Poem of the Week: Memories of Wexford

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.

If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.

The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “Memories of Wexford”.

And now for this week’s poem:

Memories of Wexford

Morning light soft over grey grasses
where the otters have lain.
The gentle glisten of dewlight
ornamenting the spider’s domain.
The skylark rising up from the saltmarsh.
The spring mist turning to rain.
