Emotions

When he said, “I just want you to stay.” To do whatever it takes to keep me in you my arms. Stay with me even if times are challenging because I know you love me. I know that this is true.  Working on a Further Leave to Remain to stay here with you. The application process means hundreds of questions; lots of requirements; meeting every one. Submissions of different documents, photos and proofs; it’s really me; it is a true test of wills where the equation is patience, endurance and emotions.  Why does the truth require proof. I guess it … Continue reading Emotions

The Garden

We talk and in conversations where I take everything in. We talk about everything; sometimes all night and then there are days, when we are just content to be together.  I love our walks through the park with the dogs. They take us through the flowering trees in the botanical gardens. I think about how much happiness this garden has brought to many.   There I consider how much the trees towers over us. I love how rough the bark feels under my touch. How they flower and thrive even in the most extreme weather. How the boughs of blossoms … Continue reading The Garden

Light Captured

The sudden light of cloudburst sprinkles and pastel hues and hopscotch lines creating rainbow designs is the question in the artists eyes while nature answers to her why’s; what is this Light?  Is it electromagnetic radiation that is visible and perceivable by the human eye?  Is it the colours between red and violet.   Does it have frequencies of terahertz, wavelengths and nanometers; equal to one billionth of a metre?  Is there is the sensation of perceiving light; it is brightness and sudden light; the medium of illumination…is that what makes sight possible. There is the illumination where it’s derived … Continue reading Light Captured

Prayer For Paris

   I blinked at the news when I heard about the slaughtered innocent in Paris.  Then I bit my lip and closed my eyes, sighing. It was late;  why Paris?  Why this, I was tired when the news came on at 3:00 AM in the morning.  I did not know why I just happen to wake up when the news came on.  Coincidence maybe. But it really gave me a sense of deep loss and longing.  All I really wanted was to hear that this wasn’t real and maybe a cup of hope or anything… I laid still next to … Continue reading Prayer For Paris

Aubade

  Aubade BY DAFYDD AP GWILYM It seemed as if we did not sleep One wink that night; I was sighing deep. The cruellest judge in the costliest court Could not condemn a night so short. We had the light out, but I know, Each time I turned, a radiant glow Suffused the room, and shining snow Alit from Heaven’s candle-fires Illuminated our desires.     But the last time I held her, strong, Excited, closest, very long, Something started to go wrong. The edge of dawn’s despotic veil Showed at the eastern window-pale And there it was,—the morning light! … Continue reading Aubade

Welsh Alder Tree

  This tree, he hammered and forged life for me Between the British border, those hot heads,Half quenched in their youth, Which we have overcome, they now just emerging from, They can’t keep me from this country they builtNo matter how universal, I’m tough,Americans do not succumb to rough justice. And now I will be always on the Welsh side, The English side of the bridge. With a loud croonings that can be heardVoices, bleeding slow currents into the surrounding air,Embracing and instilling a great Revival at last, Let my blood spill over Wales, the blood cwtching this land  It’s my choice, the choice is … Continue reading Welsh Alder Tree

Good Morning Wales – Day 4

  Good Morning Wales~ Marital Bliss Well, on the fourth day, of our marital welsh bliss, he’s already kicked me out of his bed. He says I snore and I keep him awake all night. Bollocks!  I think he snores.   Then he says, “it’s because my back hurts,” he says. sleep in your own bed. “Go on then.”  It was our first night together in separate beds. I really don’t mind; but I just pretend I do.   Continue reading Good Morning Wales – Day 4

Good Morning Wales – Day 3

   Good Morning Wales  There is a closeness I feel here in Wales, a kind of warmth and the absence of empty has created a mysterious intimacy in which we will never need to know privacy because it just exist here.  Being here with you is the ultimate familiarity and of superior fate.  When you already know the things that I love, but asking anyway; when you take me for long drives to the see the Gower, Oxwich Bay, Japanese Food, letting me prepare your breakfast, after letting me sleep in all morning;  And when he brings me Daffodils; that’s … Continue reading Good Morning Wales – Day 3

Cockle Shells

   That moment when you reach that shore, when you finally lay your body down, next to his; when everything is done and you don’t really know where all that energy came from, or how you got there. When everything seems to fall into place, when all is said and done, when the race is finally won….that someone carried you all the way and all I know this moment in time has come; I’m going home; I’m going home. I’m coming home to you.  Photo: Women collecting cockles in Pen-clawdd, Glamorgan. Photo taken by Geoff Charles, Aug 10th, 1951. Pinterest. Continue reading Cockle Shells
