The coil of an ammonite
curls like young bracken
but is trapped in stone.

Ideas need to defy gravity,
escape the cage
and soar untamed.

Sunset at the Holt

Oh, joy for the black,

green, spotty, stripey wellies

which give rain power!

Monty Don's Japanese Garden

Contemplate seas
of gravel with placed stones
as moments of perception.

Big concepts in small zen spaces:
Tiny acts all have consequences.

Lechlade Church

Mouths open, spewing
Waste for hundreds of years,
The gargoyles have jaw ache.
