Her voice was like feathers.

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)



The sound of her soul
Rained over me whole
Like a shower of feathers
In a field of cloves
If she ended her song
I would sit in her sea
Missing her voice
For all eternity

But I hear it still
Within my mind
Such a gift from God
Of the gentlest kind
As soft as it touched
With each perfect verse
Matching the rhythm
Of my heart
submerged in echoes
that will never part
