the inner citadel

dec-19 | #corbenic #poetrypath #dunkeld #perthshire
mid-winter, late-afternoon, walking the path

“eventually all of us
should adventure
down into ourselves
when the living and loving
has quietened
we should take the journey
into the dark interior
down, down, down
past Aladdin’s cave
and the vivid stars
to find the core
the inner citadel
it is always there, in everyone

Margaret Gillies Brown, Of Rowans and Pearl, Argyll Publishing 2000
