Bruny Island

Share

Enchantment and total connectedness made the stones speak.|
My soul and body, my breath,
Life force.

My relationship with the water gives me knowledge.
Effortless, I conjure up ancient history.
My imagination is rife.

Luna Wannaaloonah.
The Nuenone People.
Their spirits give a brooding frisson to my present time.
Sixty thousand year old burnt remains of shells lie in a sandwich of ochre and mud.

Shetland Elegy

The wind had a memory,
It told me of things that had never been said,
Storms of history, ancient runes, broken, dismembered,
Then thrown into my face in spume. ‘Saat.’
The sickle edged moon etched,
Acid formed in the backdrop of my world.

He sauntered by the ancient grounds
sold to yellow haired tourists

took notice of the innumerable dead
under the soil and above it

Delphi

Even this solemn remnant
of the ancient temple standing
like an anchorite in meditation
by the slope of the tired hill
even this they shall defile
remember this—I said

The British Museum

Outshining the statues of Hathor and Ramesses II
truer to life than the coffin lids picturing Osiris, Isis and Horus
the bright Aegean light
revealing the half-clothed and voluptuous Aphrodite
Demeter seated on throne
Apollo holding kithara
