The Sacrament of Music - A Selection of Poetry by Paul du Plessis Updates

Prayer Walk

Feet crunch cracked mud uphill
Breaking a twig underfoot
While passengers take their pews
In the train speeding northwards
As the silence of stillness interrupts
The regular rattle of rail-track
Echoing emptiness.

Arms swing militarily to cross the heart
