On the Quai Voltaire

written by: Elodie Rose Barnes



Thunder - somewhere
the sky has shattered.
A single raindrop echoes a warning
for the deluge.

Some moments have
no beginning

they come
from nowhere and no one
sees them go,
and in one of those moments
we are soaked,
feet holding down the earth

two bodies laughing
in chaos

Elodie Rose Barnes is an author, poet and artist with a serious case of wanderlust. She is originally from the UK, but has spent time abroad in Europe, the United States and the Bahamas. Her love of travel and seeing new places has inspired a fascination with the ideas of time and space, and this seeps into most of her writing. Her work has been accepted in The Confessionalist, Down in the Dirt Magazine, Crêpe & Penn, and The Purple Breakfast Review (Wordsmith HQ). Current projects include a chapbook of poetry inspired by family history, time, and "lost things", and a novel based on the life of modernist writer and illustrator Djuna Barnes.
