scruffy sheep
clumps of fleece on wire fence-
summer pickings- winter jumpers

10 days into June

Troiku……..

summer evening
at the end of my street
a full moon

summer evening
swifts squeal across the sky
leaving no trace
.
at the end of my street
the future waits
to become the now
.
a full moon
beckons me
towards another time

cows in the meadow

. birds singing
. harmonies blend
. my drifting sleep
.
. in the dark
. clouds quilt the sky
. the clock chimes
.
. rainy dawn
. stars sleep unseen
. I awaken

Reluctance (acrostic)

Reluctant to force words from my tired mind
Even though my pencil is poised to write
Looking back over the last seven days
Usually I aim to find something bright.
Colours swirl into a whirling rainbow
That spins on an axis of work and fun
All around birdsong and flowers so sweet
Nothing compares once nature’s begun
Caring enough to enjoy and conserve
End pollution, that’s what our children deserve.

First day of June

carnival weekend
the bathroom full of fairground-
window left open
