The “renewal” of Britannia has been going on for a very long time now. Some of the events of the last six years can be traced here.

Poem: Descent

February 7, 2022


The rustic lane unwinds

its way from the mountain

like a lover leaving her man

after a lingering entwining kiss;


a solitary clump of bluebells

reflects aquamarine raindrops

on the hood of the passing car

like mirrors round as hazelnuts in the mist;


and as I ignore the windowed beauty

the weekend ending burns into my soul

leaving me wondering if, once I’m gone,

she’ll remember me with a cheer or a hiss.
