I mountain

I mountain constant noise,
Stream dances, rivulet in a hurry
Random butterfly fluttersby,
Doesn’t wait for me
Sheep scampers over

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

whisky bottle full

whisky bottle empty

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.

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

My family home

At number fifty four

There is a house in Severn road
And it’s number fifty four
Where neighbours thought there lived ten kids
And were shocked to discover four more

There was Kath and john, me dad and mom

London couldn’t cope

London didn’t cope.

We just didn’t cope, even
though we had a warning
We’ve known for two weeks
But it went tits up this morning

The snow hit the ground
Before we awoke
It was only two hours
Before the …

Remembrance Day

Remember Remembrance Day

Wear a poppy on the 11th of November
And wear it with the greatest of pride
In glorious red it will help you remember
The unfortunate soldiers who died

Remember the bravery of these women and men…

A love poem for Coffee.

Oh dark mother, once more I suckle at your caffeinated teat.

From the bean, via steam, your emanations are all at once bitter and sweet.

With milk or alone both comforts and uplifts.

Please accept my humble thanks for your …

jug filled sits on table

soup stirs on stove top
dishwasher whirrs
sounds of tidying up in kitchen
running water
plastic pot moves slightly on drainer
out of window branches blow
hot tea warms hand
jug filled sits on table
