The Search

He’s no longer here
in the present
just an echo
of the past -
left behind in
little clues
for me to find.
A name in a paper,
a face in a photo,
a name whispered
in sadness…
One by one
they reveal themselves
as I sift through
all the grit
to find the
nuggets of gold
below.

Gone but not Forgotten

That’s the last substantial tree gone then. My newish neighbour hates trees. Thinks they are going to fall on her so told me of her plan to uproot everything along our boundary. Previously a nice secluded, if a little wild, place to relax and enjoy some privacy in our garden – now completely open to be overlooked from her back lawn (can’t call it a garden) and the street beyond.
I wonder where the little inquisitive robin will nest this year…

The mark of the Dragon

Fiery dragon’s-claw
Scars the Welsh skyline.
Feels like coming home
Now we are in the
Land of my Mother’s…

Like flowers
that bloom when
nurtured…sometimes wildness prevails!

Immersed in the Countryside

16.3.14
Basking in the
unfamiliar
warmth and sunshine
of a Spring newly
sprung,
we traipse over fields
and waterlogged
meadows.
Then later, laughing
with tiredness,
we peel off our
mud-caked,
sun-baked
layers –
to soak our bones
in scented water
and watch nature’s soap
disappear
down the plughole
along with our
worries.
Such bliss!

Blue

Deep, deep blue is my heart
like the ocean of tears
I have cried
For you
Deep blue

Perspectives

Funny
How interpretation
Changes with
Perspective.

Clarity

Art is our home. This door is open, always, to all, and yet permits not the entry of draft or rain. The doused may find solace, and repose, in the warmth of this hearth. For the sparks of these words - the spectres conjured by its incandescence - are a family whose love is unconditional, and will ever blaze, kindling within us the faith to weather these tempests. The ashes may then be scattered upon the winds - to ignite the lost, and unify our souls as one, in unquenched illumination; to be the light which guides us home, through the darkest of eclipse.
