Illustrated Text


Louise Oliver ~ I have written monologues, poems, song lyrics and text for a variety of contexts, such as theatre, radio plays, video and sound installations, public sculptures, CDs.

These short prose poems are available to view:


In Gardens of Patterned Breezes

“In gardens of patterned breezes
where scented rivers flow
I come and go.”




To Rise On A Magenta Dawn

“I wake to see dawn clouds dancing,
on a morning shot through with incandescent beauty,
in a world riddled with fierce tribulations.”



A Song of Invisible Mending

“My grandmother used to sit in the blue chair and do her darning, bits of patchwork and invisible mending.

Now, when I sink into the worn velour,
I drop in on her dreams.”
