Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea. Photos and Poetry 9
I am using this weeks challenge as a perfect excuse for me to pay a tribute to the wonderful poet Seamus Heaney who sadly died too soon on the 30th August 2013. He will indeed be much missed.
LOVERS ON ARAN
The timeless waves, bright sifting, broken glass,
Came dazzling around, in the rocks,
Came glinting, sifting from the Americas
To possess Aran. Or did Aran rush
To throw wide arms of rock around a tide
That yielded with an ebb, with a soft crash?
Did sea define the land or the land the sea?
Each drew new meaning from the waves’ collision.
Sea broke on land to full identity.
Though, of course, this is not a photo of Aran, so I am indeed using poetic license!
