~ A Child of the Woods ~

Born a child of the woods
where trees were my mother
green leaves my father;
the creatures my siblings, 
our playmate ~ the river ~
where days were spent collecting stones,
floating leaves, gathering twigs;
taking strolls through bordering fields
filled with meadowsweet ~
stretching out on this Queen of the Meadows
~ releasing her honied scent 
and dancing with butterflies ~
arms spread wide, then flung in a hug
around an Oak,
a Beech,
an Alder,
a Birch.

~ Calico Silver Air ~

Calico silver air
strokes the sea
to a perfect calm,
as the ghost 
of a breeze
teases the trees
into telling
their aged tales.

A bird cries its woes
as it flies to the sun,
its black feathers
shining blue.....

While grass gives birth
to yellow stars
with hearts of green 
for leaves.

~ A Whisper of Red ~

Surfers in a silver sea.
Moon hours away from full.
A whisper of red in the west
~ from the sun's leavings.
Turquoise sky.
Mountains black.
Waves in sets of quadruplets.
The drums of my ears
catch the rhythm of incoming tide ~
full and pregnant
like the moon.

~ LIVE ~

Should you go to true love ~
to skies so blue
and warming winds;
to summer birds
with songs
that make you weep;
to flowers with
colours deep enough
to make you fly,
and trees with 
leaves so green,
: :
 breath them in,
and live.

~ A Dream of Stardust ~

I had a dream that
I held in my hand ~
the rising moon, 
the setting sun, 
and Mars
: :
: :
a cosmic trine spinning
on my outstretched palm.

With a Tranquil Sea
and a Bridge of Light
and a frozen, snowy Ice-Cap.

When my fingers curled
to hold them close,
they spiraled free

The rocks of the sea,
curving in water,
and salt-washed;
spilling white

~ Walks the Moon ~

In the wood
a tree bars stars,
guards Venus,
walks the moon
and moves light.

~ Crystal Sea ~

Drizzling shadows of a river,
flow to blue meadows
from veiny, far~off hills
to the crystal sea.

~ Light, Like Water ~

Light, like water,
innocently shrouds face
and endlessly
glares reflection.

Avoiding smiles,
someone calls.

Whitened tears
and blinded sounds
sleep in clouds.

~ Breath ~

I am hungry.
Starved for the nourishment of trees.
I am gasping for air.
I need to breath, 
in a womb of green.

~ Time to Go ~

birds prepare for slumber.
A harsh wit-wit, a soft brt-brt,
rustling feathers to get more ease.

pale, growing,
inching across a lapis sky;
pulling tides, pushing moods
to breaking point - without no never mind.

Yellow stars, heart-shaped leaves,
closing against sunless cold.
Snowdrops ragged. 
Time to go.
Time to go back inside.

Snow, transient white.
Melting away into green.
Echoing crystals.

~ Firelight Shadows ~

Firelight~shadows on old white walls
make a story for all who see;
flickerings and dancings
in hues of red and gold
with a dash of blue,
a hint of green;
a puppet show 
for the imagination.

Fire and wall meet in a whispering
slow waltz,
rudely interrupted
when the light goes on ~
and the magic is gone.

~ A Cry to the Wind ~

Trees talk to me.
Leaves singing counterpoint
to the birds' chorus,
as low clouds
kiss my hair silver black;
and Ravens fly towards me
with their message in their eyes;
and I let loose a cry 
to the wind.

~ Soft Night ~

Light from a boat, nearly full moon, Jupiter. 21st September 2010

Soft night.
Silent moon-arrows
open the evening,
sliding fiery, blazing music
on the air.

Blow the sleek sea
and remember home.

~ An Autumn Afternoon in Gwbert ~

I remember the grey silk of the sea ~
a dull silver~pewter,
ironed smooth and flat,
and holding her breath,
in a perfect still~point
at that
turn~of~the~tide moment
on a mild, pearly,
autumn afternoon in Gwbert.

~ On the Rim of Long Summers ~

A golden tree ~
A drum to beat
Strong and sweet
On the rim of long summers
with hot blue seas.
Slowly seabirds
fly across the sun, 
and, running through
bright air,
I shout out the
fun I cannot contain.

~ Ghost Walk ~

Walking around oaks
grave and silent, 
we failed.
We stood by stone
where flowers and words
were born in the landscape
and sitting in fields,
with tears,
as bards and poets
in flowing white, 
around roots long forgotten.
