Vaughan Walker
Vaughan Williams Walker

My name is Vaughan Williams Walker. I'm a Designer of everything graphic and currently studying ecommerce in Limerick. I was born in the Rep of Ireland in a cottage amidst the hills of Wicklow, but have spent most my life on the rocks in the Burren. I've neglected writing but have put together a minimal collection of about 20 poems. Although I prefer to paint writing is something I return to now and again when emotions don't visualise.

Mother and Earth by Vaughan Williams Walker

Long deep immersive caves
Hold awake these open idle graves.
A solid figure holds still his dreams bent
To the power of your will.

So I sat there,
chilled by the renditions of stone cold hearts.
Tears fleeting all life only to disperse,
Into the drowning pools of the melancholy.
An aura disappearing into the void of life, set ablaze
So you could not blacken their grey days with colourful ways

When colour left that day
I put your wallpaper far away,
In hidden that dusty vase, and lost my smile
