Waiting for spring

Waiting for spring

deep hibernation

breath freezes outside blanket

slow rhythmic breathing

wondering whether 

cup of tea will make itself

stare into darkness

The Horizon

Unattainable aspiration, reachable only by others.Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The goal

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

The thin veil

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

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

The toothache

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

Petrol panic

Petrol panic, gullible queue thirty minutes for a thimblefulFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Golden nature, lasting beauty,

The flower

Hues of pink on pale green stem,

fleeting beauty, unnatural purpose.Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

the first cup

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

wild night of fearful darkness

wild night of fearful darkness

wild night of fearful darkness

leaves chased freely by the wind

a tree fallsFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
