St Faith's Church, which featured in my previous post, and whose earliest parts go back to the eleventh century.
The whole area feels old, especially the path where I stood to take the photo, although it was not my 'time out of time' spot. That lies further to the right, and would not have given such a picture postcard view of the scene had I stood on it.
There is no connection between this illustration and the lines I'm inserting next - I simply thought it was a pretty picture to share with you. From here on, I'm going back to the subject of clarity, or not, of much of the writing on offer in Blogland...
Words behind a veil of mist
swirl in vague allusion
as comprehension hides beneath
illusion of intelligence.
What purpose does this serve?
Beyond Confusion's urge
to cloak a poet's dreams
with a secret manifesto, lies
a creed whose images could birth
an undisputed presence
in the world of fact not fiction,
were they but given clarity of truth.
