May 2020 – Bye, bye

June 15, 2020 § Leave a comment

25th May

The air is so light,

no wonder night falls softly

like a purple net.


I wish I could sleep

on a field, or at least not

to be anywhere


near to whatever

could provoke winter’s return,

ever again. Like


a child’s biggest wish.

27th May

Nothing can blow up

wishes faster than north winds.

Self confident like


a Scot in a kilt,

move sun and light farther south.

The trees now resist,


bent and return fast

into line. No one tells them

what to do in May.


They’re full with birds’ nests.
