Still my mind and teach me to hear
the absence of a stream
the sparkle of air, crystal clear
the outline of a dream
still my mind and teach me to read
the red lines behind the gauge
give me the skillsets that I need
to deink and strip this page
open me up to the noughts hidden
in the maze of days and nights
the trees and music, tinsel, ribbons
the spectra of festive lights
teach me to grow through colours and shapes
of silence, absence and voidscapes.
So...that's the final word. It's been a relentlessly hard year, glad to see the back of it. Thank you for your support and your time, here and on the other platforms of engagement. Wishing you a joyful, peaceful and healthful New Year 2021.
