On Playing iii

Disregard of fears

leads you to discovery

of hidden talents

~

p.s. Play safe, or try stuff out for fun? What have you got to lose by trying? It’s only a game after all. It will be your turn to start next. ‘Mugs away’ as the saying goes.

It’s just gone midday

After rapid 50k

Pint of noon Sun, please!

Low autumnal Sun

sharpens colours, darkens shade

heavy dew becomes mist

Stopping everything

to observe a wasp at work

in September sun

Morning lights our shore

gulls call us to discover

gifts brought in on tide

Unbridled laughter

carried by telephone lines

to prised open heart

On Pleasure

In a second hand book,

bought on a whim,

I discovered someone

had kept a four-leaf clover

between pages

of Seamus Heaney’s poems.

On Daynight

Like owls, we start night

Without wait for loss of light

Love bites into day
