18th January 2017

new year...
one more turn
around the sun




17th January 2017

church bells...
two choirboys in the graveyard
swap marbles




16th January 2017

listening to voids
the merest shift
in the eagle's glance



15th January 2017

sunday again...
a cloud of starlings
rains down



14th January 2017

wild wind... 
my kite at the end
of its tether



13th January 2017

break of day...
the subdued whistling
of the postman





10th January 2017

night breeze,
a frog lands on
number seven





9th January 2017

dying day...
along the lagoon
a reverent silence



8th Hanuary 2017

bitter cold
from shore to shore
the weight of silence



6th January 2017

blue ice...
every breath snatched
by the wind





5th January 2017

country churchyard...
no epitaph for a dove



4th January 2017

going home
a chaffinch on the edge
of twilight



3rd Jamuary 2107

from a neutral plain
a blackness of crows takes flight








2nd January 2107

night light...
polishing up
my Shakespeare






1st January 2107

beginning over...
a small beacon
along the way



31st December 2016

out of the chaos
a wish for peace...
shazam!



30th December 2016

evening stroll...
a flake on the tip
of your eyelash




30th December 2016

long
dry
summer
from
the
lion's
mouth
a
spider






27th December 2016

monochrome morning...
only a chattering
of magpies



26th December 2016

morning shroud
the new moon fades
to blue




25th December 2016

nativity play...
the smallest angel straightens 
her halo





24th December 2016

out of the gloaming
a shining new day answers
my prayer





23rd December 2016

sun-drenched
she surrenders all her gold
to the night



22nd December 2016

last light..
gossiping starlings cede
to the nightingale



21st Devember 2016

(in memorium for Ralph)

moonstruck...
his fingers caressing my
neck



20th December 2016

soltice...
a last waltz for the
ice queen



19th December 2016

sultry night
the mocking bird perfects
his haiku
