Archives for the month of: January, 2021

A month of short verse –

Marking each day as it comes ~

Dry January.

IKEA kitchen –

Slowly install it myself ~

Humming old Norse songs.

Church bells ring for six –

Birds crankily settle down ~

Rain falling, softly.

New hyacinth blooms –

Filling the room with their scent ~

Ignoring the rain.

Pruning a bonsai –

It’s with me for safekeeping ~

Promises honoured.

Missing spectacles –

Turn up weeks later, mangled ~

With kitty teeth marks…

Bright frosty morning –

Halve an apple for blackbird ~

Precise little pecks.

Wearing a face mask –

My glasses are steaming up ~

Beware the lampposts!

At Killiney Beach –

Perfect for a lockdown walk ~

Too many think so.

Bipinnate, glaucous –

The Acacia’s new growth ~

Asking to be touched.
