Sky Beast

By Lili Bird

I am with the cliffs tonight 
drenched in storm 
I am a wild 
shattering thing 
needle-toothed and 
breakable

full of old earthy 
echoes full 
of blood 

and I follow 

a path for fire-eyed things 
that want to nestle 
with the tempest. 


Lili Bird is a writer and visual artist from the Blue Mountains, Australia. Having spent a long time in the wilds of Canada, Iceland, Scotland, and her own rugged bushland home, Lili draws inspiration from her love of travel, road trips, and remote wilderness exploration. Central to her work are themes of duality, vulnerability, beauty, fear, and love, encapsulating her experiences as a young woman. Her writing has been published in Woman Cave Collective, and she recently had her first solo art show in Sydney.
