Explorer (16a)

EXPLORER

Mystery
Childhood favourite
Whyspering
In my ear
Fairy stories beckoned me
Hinting at ingress

Looking here
Looking there of course
(OCD)
Each stone turned
Discovering vibrant life
Cloaking … Mystery

Divorce (15b)

DIVORCE

Eggs don’t bounce
No doubt about it
Broken shell
Yolk and white
Slowly evaporating
Seems that’s all we left

Take Care (15a)

TAKE CARE

Let’s take care
Pitfalls surround us
Possess us
Yet no one
Is busy constructing them
But the I we are

Katzenjammer (14b)

KATZENJAMMER

Cats abound
Frolic unbounded
Wonderland’s
Schrödinger’s
Let us keep an open mind
Mysteriously

Llangammarch Blaze

Llangammarch Blaze

There now, lay it all down,
The soft memory and the memory of hard bone.
After the year’s first true frost
A dead sheep lies in the field becoming a dance of hawks and ravens.
And on a lonely hillside unremarked
A blaze has born the babies away.
A smudge of smoke and the light of morning
Is no prayer of peace to ones who wait
Empty-hearted for better news.
The village, warm now in sun, silent.
Thoughts unthought of before – friends vanished,
Those known, now unplaced, a hollowness
Around memory clung to.
It is an uncertain anchor to hold on to –
This world that blinks apart from day to day.
Should we rise and flow like the oak leaves
On the cold dark currents of the Irfon?
Or wrap around like ivy, cling like lichen bloom
To this weathered stone.
We are a thin soil…

Spread across our posts
You and I
Conversing
I come across them again
And I shed a tear

IDLE IDOL

There you stand
Though often seated
Admired
Nay, adored
An odd infatuation
Given all are one

Moon In Cancer (13a)

MOON IN CANCER

Water-born(e)
Incessant riptide
Tortuous
Exquisite
The eyes of the Universe
Ever unblinking

A century since
Years ago
Orwell coined
“War is peace” and “Doublethink”
Today: normalised
