The castle fell.
Roads came live
Clocks and bells ran humming
Familiar faces eyed up children as a meal.
Dark enduring visions came from wishing:
Youth spluttering poised for morning chores.

The castle fell
Wells dried up. Hands went shaking
Shadows crept and night arrived
Faces lost their name, children snatched in barter.

Then came daylight institution.
Found ourselves approaching terror.
Terror of beatitude.
Then false created horror, fear from clay, wealth from wild imagination.
No more terror unapparent, just long night, childhood meals and daily chores in hellish cause.

No more!
Renunciation of the petty whims
Adoration of sky and clouds
Advocation of embrace.
Such is the shared route.
On stormy winter earth, splitting sand in diamond necklace world.

Going "traditional" by capping each line is a work of art in this particular poem. Now why do I think you're a genius? Read this part out loud and you'll agree:

"...Then false created horror, fear from clay, wealth from wild imagination.
No more terror unapparent,..."

See what I mean?

You speak a language all your own, Oisin. Powerful and evocative. Lucid and leading into thought.

Reviewed by Susan de Vegter 4/9/2003
I hope everyone here knows that you are a wordsmith and a storyteller. The New Age Christenson my friend. You pain life in romantic tones and then uncover souls that have been mundane for years. You have beauty in your fingers and I'm so fortunate to have you as a good friend.

Benisons Oisin,
