River Einion

A Waterfall On the River Einion There, the Dyfi Furnace remains Where the waters once raced To a mill from the top With all its power Leading to this waterwheel Taking advantage of the powers Of this river From Cumbria via the Afon Dyfi Where charcoal was once produced Long ago from the local woodlands, Where iron ore once burned; But burns no more. The Dyfi Furnace is in the village of Furnace, Ceredigion, Wales, adjoining the A487 trunk road from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth, near Eglwysfach. The furnace was built around 1755 was only used for about fifty years to … Continue reading River Einion

Living for the Moments

Waltzing into my existence with shoes fit for  A Welsh guard.  Intentions of conquering the unknown, Within the melodies laughing in my heart, Holding my hand,  Unlike you did with the others.  Instead, you found me nestled in your arms; A proclamation of love; in that bearskin hat.  It wasn’t too hard to love you properly. Finding myself shine in the gleam of a smile,  Where I discovered you in the dark  In the depths of innocence,  I was dressed like Paddington Bear There was no denying you in that uniform,  Realising running was not an option.  That is when … Continue reading Living for the Moments

Aberaeron

Aberaeron Lobster Boat On Sunday, we drove West into the beautiful Aeron Valley. To Aberaeron, a harbour town much loved by the poet Dylan Thomas who lived there locally for a while. At the mouth of the Aeron River, is where we spent the afternoon. We dined at the Harbormaster; an historic listed building. Aberaeron was built on a level area between the mountains and the sea. A land  formed during the last ice-age 10,000 years ago. And in 1148 a castle was built there. It was a 12th century medieval fort on the sea-shore, near the village. Castell Cadwgan, … Continue reading Aberaeron

Embraced

We just returned from Ireland.  What an incredible place. It’s old there. I felt like it had embraced me; us.  You know that part of you that makes you feel as if you belong there? It’s a special place; mystical I think.  Believe it or not, we stayed in places where there was no internet or television! We took the doggies with us; they loved it.  But today, for the first time, it feels like summer here in Swansea. Yesterday I think the temperature came nearer to 80° warmer than I’ve ever seen it here.  Everything is green there in … Continue reading Embraced

Seven Pillars of Wisdom

I loved you, so I drew these tides of men into my hands and wrote my will across the sky in stars.   To earn you Freedom, the seven-pillared worthy house, that your eyes might be shining for me.  When we came, Death seemed my servant on the road, till we were near and saw you waiting:  When you smiled, and in sorrowful envy he outran me and took you apart: Into his quietness.  Love, the way-weary groped the body; our brief wage ours for the moment.  Before earth’s soft hand explored your shape, and the blind worms grew fat … Continue reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom
