'Time and place / as elusive as air / as solid as this ground / I stand on. / Here, where I am placed / at any one time'.
To me the power of this poem is that it seems to capture the feeling of holding all of time in one single moment. Lovely.
Funnily enough we've just walked the botanic gardens enjoying the Kowhai at their best ... A very good year for Kowhai as well this year :O)
This is beautiful and timely, just as the tuis are swooping in the flowers of the kowhai.
another lovely poem kay. I like the blend of things natural and things manmade.And the structure works very well [again].
