Ocean to mountain –

Now a riverside pathway ~

Folding space and time.


One hour from the strip –
More meaning in one crossbed ~
The Valley of Fire. 

Trench geology –
Note before I go over ~
The layers of time.

Distant sunset clouds –
Make believe a mountain range ~
Time is speeded up. 


To the Motherland for a while –
It is clear that I must visit the Sea –

Pick up the familiar clasts and cast them into the surf –

The headlands that I can trace in my sleep, as familiar as the back of my hands (changing with age, wind and sun) –

The sound of the waves, hypnotic and addictive, never easy to leave –

Easier knowing they will always be there, indeed there will always be an Ireland, long after we are all gone.


Leaf veins, decaying –
Networks, paths, roads, fibres, lines ~
Fading too, in time.


Croagh Patrick’s summit –
Looks down on Clew Bay drumlins ~
Dreaming of The Ice.


Before we were here –
Horsetails, at the edge of life ~
and after we’re gone.


Pentre Mawr sunset –
Vale of Clwd, shock of Spring ~
Nothing new for oaks.


Sneaky Gryphaea
Waiting all this time, silent ~
Then painted, at last.
