Moonbeams

Poem By Theresa Daly

Where are you tonight
this first glimpse of
spring? The night all
balmy, the moon full-

Jupiter sparking up
beside it, a cloudless
sky ablaze, bathed
in its glow;

the air, sweet scented
and light, sponge- cake
and springy, I want
to walk to the water

to wake the swans,
take to the swings;
to growl, to howl-for you to
slither into me;

but it is late
or early in the morning,
and no longer safe
to roam alone

and you are somewhere
between tomorrow and
yesterday; as far away as
moonbeams.

Lost

Mist
weeps across the stones
like tears that sweep
this woman's cheek

Claddagh Solstice

A hooker docked
in the basin sways
in the wake of wild swans
who nibble from the red

Promise

I promise to tell you someday
when I can let the words
slip through the gate of my lips;

Reckoning

Again & again
I find myself here
in this limbo
of living.

Track

The sparkle in the lough
has dulled, its luminous water
now mud green speckle,

Pa & Molly

I remember past
St. Paddy's days
You'd whisper
'make a wish'
