like cow parsley but small


On each stem, a constellation.


Wild flowers in the long grass

by the bus stop. Thin cloud


but I can still find the north star.

 

tannoy


Clouds, applause

& tannoy from the athletics track

drift across the lake.


On a blue buoy, a cormorant

with outstretched wings.

clank


Clank of a ladder.

Roofers adjusting slates.


I woke with the crow's

scratchy throat


and dressed in black.

 

gazebo ;-)


After yesterday's experience,

an unsettling dream:


herds of gazebo

sweeping less than majestically

across the plain. In a high wind.

 

accidentally


Accidentally,

brushing a fluttering moth

from one leaf pile to the next.


Reincarnation, too,

is a fanciful notion.
 
 

hawk


Hawk, on a fence post.

First light,

the rain a kind of mist.
 
 

apostate


Wind-snatched words.


Apostate,

letting go even of

haiku.
