Port Welshpool Pier

by James Walton (follow)
This jelly fish bobs
caught in thought between post and tide,
longest jetty in the southern hemisphere
made in wood too hard to repair,
great clinging stick insect of chastened hope
antennae adjusted for wavelength.
Splintery back has sewn into so many feet
those little remembrances of ice age survivors,
released slivers of forest cipher
acupuncture before it was known.
The needlework of forgotten summers
stretches above messaging ebbs,

holds to the ancient landway
where Gondwana waved away the isle.
