June – week 2


singing proudly

from his gutter nest —

tree sparrow



of faded newsprint dreams

in and out of the hedgerows

a poem written

on a sparrow’s wing


flame of red campion

from a chasm in the cliffs

a puffin emerges



in her party hair…

the swallow’s tail


gannets soar…

the sea and sky

compare blues


some moments

so sublime

they never were…

the wafer of blue

between sky and sea


jackdaws patrol —

whatever happens

the kittiwakes

sit tight

to protect their eggs


I would walk again

the eggshell path

of my life

to feel this wind

lifting my wings


clifftop nests

downy chicks peep

from the guillemot’s breast


from a ledge of sky

I watch the skimming stones

of your words


full-circle rainbows
