"The thing that made someone care for their sea" by M.A.A.
Tomorrow let him love who never loved –do not let it pass,
so it appeared out of the blue, showing itself in a glass,
an exchange of stares, the freezing cold, going back and forth,
little interest for what, who brought us this form in this mass,
but let it be known, its cravings will make it reckless and bold,
its scales grey and unwavering, they manoeuvre with its breath,
lost islands dancing on its shell, occupying skies of men,
as a piece of hell or of us or them, who made it appear,
in the times of onyxian space, we had solitude here,
now lost in someone's favour, this beast came to ruin our thread,
let's reclaim the pieces together, before the thing comes near,
gift our sea the blessing of our fervour, and soon it will spread,
Dione shall lead, for she denies the dead worlds lurking about,
the flying rock rejoices in her warmth, yet remains apart,
forever they will spend dancing, never to utter a word,
but if it could speak, it would force us into fear and sorrow,
it gently proclaiming - he who has loved shall love tomorrow.
"Moon" by S.J. Saighead
The taste of your name in his mouth
was something he had dreams about,
but now he sits, lets smoke consume
his body under the watch of moon.
Under the night of pale moonlight
he watched a girl dance round and round;
unknown to her, she caught his sight
where he too had hid, looking to be found.
She moved within a faerie ring
like robins in the air might do:
swaying, turning, ducking, bobbing
navigating the space by filling it.
And when breath and cold air did meet,
nature had made something he did love:
for as she danced, shrouded in mist
he lost your name to those above.
My name is Seán and I am the creator and curator of the Artistic Differences Project. I started this project during the lockdown in Ireland due to COVID-19 in March 2020 as a way to get my friends and I creating during a troubling time. From there the project as gone from strength to strength and now we publish a new exhibition every two weeks.
