three roses
tinged with apricot
this wanting

a darkened mirror -
today's silence
can't be shared

tangled
in holly and ivy -
a fallen angel's wings

one upright gravestone
among oddly angled ones -
Edward Askew Sothern

almost worn
from the stone, the words
'passed away'

headstones -
my tongue finds the place
of the lost filling

crowding around
the chapel door -
buttercups

hollow cross -
a little water
gathered in it

between the graves
a perfect
dandelion clock

cappuccino -
a low flying bee disturbs
the fallen blossom

Thursday, May 11, 2006

shirtless and white skinned
in the first real heat they carry
Asda bags of beer
through the haziness
of a city-centre park

these summer nights
wanting to go to bed
before it's dark

Friday, May 05, 2006

with the first
warm days of summer -
decree nisi

Thursday, May 04, 2006

sneaked up
when I wasn't looking -
white bluebells
