Imitations of R.S. Thomas

Imitation of The Hand

holding endless golden grains of sand
at arm’s length – my hand
sifts thoughtful each piece’s worth
feeling the elemental drums of the earth.

Imitation of The Island

alone on an island,
I build my own church
to God
and it was nothing
because I’d rather have died.
