~ Alone ~

The river.
The frozen fen.
Grey eyes smoky.
The Scot, a bitter blow
to the dirty mistress;
she charms you.

The tree in winter
casts scarlet;
muddy Scot singing.

A daughter come home,
lies in the arms of
the roots.
Her breast like the day.

Swim the night thunder
and to the sea plunder
the heart.

Leap upon paradise
and half a queen.
By the river, watch the sky ~

~ White and Silver Moon ~

White and silver moon
sleeps naked.
Sun ascends the forest.
Honey dragon crystal
spreads love to heart and life

~ Sudden Night ~

Sudden night.
Near light.
Saw through glass,
silver shine
play out a wet dawn.

Air stirred....
stilled again.

Fog by the stream
from the sea
still red
from the white tide.

Name on stone.
Grey winter
fists down the green.

The moon swims air
high on the flood.

The sea comes grabbing at my feet.
It tries to pull me in.
I laugh and say "No"!

~ Be Kind to Yourself ~

Like yourself
Smile a lot
Hug a friend
Make herb tinctures
Talk to trees
Ride a motorbike
Dance in the moonlight
Run barefoot through fields
Kiss a loved one
Pick daisies
Write a poem
Climb a mountain
Go bare-back riding
Make a daisychain
Dance in the rain
Watch a thunderstorm
Drink herb teas
Wear funny hats
Paint your toenails
Sing with the wind
Be kind to a stranger
Watch a stormy sea
Be who you are
Laugh out loud
Sit in quiet, sit in peace
Be kind to yourself
Be your best friend

~ A Flame Cries to Summer ~

I stand on the wall.
A painted hat with cockles
displays a peeled sun.
A flame cries to summer,
and I seek green grace
where miracles fly.

~ Spring Flowers ~

The chiming ice
struck water
in sight of Spring flowers
where blossoms
your name.

~ Soft Rises the Sea ~

                                                                             Photo by Jac Lee

A crystal told me
the wild bedazzling life
edged the eager
snake of flames
down the moon's hollows.

The sea rose the waters of fire
and the angel led night to day
and the sun fills my eyes
and soft rises the sea.

~ Mystery in Green ~

Candles lighting bones on marble walls.
There; rich with scarlet,
their hands of backgammon
follow the mystery
in green.

~ Drinking~in Yellow ~

A lament for a summer month which ended up with 9 days of sun and 22 days of rain.

I miss the sun.
I miss its warmth upon my skin.
Eyes closed;
Drinking~in yellow.
Eyes closed;
Seeing red.
Eyes closed;
smelling hot blue.
Sun. Sun. Sun.
Miss you.

~ I Sing the Silken Morning ~

                                                                                  Photo by Mark Lee

I sing the silken morning
of light, of white, of golden tide.
under the land of violet.
Lightning and thunderstorms
sheet the hills,
rich brown and orange.
And, in the distance....
Blue mists.

~ Stone Friends ~

Feather treasures found in the grass.
Stone friends shine and smile.
Red kites fly.
Breeze kisses my skin.
Beautiful Thor's Day.

~ Diamonds in my Hair ~

A wind of blue,
coiling around
lakes and mountainsides
bursts azure diamonds
in my hair.

~ Willow the Willow ~

Willow the willow
sing out
the magic garden
in the air of fun.

Lie beneath the tree.
Gaze on the water,
the scribbling
of innocence.

Take a stone
and fill a rose
in song.

Under the tree
lies a heart
that stormed
the willow the willow;
and the air sings.

~ The Ice of Frozen Winter ~

Shadow and Ice

In the ice of frozen winter,
black shadows walk.
Phantoms in the shade.
