Wight Sketches

The Needles is a row of three distinctive chalk sea stacks that rise out of the sea off the western extremity of the Isle of Wight. There is a lighthouse at the end of the stacks.

Okay, so I’ve not been around for a while. A mix of block and illness has conspired to keep me from writing but, tentatively, I seem to be back although the first bit of poetry I’ve written is as dense and cryptic as it used to be before I learned to relax. I can only assume that the more i write, the most relaxed I’ll be so I’ll return to these sketches at a later date.

Wight Sketches

Tennyson sighs from the western 
edge of the calcium spine and watches 
as the wabbit sun sinks through sixpence 
air; a satinate fragmentation; a soft 
squandered marbling of rose and violet 
stains his stretch of lapis rapture.

Gorse gilds the weald at the site 
where Ado fell, drowning in her saline
wash, threading and weaving around chalk 
stacks in a passive, deathless dabka. 

More like crossword clues but, hey…
