Saxophone

Today’s September 2014 poem-a-day. I’ve been listening to a new jazz recording a friend has given me.

The elegiac quality of saxophone
eases its way into my mind,
quietly asserting its charm,
sliding deftly into its place
in my aural memory,
as if it had never been away.

A Small Twitterverse

This week’s prompt from @fieryverse on Twitter.

#fieryverse prompt ’Say it Slow’

Say goodbye
slow…
…ly
I don’t
want
you
to
go.

Controlled Burn

Here’s a wee poem I wrote for the Twitter #fieryverse prompt ‘controlled burn’.

He falls,
rope wrapped around one forearm,
the other controlling his descent.
Watching the play of muscle and skill,
I burn.

Sea Glass

A haiku about our trip to Goring on the south coast of England yesterday. While we were swimming and beach combing in the sunshine, two miles away Worthing was deluged with rain. We could see thunderstorms crossing the water, but none came near us.

Sea glass at Goring;

the boys are flint knapping,

the water cool salt green.
