Redisover the power of language

In the era of endless text messages and social media, rediscover the delicate beauty of the written word and its power to connect to those you adore.

SOMETHING NEW FROM LOVEBIRDS

Hello I'm David, a poet and one of the two hopeless romantics behind this website, LoveBirds. The other hopeless one is Victoria, my gorgeous wife. Together we've been been serving up divine nests for sweethearts like you since 2006. This is my new venture.

Designed to sprinkle even more love around, each poem in a test tube has been written and strung together by hand with tender loving care by me, and only me.

Ask yourself this: what could be more delightful than receiving a beautiful original poem from someone you hold dear?

Answer: Giving one.

Visit davidishighlystrung.com to send one of my original poems to a special someone that deserves a little love or inspiration.

A SELECTION FROM THE POETRY MENU

YOU WOULD BE AN OWL

you would be an owl
whose eyes grow wider
with every who
what 
why

THE LAST FLICKER OF LIGHT

I walked to the middle of her soul
she had poetry carved into her walls
I read her stories until the last flicker of light

HELLO LITTLE ONE

hello little one
this is the beginning
your unblemished face  
waiting for stories to be written 
folded crumpled and creased
read by adoring eyes 
time will cast lines across your skin 
weighed down by nostalgia 
lines will constrain and tug 
when fishing for glorious youth

THE BOMB IS DAWN

let the angst burn its fuse
the bomb is dawn 
what a beautiful idea the day is

YOUR LITTLE HOT FEET

the sun has offered you to the moon
warm soil cools after summer skies
curious stories of the night
take place behind flickering eyes
I love your vulnerable face
flushed from palpable heat
your little hot feet
the owl
the cricket
and me
grin back at the moon
with no chance of sleep

WE ARE FRENETIC

we are frenetic
we are fast
we are many tiny rockets
better we collide
than miss

ERODED STONE

I search for trips that tumble me down hills 
breaking rough edges that cut when held 
cracked by the temper of hot and cold 
this is the only I 
I know 
common geology tossed and thrown 
landing in your loving hands 
eroded stone

  • Such a cool idea!! I have to confess I bought one for a friend, then decided to keep it. That's bad right? Oh well, will just have to buy another one :)
