home 2017

22 january 2017
the first time the sea froze at home
for 25 years

'I saw the violet turn to night
I saw the water turn to ice
A thousand snowflakes hovered ‘round me
The world aglow

I heard a distant songbird singing
A song the words I used to know
And as the melody went ringing
I felt my bones on the rocks below
The weighted trees of my only home'
