Leaf colour

Husband = exercise bike: Me = the real thing

What's he missing? Space,

Catkins, views, raw air, puddles -

bet he's warmer though!

Time and winds carve sands
to desert roses - like love -
exquisite flowering.


The year's cycle is
memories' stumbling block now
that you are not here.

Bright, white snowdrops ease
Shrunk, winter souls like a
Hot bath for stiff limbs.

St Albans Abbey

Was this the head whose

brain wrote Oedipus - a life

scarred by hidden acts?


Turbulent water
has quietened now leaving wakes
of edged memories.
