the day fading—swathes
of daffodils hold onto
the last of the light

Friday, 25 March 2011

an icy wind—above
the town’s clamour
the cawing of crows

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

on the ground
a dusting of mahonia petals...
in the air its scent

Sunday, 20 March 2011

first light—
a grey squirrel lands
on the bird table

Friday, 18 March 2011

flitting noisily through
shadow and light

Wednesday, 16 March 2011

morning rush…
each litterbin in the road
topped with snow

Saturday, 12 March 2011

fading light
on the park’s island
the heron’s stillness

Thursday, 10 March 2011

february full moon
latticed when viewed
through the twigs of a tree

Sunday, 6 March 2011

lazy afternoon
two canal moorhens
square up for a fight

Friday, 4 March 2011

almost spring—
from the landing blackbird
a short burst of song     

Wednesday, 2 March 2011

stiff breeze…
dry twigs tremble
in a spider’s web
