without the light
there’d be no shadow
no window box along the shed
without the sun behind the hedge

bending the shore line
her sugared approach creeps
in layers across the sand
no journey ends the same

differrence is beauty
in trees, they too have
souls and differences,
yet more acceptance

the morning is unfolding
light in even the darkest places
if you allow your heart to see

November Naani 4.

migrating geese come
whiffling down to roost
filling the air with preparation
the song of autumn

November Naani 3

Russet bracken
feathers the banks
along the bridleway
where brambles used to wander.

It appears one of my poems has been selected among The Best of Bolton and will be included in the performance at the Octagon Theatre.

Newly ploughed, furrowed field
earth undressed and laying bare
waits until next summer comes
clothing her in green
