Ms. Hens and Chickens

Lovely finches draw hens
of varied links to Bath,
studded with gorgeous pigs.

Shadows of Austen
Haunt stylish stones clashing with
static traffic jams.

Millau Bridge

Foster spans the Tarn
with iron angels bearing
airy roads on high.
(The Millau Bridge is the highest bridge in the world.)

Sunday 7 September 2008


Season of cobwebs,
Daddy-long-legs and decisions:
To clean or leave them?

Tuesday 2 September 2008


Precious, black touchstone,
used to test gold, spark hints of
magic chimeras.

Touch on a leaf

Sun stabbing a leaf
Making dull green glow with light;
Stop-see- save the now.


Tired walking feet spur fantasies
of the slop and slut of my slippers.
