Tasting Night Air

The flavour of the air is different at other times of day. 

Tasting Night Air        -       28 Jan 23

A certain crispness to 
The night air 
Walking on the heath 
With my mouth open 
Tasting the flavours
And texture of the air 

An experience to be savoured.

Trying to return to vertically is not always easy. 

Down       -       27 Jan 23 

Involuntary change 
Of orientation can be painful 
Getting back from down 
Can be more so 

Personal experience, not to be recommended.

Time Play

In the morning nothing seems real. 

Time Play        -       25 Jan 23 


Nothing is real.

Waking Mysteries

In the night I stir and wonder. 

Waking Mysteries        -         24 Jan 23 

Who is speaking 
To the wind 
Disturbing the owls 
Keeping me waking 
In the mysteries 
Of night 

I never know.

Looking for something I have used before but now cannot be traced no matter where I look. 

Questing       -        23 Jan 23 

Dropped off the face 
Of the Earth 
Gone without a trace 
I have not given up 
I am still questing 
One day I shall find it 
I hope 

Life is a little emptier without it.

Slim Crescent

I never get to see them, either too much cloud or the wrong time of day. 

Slim Crescent       -      22 Jan 23

A slice carved from the sky 
Dangles above the horizon 
Moon sliver 
What is to come 
When the thin crescent 

I watch her whenever I can.

Where Does It Go

Trying to trace cables. 

Where Does It Go      -      21 Jan 23 

Stubbornly unconnected 
Nothing wants to 
Indicate where it should be 
Where does it go 
A plea 
A desperate request
Cannot see any connection 

Almost a supplication.

Today I Watch

I always watch. 

Today I Watch        -        20 Jan 23

Nothing better to do 
The day gives special 
Pleasure to the watchers 
As they observe 
My turn today 
I watch carefully 

Sometimes gentle intervention is necessary.

No Such Thing

What a coincidence they say. 

No Such Thing        -       19 Jan 23 

When Soul makes 
A request 
The universe answers 
No such thing 
As a coincidence 

It only seems that way to an untrained mind.

Little Talk

In a moment between words, the silence is deafening. 

Little Talk         -        18 Jan 23

Listening to the silence 
Of little talk 
Words do not matter 
Only the space between sounds 
Carries the required information 
In the silence information flows 

Words are not always necessary.
