Sideways

The mirror restores

the images we see

back from left to right.

– Or perhaps that’s right to left?

I wonder if there’s an axis in the middle?

Whatever.

It never switches up to down,

(or down to up for that matter)

even if you turn the mirror sideways.

It’s probably all gravity and stuff

that keeps some semblance

of normality on our world.

What’s up goes up,

what’s down stays down,

and so on.

It could be the other way around

of course,

– or maybe it’s all

just a little sideways.

Ray Mullen – Award Winning Poet and United Arts Club Member

Barefoot

 

I’ve a pair of sturdy old boots

that nearly have the creak gone out of them,

steel-toed rostra that might have sat

at the stage edge waiting for a spool

to wind or a leaf to fall.

 

I am troubled by autumnal words

swirling  falsly,

strewn hither and thither by the cracked winds

of eyeless Vallombrosa.

 

There is a morning chill; little comfort

before the day begins or ends.

 

It is death who follows with bare feet,

lightly crossing the red stained tiles

in fear my boots would crush her brittle toes.

Selma McCormack Artist and United Arts Club member

Selma McCormack lives and works between Spiddal and Dublin. Selma studied painting and sculpture part time for many years before starting to exhibit her work in the late 1980’s.

Originally her sculpture consisted of clay and wax modelling and she later exhibited bronze casts of her work. Generally figurative in subject matter, she continues to produce works in bronze, and occasionally in ceramics – especially of the figure in motion and of animal studies.

Selma followed her early success in sculpture by developing her own distinctive painting style from the early 1990’s. Her influences include Robert Motherwell, Patrick Heron and Nicholas de Staël among others.

Her time is divided between the two disciplines of painting and sculpture. She approaches each with equal enthusiasm.
