Breaking light


that which conceals itself,

yet is not hidden.

Without light, it reveals the birth of light.

About maskednative

I live in Ireland, in an extended cottage overlooking Waterford Estuary, privvy to constant changes of light on water, colour and movement, tides and people. I am anglo-Irish and although my initial intention was to live here for a year and a day, I am still here, a blow-in to these shores for the past fifteen years. There have been countless times when I wanted to run back to England with homesickness and relief, but for one reason or another, so far, it has not been possible. I surrender, the soul of Ireland has captured me, allowed a glimpse of the world behind the mask of everyday experiences, bringing forth a mixture of words and pictures from an ordinary everyday life, filled with ordinary everydayness that I offer as a celebration, to the creator of this truly wonderful planet.

  1. Such a puzzling poem with such deep concepts. I’ve mulled over it through a few readings now and agree it is inconceivable. And yet somehow has been conceived.

    Seen and not seen, invisible yet felt, as real as the sky above, the ground below, but too much thinking and I go in circles, best to get on with what I know. What do I know ? Nothing and everything.

    Thank you for taking the time to mull this over, your conclusion is perfect.

    Like Steven, I’ve been letting the words ring through me. And the dialogue. You’re creating a luminous place of harmonious resonance Teri ….. a beautiful birthing.
