January 2015

All these storms are really churning up the sea, massive swells rolling in…

Heaving neap-tide swell
greedily sucks rocky teeth.
Otter, unconcerned.

****************************

The woods are woods no longer, stripped of their leaves, the trees are naked, separate entities, stranded in unfamiliar light…

Leafless, the once-woods,
now individual trees,
are hungry for light.

*****************************

It’s love-time for the vulpine community: heart-stopping shrieks in the night…

Vixen haunts the night.
Banshee love-call rends the dark.
Moonlight floods the gap.

*****************************

Wild weather, hurricanes and storms, orange alert, red alert…

Power lines’ shrill keens
herald the storm’s outriders.
Trees and buildings quake.

*****************************

A very mixed start to the year, some beautiful days, some monsoon days…

Rain reclaims runnels;
Brightly glosses ivy leaves.
Streams – and robins – sing.
