Rednecks and Roundabouts
Rednecks and roundabouts, they don't mix.

She never planted roses by the door

Instead, she planted...Read More

Rumors spread like a flood seeping through the streets
That an adult black panther, kept as a pet, had escaped,
And was now prowling around the back alleys in town, according to the tweets.

The Next Supper
Blimey times are tough lately,
and most of the stations too.
I haven't eaten for a week;
the squatters offerings is 'shoo'.
My wish is flour for some damper;
a small handful of leaves for tea.
They reckon we're all pests out here,
the blokes who walk...Read More

He waits for me in my dreams each night
I hear his soft neigh when he catches sight

who sits on his back as we travel the world.

I saw the old stone cottage
A shell of all it used to be
Its gardens wild and overgrown
but that cottage spoke to me .

Here I'd get my independence

Sure I would have to put in the...Read More

	For several years
	a photograph of my grandfather,
	my mother’s father,
	hung on my living room wall
	There’s no date on his portrait; 
	family lore says it was taken 
	shortly before he deserted his family.
	He was a handsome man,
	easy with women, 
	or so I’ve...Read More

Whence Spring's Beauty
It’s October, we find time to go by the spring-house to get the tulips. It is time to prepare for winter and the inevitable coming of spring.  The bulbs look hopelessly dead and ugly, rather pitiful in fact. ...Read More

The Chimney
A chimney on a low rise standing sentinel 
On the loosely scattered outskirts of town.
A reminder of an old house built by hand, 
The home around the hearth long fallen down.

The silvery frost covering the remnants 
Of the old broken...Read More

First Date

Under the Waterfall
Wings flutter
     off in the distance
as I shuffle through these stones,
tasting the energy trapped in each,
scouring my lands
         for my lost crystal,
that which can mend
what I’ve torn asunder.

where mom makes the bed, smoothing the sheets

Company Notice
In the hallway, was the memo.
All avoided it! Some walked
around, the back way, past cubicles,
the copy room, to avoid it.
Being Friday, no one, I mean
no one, wanted to read it.
I took a chance. What do
I have to lose? I told...Read More

Five flagstone from the bus stop
Outside the News and sweetshop door
The start of Eaton Road
The next left down East Prescot Road
Woodbourne winds around the back

Grandmother used

of round, metal tub
that we put the Christmas tree in
to soak her laundry
before she washed it.
She used the same tub
to clean a chicken she'd kill,
holding it upside down by the legs
and chopping off its head with an...Read More
