Baffled Hope

First Day New Team

3.September 2019


My illuminated watercolour of St Patrick had fallen overnight, intact but a broken frame) 


Triple change


Tentative courage

Baffled hope


Broken illumination

Essence kept

Glass shard

Frame burst


Light in darkness

Time frame worn






Greyness peached

Humorous ripples


A sapling

Needs time

Attentive, caring love

To grow, bear fruit
