Carn Lludi

what I cannot express
in a clear day in a clear time
on the side of a hill with the heather and the sky
and I am ascending along with the lark

if I extend my reach, just so
balance carefully, just so
everything in balance and yearning for the blue
blue blue of the sea meeting the sky
in a circle almost perfect

acquaintances and friends
come gather 'round we'll drink and remember and then we'll forget
chasing associations lying down
same blue sky spinning

someday we shall catch up to the memories
prove this won't you
you were always so good
in a multiplicity of worlds

shimmering perfection of hyper-reality
so bright it makes me gasp for breath
clear clear horizon
infinite it was good
what I cannot express
