On Cricket

lost in crazy crowd

found myself wrapt in laughter

caught being happy

On Water iii

great crested grebes dance

like that Sunday afternoon

when our hearts dove-tailed

n.b. Somewhat hidden by the willow branches, but they are there…promise.

Lunacy

she pulls at the watery cloth

tied tight to shore

although it shifts at anchor

it will not come free

so she cannot hide her arid face

from a world that won’t stop

spinning, cannot pause while there

is still a breath of air

On Memory ii

We at tower top

blue mist lines of distant hills

Il duomo bells
