This is who you've always been,The wind between the branches;Bright blossom in the fields of spring;The moon's low light at night. The echo 'tween the tall top treesAnd the skyscrapers dancing. Within the silent sighs of the breathing seaYour home is where you love. And this, this has always been the place,Next to the lake and the mountain … Continue reading This Is Who We Are
We stretch our arms out to reach the borders,Over water and under sky we catch the breeze.I place my heart lightly on your dreams,To see if it melts, to see how it feelsFor just one lifetime to love and be lovedWithout hesitation, without resignation. If there was a road over the sea,I would walk to you, … Continue reading Roads Across The Sea
As well as putting three new books together I have been recording some of my work lately. This is, Goodnight Vincent, from my book Bones and a Broken Hearts*note train noise happened at just the right time so I left it in for dramatic effect!! https://soundcloud.com/phillip-mellor/goodnight-vincent
Aside from my own work, from time to time I will be sharing things that I love and that inspire me. I absolutely adore this amazing artists work! If you are in the Seattle area on the 2nd of April you might like to support the wonderful Heather Carr. She will be showcasing her work alongside other artists at the Raw event and I hear there will be food, drink and live music too… Follow the link in the article to purchase your entry ticket (only $15) but if you can’t make it and you love what you see, please consider a ticket purchase as this will support her entry into this wonderful event. I hear she is halfway to fulfilling her ticket allocation to cover her entry fee, so a ticket purchase would go such a long way to help her. Hope you can support her and make it to what is sure to be a fantastic evening of art. Thank you.
As a shy artist, I’ve got to be the worst promoter in the world, but I’m going to give it a go now… (deeeep breath…) OK! So…
I’ve been given a great opportunity to be part of an Artists Showcase that is taking place April 2, at the Fremont Foundry. It’s going to be quite a party, with bands, fashion designers and visual artists showing off their creations. RAW Artists was created several years ago to help emerging artists get exposure and I’m really excited that they sought me out to join their showcase.
If you would like to support my art (whether or not you can attend) you can purchase a ticket on my RAW artist page for $15. The only cost to me for the show is the agreement to sell 20 tickets by March 25th. I have to make up the difference for any I do not sell. I…

there's a bird singing in my gardenthe notes of the new day sun,an equinox of the love that risesthrough our hearts as one. his song fills our senses to mingleand merge with these parallel shifts.a cornucopia of wonder waitsat the borders of our fingertips. there's a bird singing in my gardenhe sings his song only for you.he … Continue reading springtime bird
What is poetry? I got asked this the other day by someone who was curious about my writing and what made me choose to write poetry. The latter question is easy, I didn't choose to, it just happened. It seemed to be the way that felt most natural for me to express what I needed … Continue reading Poetry (an Essay)
your naked breath upon my skin, hands wound tight like galaxies spiralling. landscapes crumble into silent streams where whispers melt with echoes. dreams in the ethereal sky star a still seaand ripple the veil in front of my eyes. forgive me if my mouth is speechless at this, but the sweep of your … Continue reading heart-kiss
the carrion crow of my soul takes his nightly seat,like clockwork, around midnight he claims his post.dedicatedly he picks at the meat, as one dead eye fixes me.a caw shrieks the stillness like a yellow streak of moon,with this, the memories of you begin their feast. your hair falling like autumn leaves,scattering colours on a painters … Continue reading scatterings
