christmas in cornwall


the sound of the rain battering on the roof & dripping down the chimney – the ocean, right outside our window – bats swooping silently close to our heads poked out the window – the fury of the storms – staying indoors – going outside – trees growing sideways, persuaded that way by the prevailing winds – four packs of polaroid film – rocks that look like shipwrecks, and stained glass windows, and the skeletal remains of some great sea creature – the coastal path – champagne for breakfast – lunch at fifteen – the passing of a beloved friend – the comfortable quietness of being alone on the beach


One Hundred voices
with one hundred
all asking
the same thing:
Where are you
lost as you seem?
They wonder.
am on my way
is the only
truthful answer
I have.
