       STORM HORSES

The horses of the night in shining darkness fly;

With wings of lightning, hooves of thunder,

They burst asunder

The leaded sky.

 

The horses of the night in starry waters drink;

With wild eyes gleaming and wild manes streaming,

They follow the storm

To the world's brink.

 

Then to the sodden earth they glide to take their ease;

With folded wings, eyes full of wonder,

They stand there under

The dripping trees.         

 

Sun On The Hill

 

Daw haul ar fryn”

they say in Wales,

Sun will come on a hill”.

So put on your wellies,

get out in the rain,

and let life’s weather

send what it will.


Though the landscape

is nought but storm-tossed sky

with never a sign of a hill,

as the storm exults,

and the clouds unfold.

The hills will reveal

themselves, lurking still

and somewhere there

on a distant hill

a velvet patch of gold.


Daw haul ar fryn is pronounced dow hile ar vrin

 

 

 

 

PEACE IS A PASSING CONDITION

 

Peace is a passing condition;

    A brief cessation

    of more than hostilities.

    It is tangible, indefinable.

    There was a peace in that room

    that transcended

    the tensions in the air.

    Did we share it?

    Or was it a gift you gave me,

                                                                 unaware?
