Cracks appear

In the colourful mosaic of the sky

Sucking me up

As the carpet of earth

Is pulled from under my feet

Locusts swarm in the heat

Against a blood red sun

Memories melting like ice

On a Cuban beach.


Shadow across the sky

Illuminates the third eye

Snakes, mechanical crawl

Across the volcanic planet

Mercury droplets of rain

Fall from the heavens

As the skulls of humanity

Regrow with flowers

Regenerating the scars of time.

Hands of October

Summer breeze melts away

To reveal the autumn freeze

Faces anticipate

Down the glass corridor

Sliding away

Towards the light

Breaking the bulbs

Their butterfly brains

Flutter away

Into a sea of leaves

Colourful and stained

Worries buried underneath

Their glacial gaze.

Invisible Enemy

Spinster sparrow

Swings around the tree

Tall and spindly

Swaying on a spring breeze

Eyes flicker like rivers

Sparkling in the sun

Patients shiver

As nature’s work

Comes undone


Blue glow engulfs the room

As spirits leave their shells far too soon


Police patrol with a glare

As the invisible enemy dances around us

Freely in the air.

The Painter


Under the mirrored hall

Champagne sparkles like rain

Wolves eyes entice

Melting the sheep’s hearts like ice


Staring out to the city

Smoke escapes the painter’s mouth

Snow falls like confetti

From the skyscrapers above


Colourful darts explode onto his canvas

Slashing away memories

With the knife of his paint brush


Tearing out of his painting

The bird breaks away

Flying above monochrome skies and icy lakes

To shine in it’s truth

For the rest of it’s days.



Painting by Robert Ioan. Poem by Jeremy Warder 2019.

Car Crash Moon


Blue blistered moon

Dissolves upon the fall

Of car crashed souls


Smoke rises from out of the woods

Headlights blinding like the sun

Angels fly down the freeway

At a hundred miles per hour

Darting through the night


Infiltrating the minds of sleepers

Behind the wheel

Steering drivers to the nearest exit

From deaths claws.






Octopus scrambles on top of the rocks

Under the icicles of the moon

Ink clouds the sky

As oceans run dry

Volcanic eyes

Lurking in the dark

Piercing it’s tentacles

Like a harpoon through the heart
