Turn Of The Tide

Turn Of The Tide

Turn Of the Tide


We will wait for the tide to turn.

It will carry us away

wave after wave

gathering up the debris 

which surrounds us

sucking it up like so much dust

getting rid of it all,

everything going

with the flow.

We must wait for the tide to turn.

It will bring us home

leaving new things

there with us.

Bits and pieces.

Leaving them for us to find

so that we can take 

what we need


we want.

Or should we swim against the tide?

See where it takes us.

We could try.

It couldn’t be worse.

I live in north Wales. I have been writing at various points in my life since I was in my teens. My work is influenced by issues of social justice and events, places and people I has known or imagined. I am especially interested in exploring the boundaries of dream, fantasy and reality.
