Song of the Sunflower

`



Was it the yellow of your bright petals
or the way you danced in the breeze
that I brought you home from fields?
Was it the strength of your upright stalks
or the camaraderie, your solidarity?

There in the sun you sang hope,
songs that filled a mourning heart;
there in the wind you whispered
plaintive farewells on conflicted air-
fill this grieving with consolat...

Collecting light

 

We are bathing in light,

resting from shadow,

lamenting through night.

 

home fires are burning

in coloured glass jars,

flickering bright.

 

An afterglow of sweet memories

breaths soft contented sighs.

Moons fluid silk shimmers beyond sky.

 

Peppered Moth defies instinct

seeking safe illumination,

from magnetised flight.

Kiss, promise, tell

 

A first kiss promise,

tangibly felt through fearful lips.

Smiling eyes offer more,

more than I could pledge.

 

Clutching at sunshine,

Through your gaze, expectancy

In your spoken words, urgency.

 

Writing down lines, where tears soak paper.

Pulling apart seams, a telling intent,

packed into a case, a delibe...

My Nan sleeps with Brian Jones


‘Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep
He hath awakened from the dream of life’

Jagger tugs weeds, rakes a bed
of graveyard shale,
drags a copper wire brush
through moss lumps
gathered by the guest book 
and its dew dribbled plastic bag -
there to keep the water out.
He pulls cart-wheeling cellophane
from his shin,
paints a black shadow across the ultimate ...

I need to hear your smile,
so tender, sweet and light,
not so very often
but once in every while.

once I said 'I'm your man'
you replied how...

Early January Snow Blues

There is calmness

Like a Buddhist prayer

On the road

When it snows

And cars are afraid

To come down it.

 

There is softness

In the trees rustling

When the wind

Shakes it off

Which reminded me

Of my father

When he used

To shake off his boots

Before he stepped back inside

After gritting

The front path.

 

And as it gets so...
