21st January 2019


December morning
the old lace shawl
draping my shoulders




20th January 2019

kingfishers...
 a stillness between
their coming and going




19th January 2019

lost in thought
I stray into the way
of butterflies


18th January 2019

popcorn sky...
the closer we get
the further they go



17th January 2019

ice breaker
an old salt breathes warmth
into his hands





16th January 2019

rosy dawn
colouring in 
each flower and leaf




15th January 2109 

beggar's tatami
only chopsticks
in his rice bowl



14th January 2019

sundown...
low flying pelicans
home to roost



13th January 2019

cooling air
the shadowed grass
a little sweeter



12th January 2019

last light
all that remains
is the little I've learned


11th January 2019

beach cafe
words rain down to a 
puddle of sunshine



10th January 2019

apricot blossom
the blush of spring
on a young girl's cheeks


9th January 2019

nightfall
unfazed by the parting
a heron and his shadow




8th January 2019

tangerine sky...
a song of praise
from a solitary bird



7th January 2019

arctic winds
five crows huddle
on a white roof


6th January 2019

hospice...
for a single moment
she returns my smile

5th January 2019

morning haze...
heart racing I hover
on the edge of a haiku


 4th January 2109

a new day
another shard of colour
lights in my life






3rd January 2019

barefoot
on glowing embers
come firewalk with me


2nd January 2019

beginning over...
a small beacon
along the way


1st January 2019

starless night
the scent of camellias
leads me to you


31st December 2018

setting out beyond the hills a new year dawns



30th December 2018

deep into winter...
the remembered scent
of lemongrass


29th December 2018

robin song...
between the rows a blackbird
stretches a worm


28th December 2018

empty sky...,
the dog and I 
starved of birdsong


27th December 2018

on the far side
of early morning silence
a gathering of crows



26th December 2018

awakening
in the call of wild geese
tatters of my dream


25th December 2018

fourth Christmas
he tells me his dream 
of sleigh bells




24th December 2018

eve of  Christmas
his nearest and dearest
home to roost


23rd December 2018

moonrise...
a nightingale serenade
for the crying child
