For October's Poem of the Month, I have chosen the poem Drifting by Kerrie O' Brien
It is taken from her collection Out of the Blueness.


there is talk in the air
but it lowers

as the light disappears
and the colours
explore the room

pink in the blue in the black
disguising themselves

everything is moving
slightly – like so

but we remain still

new in the dark
pulled in and glittering

I know you most in these hours
