Taliesin’s Feast Day

For Taliesin Radiant Brow, the great Bard of Wales on his Feast Day:


Bright-Browed, Wave-Bourne


One can float so long in the darkness

rocked softly, rocked violently,

in wet leather,

tanged with salt until

and at some point

a light rises

washing up as if from

some unknown abyss;

And snagged from fishing trap

you are exposed

into a new life

where wisdom and force

course through through your veins

and leap from your tongue

in flashes of poetic fire and prophecy!
