May 2020

Unexpected late May storm…

The woods appear shook;
Fresh debris litters the floor.
The Scairbhín hits.



Morning in the greenwood…

The wood awakens.
Dark canopy dappled by
sunlight and birdsong.



Willow trees broadcasting their seeds on every breath of wind…

Wafting willow-down
decorating spiders’ webs;
gentling their menace.



Tá an t-am ag eitilt…

Dé hAoine arís.
Séideann na laethanta thart
mar bhláth na sceiche.



A good time for bees…

Bees’ chainsaw droning
cuts through early morning sleep;
darn workaholics!
