alive to what’s new

risen from deep sleep

with strength of limb, mind at peace

unburdened of years

woken by bird song

without memory

chest-deep in your tears

you waded to the far bank

found a place of rest

grass mown and tedded

wuffled to speed its curing

awaiting baler

keep on keeping on

however much it’s hurting

one step at a time

On Cricket

lost in crazy crowd

found myself wrapt in laughter

caught being happy

so you placed my hand inside

your heart packed with ice

draws colour from earth and sky

green wheat fields shiver
