A poem by John O Rourke


Cuilcagh on Christmas day is squat and  immovable.

Stolidly I ascend the Oggal road towards Unshago.

Near the top Surveying North-Westerly in utter silence there is meditation.

A reed quivers in the mild light.

Man is thinking reed, Quinlan,the old professor once remarked.

In lotus position there is only God.

Ben ,

elongated, and back far reaching runs out to Sligo,

Its mountain a foggy grey blue.

Two bushes-branches entwined are dancing

One a Hindu goddess reaching out

The other in awesome rapture appears to bow.
