No more war 19/05/17

A red flag flutters,

Heavy rain falls from dark skies –

Poppies on the verge.

Patience 17/05/17

Collecting raindrops,

A child on a balcony –

Clematis flowers

Big Mind

By a busy road,

A flurry of willow seeds –

Settles on the verge.

Ice lines the river,

A swan rises heavily –

Shattering silence.

24.12.16. Burial

The smell of damp earth,

Leaves turn to mulch underfoot –

Burying chestnuts.

22.12.2016 Solstice

White mist on white frost,

Waking from the longest night –

The fen takes a breath.

Past glories

White thistle-heads nod,

Solitary buttercups –

Reflected glory.

Impermanence:

Lights dance on the sea,

Sand martins leave their burrows –

Washed-up jellyfish.

Secrets:

Behind a white screen,

A song for absent parents –

May blossom, Cuckoo.

Entering the stream:

With circular wave,

A raindrop enters the stream –

Irises tremble.
