Swansea Bay 10k

wept
blubber
in a year where
it feels
so much has been
carried
tears
fell

2637d-01

1k away
a brother
awaiting
he’d therefore be
at 9k
in return

the swansea bay 10k
about to get
underway
and here
one in tearful
emotion
full loco

the brother
dylan
in his day
an exceptional
athlete/runner

now here
for first time witness
his own brother’s
return

as the huddle
huddled
the start
commotion
braced
the countdown
bang
and we’re off

wipe away those tears

and run

run

past 1k
and that other bevan
bellowed
to awaken
fogged horns
‘comm’on lloyd
look’n good’

through 2k
3k
4k
then the five
of halfway

don’t look
down
don’t
an inner voice
of instruction
to watch time

then

gone past
5k
down he looks
19:57
oh…!

but in strength
of feeling strong
the time implied
too quick
a gentle readjustment
reeled in
sliced
and diced
pace

6k
7k
8k
and then
the bellows of bevan
chimed again

the welsh hwyl
elasticated the final 1k

of course
a halfway math suggested
but all one cared about

going the sub 41:28 pb
of Middlesex 10k
a few weeks
prior

feeling steady
the lumens of clock
sparkled
40:20
on approach

the tears
evaporated
but the emotions
still sang
strong
hwyl

line crossed
40:38

so chapter
verse
brothers
and
this year
past

embraced
