The Heart’s Own Days


Memory’s shelves are stacked

I’m ready

Stone, blade, branch, colour in store

Sky, hill, dune, dale, sea-shore

Notated and filed in serial

Fingertips full of material

Systematic, erratic

But ready

To make again

Places of necessity


With eyes quite shut

I open them wide

See time in time past me glide

Now assembled for my gaze

The heart’s own days

"Stuart can speak volumes in one line where others make one line into a volume." Strait Newspaper Review of 'Love and Let live'

Comments on a recent video:

'Don't think I realised just how good you are, that was brilliant.'

'I love it. Still a huge talent. Thanks for sharing.'

Stuart's response - 'Aw schucks'

An online archive of poetry, the 'marmite of literature', provokes strong passions and prejudice. Many inhabit a wasteland of indifference to it. What are your thoughts?
