Hour snow

Blanc flakes nestle honestly outside,

Crisp winds slap almost lovingly,

Heavenly scenery melting suddenly,

All is as it was once before.

MOONSISTER

 

MOONSISTER

 

Moonsister, earth goddess,

The sky awaits you, your

searching gaze pauses the

heavens.

Does your heart beat in

time with nature or do you

listen to the wind for your

name being called?

ENGLISH LANDSCAPES

 

ENGLISH LANDSCAPES

 

Here in our English country there is a broad range of scenery,

Form the ancient greenery of an oak wood to the gently flowing

rivers of the lowlands, this is a country of many moods and colours.

There are hills and marshes, mountains and lakes all with wild life galore.

Everyone is pleased to see such graceful scenes if out walking or quietly s...

GOD’S LAND

 

GOD’S LAND

 

As it reaches its zenith the midnight sun casts its pale light over this silent land.

Nothing stirs except the howling winter wind over miles and miles of emptiness.

No animal or man is to be found here, only the elements in their most basic form.

Earth, wind, fire and water. This is God’s land, a timeless placeless place.

DAMP 1

 

Out walking to where three valleys meet,                                                                                                                                                                                                           past Dovestones, on a drizzly day.                                                                                           ...

Solitary in winter

I find you on the beach

sleepbound.

 

I’ve walked some miles across this sand

wind knocking me back.

On my right the sea battles.

My hair lashes my face.

 

In this chaos of desolation

you are a concentrated essence

a nugget of pure exhaustion.

What lies behind your dreaming ruby eye?

 

The pressure of the sea

HIKE

 

HIKE

I’ve been on an eight mile hike with my mate, getting out of town.                                                               

Up roads, to the Waterworks to give a witch my Amelia Earhart spell.                                                                                    

Venturing through farmer’s fields, over dry stone walls and under barbed wire fences.      ...

BOULDER

 

 

BOULDER

 

The massive boulder sits in the lea of the moor; it has been here for a million years

and seen everything that has ever happened.

So many tons of stone made up of all of the elements which make up the very

planet itself.

This piece of stone has been here longer than Man himself and it has seen so many years

come and go, from the harsh cold of wi...

RAGING RIVER POEM

RAGING RIVER

 

The raging river runs all year round through the varied landscape,

hundreds of yards wide and a dozen deep, a lifeline of the planet.

Full of life, a river of life for the people who live by it and for nature herself.

Mankind uses this river as a source of food and power with his river boats.

He is often blind to the harm he can do, taking too much fish an...

No End To The Show

 

When the wind swept the path, all the leaves took a chance,
some were dropped in the pool, whilst others spun in a trance.
For some time were we entertained, then the rain had it's say,
so those droplets of pure sparkle, brought an end to the ballet...
 
But a light show was to follow, as the sun broke the cloud,
and the rainbow's bright curves made us all gasp out...

CIRRUS

What will it take for you to give a damn? To give instead of to take? Instead of taking and raping the, our, world of her resources, you decide to do an about turn and care for our precious planet. Not to turn the clouds black with smog and car exhaust fumes, no more acid rain in her lakes and rivers. No black seas and polluted beaches full of oil from a so calle...

The Tall Green Grass

entry picture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The wild colt enjoyed

galloping through

the tall green grass.

 

One day he was captured

and made a beast of

burden. He worked in the

field and pulled the wagon,

but he longed for

the tall green grass.

 

He grew old and weak,

one day he lay down

and closed his eyes.

When he opened...

Nutty Squirrel

This squirrel is crunchy nuts

like Kellogs.

He's oats so crazy.

 

He makes Hammy look

placid, docile.

And with a cheeky smile

wrecks havoc on Hampshire.

 

It'll take more than a New Forest

to stop this rabid squirrel.

He subjugates snails

and bullies badgers.

 

Bonkers, he th...

Wishing For Rain

 

Now with added audio (felt better read).

 

Wishing For Rain

 

She spent that week,

Wishing for rain.

 

Every morning that

Same,

Brown,

Grass,

Reaching towards her.

 

But a dry week

Of flat-packs

And quick pick-me-ups

From a garden sale,

Hid the hate.

An attempt to resuscitate

The happy days of swing

Seats, and...

'But a man'

‘But a man’


If it were, for only birds to see
Through skies, far and wide
Then would we not want to see

Through birds eyes?

If it were only for the horses to gallop
Distances far and wide
And only our limbs could take us there
Could we take that, in our stride?

If it were for only fish to swim
To cross oceans, rivers and waters full
And to sink to their depths of ...
