A CINQKU COMPENDIUM 2

light
frost whitens
the frozen verge-
inert below,summer
awaits

under
the hedge a
welcome haven-
down my neck raindroplets
trickle

dozing
on the lawn
St Swithans day-
large round spots splash into
my lap

missing
in action-
his memory 
clipped to a bedroom
mirror

a kiss
an affair-
separation
drowns into memory's
abyss

the elk
cub misses
the herd's retreat-
a lone wolf howl calls to 
the pack

splendour,
luxury
and much fine art-
in abstentia-the
gentry

a school
of dolphins-
on the starboard
a synchronised swimming
display

winter
turns to spring
high in the trees-
the rookery erupts 
in noise

Roasted
chestnuts on
bonfire embers-
forties recollections
alight

smitten
by a smile
the warmth of love
engaged and now lives on
engraved

five toes
and a pad
imprint the snow-
hunger brings a stranger
at night
