Finally, after nearly two years, the Bealtaine Writers met face to face in their original home, The Irish Writers Centre on 21st October last. It was marvellous to be back and we were warmly welcomed by IWC staff. I wrote this specially for the day. Read, enjoy, comment, give feedback, pass it on.

the venerables

refuse to head

into winter sleep

 

au contraire

they emerge from

cosseted lairs

 

gravitate by

bus train foot

to city north

 

for a moment

gaze back

towards their cocoon

 

not too late

to revert

into locked known

 

but no - falter

forward - shuffle

up the square

 

stand before a

georgian splendour

 

on one more push

ascend granite steps
