Rook Takes Pawn
rook, bird, games, lust, sexy,
Clever you are
playing your game

However preened your plumes

far from blind
Rook on the rocks, a SANDCASTLE
Written large & form erroding
Shore & folly show.'
Blending light & water almost solid.

For all the night she trod the furrowed earth
As she has walked all winter in her wake
In seeking for the child she brought to birth

too complex, nor could his brain...

The jackdaw is a curious bird

His genial “tchak, tchak” can be heard –

Our world without colour

A dome of diamonds floating on infinity
Moonlight softly slicing the shadows
