Just This

Christmas Day 2009

Amongst my presents from Anne was the latest volume of Brian Turner’s pomes, 'Just This'. I've always admired and enjoyed his work. The cover has a striking photograph of the Matukituki River valley. The first poem in the volume begins:

'There’s a side to beauty
that is sadness enduring'

It seems a fitting comment for the day, for the year, for existence.
