you cant see the weight of the treesand you cant see the weight of the leavesand you cant see the weight of the heart

you cant see the weight of the trees
and you cant see the weight of the leaves
and you cant see the weight of the heart

that shifting landscape of the soul

that shifting landscape of the soul

Why should I not be glad to contemplate the clouds clearing beyond the dormer window and a high tide reflected on the ceiling? There will be dying, there will be dying, but there is no need to go into that. The poems flow from the hand unbidden and the hidden source is the watchful heart.The sun rises in spite of everything and the far cities are beautiful and bright. I lie here in a riot of sunlight watching the day break and the clouds flying. Everything is going to be all right. - Derek Mahon, New Collected Poems, 2011.

the things that enter my mind

…perhaps breath is our closest thing to ‘home’ and even that, fades, leaving us to dissipate, separate our body from our mind from our soul. and where then, is home? dear mother.
