THE LONGEST ROAD OUT IS THE SHORTEST ROAD HOME

~ Irish Proverb~


 

IRISH CLIFFS OF MOHR

 

Shifting from a surface firm, plunging towards the depths

Down the jagged, shearing cliffs, ocean weaves had leapt

Drenched by salt of icy seas, music in the roar

Salutations traveler, welcome to this shore

 

Watchers hide in rugged cliffs

As the winds and fog would drift

Have you seen those ancient eyes

Timeworn in primordial guise

 

If you listen, would they speak

From their heights of rugged peak

Might their language be the old

Could it warm a heart grown cold

 

Answer questions never asked

Always first and always last

Souls see all, yet never roam

Salty whispers...welcome home

 

Taim i'ngra leat

 

FYF

A

 

(If you look, you just might find faces in the cliffs)

Beautiful write. I am going to Ireland in Sept. although my heart has already been there for many years.

Enchanting write. I wish I might yet see the Irish lands. A friend of mine was there, and brought me a small slate shard from these cliffs. (I am sure it is not smething that is recommended, but it meant a great deal to me.)
Reviewed by Patrick McCormick 3/10/2005
Well done. I have been there and they are magnificent. When I took my eldest daughter back to Ireland for her first trip there she was very impressed with these cliffs. What little Gaelic I had when growing up in County Down has unfortunately faded and I was not able to translate your last line.

Note to myself: CALM DOWN! sigh, Anita, I've been to the cliffs! Scrolling down slowly here, your pic came upon me and I responded audibly.

To define them is not necessary and not possible... they are illusive, powerful, and windy. But how could anyone, especially a masterful poet like yourself, not have a need to express the feelings they evoke? Your poem flew to my gut... which is where the memories of this place reside... and this is a fine and true tribute to them.

katy xox. p.s. May I ask that you find Cliffs of Mohr, my poem in my archives... ? I'd love for you to read it. I was in Ireland in 2001. Thanks.

Yes, you're right. I can see faces in the rocks. Amazing.

Goodness me! It's way too early to set my feet a'tapping and me hips a jigging, but you done it! Just love this - you've captured the spirit of the place just perfectly! Especially the grey cold and the green! But it's beauty, warmth of personality and hospitality are unsurpassed. Welcome home! LOL Kate xx

I had top laugh aloud at the last line of the first stanza: "Salutations traveler, welcome to this shore" This after explaining about the rugged cliffs and ice salt water and, well, I suppose if you made it ashore that would be welcome enough. What formadible cliffs, indeed. The poem was a delight to read and I could almost taste that cold, salty water spray. Good.
