Urban Collage

Green shoes, red dress, an eagle smiles,
below, garden pools melt the sun,
water glints on wet chessboard tiles,
green shoes, red dress, an eagle smiles,
patchwork suburbs, car park  aisles,
a thin man eats a currant bun,
green shoes, red dress, an eagle smiles,
below, garden pools melt the sun.

Towards a Waterfall

Sitting on a soft river bank
waiting for some inspiration,
mosquitoes in the shadows dank
sitting on a soft river bank.

Thoughts gently flow into a blank,
a period of gestation,
sitting on a soft river bank
waiting for some inspiration.

Tiger Lily

Bold sparks of inspiration fly,
Your buds reveal an orange heart,
Tendril stamens caressing the sky,
Bold sparks of inspiration fly,
Not for you a gentle lovelorn sigh,
Rather your love shall be a work of art,
Bold sparks of inspiration fly,
Your buds reveal an orange heart.

Wet Twilight

Portents of prophecies from aeons past
Indigo lights up as the sun sets low
Hedgerows quiver as long shadows recast
Portents of prophecies from aeons past
As golden light fades it’s time to hold fast
To fond promises made a long time ago
Portents of prophecies from aeons past
Indigo lights up as the sun sets low

Late Summer

Late summer sun gilding flowering herbs
A butterfly drinks while a spider weaves
A soft haze settles over the suburbs
Late summer sun gilding flowering herbs
A morning coolness where nothing disturbs
Bunches of lavender under the eaves
Late summer sun gilding flowering herbs
A butterfly drinks while a spider weaves

Volcano

Too long dictators let the masses bleed
Over a volcano crackles lightning
Increasing repression sows a  seed
Too long dictators let the masses bleed
Gunmen with  rubber bullets intercede
The tyrants’ fists of fear are tightening
Too long dictators let the masses bleed
Over a volcano crackles lightning
