  • Blue Night

    Black, the trees stretch, dazed, Dreaming of moonlit adventure and sweet breezes The moon looks down. Serene. * No nightbirds sing Siren strains Silence fills the air with untold wonder And leaves the night blank * Blue mist embraces the sky Damping emotions, it stills the aching heart My mind bleeds purple thoughts ©HMH, 2023

  • Little Old Lady

    She smiles toothlessly sweet Each day in her favourite seat. Birdlike bones barely keep her grounded; Thin and spare, she enjoys life, though bounded A hat weighs down her age-old tresses. So, she faces life and her guesses, Equipped for spinning her yarns and expresses. * ‘My canary was a wit! Once only, she flew…

  • October Sky

    On a sunny day Bright and breezy Clouds become wisps, Unable to cloud the sky. * Hopeful, We think it will bring warmth. * Not so. This kind of blue is Icy Withering Chilling us to the bones * It makes us dream, Though spring won’t Come For a command Begging doesn’t help. * Wrap…

  • Woolly Tale

    Softest warmth and cosy comfort Fluffy, hirsute, light as dusters Fills the distaff during hours, Lived and lost but won for welfare. Warp and weft bring amplest texture. Surely gained through timely tenure Fixed to loom with bright inflexion, Wear and tear give sweet protection. * Lambs must offer their safe haven, Bleating sorrowful, disclosed…

  • Moonlit Night

    White, furry friendsTheir eyes enigmatic,Blue and yellow mysteriesFull of spunk andSpectacular senses * Moaning and singing Under the full moon Keeping me awake * Their feline bodies Dance Twisting around one another As they screech their lust Into the night © HMH, 2023

  • Eternal Love

    Stardust veils a memory. Strange and twisted, It haunts my nights. An unknown face An unknown voice And yet, it evokes Half-forgotten eras. * Centuries pass Creations collapse And resurface, Wither away And rise from ashes That glitter like jewels. * Who is this ghost? A lover or an angel? An echo of A long-lost…

  • Heat Wave

    Fierce light dazzles the eye The air shimmers And expands. You struggle to breathe, Sweat trickles down your back, And the soil opens deep cracks. Withered flowers draped On yellow grass Expire Under the merciless Sun ©HMH, 2023

  • Cork on the Water

    * I will be OK. * I’ll pop up like a cork on the water. Try it Press me down, No matter how long,And see. * I will be back. * Unhurt? No way Humiliated? Perhaps But I will be back, Floating, and Moving along * ©HMH, 2023

  • Spring Rain

    ` The copper-beach triad stretches thirsty leaves towards the sky As the rain starts dripping Colours awake and shimmer in the hazy air Blades of grass raise on tiptoe to drink liquid life * A girl walks, laughing towards the dripping greyness As clouds gather and empty their burden On the languishing soil * Little…

  • Goldcrest

    ` Is it possible that something this tiny can fly? Yellow and green With hollow bones to reduce weight This feathered miracle ends his flight Between the paws of an excited cat. Braced for his thrill the meowing ogre Starts to play with his prey but Someone must thwart his lust * It is hard…
