Walking into Eternity

On Whitby beach¬† –¬† Late in December

12 Walking into Eternity
Walking into Eternity was the title of my first poetry book.
That book is no longer available.

So I thought I would paint this picture, based on an image on the cover, in order to be able to hang it on my wall as a reminder!!

(The original image was a photograph by Dan Lyons

11 Windswept

Well rugged up
against the wind,
ever present
on this shore,

I breathe deep
of air cleansed
by the sea,

take it into my lungs,
allow it to repair
some of the damage
caused by years of smoking.

Perhaps repair
is an illusion,
but nonetheless
I will feel better
when I return indoors.
