Groan, another rude awakening…

Hacking smoker’s cough:
this rook has his own sweet song
to greet the morning.



Early morning rude-awakening….

Blackbird’s alarm call
shatters the dawn’s cool silence.
Of the cat, no sign.



A dull day, enlivened by a sighting of a kingfisher…

Impossibly blue,
blurred bullet pierces the day.
Grey settles back in



In the storm’s quiet aftermath, the dawn chorus …

A lone voice begins
Inspires us all to join in
This dam burst of song
