Mizzly Morning Mist


Maundering magpie
Keeps me company for a spell —
Mizzly morning mist

The Bowl Is Empty


With a hearty gulp
and a belch — sudden laughter!

The bowl is empty

Tugging At My Shoelaces



On a shingle beach
Beneath the pavillion of
A frosty-blue sky
Waves frolic around my feet
Tugging at my shoelaces

Stùirn-Stàirn (Stomp-Stomp)

Stùirn-stàirn, stùirn-stàirn
Fuaim mo bhòtannan
Cnagadh 'san t-sneachda
Stùirn-stàirn, stùirn-stàirn
Uachdar sgrathach
A' briseadh le bragail!

***

Stomp-stomp, stomp-stomp
The thump of my boots
As I walk in the snow
Stomp-stomp, stomp-stomp
It's white, crusty surface
Crackling below!

Bright

























I looked up tonight
And there was your shooting star —
Bright!
In the night sky

Rebirth


The lily slumbers
Beneath a mantle of snow —
Dreaming of rebirth

Madness


"Hurry! Hurry! We'll be late!"
 I say to my dog who is
 Taking his sweet time
 He cocks his head, 
 Clearly puzzled
 Certain I am going...
 

 Mad

Porch Light


Walking in the woods
On a frosty winter morn
In the hoary hush before dawn
And softly glowing in the southern sky
A paper lantern to light the way
Now wasn't that thoughtful?
Seems You left the porch light on!

Twinkle


A snowflake alights
On the back of my bare hand
Twinkles...then it's gone

Rain On The Window

photo of stacks of hay in a field with reflections of the sun and rain on the window

Beam of sunlight flits
Amidst the golden stacks of hay —

Rain on the window
