Best Poem of William Messent

Oystercatchers

The gulled sky shrieks above a mournful sea;
In the grey austerity, the wind moans.

Like candyfloss, spun by the waves,
The spindrift balloons above the billows.

Stunted, tenebrous trees claw at the waves
Which gargle and gurgle through time-worn stones.

Bladderwracked rocks peep from the Stygian depths,
Then disappear below the breathing tide.

The brittle reek of iodine and kelp
Pervades this melancholic atmosphere.

Flashing white "V"s, screaming over the waves,
Suddenly a flight of oystercatchers
With their insistent ...

Music In The Air

When life seems tough and full of care
And things go wrong at every turn,
Reach out, there's music in the air.

As Elgar said, it's everywhere,
This melody for which I yearn
When life seems tough and full of care.

Be silent, still, and yet aware
