~ A Lover of Fire ~

A lover of fire,
of passion,
of ardour;
all senses intense,
as they slide
into the fertile
of a 
Beltane rut.

~ A Happy Daisy ~

With winter yielded, and 
Spring well advanced as Summer's midwife,
I dream of being warmed
to my bones;
every cell crying out 
for vitamin D;

and with face stretching upwards
like a happy Daisy
I will purr.....

~ Vernal tide ~

The river, 
down to the sea.
Braided, writhing water
pulled by a Vernal tide
under a 
Mother-of Pearl sky.

Unseen Lyrids

The heart's morning
felt its promise
free the sun;
as stars dim
in a brightening blue,
and shoot, 
unseen by naked eyes;
a shower of surprise.

~ Willows Weep My Name ~

Winded blue sky,
Cold with dreams
of granite~sharp rain
slicing into flooding streams,
where willows weep my name.

~ Garden ~

My garden assembles
love of the moon,
of dogs and stars.
the night, sweet rain,
hedgehogs, frogs and toads.

~ A Wound of Air ~

The creek,
fine as mercury,
opened the rock 
to a wound of air.

The glare of hot sun
streaming through,
swam bright as stars,
and danced over stones,
locking~in transient
refracted light.

~ Slow as Slow ~

The tide,
shaking off droplets,
envelopes air from Spring,
and turns slow as slow
into exhalation.
