Brimble Cottage

IMG_1623Tucked away on Dartmoor;

Vibrant life among the ancient stones.

 

Life building on the past;

Romantic decay.

 

Reprieve from a merciless pace

Of automatic messages.

The flashing motto,

“WORK UNTIL YOU DROP,”

Cemented to every high-rise.

 

The cock crows the hour.

The ponies make their daily pilgrimage

Along the narrow hedgerow.

 

Honeysuckle morning;

Lavender purple.

The bees explore.

Gold encrusted legs

Fit for a queen.

 

Stone cross along the roadway

Cannot weather a millennia

Slowly melting into a monolith.

 

A father’s nuptial speech

For his golden-haired daughter.

Attentive and authentic;

Like the love that binds them.

 

Four generations share

Elusive time.

The silence,

As much as the conversation,

Will strengthen

The family.

 

Reflections

In a courtyard.

I write,

As the equine God observes.

The Great War

Image result for 1913 womanHands folded

Tight

Nails dig into skin.

Corset bound.

Breath:

Constricted,

Conditioned,

Short.

Enough to keep alive.

The truseau chest;

Life’s blood,

Her reason for being.

Started at ten;

Finished at eighteen.

Ready for the

Future.

Linen and

Embroidered bedsheets.

Victorian propriety

Her only weapon

Against the

Coming storm;

Homeless,

Manless.

Damn the War.
