Bridie is on her way to prayer,
past the purple bells that grace the wall,
they will not be still
raising their arms up to the breeze
that blows in from the mountain.

I love this, and I don’t know why it is except for the strong visual imagery that comes through. I can picture it so clearly it’s as if I’m watching a movie reel unfolding – so evocative.
Bridie is companion to this poem, http://poethead.wordpress.com/2008/08/16/a-saturday-woman-poet/ , which was published in Crannóg last year.
