Passing on a watch –

Make sure date and time are right ~

A hug from my son.

Burdened by their weight –

Gladioli bent over ~

Ready for the vase.

Wake up drenched in blood –

Look for wound but can’t find one ~

Wake up drenched in sweat.

Young dead soldiers –

No time left for ‘grave concerns’ ~

Nor those that voice them.

Waking from a dream –

Checking that it was a dream ~

The wound isn’t there.

Blackberries ripen –

Honey Spurge seed pods explode ~

Curious robin.

September cold switch –

After a sparrow summer ~

Other birds return.

Making decisions –

Not always that straightforward ~

The road not taken.

Music for Airports –

Making plans for the Grand Tour ~

Using Baedeker’s Guide.

The thrum of sparrows –

Lily scent, red blackberries ~

A summer ending.
