12 days into February

reflections and ghosts
busy about Tesco
tinted double glazing
coffee at dusk

House sparrows

I saw them queuing yesterday
eight, nine or ten there in a line
but not today, today they’ve flown
the roofers came and took there home
.
they’ve lived across the road from me
for over thirty years or more
displaced and homeless whatever next
where will they build another nest
.
so many generations lived
beneath the tiles of 308
now with their numbers in decline
are there loose tiles at 309

10 days into February

cool breeze
through trees
with ease
no leaves
February cool breeze through trees blow
sunlight flickers with ease, no leaves though

9 days into February

I see her
through
the window square
.
Storm Erik
stripped
the fushia bare
.
limbs exposed
she’s
shivering now
.
unseen leaves
deep
within her boughs

8 days into February

along the road
wet rainbow swirls-
broken down lorry

a woodland stream
a tasselated hazel-
ripples

at the end of the spit-
one reed mace

5 days into February

concentric circles
dilate on the lake-
my eyes widen in wonder

4 days into February

mumble and hum of conversations
in this cosy cafe-
outside snow undisturbed
on picnic tables
