I sit here jivin

I sit here jivin’ in chair

the world is in front of me,
go where I please
cap sits comfortably
autumn falls outside

I am alone the girls have gone out

Autumn

Autumn has well and truly arrived. The lawn is green with a mottled brown counterpane of fallen leaves.

Rain falls gently as I gather the last of the greenhouse tomatoes and carry them to the house in the fold of

I mountain

I mountain constant noise,
Stream dances, rivulet in a hurry
Random butterfly fluttersby,
Doesn’t wait for me
Sheep scampers over
Breeze bent grasses
Lichen rock scattered stones
Breathtaking measures pace
Relax and stare
Clouds sleep

Awake in bed

I lie awake in the darkness, listening.
The constant rhythmic flow of my breathing.
Still alive.
No traffic noise.
Anne stirs and gets up.
She doesn’t realise I am awake.
Feels odd without her there.
No touching of bodies, no …

Flight to the Isle of Man

UK is covered in cloud.

2 worlds

Above the cloud

Below the cloud

We are descending

Gradually approaching the cloud

What lies below?

 

Frozen Arctic wasteland

Ordinary people leading ordinary lives

Is such a thing possible?

whisky bottle full

whisky bottle empty

Whisky glass, once full now almost empty, sits there in front of me on the kitchen table. There is no music. Only my thoughts. Thoughts of nothing in particular. No memories. Only a sense of being. Warmth.

Today I bought

some crumpet

Today I bought some crumpet, rhymes with trumpet
I like a bit of crumpet, me
Almost too hot to hold and dripping with butter
To be eaten quickly so you can move on to the next one.

rain dances

noise thunders

The rain dances overhead as daylight moves out of sight to the West. Noise thunders. Dead leaves litter the garden. Wind rocks the branches of trees. I am inside, warm and glad.

output gastronomic

Up I am and dressed, two vests for winter,
Heating engaged, the house feels warm.

The gentlest of Saturdays, a visit to Waitrose
Leeks, carrots, lamb, tomorrow a prospect.

Creative juice transformed, output gastronomic,
Post indulgent slumber on sofa.

The captivation of the slow dancing piano and other musical terminologies

La Musique

The mellowest of saxophony
The soul of the trumpet
The romance of the plucked guitar
The captivation of the slow dancing piano
The birdsong of twilight
The relaxation of rain
The silence of the lone singer
The hypnosis

The fire lighting

story of success,

paper scrunching, twig snapping match striking

flames consume

coal engulfed settles into long decline

room warms up and the fire dies

A Tribute to Fergie

A tribute to Fergie

Nowadays its a very sad time,
No more will we see Fergie, on the touch line,
The great man from Govan, is no longer the boss,
For the world of football, what a great loss

Mrs T

What a wonderful woman, was our Mrs T
An iconic leader in our history
She was on everyone’s invite, top of the list
This woman that led with a big iron fist

In Brighton the IRA, they tried …
