2 POEMS "RESCUED" FROM THE 90's

PHOTOGRAPH OF ANGELA - CIRCA 1972 One hand caught in sunlight the other hidden in her lap in the shade strokes a black cat. * TRAVELS OF THE HEART "Give me a ship & you can take all the houses in the world." ST. IVES. VENEZIA. ECHUCA. Wallis's "Blue Ship" on a postcard sailed. Franco sent Gondolas covered in snow from the canals of VENEZIA. Catherine sent Paddle-Steamers from The Murray River - "The Adelaide" & "The Pevensey" - moored at ECHUCA. Wallis started painting ships at 70 for just 17 years - i sailed out on his "Blue Ship" from ST. IVES. * Re-wrtten @ 4 in the morning - Golden GOJI Hermitage - Tuesday, the 28th of August, 2012. bernard hemensley. *

A good time had by one and all...On The Road To Abbotsbury...Thought of that other B.H. - On The Road To Morrocco. Ha, ha, ha... OH! - at the beginning of my trip, i directed 2 cyclists in Weymouth to the Chickerell Road...they were going to Lyme Regis!...i pass them on bus, and they return my wave, from upstairs back-of-bus... well along the Chickerell Road. Waiting for bus back to Weymouth, from Abbotsbury bus stop, i suddenly realise, that the 2 girls having refreshments at The Swan pub, are same 2 cyclists. i cross the road to chat, and they say they are content  to have made such good time. No big climb out of Abbotsbury towards West Bay for them however...but along the beach to West Bexington, after Sub-tropical Gardens... i wished i were going with them... *

i think of the little notebook made for me with the black- cloth binding & the japanese patterned-paper with cherry-blossoms  & an outline of Mt. Fuji & it's raining. i am watching a japanese film dreaming in & out of it as i think of the little notebook in this quiet house this evening but for a girl who sings that Beatles song. & i will write the words of this poem in that book for it is to be useful & practical & "not a precious thing" - but it is to me it is to me & it is snowing & it is snowing... *

Early to bed etcetera, really does work best for me. Up at  3 a.m. - with bread to make - but really too early. 4 a.m. - on phone, talking to elder brother in Melbourne, while i  eat strawberries. 5a.m. - out around Goldcroft with  camera - still very dark. Wanted mist and fog, for photos  of Radipole Lake, but shot what was. Up and down  on mountain-bike. At 6 a.m. - on here, blogging.... 6.24  a.m. - about to "publish"....etcetera, etcetera....yoga,  zazen, bread, farmer's market...infinite choice...never a  dull moment ?...Well! - sometimes!Think of song by THE KILLERS. For now - andiamo, a bientot, see ya later...X
