Moon ~

The Wild Birds ~

The wild duck startles like a sudden thought, And heron slow as if it might be caught. The flopping crows on weary wings go by And grey beard jackdaws noising as they fly. The crowds of starnels whizz and hurry by, And darken like a clod the evening sky. The larks like thunder rise and […]

Why not wander round the park? There are ducks And benches where you can sit and watch.” I realized it was […]

Mystical Madness ~

Mystical madness ensues new beginnings Unlimited standards we find in this innings Strings create chains of nothing it’s true Transient journeys without point of view Brilliant is light when it’s taken from dark Enveloped in hope when we find that spark Likeness of love without perception of truth Opening stages of life’s kissing booth Virtual […]

Poetry

My family slept those level miles but like a bell rung deep till dawn I drove down an aisle of sound, nothing real but in the bell, past the town where I was born. Once you cross a land like that you own your face more: what the light struck told a self; every rock […]
