Waiting for spring

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

deep hibernation
breath freezes outside blanket
slow rhythmic breathing

wondering whether
cup of tea will make itself
stare into darkness

The Horizon

Monday, April 9th, 2012

Unattainable aspiration, reachable only by others.

The goal

Saturday, April 7th, 2012

The goal scored, to where shall I run?
Confused chicken looks for approval.

The thin veil

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Petrol runs dry,
Country grinds quickly to a desperate halt,
Troops out.

The thin veil of civilisation,
Grab, rip, tear, anarchy exposed.

The toothache

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Dull, jaw ache distracts
Tongue probes,a finger picks
Trapped morsels imagined

Petrol panic

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Petrol panic, gullible queue thirty minutes for a thimbleful

Suburban skyline

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Backlit grey clouds silhouetted on a charcoal suburban  landscape


Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Golden nature, lasting beauty,

forget at the peril of your soul.

The flower

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Hues of pink on pale green stem,

fleeting beauty, unnatural purpose.

the first cup

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

I sip the first cup
carefully until cool,
swill and swallow,

wild night of fearful darkness

Friday, December 30th, 2011

wild night of fearful darkness

leaves chased freely by the wind

a tree falls

the deep twilight

Monday, June 27th, 2011

the deep twilight

the deep twilight
stillness before the night
millennium of silence
