Lent week 5

The vibrant burnt umber orange
Of the Skipper's photo was gone,
'De-saturation' had taken place:
The greys of the result were dull.
Hopes lost, disappointment, let down
Are colourless too; vivid ideas
Become trampled, muddy and
To 're-saturate' in need of will.
Will power can grow flabby.

March 29th
Brexit starts today;
The trigger letter given:
Trade rebirth begins?

Revelling in the warmth of the day
A holly blue plays the air waves,
Never landing but just dancing
Tantalisingly in and out of sight.
Hours later, Madame Butterfly
With her kimono 'wings' and grace
Sings her love for a man whose flown.
She is trapped in her love anguish
Pinned down by misery til death
Let's her go: like the holly blue
She finds joy in liberation.
