The Devil’s Despair – 22nd June 2022

Scrabbling around in the emptiness
Finding only scraps of dust and hair
Searching for long-buried treasure
To sate the devil’s despair
Concentrating all the kindness
Praying for a new light to shine
Longing for a fuller measure
To shiver on down my spine

As any gardener knows, the vitality of a garden does not end with a harvest. It simply takes another form. Gardens do not ‘die’ in the winter but quietly prepare for another season.

James Carse, Finite and Infinite Games
