Somber swings

Somber swings

a dismal edged guillotine

severing possibility.

t’s a bitter sharp taste to a dream

When prospects are soured by reality.

The wee ones

Their laughter trickled in

from the garden.

Fairy light decadent bells

ringing of innocent mischief.

This morn’s wail and tantrums

long since replaced

by joyous squeals and giddiness

so utterly contagious

hearts beam and swell berry ripe,

bulging with the warm

rich boon

that parenthood can often be blessed with.

H#9

A lone feather floats

composing a symphony

cadenza for air

The Ex-ecutioner

Had I known our final walk was to the gallows

I would have counted the steps.

You gave nothing away

no last requests.

The noose looped round my neck;

I leaned to kiss.

Trapdoor released;

you turned from my lips.

I dropped, slipknot tightened;

you delivered the last rights,

it’s over.”

You left me hanging

when you fled crying like a mourning wife.

She loves me or not.

She loves me.

She loves me not.

But what of the petals

faith has forgot?

Of those that fell

before the final

plucked prediction,

can one among them

foretell of her heart’s

true conviction?

From a Wish

From a wish
to the wings
of a breath,
to candle’s flicker and
flame’s sudden death,
travelling
smoke trails
transcending
as it dissipates
into the ether
in good faith;
and the wisher
filled with hope,
waits

day looms

From the soft pastel fabrics of dawn

to the ghostly hue textiles of twilight

the day dresses solely

for the night.
