Faoi Anáil Davitt

 

 

Tamall sular cailleadh é

Bhí Eckhart Tolle á léamh

Ag Michael Davitt –

É ag iarraidh teacht ar an ‘Anois’ sin. Anois!

 

Anois?

 

Bhíos-sa á ghríosú:

Anois! Díreach é!

(Bhí nuachtán ann, Anois,

Mé féin a scrígh a leath de

Seachtain i ndiaidh seachtaine

Ar phinginí pitseála –

Gaoluinn Chiarraí

Scoilt sí ár gcroí .

Ar aon nós, ní bhaineann sé sin leis an Anois áirithe seo

A raibh Michael sa tóir air).

 

Cailleadh ansin é, is é i mbéal Anois.

Anois!

 

Lig sé béic mheigiliteach as

A raibh gach Anois a bhí riamh ann inti

Is cailleadh é. Ní rabhas ann ach táim ann Anois,

Táim. Tá a anáil dheireanach ionam.

 

Braithim uaim é ach n’fheadar, hé!

Hé hé, hé,

Nach bhfuil sé faram

Anois, sea, Anois –

Is go brách.

                   Táimid ar fad faoina anáil.
