Brigid Poetry Festival 2011

Here is my offering for this year's Poetry Festival in honour of Brigid.



To all that is brief and fragile
superficial, unstable,

To all that

lacks foundation

argument or principles;

To all that is light,

fleeting, changing, finite

To smoke spirals,

wand roses,

To sea foam

and mists of oblivion...

To all that is light in weight

for itinerants

on this transient earth

Somber, raving,

with transitory words

and vaporous bubbly wines

I toast

in breakable glasses.




~Maria Eugenia Baz Ferreira
