dark side of the moon
all the wonders yet unseen

sound and fury...
fire mountain on the verge
of release

telling the children
about the leprechaun

the star-spangled water
straightens her curls

autumn gold...
following the scent

all that
is left of summer...
driftwood

outward bound
only the breath 
of following wind

all day long
the swan and me...
a Sunday's child


 
8th September 2017

windfalls...
in the apple orchard
two staggering goats





Windfalls are fruit blown down by the wind and left to rot. They become highly intoxicating and irresistible to animals. This is a common sight where I live.

window shopping
which sparkling diamond
to choose

morning haze
from reed to reed a shimmer
of blue

sick in bed
the cough and splutter
of my neighbour's car

easing rain...
the mirrored image
of stilettos

neon on raindrops 
to light her world

end of days...
they tell her she must
let him go

at the drowning pool
a bloodied stag

Summer's end...
you and I swallow
planning out flight

brisk wind...
the measured beat
of a swan's wings
