Playing | in echo | in rest
Implying | in breath | in pace
Adjusting | in chord | in course
Nearing | in scale | in change
Offering | in run | in voice

 

 

monday arrived in uncertain terms, the familiar walk, leaving and arriving displaced but as always, delivering, reconciling, informing. a week when he questioned all about all, you understand, nothing is straightforward is it. one moment he would be sat playing at his piano, the next running away. there has been time to pause but underlying those actions he knew what counted was what is being played out in front of him. yes, you know that which he is unable to catch. but despite knowing this he plays with the vigor assigned to a melody in reach but yet so far, so far away

he’ll take a bow

not even once
did he look
to check
but

he’s emotional
he’s welsh
he’s allowed

it’s a marathon
and
welsh

strengths, weaknesses

weakness, strength

port
new

those

last
miles
the ALL important
he recognised
as runners
glided
by

his

broken

to 17/18/19
it had all been
a concentrated
breeze
tarmac focusing
eyes welled
by crowds
falling
falling
tears

you don’t
really know
just why
but THEY
just are
pulled deep
deep
within
and cried

the running
on strong
on song
knee left
slowly
slowly
pain
increasing
