Canqi and Breda, in Budapest and Tyrone respectively, joined me in writing an ode back on the Winter Solstice morning. As we approach (so soon!) the Summer Solstice, I thought it would be fun to post them up.
“We mark today
The turning of this year of loneliness of the heart
With this parting#New community.
Lovely what? Very good!
Winter Solstice 2020
A delicate sapling of two little Scots Pines,
Irish Oak are being planted out later today.
They leave the nursery
To go off and live in a public park
Beside a stream
With all the bigger trees
And join the wood wide web in the cold earth.
Fab, what? Well done poets. It calls for a painting to match I think.
I found one more…
Tim climbed a tree – A
Really Big tree.
Everything looked so small
Except little Tim. (From our Listowel PoeTREE workshop in 2018…at the bottom of my bag!)
