Last Weekend for WILD LINES!

This is the last weekend to see WILD LINES swinging and swaying on the trees of Dunedin.  Below is one rendering of the 26 lines from 26 poets of WILDS LINES into one single poem, as organized by Loveday.  Send us your version of how you believe these lines should combine into a new poem or work of art. Also here is a visual of the 26 lines by d.  All the poems and poets are listed below on earlier posts.  Thanks for visiting the live site or the virtual site…Keep spreading poetry….ciao, David and Loveday.


No sunbeams on this exhausted day

kāore ngā hihi ki     he ra tino hūhē

Walk incandescent to this stilly place

Stand there by the polar bear

Softly, calmly, immensity taps at your life

Waves rise and fall, but the sea remains

Nothing can kill me, for I am the crowd

Were we close, meanwhile, to the idea of love?

The sparrow arrives with the package  

Be the simple thing you are meant to be

I have a beard and a small fat crab inside my shell

To hear its hum, a tongue within tongues

This is what the tree sings

A foreign language caresses my mouth like a piercing on somebody else’s tongue

We shall never win fighting ourselves

Isn’t it enough just to enjoy their compelling sound? She sighs

Afakasi flags awaken Kiwis – agile sine qua non inter-islanders

This afternoon, with its shouts of children

Where the ink bleeds cooly in the storm

Any narrative is false; lit side of the coin, the coin being phenomena


You hold grandmother’s pyrex dish to the stars

‘We have had the most ferociously unflyable skies’  

In the airlock of a space station, my heart shaking like an epileptic star.

Our bodies are disobedient to the seasons they have learnt

Water is not holy until you swallow it

the gurus have been hiding

May this blog help you connect with amazing ways artists and writers are engaging creatively with poetry and literature today. And also, help you discover your own triggers of joy.
