Falling Leaves Time


I definitely hibernate in winter so if I post more recipes, book reviews and knitting patterns than poems it is because I am not out and about as much...


Falling Leaves Time



All myths and legends have their Tartarus

their underworld journey

through darkness to rebirth

and regeneration;

Native American Indians call it

Falling Leaves Time.


In Newgrange we squatted in darkness

and waited for a shaft of light

that would herald the promise

of a new dawn.

So for now I will hold my feet

in my mouth and wait

for the coming of Solstice
