Who is on the plum tree?
One of the poems I will be performing at a poetry recital in Athlone, Ireland ~ by skype, hopefully, from London. Thank you to Jamie Dedes from the Bardo Group for posting it.
AM I Fractured? By Niamh Clune
Am I fractured, when in the wrath of sunlight streaming ‘cross this sky,
I cloak myself in darkness
cool and safe?
Am I fractured if Colour speaks of secrets more ancient than this sun –
of a time before beginning,
when all was yet unformed, inherent,
ready to burst upon this Blue?
Am I fractured when I feel into tacit –
To probe thoughts never heard,
dreams never shared,
tears never shed?
Am I fractured if I return to Creation’s womb
to the fiery, Colour salamanders
that spark and illuminate my inner Heavens.
Am I mad for seeing into that other realm?
Then, so be it.
Far more beautiful is that Sun.
Where I unchain my weary spirit from this violent dawning.
