Dementia poems -1

and now
let me make a poem
that is full of light
so that I might see the world
as the gift it is
let me see the light everywhere
like the sun on the snow

and now
let me be grateful
for the pause
let me see the glorious colours
of the hidden beings
that I make visible
let me call them spirits so the poem glows


and now
let me feast on the words
that make everything real
because before we can say
what we imagine the words
must house things      the housing words
must be placed on the landscape

and now
let me play
let me make the words fall down
brick by brick      let the bricks dissolve
let the dust that flies be the singing that I call
let the singing vanish and let the world reform
so that I can see
