Visions From An Irish Dream

This was a time when I felt strangely drawn to the Irish culture. If it could be possible, I would think I’d been Irish before. It’s a strange yearning I always felt whenever I closed my eyes to the winds.

I was back again;
that unmistakable fragrance of
distant mountains
surrounds me –
a mother embraces
her child.

The winds beckon
and I run
to imaginary
of pounding hooves.

Almost there now
they whispered,
he has returned.
Strains of uilleann pipes
this homelorn
