Letters Home (I)

It is a recognition
That shape of the mountain
Against an open sky
Clearer than ice
Where the snow lies still
Against the February blue
Of the sun.

I stand, and gaze
At the folds of the sea
Where it spreads its curve up
To the horizon.

Blindfold, I come
To my land
Senseless, deprived
Until my eyes meet this sky.

Irene Noel-Baker (2009-12)
