on time

crash out, power down
just let the clock tick over
bounce back tomorrow


CLP 07/05/2022

on time

one of those long nights
eagle owl drifts through city
alarm brings respite


n.b. At last, the blessed relief of the Angelus bell.

On Display

finally at rest

no need for further pretence

true colours revealed


CLP 14/07/2021

On the Road xxvi

Restlessness ceases

Traveller’s weary heart breathes

Grass soft underfoot


n.b. God bless her and all who sail in her.
