Things to Love

January 11, 2019

The determination of hate          

how damp wood likes to hiss          

the way water speaks with stone          

the impermanence of fire          

the permanence of photographs          

the victory of two over one          

weeds sovereignty over lawns           

the conviction of nettles to belong          

the slurpy sound of bracken          

being ripped from the earth

how air lives its freedom

and freedom loves the air

being swallowed whole by the ocean

blue flame skies at Fanore

the suddenness of freckles after sun

whiskey’s lucidity

the stern humour in coffee

the victory of one over two

blood, wine

the razzamatazz of dandelions

butterflies with ragged wings.


This planet and its song

offerings everywhere

should we choose to look and see.
