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
