Nat Hall
Sandwick, Shetland
2003

What is time?
The clock of God
Pinned in the curtain
Of the night (?)

What is thyme?
The scent of loss -
Like memories shelved in
The corner of my mind...

What is NOT mine?
The sound of floods -
A thousand tears I could not
Shed in the twilight...

...And what is light?
The smile of God,
A sense of hope - a thousand
Suns beyond the night.
