January 2016

Listening to the rain…

Gullies ring, drains sing,
Streams chorus to leaf-drumming.
Music of the rain.

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

Interminable storms and unceasing rain….happy new year!

Dark, low, winter sky.
The trees sighing and moaning.
The road, two tear tracks.

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

Great light, these mid-winter evenings…

Trees scratch inky lines
on a blotting paper sky.
Ink blots, the crow flock.

(15/01/16)

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

More – or continuous – storms, thankful to be in the shelter of the trees…

Grizzled old oak trees
rake the storm with stretched talons.
Tearing it to shreds.

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

Don’t mess with the King of the Birds…

A wren gives out yards,
scolds any – all trespassers.
Berates everyone.
