Sticky

that first call alerts him,

eight legs run to the cot,

threads stream behind,

silken, the best he's got

 

each year they tighten,

vibrations excite more,

never stops watching,

repairs those that tore

 

escaping is impossible,

your destiny unfurling,

a decade like a second,

years like nets whirling

 

this one will never age

anymore than his web,

Intervals Of Rain

Its great when the sun shines no clouds to be seen

And luck is on your side and there's no sign of pain

But life is a roller-coaster its all ups and downs

Sometimes you must shelter from intervals of rain

 

Intervals of rain intervals of rain

No sky stays forever dry

Intervals of rain intervals of rain

Bring tears to clear your eye

 

Remember the people suffering out ...

Quiet

How I wish the world was more quiet

I really hate all this hurly-burly

Pop music is screeching somewhere

Here’s a glow stick and whistle

To your grieving widow

And hold a rave on your grave

I’m gonna hold a rave on your grave

At the Grave

As the rains came we followed

As the rains fell we listened

And walked towards the minister,

Passing by the dark grave wherein she lies,

To drop another daffodil, a final kiss from life,

On the pale box below.

And on, to cluster round beneath the trees

Circling the family, rooted by some strange harmony

Of communion: a drifting mass lost in loss.

On the hillside, as the ...

The Silent Quill

`


a grated gate by midnight's light
once fell upon a sorry sight
as rain washed out the scarlet stain
the skies bowed down to hear the pain

a voice without a body heard
the sordid tale its waist did gird
one witness found, torn leaf by leaf
Creation's glory sank to grief

a tale no word was writ nor said
into the ground the silence bled
a soaked and orphaned quill remains
