Montefiore – a poem by Terrence Sykes


Beneath a copper moon
letterings of a multitude
shadowed scripts
cast pronunciation
across the face of staved land

Mosaic reflections reveal
alphabet of light
spelling its unreadable words
forgotten language
upon the surface of the water

Dawn – vaporish as it clings
last syllables of night
consonant reminder
whispering silent vowels
In the beginning was the word

Terrence Sykes was born and raised in the rural coal mining area of Virginia. This isolation brings the theme of remembrance to his creations, whether real or imagined. His poetry – photography – flash fiction has been published in India, Mauritius,Scotland, Spain and the USA.
