Robert Haigh

Mosaic

Robert Haigh is an amateur English poet, Musician and photographer.






A mind badged and barnacled
by the many vagaries of life.
Finding his own perspective
on fate's uneven hand.

A mosaic made of a thousand
broken pieces. Each fragment
relevant and valuable,
in its own intrinsic way.

Poignant relics from a past
that fashioned his future —
who he was, and who he became.
A richly embroidered life,

with a myriad experiences
and profound emotions.
From the cruel arms of war
into the loving arms of family.

At last he found
his own true north.
