the waiting

grey light upon sleeping fields
the stillness i have come to love
time and tide cease surcease
peace sits like a glove
shadow sifts like memory

the dog stirs at the chain
and whines and lifts his eyes
for the walk he knows we'll take
though storm clouds steal the skies
and grey light curtains into rain
so waits the world tonight
in darkness and in pain
the world waits for christ

Dear Sir,

After being an avid reader of for quite some time, I suddenly find myself straying away from that site in favor of yours. Brian Byrne used to be a great one for littering his blog with various photos and stories of Kilcullen past, present and future, but now he appears to be on some sort of walk about in Thailand, Vietnam and Rio as of most recent. Until Mr Byrne makes his way back to the Emerald Isle, I find I have no choice but to read your blog.

If my late Uncle Ken was alive today he'd say, "For Christ sake James don't be afraid to give oul Byrno a run for his money and make the Heelers Diaries the new Kilcullen Bridge." In the end Byrno can only blame it on Rio if his former readers such as myself depart from his blog for the green pastures oh yours.

All the best, Scrapper

Are you familiar with Romans 8 in the Bible? It's a bit cryptic as Scripture often is, but it speaks of creation itself groaning under its bondage to decay. It waits for Christ's return and restoration to its original perfection.
