February small stone 28

Squash flower 


open for the first time 
faint green lines 
radiate outwards across 
bright yellowish orange 
crepe paper like petals 
with a centre  
a circle of orange dots 
held up 
by tiny white hearts

Immersion 


Sometimes 
the only thing that matters 
is
what colour should I use?

Matched 


A mass of children emerge 
through the cinema door 
Ready to separate 
to find their waiting adults

From yesterday 


Singing together 
The sound of the wind 
Beautiful

Large leaves curl 
at their edges 
Look like they want
to wrap the sunlight

Class talk 
Nerves and tears 
a wanting to escape 
I can't do it for you 
or I would 


Friendship and tips received 
It will be fine

A group of teens 
wait for a chartered bus 


What adventures 
will their day contain?

A 10 year old voice 
pops out 
from amongst the electronic noise 


"I'm bored" 


The space of a Sunday 
looms ahead

Discovery 


An artist 
previously unknown to me 
her work 
brightens the computer screen 
awakens my imagination

Birds making such a racket 
Are they singing 
"thank you for the rain"?

Accidental door slam 


The sound of anger 


worry relieved 
with a smile

Monday morning 


a sudden whirl 
of ideas and organisation 
begins

each day 


a moment 
recurring 
I sit 
at the computer 
he leaps  
purring

beginnings 

in a tight curl 
new leaves 
soon to gently open 
reach out

OPENED FOR INSPECTION 
I imagine 
a Customs officer 
reading poetry

peaches and rosemary 


no photograph 
not even the very best 
could ever capture 
the floating scent 
the beauty

Morning walk 


What started 
as reluctant walking 
ended 
as enjoyable calm

cat 


sitting in confidence 
staring at the door 
secure in the belief 
his wish will be granted

his paws 
my fingers 
hover in argument 
over the keyboard 
the pen 


comfort 
so precarious today

the tree 
just around the corner  
bright red has changed 
to orange

Words from the radio 
blend with my thoughts 
to leave sleep behind 
it's a struggle today
