              passing traffic...
              through old glass their lights
                        shifting colours & shadows

Sunday, 23 December 2012

work bound—
drizzle in wind
smarts my face

Friday, 21 December 2012

                   under clear water...
                   for a moment the coot
                   becomes a black dart

Wednesday, 19 December 2012

open honey pot...
a line of ants march in
and out in parallel

Monday, 17 December 2012

                      swell of the river—
                      a few raindrops cling
                      to each bare branch

Thursday, 13 December 2012

at the day’s end...
by degrees the sun
turns the houses gold

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

     melancholy day—
     on the concrete ground
     a dry shrivelled leaf

Saturday, 8 December 2012

      still clear day—
      a sudden gust frees
      a deluge of leaves

Sunday, 2 December 2012

local restaurant...
I choose to be seated
by the goldfish tank

Friday, 30 November 2012

grey dusk—
moving branch shapes
join the fallen leaves

Sunday, 25 November 2012

from the valley floor...
the ends of a rainbow
join two distant  hills 

Thursday, 22 November 2012

almost dark...
between high-rise blocks
a band of  gold light

Sunday, 18 November 2012

in a clear blue sky
            just one...
white cloud

Wednesday, 14 November 2012

after rain...
the ground covered
in skeletal leaves

St. James' Park, London - November 2012

                   the lake at dusk...
                   suddenly a passing coot
                   gives a goose a peck

Thursday, 8 November 2012

-------------- Branches --------------

                 waiting for a bus—
                 a crow lands nimbly
                 on a thin branch  

Tuesday, 6 November 2012

                  park drinking fountain...
                  my boyhood memories
                  clogged & rusty

Sunday, 4 November 2012

         frantic moment...
         swan & gulls squabble
         over a slice of bread

Friday, 2 November 2012

moving left to right...
a huge sun emerges
from behind cloud

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

a low sun jiggles
on the window pane

Tuesday, 30 October 2012

sky veined with orange—
on the clipped hedge
a layer of fallen leaves

Sunday, 28 October 2012

                       (Trafalgar Square, London - October 2012)
                                busy city centre—
                     such a radiant smile
                     from a passing stranger

Thursday, 25 October 2012

                 under overhanging trees
                      the stillness of a duck
                 on the park’s lake

Tuesday, 23 October 2012

                          seasons change—
                          yet throughout
                          the river flows

Saturday, 20 October 2012

from the moving train...
flashes of wine red
all along the green bank

Thursday, 18 October 2012

                      weather on the turn
leaves on the lawn
                      a myriad of colours

Wednesday, 17 October 2012

      at the lakeside’s edge...
every other bush
glows crimson red

Monday, 15 October 2012

sunken garden—
on a red berried twig
a frayed spider’s web

Saturday, 13 October 2012

a child again...
popping balsam seed pods
by the riverside

Wednesday, 10 October 2012

                                    open-air cafĂ©—
                        a mix of birds bustle 
                        over a few crumbs

Sunday, 7 October 2012

in a blue sky
strewn with white clouds...
pale silver moon

Monday, 1 October 2012

stiff breeze—from
the landing prickly case
a conker explodes

Saturday, 29 September 2012

city centre—
a warm smile from a stranger
    and the sun seems brighter 

Wednesday, 26 September 2012

trodden on...
a dandelion growing
in the sandy beach

Monday, 17 September 2012

lights of the town—
silhouettes of geese drift
across  the sky

Thursday, 13 September 2012

train delays—through
the dark carriage window
clouds bursting with light

Monday, 10 September 2012

              a dandelion flower
              on the roadside lawn

Friday, 7 September 2012

screech of seagulls...
their reflections colliding
in the mirror sea

Wednesday, 5 September 2012


Saturday, 25 August 2012

         just above the river...
         cabbage white & damselfly
         briefly cross paths

Monday, 20 August 2012

second day in a row...
a downy white feather
clinging to the footpath

Saturday, 18 August 2012

dazzling sunshine—
a dry green leaf
descends into shade

Tuesday, 14 August 2012

muggy afternoon...
my rucksack is pulling
me to the ground

Saturday, 11 August 2012

August weather's in and out—
today the sun shines brightly
and the nets billow

Wednesday, 8 August 2012

daybreak—the hum
of traffic mixing
         with the honking of geese 

Monday, 6 August 2012

thrusting upwards
through the unknown bush
a blackberry spear

Sunday, 22 July 2012

    empty courtyard—four
    buddleia spikes move lightly
    from side to side
