Reading at the Woman’s Art Association

 

Last Friday, the 11th of the 11th month, I took part in an event for the Woman’s Art Association Wales.

I read a number of poems for members of the association, and members of the public, who had gathered together to enjoy art and conversation.

Above is a chapbook that I produced for the event, and I include one of the poems that I read below. It is about my wonderful Mother.

Much love Txx

Goddess:  My mother, who dreams vividly at night.  

She runs         

like a goddess

over night time

rocks
wailing and

wailing

things like
“leave Leroy

alone!”

She wakes

with smile

childlike giggle

***

What else
Does she

who bore 7

do at night?
between mundane

dreams:

What landscape

travelling

wild hair

dirty boots.
Freedom

at night away

***

children who parent

her. Mother who left

yet is here again

beside her
Old age  

is a uniter.
