Blurred vision …

Once,

I saw the stars swim out of the inky darkness of the night

into the silver slip-stream of a comet’s trail;

they swam, they glittered and they gleamed.

I was mistaken.

It was a vision seen as through a shattered glass;

a vestige of a broken dream.

It was not as it seemed –

tears trembling; eyelash-blurred,

from eyes bruised by the blackness of a nightmare

had fallen soothed and smoothed

into the spangled fragments of the reassuring light.

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
