tea break
the mechanic sweats
on a chair of tyres

- Blithe Spirit

cut leaf beech
a grebe's last look
before its dive

- Wing Beats
black geese
stream across the estuary
to Blue House Farm
my threadbare thoughts
strewn by the wind

- Eucalypt

evening sun
the captain waves long leg
a little finer

pipistrelles
a swamp cypress overhangs
the lily pond
the bonfire embers
smoulder on to sundown
honking geese

baroque mansion
a golden plover stops
on the south lawn
sunlit dew
the cock pheasant circles
his three-strong harem
leaping muntjacs
the earth's reddish tinge
this first light

over the lych gate
to the Jesuits' graveyard
a pair of jackdaws
