Dear William

DEAR WILLIAM

Blooming before us
Daffodils remain speechless
For what are words worth?

Nature And The Unnatural

NATURE AND THE UNNATURAL

That which is so obvious,
so moving
to many of us
seems though invisible
to those
whose eyes are fixed
solely on shekels.

Echoes

ECHOES

Ashes now your flesh
Yet I hear your lost voice still
In blackbird, in thrush

Poetess: Haiku

POETESS

Ageing observer
Leaves replacing butterflies
Means nothing to her

The Fifth Element

THE FIFTH ELEMENT

Nature’s elements
Fire, water, air and earth
Beckon our spirit

Open Secret

OPEN SECRET

Droplets a-sparkle
Wink in the sudden sunshine
Nothing more to say

Warm Caress

WARM CARESS

Summer shower dusts
Windows with tiny raindrops
A delicate touch

Sweet Nothings

SWEET NOTHINGS

In soft silent snowflakes
The Great swirls all around us
Whispering sweet nothings
Intended for no ears but those
Of all these ancient trees
And – if I attend – mine

Fanfare

FANFARE

Flying in couples
Ten crows silently trumpet
Spring is in the air
