Earth

Sitting here
looking at you
taking you in
trying
with all my heart
to connect
to understand
to feel your pain

But, there is no need
you’ve been here
a long, long time
and your pain
has always been with you
because
pain birthed you
and you turn it
into something beautiful

A Birthday treat to Hay-on-Wye

While at my sister’s we visited Hay-on-Wye. It was a 60th birthday treat to myself 🙂

I’ve not been there for years and sadly 5 or 6 books had closed, possibly due to covid. There was enough there still to fill a day’s book hunting.

I do enjoy reading philosphy books, and other books of an esoteric nature, not that I’m at all clever enough to be a philosopher!

Anyhow, I enjoyed Hay immensely and here’s the result 😀

Eye Music

Footsteps no steps
marks of breath
busking butterflies
shibboleth.

Ways in, ways out
fragile quest
thrumbling `n` jumbling
ragged rest.

Pregnant pausing
smiles of glass
coffee and a cake
eye music blast.

DeciBells sing
church refrain
tree bending plaza
coup de main reign.

Sunset, sunrise
time to flee
macabré masquerade
imbibed reveille.

Choral mélange
cloud’s-eye view
nothing beats it more
than the human zoo!
