to the pace
of the river
an lacha fhiáin
luas na habhann
getting bigger and bigger
agus i ag imeacht uaim
snow tonight in Derry -
sneachta ar Dhoire Cholmcille
a haiku with an echo from the past: the 5th century judgement, delivered against Colmcille (le gach boin a boinin - to every cow its calf - or to every cow its little cow) in the first copyright case ever recorded in history. The saint who was from Derry had to return the copy he had made without the writer's permission.

On nearing the surf
every footprint becomes
that of the sea
