and is not intent on arriving "

Nimue Brown

Many of you will have heard of Bandcamp, the on-line music store. Talented Druid author and poet, Nimue Brown, has cleverly utilised Bandcamps services by using it to share her beautiful poetry. Poetry has an added life when spoken and this is a great way to present and promote it. Do check out Nimue’s wonderful new collection of poetry Skyclad by listening here.

Skyclad is described as ‘a love affair with landscape, an encounter with the ancestors, a journey towards healing swirled into the tangled memory of a dream.’ Nimue’s website can be found here.

Here is a lovely example of Nimue’s work:

Wind sweeps a rain line, whiting fields,
Then darkening. Sun smears brief gold.
This too shall pass.

A history of light and shadow,
Ever the same
And never the same.
This cyclical everlasting.

And I but a fleeting gasp,
Heart open wide as the vale,
Horizon stretched and soaring high
With buzzard on rounded thermals.

Tears of clouds, soft sun lows,
This too shall pass.
~ Nimue Brown
