Wales again tomorrow
Away from home, yet home.
A place of joy and sadness. Warm memories, gentle pleasures and quiet loss.
I will walk the rugged clifftops in the salt wind, the moody sea constant at my shoulder, Ireland an imagined shadow on the far horizon.
I will feel the cooler air on my face, see the turning of leaves, watch Autumn settle like fire in woods and valleys.
I will enjoy the sun and the rain, seasons changing in a day.
I will hear the lilt of history, change and hope in the returning language.
I will write wildly, poor connection leaving me less distracted.
I will sleep longer, the dark flowing river a silent lullaby.
I will miss you.
And all the things that are, that were, and that will never be.
