Virescent Daydreams (Duet With Frédéric G. Martin)

By Phen Weston and Frédéric G. Martin

(I had the great pleasure and honour of working with the very talented Frédéric G. Martin over the last week. He is an inspiring and fantastic poet and if you don’t already follow him… Why not? Are you insane? His blog is linked below.)


Virescent hydration

Flourishes pseudomorph

Connections with copper



Malachite prayer

Time in geosynchronous orbit

Petrified devotion

Growth rings of spiritual elevation


Tabular consciousness

Holds prismatic memories

What crystallised destiny

Wakes within your core


And stone

Becomes aware


Evaporates into thin air


They say, “We are the stuff

That dreams are made on,”

But, what dreams you conjure

Within your graceful lines,


“And our little life

Is rounded with a sleep.”

But, what passions you remember

Within your heavy silences.
