Space on Earth

We can see the
Beginning of Time
But we can’t find
A plane in our
Own back yard,
Such is the nature
Of our universe.

Epitaph for Grandpa Pete

Peter Merer,
Architect, sailor, spitfire

Zoom up –
SWERVE, the tropics
And dales, war to peace:
Air to sea.

He ruled
New colours and     
Shapes that could tame breezing light
Like the best
Sails and wings.
