Dinefwr castle …

Castell Dinefwr;

stark stone

towers and ramparts

hard as war,

stands guard still,

high above this valley

misted in time;

holding history to its cold heart ..

yet I wonder which sentry’s eyes,

like mine,

looked through this ravaged,

jagged arch

and beyond the castle’s keep,

to see a peace-filled land below

with fields of grazing sheep ..

and, in silence,

watched the sinuous Tywi flow … .

Reticent .. but I hope my poetry speaks for me .. Favourite quotation .. ' Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.' Ludwig Wittgenstein
