Brigid in Cyberspace Poetry Reading: 'Day Dream' by ASJ Tessimond

I'm posting a day early as I will be out all day tomorrow at an Imbolc event celebrating Brigid. Happy Imbolc/Brigid/Candlemas/Groundhog Day everyone!

Day Dream

One day people will touch and talk perhaps
And loving be natural as breathing and warm as
And people will untie themselves, as string is unknotted,
Unfold and yawn and stretch and spread their fingers,
Unfurl, uncurl like seaweed returned to the sea,
And work will be simple and swift
as a seagull flying,
And play will be casual and quiet
as a seagull settling,
And the clocks will stop, and no one will wonder
or care or notice,
And people will smile without reason,
Even in winter, even in the rain.

ASJ Tessimond

thankyou also...for your poem. 'even in the winter...even in the rain' connects me with the feeling I sometimes get in when in London/this city of battling with the elements rather than befriending them. Though I must say sometimes diffcult with umbrella rage at rush hour!
Happy Birthday Brigid...'even' in London I have felt Spring.
