From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

Solitude (tanka)

  Beneath the willow

  in the company of yew,

  and hawthorn; I sit.


  While her knot eyes watch over

  in silence;  my solitude.

Summer Villanelle

  Behold the glorious summer solstice,

  balmy days all our tomorrows,

  earth’s aura meets the sunbeams kiss.


  Far behind the starlight trellis

  hushed dawns ascending sunlight shows,

  behold the glorious summer solstice,


  through half closed eyes in dreaming bliss.

  Blowing bubbles full of rainbows

  earth’s aura meets the sunbeams kiss.


  Standing stones the circles chalice,

  welcome back sweet singing swallows,

  behold the glorious summer solstice.


  Hawthorn, oak and ash the coppice,

  ceilidh dancers stripping willows,

  earth’s aura meets the sunbeams kiss.


  Buttercup summers such as this,

  swaying corn in sunshine mellows,

  behold the glorious summer solstice

  earth’s aura meets the sunbeams kiss.

  A scarlet poppy

  amongst wayside green and gold,

  waves in remembrance.
