Two Poems By Jenny Dunbar

You and Me
  
Some one said the stardust fell unwittingly from heaven
unstrung, 
so fine in its spontaneity, mercurial in its traits
full of the alchemy the open seas and suns 
it bathed among had gifted, 
then gave to earth,
stranded in the gaps, far out and stilled 
its flow stemmed, 
its flux caught ‘til time’s season let it go
and earth bartered, stole,
off set the diamond, dulled its light
catching tears  
Who we were
  
Her words in the ocean’s pulse on a fine day
feet on soft sand,
smiles
I feel the sense of a place, where she becomes and is
the beginning
before
all this
unmade
