On New Year Morning



Halfway up the rise looking back 

across the Hamlet rooftops,

through scented woody swirls,

I see six horses like statues bent to earth,

necks and fetlocks steam with strength.


In the space between us only silence,

though there lie a hundred souls to sleep, to dream,

yet not one to see this sight.

This New Years Morn when life is all and everything.


I will not pray to thank imagined Gods 

nor they commune with me,

but a heart does fill with love and hope

when eyes such beauty see.

Thankyou Poemagraphic.

I cannot deny my gratitude for your reading and comments, to do so would be churlish whatever the reason.

Thankyou Ray and Kate,

I have been very fortunate recently to have been able to immerse myself in nature, specifically some great countryside, and with that too have been closer to the wildlife. I agree with what you say Ray, sometimes to commune it is better to be alone. The best times of my life have been those moments when I feel at one with this planet and its creatures, there is a frequency within us which if we are lucky enough occasionally autotunes us to somewhere beyond words. Those moments are the most uplifting in existance, well maybe that and that point of bliss which only exists in the knowledge of true love.

Thanks again,

I love this David. You have created a beautiful sense of stillness and wonder that comes from witnessing rare moments in the early hours... When our eyes, ears and hearts are truly open to the world. Thank you.

Dare I use the word communion - that's what came into my head David. A sharing of a greater whole than while alone, and yet sometimes you have to be, I believe to let yourself resonate to such feelings.

An uplifting treat for the new year mate. !
