Monsters eating babies,
snakes twisting and turning,
eyes burning into me,
dreams and nightmares,
a trail of sploges and splashes,
on a trancelike journey,
church purple,viridian green,poppy red,
azure blue,banana yellow,
black dots and lines,
hieroglyphics and semaphores,
repetitious,mysterious and unchanging – primeval.
Walking with Sandra to Camley Street Nature Park,
passed huge excavations,transformations,
knots of yellow helmeted human termites,
digging,moving mountains of earth,
building more temples to Babel.
Camley Street a complete surprise,
an oasis of stillness,gentleness and quiet.
Chattering, pond-dipping children,
delighting discovering whirligig beetles,
water boatmen,pond skaters and dragon flies.
Brian Cox “Wonders of the Universe”
says we humans are made from the earth’s
molecules of air,dust,water and fire.
calcium,phosphorus and trace elements
iron,zinc,iodine,selenium and fluorine –
combustible stardust- primordial.
