Back to back

On returning from a two hour absence spent at the shops (ten minutes away) wife verbally re-enacts into my unenthralled ears the local gossip.   A droned two hours later I virtually know about every recent individual ailment suffered by the townsfolk'   Who is dead, who is on the verge of the same. The latest news headlines phot...

Preferred attendance

When long gone the resignation of Winter from our bones we shall bask beneath the infestation of the Sun, our shadows acknowledging the burnished skies beautifully signing their brightness on everything, idealising the coming picture of Natures kind side. Never have I dreamt better than this! O for the glad returning migratory,hi...

In between days

It is not the imperfect future that will close ever just day. Withering,turning its head and waiting as the fluent layers of Moon light bless our silent portraits and dumbed sleep.   Wishing to be something alive in the cosmos gaunt and grisly spectres bereft of heavens location, repeat their ghostly routines.   Bidding me in dreams to...

Envied,cursed,and laughed at players on our everywhere stages, taking great care to look infamously fam...

Cycling down Pencilled Street.(57 years ago)

  Being short of toys let alone food and love,during the rag-arsed days of my childhood,imagination had to be and was my greatest friend. But when wrongly used often got me into Dads bad books.   On one occasion (one near miss) that regularly comes to mind,was when Dad,despite his struggle with a hard, poor paid job and the bo...

Altering sculpture of celestial light.   Inspiring the emotions of and loved by lovers.   Faintly lustred traveller inaudibly caressing the land.   Kindly pale vision of awe instigator of peace,proud in the full bloom of spirituality.   Blessed are we by your everchanging image.

Land Lantern

Capable of interrupting darkness capable of invading fog.   The slow spinning beam glare's, fan's out seeking to warn nautical venturer's in the sea clinging night.   Like a bright eyed cyclops watching over the gloom crammed spaces. Mournfully singing out his one note to the precarious and unwary traveller's upon the undulating horiz...

Remembering the title-HUMAN

Some say,

bloody foreigners!

milking their claim

to British citizenship,

(supposedly) stripping the meat

off the backbone of our country!

 

I say,

to my countrymen and women,

not so much how very un-common market of you,

but how very un-worldly of you!

 

If only the starving,

the war ravaged,

the ethnically 'cleansed'

the thirsty,

The orchard framed within my window tells it's soundless story of Winter's demise   As each branch await's the birth of fruitful companionship when blossom shall descend upon them like snowflakes   Once again refilling the empty bough,s, warmly replenishing a seasonal dream

A lucky day for a beastiality fan

An old gentle animal lover (in the extreme) walking down the street when he hears a voice- "psst-could ya help me out?" He looks around,but there's nobody there.   He looks more carefully and glances into a nearby bush where he see's a sad eyed Donkey. Though he's a little embarrassed to be talking to a Donkey,he ask's " did you speak to me?" ...

  Looking back I am as glad today as I always will be that my Father remained as he was from my very beginning, our gentle ruler.   Although I pity him for having lost his way in this life I would not have wanted him to have easily become had he set his mind to it,using hidden skills, pompous,brash and overbearing.   But stayed the one ...

  The past of his love life closes,like a book sadly read which,when first opened displayed such an indulgence in loves aspects the kind only to be found in the hearts hallucinations   But his eyes read differently now and he hears only silence menacing more frighteningly than his own trembling shadow mocking him with whispers of t...

The need to hold something back

 

If I love you I,ll tell you. If I hate you I,ll tell you. If you get on my nerves I,ll tell you. If you do anything that gets to me I,ll tell you.   Now I,m thinking what it is I won,t tell you.

Having played his part

I could hardly make him out -in the early morning light, ugly in his uselessness but pitiful amongst the tide-line rubble.   His wings which once graced the air with careless freedom now sprawled wildly.   As if he'd desperately refused to acknowledge defeat, his feathers windblown, as though trying to lift him from death,s hold. ...

  Now has come a silence to claim the stilled air as it floats sullenly,oilily about the condemned machinery enforced into uselessness.   No more the sounds of metal battling against metal no more the shouted chatter. Clocked off for the last time, the grimed band of the old breed the old skills,the old contented happinesses.   The last...

  Lady of Winter pale. As though born of the Moon, descends down the chilling paths of wind.   Her breath of ice permeates beyond the window of my Soul coldly blurring my hearts memory of Summer.   Subterraneously the Spring awaiting greenery surrenders to sleep beneath the unrolling white cascade   While in sterile pal...

Last return

  A thickening darkness enfolds the derelict house near claimed by the invisible cloaking of snowfall. It is a place burdened with sorrow deserving of its own emptiness.   What am I doing here,why did I return, was this my home or my prison?   Even now it still reeks with the memories of my trials and tribulations. No-one dares to come here any...

From my days

as a self employed

I often look back

to the time

Dad and I

into believing the following,

somewhat, exaggerated tale.

 

Father and I were carrying out

the usual task of a removal

when we were presented with an unforeseen problem.

Overnight the lonely aged householder
