Treasure Island

Shelagh Foster

(8 April 1959 / Cyprus)

Lucky


From a lifetime of layers
of life on the tide,
to sweetness of mouth
and sweetness inside;
beyond all my hopes,
beyond depth
beyond wide,
I am lucky

To gratitude, passion,
From promise and dreams;
life’s not what I’d hoped
and not what it seems.
But as the plans of the gods
unfold in reams.
I am lucky

Intimate, obvious,
clear and distilled;
from eons of empty
to love I am filled.
Recharged
and released,
I didn’t know I was willed
to be lucky

Deep in the centre
of all that I know,
life takes away
and life has its flow.
I open my eyes
and in yours I know
I am lucky

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
