On Daffodils

November is not

When spring flowers should sprout

Earth adapts, we don’t

On Morning III

Light sneaks into bed

Brings birdsong and sounds of waves

Hope rises refreshed

On Morning II

Heavy cloud blanket

Dark reluctantly rises

Sleep grips the chosen

Romantic Fiction

No one could make this up

You sigh

But you just keep on

Making it up

On the hoof

Telling your lies

Ignoring the truth

Can you not see

The holes in the roof

Of your promised homeland

fantasy?

On The Breeze

Gentle draught carries

Scent and echoes from afar

Sea air and childhood

On Autumn VI

Butterfly, wings torn

Batted by splatter of rain

Spirals down with leaves.

On Autumn V

How bright dragonfly

Life sparkles in late summer

Passes too quickly

On Shingle

Rushing stones swept

By surging storm driven surf

Spit and hiss at Man

On The Beach

Relentless waves

Assault makeshift defences

Wash away resolve.
