on the island

caught against a wall
colour diluted by headlights
fox trotting through town

Dream #15

spangled moonless night

retreats from black to blue

I spin towards dawn grateful

sleep’s re-hash of ancient noire

will be rubbed out

by exposure to the Sun

On Earth

Night’s shadow climbs hill

fills in hollows, outlines trees.

Sun ignites heaven.

On Dreams iii

What was meant by it?

Ambiguous, incomplete.

Days haunted by nights.

On Morning II

Heavy cloud blanket

Dark reluctantly rises

Sleep grips the chosen
