In all our sanctuaries we sit at risk

I Send Greetings from this Place


Image result for st aldhelm's chapel


I send greetings from this place

to my neighbours across the water

I bid them welcome to my mind

I bid them welcome to our future


and I grieve that in the present

some people on this small island

have been bewildered and ill-led

into thinking water can be wall


and a little and invented “we”

can be a separate, better home

than true connection, I to thee,

each frail on a cliff-edge, sharing the sea.
