Ceòl mór

There’s a skirl in the wind tonight like a

bag being inflated, pipes being

cleared of dead air and the

crushed bones of old tunes, the

hint of a new song coming, wheezing about a

rumour of snow, hard times, a

reckless flirtation, silent suppers, an

empty purse, seed spent

stupidly, the scent of a

woman in heat on the

now-groaning air, the desire to

just jump, dive unbuoyed into that

invisible ocean of noise, that

frighteningly big music.

    So beautiful. Can’t be believe it’s taken me this long to follow your blog. You are certainly a master of words.

    (Also, this poem makes more sense if you don’t misread ‘skirl’ as ‘skirt’. But only slightly.)

      Lol, yes that poem might have had to go on the other blog;) And thank you for the praise! That’s kind:) x

    I wonde if the big music you refer to is the Audible Stream, Hindu refer to as Nada? Universal sound a yogic practice is to listen to it and it comes .
