Friday Prayer

I was reluctant to go out

It would be cold, damp and boring

Just like yesterday and the days before.

I walked along the sea front,

Stopped for a mug of tea at Eddie's.

Then I turned back to the car .....

The sky had been obliterated

By lowering charcoal clouds

Beneath which, a ribbon of burning copper

Flamed along the horizon above

MultipleĀ metallics of glittering sea...

Haiku for Life

To sit amidstĀ trees

And watch a spider, silent,

Spin her silken web.
