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 thin veil

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

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

The toothache

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

Petrol panic

Petrol panic, gullible queue thirty minutes for a thimblefulFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Mother

Golden nature, lasting beauty,

forget at the peril of your soul.Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

The flower

Hues of pink on pale green stem,

fleeting beauty, unnatural purpose.Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

the first cup

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

wild night of fearful darkness

wild night of fearful darkness

leaves chased freely by the wind
