Smiling

Poem By Mike Tonkin

You are dead..
Dead..
So I will think of
Green fields and blue skies,
Of birds circling high in the heavens, ,
The sun burning my back,
And your face
Smiling at me,
I know where to find
You now
I need never be
Alone again.

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

Somebody

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

Old Kea Church.

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

A Look, Two Eyes

A look. Two eyes
Filled with yearning.
A look. Two eyes
Gently burning

Aberfan

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

Wandering

Wandering
Aimlessly amongst the trees
And the wet decaying leaves.
Silence.
