St Teilo

Perhaps
sitting outside
probably always there
gazing inward at the outside
within


Backwards forwards
rocking 
fear revealed in dreams
reaching out to touch the flame
with sure knowledge of loss and regret
wonder at the pain of it.

Nothing prepares for the parting
everything there in memory
no reason to doubt
no reason to fear
no evidence to the contrary
ashen voices.
