Grasses let grow long –
Hisses amongst wild flowers ~
Don’t do this again.

Paulownia blooms –
Littering the fresh cut lawn ~
Perhaps we’ll eat them.

Little purple fleurs –
Dotted low across the lawn ~
Survive my mowing. 

Awoken at dawn –

Dun dove on my windowsill ~

Bearing a message.


For Edmond Sheeran.

Ocean to mountain –

Now a riverside pathway ~

Folding space and time.

Morning beam of light –
Penetrating the canyon ~
Lugh stroking Danú. 

Your dark gaping maw –
Ten meters from where I sleep ~
Dreaming of Deep Time.

A smile costs nothing ~
Leaving the office today ~
The cleaner, the guard. 

Thunder a-rumbling ~
Cosy raindrops on my roof ~
Flashing memory

The fan in the room –

Does nothing to change the heat ~

Until I am there.
