RS THOMAS FEST[49491].jpg

Here's my poem which was runner up at the RS Thomas poetry festival, 2022:


In response to Countering, RS Thomas


Calling Time on Love


Now the clock has put a full

Stop on your sentence, I am

Deaf to poetry. A castaway,                                                               

No hand takes mine.  I

Heave at the hour hand, to counter-

turn it fifty years but it is stuck

at the point of your departing.



It’s I must change time: face

Forward, count the dead hours

Without you; the shipwreck

I am, the proof love has

No end on this isle, even now

You’re in so distant a land, I can

No longer read your face.


Jennifer Burkinshaw
