Blarney Castle

~

Simply structured pavilions

garden sheds to cover and

hide the foot path

walking into the grounds

a huge fortress in the horizon.

~

Stone ledges left empty

holding imaginary floors

circular stair turrets

in the corner towers

a castle rising from

natural rock foundations.

~

Beside this, a poison garden

succulents growing in the mortar beds

empty rose cages for the season

wood, iron, fences, houses

taking on the green luster

moss and mold over an island.

~

Ancient trees

Sequoia’s arms full of ferns

a museum in the meadow

thick rooted beings

sharing a manicured, vibrant lime lawn

pillars of families and

unlike siblings below

a misty moving sky.

The Cemetery above the Stream

 ~

We find cemeteries that keep on going

the beginning of one in Roscrea led us

to a stream and

we began to crawl over more and more hills.

The Celtic crosses reach to the sky

the stones buried a perimeter of the earth there

crushed gravel paths

small plants under cracked glass

with iron covers a perfect place to be buried

but a glorious place to be alive.
