"ABBOT" PRESIDES OVER MOON FEAST - 7 to 9pm


Looking out-front over Goldcroft rooves opposite, as moon rises in sky over Radipole, i'm  eating carrot & chilli koftas in the dark with Heinz Tomato Ketchup...having already drunk  a beautiful, rosypink, Dorset cyder-moment with poet-bro' from Oz...

YOU MAY BURY "ABBOT'S" HEART HERE...

 K.H. HEADING FOR ST. CATHERINE'S

APPROACHING "KISSING GATE"

"MAY ALL BEINGS ON THIS EARTH..."
 
 
K.H., THE TIMES & HOBGOBLIN @ ILCHESTER ARMS

IT'S SO SUBLIME
DRINKING THE EVIDENCE !!!



Calligraphy card (above) found in St.Nicholas's Church. And there was some of that "Deep peace" as i sat in pew just before K.H. and i caught bus back to Weymouth -
Peace and Silence.
Christian and Buddhist (?)
Meditation and Dialogue.
We are united in all but things of negligible importance.
*
Abbotsbury easily a second home for me...just 25 minutes away by bus for : St.Catherine's, The Ilchester, The Dansel &
St. Nicholas's Church.

*  *  *
PS. On another day, maybe The Garden of Eve or The Sub-Tropical Gardens...but always St.Nicholas's Church, i think.

WE DROVE ALL NIGHT...TO GET TO YOU...for KH.

Weymouth to Heathrow, to pick-up the bruv, arriving once again, from Down Under...remembering Roy Orbison and Cyndi Lauper... we were singing, my sister and i, in her litte boy-racer car...leaving home smack on mid-night...my first ever trip to an airport - (suddenly Tracy Chapman is singing "Fast Car") - i should get out more...too many internal flights  these past 64 years...must moreso be a "figure of outward"...

BOARDING A BUS BOUND FOR BRIDPORT

 
 
Olympic flags flapping in cool breeze on Esplanade.
Birds about, as bin-men clear garbage - Friday morning.
Two bananas and bottle of mineral water in bag, together with Gary Snyder book, to browse if needs be, on the bus.
It is grey - not the colour of an Indian Summer - but beautiful like Korean Zen monks i've seen, with soft-grey-slippered- feet - young; shaven-headed; androgynous.
Rain threatens.
 
 
The passenger ahead of me in queue, ruefully remarks that, it looks like it'll rain. I hope so, i laugh. i love the rain. i love summer rain. And he is happy to agree, it seems, as we board the bus.
 
 
Just a sprinkling of passengers.
I'm pleased the young, japanese tourist gets the seat at front- upstairs, for a panoramic view.
I get my favourite spot, behind the top of the stairs - lots of space around me.
The clouds and sky seem lighter...higher. Will the morning break into blue ?...as we leave...Weymouth...
 
 
 
BAH ! Should have brought poetry not Essays - ("Back on the Fire"). But i flick thru to some haiku Mr. Snyder has quoted and they set me aglow.
