‘Sunny Notes’ By Ellen Chia

*
The Sun alights
On the spider’s threads,
My ears privy to the
Soft twangs she makes
As she glides her
Gilded fingers briskly
Across the threads.

*
Sunbeams dripping on
Swift-winged,
Steely-blue black suits
Of acrobats that
Flash wink-wink
Across the blue-domed tent.

*
A billowing curtain and
Aureate rays filtering its
Cottony skin now
Find themselves stranded
As a blond fish,
Writhing haplessly against
A bank of books.


Ellen lives in Thailand. Whilst pondering over the wonders and workings of her tiny universe, she finds herself succumbing time after time to the act of poetry making. Her work has been published in The Ekphrastic Review, The Honest Ulsterman, Neologism Poetry Journal, Zingara Poetry Review, The Tiger Moth Review and Chiron Review.
