Tom Žorgautr


i’ve found that with my breath held

and eyes focused in utmost meditation

the clock will stare back with amusement

and slow his heartbeat hands by a quiver


one day i’ll master this frantic mind

eat right and sleep well, keep vices in check

and gathering all of those skittering thoughts

like unwoven threads on an unflown flag



Žorgautr.jpgTom Žorgautr lives in Wales.  Most of his life he has been scribbling his thoughts down and in recent years they have taken the shape of poems. Every few days he is  inspired enough to grab a notepad and pen and either climb a hill to escape the mist, or sit on the harbour wall to wallow in the thick of it.
