June 2020

Finally: rain, after those long, dry weeks…

Rain’s fine soprano
counterpoints the stream’s bass boom;
liquid harmony.

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

That blackbird again…

Blackbird’s sweet notes spill,
tinkling through the morning air:
“clear, crystal fountain”.

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

Watching the swifts over Ballydehob…

Sun plays hide and seek.
Swifts boomerang round the sky
with high, playground cries.

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

Listening to the blackbird’s liquid song…

Blackbird practicing.
Repeating the tricky bits
until they’re perfect.
