Night in Ink Sweat & Tears

Charles Christian has kindly selected a new Gwilym Williams' poem for the Ink, Sweat & Tears page dated 28th December 2009.

The poem 'Night' sees out the old, where supermarket trolleys rust, and brings in the new, where snails climb blades of grass.

Happy New Year and blessings to all those bards, poets and writers, many at great peril and risk, who suffer to broaden our minds and widen our horizons and good wishes to all their devoted readers around the world.

In 2010 may the pen be mightier than the sword!

  1. congrats Gwilym and a peaceful new year

  2. My sentiments exactly Gwilym. I gave a couple of your poems an airing today at my poetry reading group. Genteel Messages and On reading RS Thomas (I particularly like that one as Iago is one of my favourite poetic characters, irritating though he can be)
    A Very Happy New Year to you and success to Twenty Ten.

  3. Congrats. Liked the curious hedgehogs especially.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Congratulations, Do you know the American painter albert Pinkham Ryder likened the creative process to
    Being " as if one were a caterpillar at the end of a blade of grass feeling in the air"?

  5. How much time it has been...May be in October....
    You deserve this coming back...who provided so much ...for soul and mind...
    I hope you are fine..
    And ofcourse...
    I greet You and all the Followers In the New Year, for better times, health, ideas, study, solutions, enrichment, poetry and love....
    Somehow add me to your mail list...i am not only lazy but also poor at that....
    And certainly, i would be back....

  6. Weaver, thank you for reading my poems at your reading group.
    John, an inspirational haiku year to you.
    Dominic, I hope all the hedgehogs are enjoying their winter rest - their little hearts beating only 5 times a minute.
    Saprker, Thanks for that deeply illuminating quote. Perhaps considering take off, and yet still a caterpillar!
    Satyapal, Always enjoy your comments and the nice things you say. I shall try to add you! Having the quality of 'lazy' we are apt to forget.

  7. Satyapal, I have tried to go to your page but you have not opened your profile so I have failed to make the connection. Gwilym
