From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

19 days into September

my wish is
to be as
as a tree
in the wind,
reach and dance
flail and whirl
as Dervish,
bow and rise
Elaine Patricia Morris (c) 2018

18 days into September

not should
just try it
make your own choice
thinking helps
look around you
speak words senses notice
Elaine Patricia Morris (c) 2018

17 days into September

3000 piece jigsaw
9 months in the making

16 days into September

the music of breeze
in an empty milk bottle-
early morning song

14 days into September

burning candles at both ends
meeting myself coming back-
some boats need burning
years roll on
always takes it’s toll
we must adjust
take a new road
keep the wheels turning
just take one step at a time-
live in the present
Follow breath
find brevity

13 days into September

year-end sprucing
hanging his own shelf

the baker needs bread
as priests and monks need prayer
………………………..Elaine Patricia Morris (c)


12 days into September

guest’s shadow through
the paper screen- I sit dreaming
over charcoal fumes
he sits also in silence
and yet companionship
…………………………Elaine Patricia Morris 2018
we have no need for chatter
the room maybe divided
but we are one in living
sharing the warmth
our breath anchors us
to earth and one another

9 days into September


In here ?
That’s a surprise
must have blown of course.
Not worried by me stepping close with camera.

8 days into September

autumn calls again
drizzling showers water now-
drought over, plants thrive
summer clothes away
knitwear makes an appearance-
darker evenings
autumn’s song
migrating here
coming back
for warmer air
where is home to those
who migrate to breed then leave
to over winter
where is home to you
reading this poem tonight-
things change for us too
Elaine Patricia Morris (c) 2018

7 days into September

jigsaw festival
stock up now for winter-
cosy evenings ahead
