Things I like – Colette Nic Aodha
The following poem appeared in the 2013 Art Craftwork Higher Level and I thought it was too gorgeous to keep to myself!!
It’s the first time that I’ve read anything by this homegrown (mine – so Irish, before you all get all excited) poet, but I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for more from now on!
running my fingers along spines
ebb of music
to the beat of your heart
jazz when dreaming
landscape with birdsong
sitting in your sheltering sun
some outdoor cafe
on the cobbled streets of Madrid
lost in the history of Spain,
learning new words,
if I have any of these
I forget to eat
