There where the grey mountain Holds its head against the sky There lies my heart in joy  There where the wanton sea Its waves against the rocks does break There lies my heart in joy  There where the green Earth Its face in the Sun does bare There lies my heart in joy  There where the salt laden air Assaults my breath There lies my heart in joy  There where the city lights In the sky like   #emotion #feeling #joy #life #optimism

Winter sunrise Salmon vapoured clouds In beryl sky swim Geese flying In playful arrowed form Pass over me My footfall On iced grass remains A lonely path  By still steaming river  Days early silence As life from darkened sleep arises Assails a brooding reverie And returns me whole To my humanity  26/11/2009   #countryside #Memory #Remembrance #River #walk #Winter

Beneath a sky cast sapphire blue By a stand of lonely blue gum trees Some cattle gather shaded from incessant heat Still they stand, panting statues Except for ears flicking flies away Across the red dust dry veld A dust devil whirls tall Past shimmering, stuttering skull white houses  Hurling papers and bits In an impotent rage against the hot hard ground From the distance the sound of   #Africa #heat #Memory #tired

And another one dies Of AIDS, of TB, of cancer What does it matter? We don't care Why should we? I doesn't affect us Secure in our towers of privilege Looking down on those below.   #anger #life #poor #society

Sun setting Behind hills of brown Crows fly Crows cry Beneath greying clouds The old shepherds road Lies empty now A home for thistle And heather And memories A burn peat stained Chases down Steep gullies Over rocks and tumbles To darkening river below And flows sludge slow Under stone still bridge Past field And bank To forest shadowed All is quiet now The still of dusks deep   #countryside #emotion #feeling #Memory #Remembrance

We are all journeying Coming from nowhere Travelling to nowhere Our sojourn we spend In confusion Without understanding Ourselves Or those around us  We die As we have lived Alone And are immediately forgotten By those we loved And are left To turn to dust In peace And loneliness To spend eternity Alone Forever alone  18/09/2000   #Journey #life #lives #nothingness

The grey cold of winter rain lashes face and hands and me. Raven clouds dark as my damaged thoughts lie overhead, threatening, sinister. Muddy paths leading to muddy places through trees scoured clean by loathsome storms. Past verdant leaves indifferently slaughtered scud across my shadowed dreary view.   #Remembrance #River #Sadness #walk #Winter

I found a photograph the other day Of me in younger clothes Squirreled away buried in battered cardboard cave Dingy, dusty, damaged, Dumped in haste behind old books In a long forgotten corner Of an aged loft Where all my other junk Of long past lives Lies forlorn, discarded And there I saw The well remembered outline of my youth The thirsty eyes Full of hope And love And innocence   #feeling #Memory #Past #Remembrance #Sadness
