set in an azure sky...
a first quarter moon
the colour of pearl

Saturday, 25 February 2012

low hum of traffic...
a woodpigeon coos
out of tune     

Thursday, 23 February 2012

setting sun...
along the lush green bank
a dusting of poppies

Tuesday, 21 February 2012

bench in the square...
on opening his sandwiches
a blackbird appears

Thursday, 16 February 2012

approaching home...
suddenly a blackbird
bursts from the hedge

Saturday, 11 February 2012

almost twilight...
the setting sun
cuts a roof in half

Friday, 10 February 2012

almost midnight...
a sneeze echoes
through the flats

Wednesday, 8 February 2012

sunny day...
a leaf rolls across
the last of the snow 

Tuesday, 7 February 2012

the thaw’s underway...
a mix of footprints remain
on islands of snow    

Sunday, 5 February 2012

first snow—in the dark yard
a blue football
sporting a cap of grey-white         

Friday, 3 February 2012

slowly sinking behind
the peaks made of clouds
a huge setting sun

Wednesday, 1 February 2012

the river at dawn—
chugging through white fog
several boats
