We Must Be Fair To Belinda

Like small children divorces are messy

Legal fees only add to the frustration

But perhaps the hardest thing of all

Is coping with an ex-partner's indignation

 

It's not easy but we must be fair to Belinda

She gave me the best years of her life

Of course dear, you are my partner now

The Land

Sitting to the east

Sloping down to the edge  

Of that other world

Where she crossed Nant yr Efail ...

There is no such thing as a glass ceiling 

Nights with her will leave you reeling

That surrounds and nourishes my soul.

 

And so now I –

still stranded, umbral shade of past desire – 

                        left, am guardian of sad recall

watching branch and blo...

In the beginning

In the beginning he would wake at every peculiar sound that came from the babies crib 

In the beginning he would bring me a beverage as I fed his son whilst the moon was dimly lit 

In the beginning he would rush home from work eager to see the family he created 

In the beginning we were the people whom he could be himself and escape with 

In the beginning we were enough 

 

He wou...
