where i am

where i am

chalk circle
‘Chalk circle’ by Andrew Eglinton with acknowledgements

looking back a few days
it could be years
laying hold of the sky
in image a stone
cut blue across
a whiteness under
the face            noon
that points within
once i opened hours
stroked the bird that
gusts away an autumn
old i lay string around
that circle knew it
in that circle was in
that circle
now shut behind the
winds unable to break
through the fall of
leaves save something
of that moon in a flock
of cloud.

i have turned toward
a gap between the seasons
where rain and shadow
vie in sun and i am
nothing more than
my way
