The Poetry Place

December already?

Sunday, 7 December 2014 17:45:45

I found some notes jotted down earlier in the year. These might serve as a place to begin.

the sea is visible again    the mist rolls back

but shyly. we see   not as through a glass darkly

but through suburban lace   make out what we can

the headlands, the islands   a shapeless mark  on what would be the horizon

things we know are there but will not be revealed

before the dark comes on with blackout drapes.
