Hiraeth – a Welsh word meaning longing for home.


Hiraeth is in my bones.
My tide of longing
For that far star
That shines so faithfully
In my night sky,
Its hard brilliance a beckoning,
Far-heard call
Over the night-waves
Of my breathing, sighing sleep.

My bones quietly disintegrate.
I return to essence,
And find the one tiny particle of self
Amid star-sand.
