As part of the RS Thomas Poetry Appreciation Group we have been asked to write a poem in response to one of his … this is my first attempt which I posted to the group today … you can find his poem on the Intranet … it’s a beautiful read.
There is a wakefulness that is not bound by the margins of sleep; an awareness that is constant and alive. Alive to all there is in the infinity and eternity of being. We could not bear it. Only One who has borne our weakness and broken our chains hears and listens, watches and sees, across the ocean that separates and calls us home.
