ARCHED (Part 7)

Stone
Cast in,
Rippling
Time’s pool.

Outwards
And inwards,
A settled pattern
Of comings and goings.

And the weight
Of the stone:
An anchor, a haven.
Small, still island
In a restless sea.

A forest for song.
A forest for silence.
A carpenter’s house,
A house of edge and curve.
A mother’s house,
A house of succour,
Of promises kept,
Of warm dark.

FLUX AND FLAME
( for Master Jewellers, Jesa and Al Marshall
on their 10th year in business)

Gold and silver:
The softness there
Of sun and moonlight.
No use
But to adorn time
In timeless glow.

The most valued
Of things
Of no use
But beauty
Itself.

Heart’s desire:
Only
To possess
And to be possessed
Of beauty.

Folded starlight
Folded suns
Burnished
Offered
To adorn
Our dust.

The world made new,
Made glorious
By each small thing.

One moment
Of beauty
Vanquishes
The darkest day.

This body,
This world:
A gift
From a
Million suns.
