New Year 2018

Pier banner

This year
May we risk believing
That old bruised fruit
Can grow new skin
That the tables in our temples
Can be overturned
Dust shaken from rugs
Threadbare and worn
Their colour renewed
That the fragile pier of faith
Which juts into the sea
Will hold up when we walk
On turbulent waters
Its rotten wood
Lovingly
Excised and restored.
