Fay Slimm






I remember that day,
a grainy twilight draining sky's colour,
strange iridescent skin
on the water and wind lifting my hair.
I remember the burst
of birds into flight from silhouette trees,
limestone luminescence
and the damp of rocks cooling my feet.
Such peace I remember 
as I waited for you and our rendezvous,
nervous, yet love grew
memories never so treasured as then.
