Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star


Twinkle twinkle Christmas star
Winter glistens in the dark
Wishes magically fulfil
And nothing seems impossible
Wrap up hope and keep it warm
Share and shelter from the storm

Laugh and live and dare to dream
While moments, choices, chances teem
Persist and push until it seems
Things can be better than they’ve been

Twinkle twinkle Christmas star
Winter glistens in the dark
Wishes magically fulfil
And nothing seems impossible
Explore and search
and distance gaze
Keep wondering and being amazed

Missing

Sad hand
Forlorn
On hard road
Under cold sun
Fingers drooping over once proud fur cuff
Lost and,
As if indignity was not enough,
Alone.

Invitation




Come into my world with me

Rage inside my soul

Tell me how things ought to be

Make me face them all




22nd November 2013





Realisation



Edit, consolidate
Pull together
Celebrate

Enjoy, integrate
Live forever
Appreciate

All we have 
Inside, around
In a slither of time
Constrained, unbound

all
we have
all
we have
we
have it all

Edit, consolidate
Pull together
Celebrate

Enjoy, integrate
Live forever
Appreciate

all
we have
all
we have
we
have it all

Inhabitation















Strange

Unexpected

Delusion?


Conversation

Sensation

Brain tumour?


If this is true
There may be jostling down the road
Or an expanded heart

Cockletree





















Hello tree
For a while it will be me
Who tends and cares
Watches you in wind
In sun and snow
Greets your buds
Adores your bloom
But in a moment
All too soon
While you still sway and stretch and grow
I will go
You will remain
Loving life
Wind, sun and rain and then, again
Someone else may say
Hello

This Morning















Bridge to another way - protector
Link to a different view - befriender

Gentle judge and honest guide
Rain fell inside the car
Along Queensferry Road
This morning

Linked-In













Part of me will pass with you
It's the strangest feeling
Part of her you'll carry through
It's the strangest feeling

Parts of them will cease to play
Part of you won't stay away

It's the strangest feeling

Gaps you leave
Space you fill
Give and take
The overspill
Osmotic spirits
Merge and mix
Perform impossible
Magic tricks

It's the strangest feeling

For a Man, and his Lady














For a man ...

riches, treasures
other points of view
tales of adventures
colourful, true
outraged from Pilton
stakes in the ground
rooted, taller
flowering sound
open house garden
trust of a child
disappointed and broken
angry and wild
precious connection
shared moments in space
in time, interaction
acceptance and peace


... and his Lady

different dimension
valerian steel
truth in perception
proud of what's real
strength of a lion
fierce as a knight
deeply protecting
refusing no fight
towering presence
invisibility shield
place and position
honoured and sealed

War zone

It’s when the hardness disappears
Stuff is solid when you touch it, but that just feels like a trick
You know you can walk right, fall right, disappear right through it
Schloop – the hole will vanish in an instant

Weekend

Sunday dawning
Conversations
Inside my head

Sunshine yawning
Observations
Push me out of bed
