Cloghane by the Ce

In Cloghane by the Ce,

Apollo rose

breast plate gleaming

low tide,

Bay of Brandon bleeding

yellow gorse illuminating,

blue butterflies

careening through space

a bit of shale

to mark the resting place

stone walls centuries old

how many tales told,

sold, bartered

rolled down the hills

of time

and a well-tuned


spun by hearthside





embers glow,

myriad colors show

stained pure as the glass


the threshold transom

*Cloghane is a small village on the north side of the Dingle Peninsula, on the Bay of Brandon in County Kerry, Ireland. The ‘Ce’ is the Irish word for wharf.
