Sweet Pea

Pastel colours and sweetness Modest flower of cottage gardens Encircled with soft green tendrils. * Delicate leaves rustle in the breeze The flowers bow to the heavenly dance And their fragrance ascends Towards the zenith Flowing on the updrift Until they reach the horizon. * There a girl lifts her head. She drops her hands… Continue reading Sweet Pea

Tea with Gooseberry Crumble

Baking fragrance leaps to the nostrils As friends meet in the tea-room White scrubbed floors and wooden furniture Clotted cream and choices of pastry Tablecloths and heather decorations Contrast the rugged hills and the sea.

Musical Birds

Violin drills emerge from the trees But nobody glimpses a fiddler, a source: Blackbirds can emulate any one sound They relish a challenge for fingers or throat. The robin however, his red breast afire Sings harmony, filled with enchantment, desire His voice trills and ululates; he measures invention Forms pictures of bliss while he waits… Continue reading Musical Birds

Fable

*** It has happened before but can’t happen again When fairy-tale whirl reaches everyday kin. Life becomes new as one kisses a frog. Princes will naturally just feel agog. Yet infinite wonders can sometimes restore, What panic of fantasies cannot deplore: More marvels and miracles vested in fable Than muses and monsters divest with a… Continue reading Fable

In a derelict world, We need Kindness. Yet, kindness may not be enough. * Recklessness takes away strength, Compels us to carry the cost and Turns us to strife * In a world of strife We need Patience. * Patience to bear what is raw Will turn against us Transform us to fighters Who savour… Continue reading Hope

Brooding

*** Green lights An orgiastic future fades How to grasp when the tension Between the possible and impossible Fails? * A blueish lawn turns frosty And naked feet will never progress Along the faded roses. Futile fears Turn the city into shadows Wailing about their loss. * We live in obscurity Possessed by reckless Dreams… Continue reading Brooding

Ball playing Mongrel

Flapping ears mark her longing to fly But the bitch never misses a ball. Frisbees, sticks, anything will do She catches high balls or curves Gleefully straining and running for her life Jumping higher than any cow, trying for the moon. Grannies and children beware! The exuberant buoyancy of this dame Takes no prisoners: Greetings… Continue reading Ball playing Mongrel
