Seagull

Seagull in sunlight.
Hillside casts me in shadow;
White bird in bright sky.

Seagull

 The picture is one I took last year in Blackpool and the light is nothing like the clear evening light when I was driving home yesterday evening. But it does at least show a seagull.

Winter bus stop

cold feet, cold fingers,
cold legs, cold face, cold eyelids,
heavy rain, darkness

Morning ritual

naked goddesses –
maiden, mother, crone – rinsing
chlorine from their hair

Cock-crow

Early morning mist.
Cocks launching their challenges
across the valley.

Sun-kissed

sun and breeze touch skin
stroking the boundary between
me and the summer

Primaeval

Green ferns and fir trees.
Murmuring woods remember
ghosts of dinosaurs.

The dinosaurs pre-date flowers as well as birds and most mammals: they inhabited a world of ferns and fir trees.

Cows in Buttercups – II

Rain… sun … buttercups.
Fields and fields of buttercups.
Hock-deep, the cows chew.
