Paris Nuit 2016

A blackbird drops song

onto the surface of night

note by note. Slowly,

stave by stave

diluting darkness.

    The earth has lost a beautiful talent
    My lovely cousin Seamus
    In His honour….

    From across the mourning pond
    You were with me
    Listening, watching words on the tube
    it comforts

    wild and weary

    hurting hearts

    waste not the wind

    Fly and soar

    Heron crossing
