~ Backgammon Sand ~

Gentle waves greet sandy shore with soft kisses.
Golden sun plays peek~a~boo from behind lilac coloured clouds.
Seagull mews its mournful cry.
I walk on backgammon sand.

~ Spring ~

The blackthorn is 
beginning to bloom,
and the hawthorn is 
showing the tenderest 
of new green, as its buds 
slowly give birth to its 
Spring foliage.
::
::
The collared doves send coded messages
of coo~ing love to one another,
and Sol climbs higher
and burns brighter
every day.

~ The Rooks Are Gathering ~

The Rooks are gathering
at Pelcomb Bridge;
making repairs to 
their grand estate
of twigs in the treetops; 
and heralding Spring
in a raucous chorus
of Rookery racket
::
::
and in the cold East wind
a Red Kite flies
::
High.

on their wings;
swooping in for the day,
chattering and singing
and making me smile.

~ Closed Into A Circle ~


Confuse centre of expansion;
accurately envisaged,
stretching, swelling, 
surprising curvature,
distortion,

space.

Sense bend in manner;
the concept of irrelevant buttons,
closed into a circle.

~ The Sea ~

  
I sit and watch your power, your beauty,
your wildness, your might.
You have strength, independence, freedom.
No one tames you, manipulates you; 
your will is your own.

You work with the wind and the moon,
You love the way they make you move.

Watching you lifts me high,
makes me sing;
and we have a common tide 
you and I,
expanding and contracting,
inhaling and exhaling;
the very motion of 
life.

~ The Storm ~


A thunderstorm blows itself 
into our sky;
all flashy, and showy and loud,
 backed by wild wind and rain torrents.

We turn out all lights
and turn off all noise,
and stand at the window
to watch its performance.

I give a startled 'oh' 
as I get blinded by each flash,
but thrill at the unfettered 
power of this Full Moon storm.

~ Worms ~

A blackbird in a cemetry
swaggers on a gravestone
surveying his necropolis territory,
 though heedless of its yard of bones,
- the only link - worms.

~ An Owl Hoots a Lonely Call ~

Jupiter and Selene 
slow~dance across 
the evening sky,
but it is Cassiopeia who
captures me tonight,
with her 'W' of woe...
and I hear the sea's tempest
and an owl hoots
a lonely call.

Cwm Cerwyn beckons ~
an escape to play in
vermillion drifts

~ As I Gently Drift to Sleep ~


The fire is warm,
though fading as the night ages.
Ash and willow burn,
red embers dimly glowing
as I gently drift to sleep.
Waka poetry

~ A Storytelling of Crows ~



The wind has stilled and
the birds cheer in a chorus
of peace, as a dove coos.

A hazy, filtered sun dips westward
behind the branches of Ash trees,
which stretch upward into a creamy
blue sky;
::
::
and crows gather in a story.
::
::
::
and I sit....and breath.

and the trees grow through
and show a gateway to light,
woven in magic.
