Gayle is hosting the 5th part and last day of the special 5th anniversary celebration, starting with an interview with Anthony Desmond, including his poem ‘When Everything Real is Gone’ as a prompt to reflect and write on a belief (or what we thought was real) and how they can transform as our views and ideas change throughout our lives.
I always believed we were three bright stars,
Three sisters –
We didn’t have a brother –
Never far from our Earth mother,
An open star cluster
Until I sailed away
On foreign seas.
Now middle-aged Pleiades,
We are fading stars
And I have realised
That sisterhood is nebulous
In the stubborn constellation of Taurus.
No longer a pole star in your lives,
I’m just a white dwarf,
A faint glimmer in the night sky.
