Intangible …

WATERS OF JADE OFF PORTSCATHO

I try to touch

the sunlight dancing

on the sea of jade

before clouds efface

the burning rays

and the bejewelled

scintillations fade.

Is such beauty tangible?

It strikes my soul

a glancing blow

in hammered steel;

my heart the anvil ..

my memory seared

by its impress:

a lightning flash

of intangibleness … .

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
