I was…

I was drowning when I wrote this,

please excuse me if the words are blurred…

I was there at Bosworth Field

when I waved ‘goodbye’ to Richard the Third.

I was lonely as a cloud

approached me and it asked the way;

I didn’t know where I was,

so I sent him off to Carbis Bay.

Off to Looe Island

Off to Looe Island

Off to the island,

an adventure to find;

a voyage by boat;

we love when we float;

(we think)

we wouldn’t like it

if we were to sink.

Yet another rainy day haiku from the mind of one who has recently been rained down upon more than a Summer season should reasonably allow.

Looking out windows,

seeing the pourtentous sky

relieving itself.

A Seagull Haiku

A Seagull Haiku

Peck, peck – chip? No – peck;

strut, launch, fly, scan, detect, plan;

wait… wait… swoop! Reward.

The Old Hall Bookshop, Looe.

The Old Hall Bookshop, Looe.

Out of the madness of milling pools of humanity,

into the quiet of a calm and needed sanctuary,

I go;

stepping from the uncomfortable

into the sublime,

be it for the shortest amount of time.

I perch upon a sofa and breathe in

the outpourings of so many authors’ words,

and I becalm.

Standing at the Gate.

Standing at the Gate.

I lean on the gate

and survey the world;

at least, the world within my grasp;

for there is much more than that beyond

my gaze, beyond my ken;

but what I have, I clasp.

We’d really love to go to Looe;

but, we have other things to do.
