Hippy recollections

entry picture

Undisguised wildness

once lived in everything about me.

Constantly bedraggled was my appearance


life was a cakewalk

very easy hazy,lazy


I could take or leave myself

in any state,anywhere,anytime.


illogical sunbursts

were the order of most days

and could be called on

at the drop of an inducing sugar cube.


It was indeed

and so so naively t...

Hot fuckers in the rye

We left our virginity behind

in the wheatfield.


Leaving so enraptured

hardly noticing

the Sun having been exchanged

for the Moon.


A beautiful first encounter

that we took home and

closed it in with

more ensuing phases of







the Sun

back to where

it had been


its heavenly warmth

In praise of an open window

entry picture

On my window sill,you

lost lepidopteran

glistening with radiance

jewelled in the fading sunlight.


I think lost

or did you come in purposely

for my benefit?

I shall assume the latter

and savour your company a little


then with silent thanks

take you back outside


where from my open palm

you set off flying high

Moonlight pathing

across this glass smooth ocean

travelling at calming speed

into the very depths

of my soul.

and whispering ebbs


the shoreline

and I

have become one.


One grateful lover.

Passing through Augusts country

Of greeness to goldeness.

hardily reaped.

Shimmering days.

Sun flashed streams.

Gull crowded combine harvesters.

Guilded horizons.

Summers smoulderings lazing in farmyards.



Times of joyousness.

Times of blooming.

Times of growing.

Times of my adorations going

away with time.

Should enclosures  threaten

I retreat to the haven of her arms.


An inner sanctum

where all encroachments are repulsed.


She pours  the religion of herself

Equips me

Her devotion is my sword

Her love,my shield.


She is every barrier

that murderous day.


Though debris of the plane

was scattered

my heart enables me

to see it

still flying up there


all the new Angels on board

are waving to me

on their way to heaven

and I to them.


This time

nothing or nobody

no matter how evil

their intent

Anything she thinks she can do

to save a beating

gets stomped and trampled under his

staggering feet

including the spirit of her childhood.


Sad monster in human form

dismantling any chance of happiness,blow by blow.

His demonic glare holds the reason for her fear

as it searches the bruised and battered punchbag she is

Dark poetess

Her mind recoils

by bland syllables.


She retreats

into  paganistic realms


shadowy words

But that privilege for me

The naming of my greatest loss

sorry Dad,but it's about you again!

He was a stagnated man

bereft of improvements and

unpeturbed by the need to improve.


His views and idea's of everything were stilled

unless he thought of any with the instigation of alcohol.

Alas they all returned to stillness when sobered.


But while I listened to them flowing in drunken words I loved them!

Now of mind

through time aligned

to accept and respect

the parallel of death

in a far off place

an enigmatic home

where revelations unfold

lifes futility ends

beyond all myths and stars

we once did naively comprehend.

There's a hole in my time net!

I tried to catch and keep today

but it escaped and

ran off with yesterday

both eventually joined last week. 

Sadly,all three became jaded

faded,and died.

They were buried in

the cemetery of months

which closed after one year.

So many times we drank the Moon to sleep

danced with love,oft times fought with its pain

cursed the lender of time,youth and chance

knowing he would never come again.


How readily immortal baited self assurances

we were all too glad to swallow.

Past on our possessions of reckless thoughts and deeds

to the many fools who were to follow.

Nobodys Gypsy

Born of the road,smelling of woodsmoke.

Untamed wayfarer,wild as the wind,hard as rock.

Believer in the ways of mystery

upholding the old traditions.

Traveller,unburdened by time,

unwearied by inclement weather,

steeped in the priority of loving horses.

Vagabond follower of the hearts directions.

Earth whisperer,her own soul self.

I must keep straying

where I need to be straying

before the pot holes consume all the roads

so look out all you doddering oldies while crossing

I've enough to do squashing cats and dogs and toads

if you dont hear me coming

one of these days you'll see

that by Mr. Wilde from life you'll be exiled

unless you can jump a height of six foot three!

Cumulous and Co.

See how they congregate

embracing each other in white silence.


Vaporous cathedrals

softest of mountains

floating landscapes.


An ethereal endless pale armada

drifting en masse without destination

in everchanging shapes.


Weightless wandering vessels

sailing an azured dry ocean.

Leaving sleep behind

on the wombs sweet pillow

you came embedding

What right does she have

of  patient love

to release you.

On the blackened heights above

a singular and solemn tree

ravaged by winters indiscriminate cruelty.


Its skeletal silhouette reaching

An imitation of a regretful soul
