Bird Feed Under My Window
blackbird, bird, christian, community, food, freedom, mystery, nature,

And spectacular tactics of birds.
Birds come in different colors...

There were birds on the rooftops. There were birds everywhere.
But one certain blackbird thought he could be best.
An Insignificant Life - collaboration with The Seeker
blackbird, absence, break up, divorce,
That godless sound
His head explodes at 6:01am
Same as every day
He falls out of bed
Steps on the cat
Slides into his slippers
Shuffles to the kitchen
Puts the coffee on
Bumps his head on the cupboard door
Sits down and looks...
Frank and Rose
blackbird, for her, for him, husband, love, wife,

They'd watch a sunset together and wonder on the miracle...

from the prying
Pride stops his soul
Sun burns his
blue eyes blind
Too long in the long shadows
a sunshineless cage blue sky denied
He has lost...

AT ONE WITH NATURE
The sun shines, brightly lights my day. My garden verdant many hues of green. Greater speedwell, resilient, blooms no matter the season. Late spring, early summer it explodes. Late Jack Frost, it...
blackbird, confusion, lifeme, light, hope, light, me,
It’s been a very reasonable day. Just a light shower or two
walking along these country lanes, round each corner, a different view.
But it’s getting late now and darkness will soon be here
there’s a haunting sound...
Ghostly echoes of a colliery's past
blackbird, beautiful, scary,
The Ings showed the scars of a dust blooded past
The heavy air clouds came in way too fast
A pool outcrop showed a shining light
The air grew thin on the Ings that night
Noises were heard, movement...
The Vanishing Skylark

A song that since creation had filled our country skies.
A song that has for centuries filled mans heart with joy,
A song that brought back memories...
On my Death
blackbird, absence, death, fate, goodbye, heaven, miss you,
To the gravedigger, dear sir

As a flower fall from Eden, I hear the angels sing
While I slightly twist and turn in the God’s acre, so...
blackbird, animal, bird, freedom, life,
A Christmas walk in soft sun of winter
Across crisp fields of umber and green,
A sharp breeze blowing with freedom
On their faces, aglow with the hope
Of seeing one again – a bird; their bird,
blackbird, courage, depression, emotions, encouraging, happiness, psychological, self,
My walk, I strut
Just to stiffle the hurt
Only, to protect my heart
From the world, that won't play it's part
The world that doesn't understand that
Beyond the mask
Is the imperfectly perfect.
It's perfect, I know
04-22-18 - A haiku ANTHOLOGY
mallards... a pair
koi carp can't compete... duck feet
strang orange shapes
fickle spring... climate changing
Jenny wren... begging
let summer have its way
seasons confound spring

sloe... blackthorn blossoms
cover branches... bumper crop
blackbird, adventure, mystery, night, night,
I do not know?
Visions comes and Visions goes
Deep within my soul lies the reflections of an aging soul
A distance murmured cry was heard
From the echoes of a songless wind
Singing of a song long forgotten
I cannot say that I...
Transport For London Shaman
blackbird, blessing, forgiveness, journey, mystery, silence, spring, sunshine,
The TFL Shaman- A Journey Home.
Raindrops trickle down the misty train windows,
Obscuring views of coloured graffiti,
Works of passion sprayed on to embankment walls.
Bright colours splattered onto neglected structures,
Wild Statements of art,
Arising from the urban ashes...
Black Bird and Midnight Butterfly
blackbird, baptism, beauty,
There she sits, a "Black Bird on a wire"
On wings repose "she sings of light"
"Broken People" gather beneath her
People who have seen the "Faces of Storm"
Accused, Yet "guilty of innocence"
I become an "Unaware...
What is Jazz
blackbird, cheer up, chocolate, cry, depression, music,

The type where you play each note as late as possible.
The type that holds beautiful memories.
The type that will have you unaware that
Your foot is tapping to the beat of the...
She Comes, Part One

As she has walked all winter in her wake
In seeking for the child she brought to birth
The maiden bride whom Hades chose to take

Singer of the Song
blackbird, music, nature, poetry,
My sweet sojourn has sung the hum
of song in wind....
For all the forest sings, beauteous ring
most melodious on the wings
of 'poor' creatures, feathered beings;
blackbird, abuse, angst, bird, freedom, metaphor, power, slavery,
Trapped like a bird in this filthy cage
Where I am starved of compassion and understanding
Left to survive on meager crumbs
Of affection and tolerance
Held captive and unable to fly and be free
DIGGING INTO THE BEATLES' MIND
blackbird, confusion, girlfriend-boyfriend, nostalgia, romance, girl, song, girl,
How much sorrow can you take,
when all you think of is true joy?
Very lonely but not hopeless
until another sunrise comes...

for the sweet lips of that young boy!
O lonely girl listening to...
