Description:
There is a myth that anyone spending the night on the Welsh mountain Cader Idris is next day a poet (bard) or mad. Maybe both, of course. I wanted to spend a night on a mountain and this was a fairly accessible one with a stone shelter on top. I spent the night there. Two or three years later, there was a competition at work to write a poem on a Halloween (ghostly) theme. I wrote this poem and it won. I then found myself writing other poems. So the myth worked, but in an unexpected way!

Spirit Mountain
SPIRIT MOUNTAIN

Said to be haunted
Source of strength and madness
Alone on the night mountain
I wait, curious.

Screeches and groans
Tear the night, only I
Know theyre ravens
Not demons.

Harbour lights, town lights, wandering
Headlights shine and
Are gloved into mist

Pale flame of sunrise
Seascape afire
Ghosts? Then within us

But a trickle of
Welsh blood speaking:
Perhaps in the soil
Out of time, sleeping.
