Twisted Roots

Alone stands modern man,          product of products for

Hair, skin, white-teeth, tan;         ethos came shop bought and canned.

Artificed for ease of use                 synthetic fibres force away

Weather’s organic abuse,             like a magnet repellent to life.

Even here, in this place where                    the pace of life slows into seasons,

Moonlit Garden

What hides amid the darkness,

absent of the sunlight,

In the dimly moonlit garden,

deep into the night.


Yesterday's glimpse of a weasel

and capture the visitations

from prickly hedgehogs.


Hopeful there would be a fox,

The evening sun scorches the shade.

The trees, in their glade, are forced to choose;

Earth and Sky

Lime, fern, shamrock, juniper and parakeet

And the blue can never desecnd 

What is there to do?

Let it rain, let it rain

The sky goddess shed tears for the earth god
