' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' 'somewhere In Your Mind(For Ruthie) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I have wandered
around your mind

(I hope you don't mind)

invited in
by a poem

it smiled:
'Come in...come in! '

And so
here I am

having bread & butter & tea
with your Past

having a laugh
with your Present

listening intensely
to your Future sing


Picking up each
unique memory

reflecting how it
catches & holds

the light
(the delight in life)

having a good old natter
with your own good self

playing Snap!
with our synapses

tickling the old grey matter

a passing thought
& on a tangent I leave

your smile
as you tuck your hair behind your ear

and I find
myself upon

the whiteness
of this page

like Breughel's

trekking across
its vastness

leaving a trail
of clumsy footprints

made of words

leaving footsteps

somewhere in your mind.

    Being a friend of Ruthie I can really appreciate this poem for her. You have some wonderful images here and I love 'your smile, as you tuck your hair behind your ear' and the way you treck across the snow with clumsy footprints' is so original. Now I can see why Ruthie sings your praises. 10 love Karin (Report)Reply
