Lean-to Lives

written by Hannah

Twice over the Alps before ever I was born, my name is Hannah but when online I tend to go by Lunaed, or Eluned Francis. I like to live in the past or in other peoples' present. I live to travel and love to see the world from the perspective of others. I chew slowly, and absorb the world in much the same way: savouring it.

I am the first person to admit my so-called poetry is sub-par, but if I don’t air it here, it will remain in some jotter or other and never see the light of day again.

Life is a series of improbable balances, struck.
Strike, counter point and contrasting.
A cacophony of awkward silences, moments in transit;
We erect monuments to our memories,
Anticipating an arrival at some final conclusion.
And throw our futures to the four winds,
Bemoaning the instability of our lean-to lives.
Hannah Eluned Francis
A little something...
