by the coastward path
the stems of viper's-bugloss
coil in the breeze
gallows field
a painted lady's wings
unfurl on hemp-agrimony

the fanning
of a collared dove's
tail feathers...
evening light cascades
across the cemetery

Monday, 24 August 2009

rain-mist up the steep battlefield ranks of spear-thistles
at the end of a lane on the downs windmill-sails slowly turn

Saturday, 15 August 2009

all the shovelers up-ending August dusk
his summer hat
shadowing the weir-sped flow
among loosestrife
a fisherman mumbles
into the tributary

spear-thistles
I snag my fingers
on bramble thorns

mid-innings lull
long leg chews the fat
with a dog-walker

balmy evening
an Elvis impersonator
does it his way
