èirigh na grèine / sunrise

Karen Bain-Writer

Karen Bain - Writer

I walk towards infinity. how good to

finally be one with all in me. to lie down,

in cool rained grass. to seek no more.

to lay my limbs among the roots

of trees. s t r e t c h i n g o u t the dusk

filled sky. to bleed forth dreams,

into the sap of man. let go, to breathe

to die. death as journey,

the withered path inside. returning.

recognition, under towering oak.

connecting roots, that flow beyond coming spring,

return us to the blood of life. the beating

damp earths soothe.

we whisper memory into the wind,

as overhead, crow flies free,

awakening earths sunrise.

        Wow! Thanks for telling me – I don’t know how to say this but the shape and structure of Gaelic resonates with me somewhat, even though I can’t read it. It fits the poem very well.

      2. You’re welcome.. yes gaelic is a wonderful language of voice & song of people.. and of land.. of past & present.. it echoes. the structure of my poem sits within it’s landscape hopefully. Thanks again for your comment.
