Seekers of truth







Seekers of truth


Truths like crystals lie buried under earth
under ancient oaks and long forgotten pathways
leading to the ocean.
In the songs of yesterday adrift on the spring mist
as I gaze out over the hills.
In layers of prayers petitioned
to the universal spirit.
In cosmic shifts of a soul’s migration
from way before birth
to beyond the end of life.
We seek it in books
in passing thoughts that nudge us
towards a face in the crowd.
In the faces of the old.
With others on the journey
truth emerges out of the dark
returning as the light
within.

From 'Guth an Anam'

Bundoran, County Donegal (poem)










Bundoran, County Donegal


Embracing the salt curtain of the green Atlantic
sway to and fro towards me;
waves rest on the algae rocks rounded to a
smooth knob. Belts of seaweed find resting places
in pools of water clear as amber.
I hear the children’s screams from the ghost train
shuttling in the distance, but the Atlantic calls
me back towards it again. Stained by history,
there’s something about this ocean that calls
to me, healing my winter worn trunk.
Perhaps it’s there, deep in the blue where I’ll find
solace. Where old wrecks filled with tales
from when time began, uniting stories of inland
folk finding gods in the wilderness of boglands
and meeting goddesses of the deep.

Poem ~ Flame







flame



It draws my eyes this little fire
with its uneasy soft flickers
and attempts to sizzle out
i hope it doesn't it's a good feel
to get lost in its movements
a conductor in tune with the ether
dancing against the beige walls
losing myself in thought i enjoy
this elevated moment in time
lost to the landscape of memory
and into the universe for someone else
