A Look, Two Eyes

Poem By Mike Tonkin

A look. Two eyes
Filled with yearning.
A look. Two eyes
Gently burning
Into mine.
Such warmth,
Such tenderness
Was in those eyes,
it was as if the trembling sky
Looked on me.
A look. Two eyes
Searching and discerning in mine
A gaze returning, the tenderness
And lit with such intensity
As to make her tremble like the sky.
A look. Two eyes.
Holding my world,
Causing me to unfold
From within myself
And pour out through my eyes
My love for her.

Your Life Etched In Time

Before you there where women who delighted,
But when you came along you were
The only one, there were not enough
Stars in the sky


Who is this woman
Who came into my life
Eons ago,

Old Kea Church.

I saw it first
When I was five,
It was small,
So small


On 21st of October 1966 a tip of coal slurry slid
Into the village of Aberfan and 144 people were
Of these 116 were children who were buried


Aimlessly amongst the trees
And the wet decaying leaves.
