Of flotsam and foundrels


A jar of jam from Russian snow

A tattered book that I can’t read

A photographic trail of love

Their upended strata pointing the way across Tan y Bwlch

Beyond the town beneath its northern cliffs


A Celtic god watches and menaces

We brave his fierce storms which shade our day
