This little publication arrived in the post lately, inside a poem of mine: Legend.
Dawntreader is one of the magazines published by Indio Dreams Publishing; Savitri, Reach Poetry being the other two. It's edited by Dawn Bauling, a lady I feel I know, although we've never met.
Indigo Dreams is an innovative small publisher - and guess what? - they are shortlisted for the Saboteur Awards, too.
We created a spiral of light
around the Peace Stone:
a short circular walk retracing
the ancient sign the Druids carved
on the megaliths of New Grange;
Children’s eyes reflected the sparkles at the ‘point,
and the words: peace, hope, light, life from now in granite.
For the first time in a decade,
peace descended on this fractured world
in the form of snow over Cooley and Mourne.
‘The sign of purification’, you chanted like a farewell,
before leaving for the other realm, to rest
under the unifying cover, alongside Fionn mac Cumhaill.
