These poems come from the beauty of the glimpsed moment … a precious jewel held for a short time amid the pain and sorrow of the world, then let go into the bigger picture … The beauty is what we remember, what gives the moment its significance.
It’s the way it’s always been:
to reach the sea, to stand 
watching, waiting; to know
that nothing can be unravelled
to its core
but is like reflecting
where wild flowers 
gathered in a vase, framed
by a shore cottage window
make of themselves
a sea-wide subject: 
the beauty 
of things together.
A blackbird sings 
and the song echoes
in fragments of memory.
