August 2014

Delicious, velvet evenings slip slowly in….

A sloe-skin dusk furs,
Trees retreat respectfully,
The hills smudge violet.

*****************************

Massed colours along the river, trees, wild foliage, purple loosestrife filling the far bank, kingfishers….

Orange-blue-green flash
along mirrored river banks.
Loosestrife in riot.

******************************

Bright, full moon on the wane…

Splintered shards of moon
pierce the dark solid of hedge.
Truant wind slips through.

******************************

August nights grow deep…

Trees grow arrogant.
Roads become mysterious.
Stars widen the World.

******************************

Ceol i ngach a’n áit…

Fonn ‘gaoithe sa chrainn.
Dreoilín sa chlaí ag canadh.
Amhráin gan focail.
