Poem – ‘Psalm’



The light and the wind on the water these wild winter days are breath of it
The cardinal sun below cumulus flaring up skybeams a pulse
Gathers the gloom but high in the east celestial moon unhides behind heart-racing clouds
All in the arms of physics and this is heaven we are blessed to happen in
