on dreams

aroused from slumber
implausible bedfellows
disturbed rookery

n.b. What was that all about? One dream I won’t be following up on. Thank goodness the day is bringing colour to the sky.

on time

travel with me too
don't just talk of history
we'll share sunrises

n.b. We live in hope for tomorrow.

Why getting up and stepping out is better than drawing the blinds and giving up

last owl
first blackbird
ruffled wren
crow drifts from stricken oak
gull sets down by upturned bin
starlings strung out overhead
puffed up pigeon pursuing hen
sparrows cluster
blue tit picking cherry blossom
woodpecker working through the park
mallard mutters while wandering past
robin sings to robin across the path
oh! happiness of goldfinches

~

n.b. NaPoWriMo 2022 Day Thirteen: living with hope in your heart.

on light

shadow of night flees
swiftly hauled in by the dawn
illumination

on dawn

grass sparks, smoulders, smokes
brittle chaffinch call echoes
night's pale shroud lifted

on dawn

yes, we can do this
your way, my way or our way
meet me at day break

CLP 12/01/2022

on light

tune into new day
Sun tweaks its colour settings
birdsong audible

~

n.b. Without the dampening affect of full foliage the morning is a pretty noisy time of day, particularly now that there is no lockdown in England and traffic on the bypass and into the city centre is increasingly heavy.

on morning

colour brings out shape
shape becomes solidity
scene set for day's play

CLP 14/12/2022

on light / on time / on fear

undressed in the dark
slid underneath bed covers
made up to see you

~

n.b. “We come from nothing, return to nothing.”

on daylight

uneasy waking
day stumbles out of duvet
cold shower beckons
